A big wedding trend that I am seeing right now is the burgundy and gold fall wedding, and I can honestly say I am not sad about it one bit! Last year burgundy really seemed to take the spotlight and I’m glad that it is still a popular color for my 2017 and 2018 brides planning their fall weddings. The invitation suite I designed for this shoot is one of my favorites to date. The wax seals, hand torn paper, and velvet ribbon are soft, romantic and elegant and fit perfectly with the overall feel of the event.
About this shoot, from the photographer:
The goal of the shoot was to create magic with the details and capture genuine, authentic moments of the couple.
With this shoot, we wanted to achieve a transitional look that would work from late summer into autumn. We incorporated a moody gray and burgundy color palette with pops of red, amber and yellow. Lush bouquets, fresh fruits and a vibrant color pallet are a stunning combination for any time of the year.
For the venue, we chose Stonewall Resort; the photo shoot took place overlooking a Stonewall Lake and highlighted by a field of goldenrod bathed in gorgeous evening light.
A flowing garland of seeded eucalyptus draping over a copper arbor, candle sticks, lush center pieces, gold-rimmed stemware, elegant menu cards and cross back chairs completed the head table.
The hand torn invitation suite combines traditional elements such as elegant typography with lush florals and gorgeous pops of color. The suite is tied together with rich brown velvet ribbon and adorned vintage postage wax seals.
Center pieces and a bouquet of seeded eucalyptus, golden rod, solidago, red roses, blackberry scabiosa, orange roses, mini carnations and alstroemeria perfectly complemented the shoot’s color palette.
The couple chose a two-tiered naked cake, with layers of rich devil’s food cake and buttercream frosting draped with a decadent chocolate ganache. The cake is adorned with seasonal stone fruit & berries, which reflect the warm gold and red tones of the florals.
The altar area was completed by gold rings adorned with florals and four cross back chairs.
