Think shades of lavender accented with metallics and mustard plus unstructured floral design for a truly bohemian look. Consider this gallery your guide to a wedding unlike any other with even more right over here.
From PJ Dunn of Going Lovely Events… Earlier this year, I got together with Carlie Statsky and we bonded over our love of all things boho and how excited we are that bright color palettes are making a comeback in wedding design. We had been dying to work together and decided putting together a boho-luxe editorial shoot would be the perfect opportunity to collaborate!
We partnered with Minted on this shoot and used their Gilded Shore invitation as the inspiration behind the color story – pairing shades of lavender with metallics and mustard.
The shoot took place at Gardener Ranch, which is tucked away in beautiful Carmel Valley. It had rained the day before our shoot, so the grounds were extra lush and a perfect setting.
The bride wore two gowns from Daughters of Simone paired with vintage inspired Jewelry from Trumpet and Horn. She looked lovely as can be walking through the venue grounds and styled in the vintage lounge.
Michelle Lywood outdid herself and adorned the ceremony tree with the most stunning flowers that looked like they were growing out of the bottom of the tree.
We set the table with La Tavola’s bayliss rain linen and velvet runners and kept the place settings modern with gold glass chargers, gray ceramic plates, and gold flatware. Adding the mustard yellow taper candles were a last minute decision and I’m so glad we did! It really made the yellow in the centerpiece pop and provided a lovely contrast against the lavender hues.
Using the minted wedding invitation texture as inspiration, Amanda from Just Bakecause crafted up such a unique cake! Can you say cake goals!?
I feel so lucky to be able to collaborate with such talented vendors who put in their time, product, and creative gifts to make this beautiful editorial shoot happen. From the location to all the boho luxe details, the day was a total dream and I hope inspires engaged couples planning their wedding this season!
