Spring is a period of rebirth and awakening, a time where everything that was once barren turns to buds and brand new life – it was the perfect inspiration behind today’s stunning editorial. For the color palette, Lisa Silva Photography and Champagne Pop Events were particularly influenced by Claude Monet’s Sunset on the Seine – the mix of warm and cool pastel tones played out so beautifully in Moonstruck Florals’ arrangements. After scrolling through and pinning every picture, don’t forget to head on over to the full gallery to see every last detail of this mesmerizing Spring day!
From Lisa Silva Photography… Spring has always been my favorite season. After a dreary and gray stretch of winter, everything begins to come alive again in the spring. Fresh growth appears transforming the barren winter landscape into something lush and new. Caterpillars turn into butterflies, flowers burst into bloom and bring color back into our lives. This magical season of new life was the inspiration behind our shoot. We wanted to create something that captured the essence of spring and inspired brides and grooms to incorporate the gifts of the season into their own weddings.
When choosing our color palette we were inspired by Impressionism, specifically the iconic Sunset on the Seine by Claude Monet. Impressionism is my personal favorite movement in art history and much like spring, was a period of rebirth and awakening. We created three separate bridal looks with gowns from Claire Pettibone’s new spring line, Evolution. Caroline of Moonstruck Florals designed the lush all-floral bouquets with blooms in the pretty pastel hues and combinations of warm and cool tones used in Monet’s painting.
Our makeup and hair artists gave our models a fresh and romantic look with soft makeup and loose braids and curls. SoDough Baking Co. Created a beautiful dessert spread adorned with fruit and florals. For our venue, we chose Goodwood Museum and Gardens in Tallahassee for its lush grounds and gardens. Goodwood is an amazing venue with many options for ceremonies and receptions, but to keep our look organic we focused on shooting in the gardens. The main table and dessert table were placed between flowering camellia trees and a sitting area also adorned in florals was placed under a sprawling live oak. The locations were important to the overall design of the enchanted garden look and we loved the whimsical mood of it all. I am in love with the painterly feeling of this shoot and all of the beautiful elements of spring that we incorporated. We hope that it inspires couples to embrace the natural romance of the season when planning for their own weddings. Especially in today’s world, the promise of new life and reawakening should be something that guides us all.
