Inspired by Dutch Masters still life paintings, this lavish wedding inspiration shoot styled by East Made Co is nothing short of transcendent. With flourishing flowers, these fresh and romantic photos by Shotgunning for Love capture the lingering chill of winter while welcoming in the warmth and sun of spring. This stunning editorial has transported us into a fairytale, and we know this is true because there’s not just one cake, but TWO!
From the photographer, Nikki with Shotgunning for Love: Two side-by-side vignettes evoked the warmth and chill of spring. Each tablescape featured decadent styling and edited maximalism. In the warm vignette, you can almost play eye-spy with how many fun props are placed throughout, including live goldfish, exotic fruits, and curated antique pieces while cooler the cooler vignette includes taxidermy pieces and other alternative edible eats.
Each detail was thoughtfully considered, including the painterly floral installations with parrot tulips by Nava Floral. The florals on the artisan cake were crafted, petal by petal in sugar by Trouvaille Bakery. One of my favorite elements are the hand painted backdrops by JRD Art Shop used to enhance the painterly mood of each vignette. Two complete calligraphy suites were created for each vignette as well, with artisan handmade paper and an organic calligraphy style.
We love whimsical weddings that whisk us away to a fairytale land much like this gorgeous wedding in Dallas.
