Fall might seem like forever away right about now, but when you’ve got wedding inspiration this pinch-me-perfect, it doesn’t even matter. Not one bit. We’re talking goodies straight from Grey Likes Wedding’s Secrets of a Stylist Workshop with photography by Diana McGregor + Blush Wedding Photography, florals from Anna Le Pley Taylor…and that dusty blue gown by Tara La Tour? Don’t even get me started! Dive in head first right over here.
From Blush Wedding Photography… I’ve always thought, the key to good design whether it is in fashion, interior design, photography, or your wedding, is to take a classic idea and give it a modern fresh take. This is why I absolutely love stylist, Summer Watkins twist on a fall wedding.
First, she uses a lot of gold elements, which is in style at the moment and embodies the traditional fall colours: red, orange and yellow. It also brings an element of luxury and elegance which contrasts nicely the rustic wood setting. Then Summer brings in an unexpected twist: blue! Blue would be a colour associated with any other season, except fall! But looking at this shoot you can see it looks amazing and totally works.
To further tie in the fall feel, fall elements are brought in such as pears on the cake, as place card holders and infused in the signature cocktail. As well as, leaves into the flower arrangements. Gold deer figurines adorn the table to add an element of whimsy and echo the outdoor woodsy backdrop.
But my favorite element is probably the blue wedding dress by Tara La Tour. Last year I saw a few blush coloured wedding dresses, but never blue. It has a modern, yet surprisingly sophisticated feeling about it. The detachable belt on the dress is a nice featured on the dress.
All in all, I just love how this wedding inspiration really crosses over different styles, from modern to rustic to elegant. I feel that is the key to good timeless design.
