Don’t mind us while we fawn over this glorious collaboration from Kari Ellen Events, Kate Foley Designs and Stephanie Brazzle Photography. This magnificent garden shoot is nothing short of divine – in fact, we love every polished detail from the majestically suspended petals to the dazzling gown to the candlelit ceremony space. Even the authentic love and playfulness of the couple has us giddy.
From the event designer, Kari Ellen Events: I was inspired by the lush garden at the venue Chapel Ana Villa and wanted to enhance the natural beauty by adding color to the shoot. I wanted to find a way to subtly bring in pops of fresh and bright colors in a soft and romantic whimsical way. The delicate hanging floral was the perfect mix of luxurious round peonies and garden roses with whimsical stems of ranunculus and hellebore intertwined, embodying the natural simplicity of the garden.
The collection of Tuscan inspired dinnerware complemented the venue and floral. The ceremony was highlighted by large windows and natural light with loose greenery and bronze candlesticks. The invitations and cake were painted with the light brushstrokes of watercolor, and the wedding gown’s abundance of lace and movement added to the organic and delicate feel of the shoot. The intimacy and passion portrayed by the models was a true display of their affection and love for each other as the couple was recently married and about to celebrate their one year anniversary.
