Lush, Natural Inspiration Shoot at the Cathedral Of The Madeleine

If I could, I would crawl into this shoot and live amongst all the pretty forever. Styled to perfection by Erin Kate Photography and Soil & Stem, this gallery is overflowing with the kind of lush, floral-filled inspiration that will make your heart beat a bit faster this morning. See what I mean here.  


From Erin Kate Photography and Soil & StemGargoyles peered over the jagged pitches of the roof, while pigeons swooped and cooed around us during this lush courtyard styled shoot.

Our color palate really allowed us to focus on the simple, natural textures of our subject matter: the porous cement, heirloom silver, and the infinite patterns of layered greens that included ferns, eucalyptus, foraged vines, and incredible peppermint scented felt geranium.

Like freshly picked from an overgrown secret garden, our bridal bouquet was a bit wild, but also timeless. This beauty was hand-tied in antique French silk ribbon in the most beautiful shade of dove gray I’ve ever seen.

Other lovely details from the shoot…The bride wore a delicate chiffon gown. Her hair was styled in a simple twist bun adorned with vintage rhinestone barrettes. A guest sign-in book was created with an old book and maidenhair fern was pressed between the pages. Place cards were displayed on vintage silver forks that were wrapped in geranium leaves, fern, and soft blossoms. A cement cake stand displayed a lovely, chocolate naked cake with buttercream frosting spilling out between the layers.

We hope brides will find simple, clean beauty can pair well with unruly, lush stems in this elegant courtyard shoot.

Whimsical

From Brooke Stapleton PhotographyHannah and Cameron met while she was working at a hot dog stand and have been deeply in love ever since. They felt like their love story is a bit out of the ordinary and wanted their wedding to celebrate the abnormal and the quirky, giggly lovefest that is so, unmistakably theirs. Set in the backyard of a charming pink Salt Lake City home, their day included street tacos, badminton, croquet, and llamas. The bride wore a Tory Burch gown and held a bouquet with florals native to Columbia, where her brother currently lives. The reception was a laid-back party with loud music, loved ones, and lots of hugging and squeezing. Every detail of the wedding was so well-thought out and charming + so very THEM.

DIY Floral Jewelry

Flowers are hands-down my favorite wedding detail. They’re beautiful, symbolic, smell good. Simply nothing sets my imagination off more than a perfectly sculpted bouquet or an etherial floral crown, which is why I’m straight up obsessed with this DIY shoot form the brain trust of Lizy’s Lilies, D’Arcy Benincosa, and April Benincosa. Flower earrings? Brilliant! Take a peek at the full gallery for more floral fixations.

From D’Arcy Benincosa… Florals in the hair are popular, but what if you could take that natural feel, smell, and look of flowers and create stunning, living, flowing jewelry?

From DIY earrings to simple garland necklaces, this shoot brings new ideas to using flowers for a bride.

DIY Earrings:

Step 1: Gather your ingredients. A good rule of thumb is to have a leaf or piece of greenery for the backing and then lay a bud on top of it.

2. Prepare your focal flower. The focal flower needs to stay strong throughout a day filled with pictures and a night of dancing. For a flower an leaf, wire the stem by inserting the wire straight up through until it pokes just barely into the head of the flower. Trim your wire to the length of the stem.

3. Place your florals together. Wire the end of the florals and loop them to the ear piece.

4. Trim any extra wire or stems.
