How do we love this modern femme wedding inspiration? Let me count the ways. 1. The soft blush tulle backless gown matched with a waterfall of flowers in violet, rose, butter and pastel green. 2. The plush velvet chairs across from an eclectic tablescape filled with leather calligraphed place cards, vintage glasses and an antique candelabra supporting flickering pink tapers. 3. The soaring floral pillars decorating the ceremony space with serious punch and even more motion… Truth be told, we could go on forever, but we’ll keep it brief and let the images from A.J. Dunlap Photography do the talking. Behold greatness, everyone!
From the photographer, A.J. of A.J. Dunlap Photography: This shoot started as the intern project for the venue and turned into something that wedding dreams are made of. That’s what happens when you give a florist like Meristem creative freedom this is what happens. She took their design vision and made it come to live in the the most gorgeous floral installation I’ve ever seen: an alter adorned with persimmons, greenery and hues of pink and orange, and extra wide cascading bouquets that will take your breath away.
Besides the florals, the designers pulled together a blush long sleeve gown to compliment the color palette and added in some fun leather touches like the place cards and signage. Then you have the cake artist, who somehow always manages to design a cake that pulls the entire vision together.
From start to finish this shoot will inspire brides to think outside of the box and to trust their vendors to do what they do best…create.
