From Hoste EventsMixed metals and the 2016 Pantone colors were the inspiration for this shoot. The idea of grounded luxury came across in the mixed metals of gold, copper, zinc, bronze, brass and rose gold that were used. As well, the Pantone colors were picked up using raw crystals of celestite for the blue and rose quartz for the pink which also happens to be the stone that symbolizes eternal love. The mixed metals and raw crystals contrasted yet also complemented the natural setting of this historic ranch that sits at the top of stunning rolling hills of citrus and avocado groves. In that same way the unexpected combination of the hardness of the metals with the softness of the flowers and fabrics came together beautifully.

With the California drought, lots of tumbleweeds dot the country side but the texture of the tumbleweed and the organic shapes were very interesting so one was spray painted copper and then had floral accents added which made for a very unique and new idea for a “chandelier” for the ceremony.

Depression era glass in subtle hues of pink and blues brought a charming softness to the copper and rose gold edged marble chargers. Garden inspired textural white flowers with pops of blush and blue were the perfect compliment. The place cards are anchored by rose quartz that were dipped in copper. Copper flatware popped on top of a zinc tabletop. Modern swirls draping from chairs blended beautifully with the table.

The stunning fireplace on property was used as the backdrop for the array of tasty sweets that were done to perfection in the inspiration colors as well as textures of the shoot.
