We love that today’s Canadian team of vendors decided to tackle a shoot designed around the Southern romance of Savannah, Georgia. The group (including Rhythm Photography, Kate MacKenzie Weddings, and Benny & ViV, to name a few) used a color palette of grey and peach with a bit of gold to keep things glam but still refined and inspired. We also love the use of floral ice cubes here for a great visual pick-me-up!
From the creative director, Kate MacKenzie Weddings: This shoot was inspired by sweet whimsical ‘Savannah’ touches, and richer, generations-old accents and textures. We wanted to illustrate a more ‘haunted’ side of a Savannah-scape – not the carefree, southern girl trend, but rather a decidedly more somber scene. We shot at a venue north of Toronto called the Heintzman House, which in so many ways was reminiscent of the interior of a plantation. The word ‘plantation’ seems almost fabled as it carries such a heavy, dark history with it – but there was something deeply meaningful about capturing “Savannah” with all its peaches, floral ice cubes, romantic blooms, dripping with amaranthus and femininity, but staged against a more sophisticated, shadowed backdrop. We wanted to illustrate both aspects as beautifully and authentically as possible.
