I am so excite to finally be able to share this styled shoot at the Secret Garden. It has been featured on the Kate Aspen, For All You Celebrate blog pointing out 10 of the Most Beautiful Delicate Garden Wedding Ideas. View the feature HERE. This shoot was absolutely amazing, I am so thankful to all the wonderful vendors that participated in creating this setting! I mean they went above and beyond to make it happen!!! And honestly, I have a completely new respect for all the wedding planners after arranging so much of this with Emily from Your Heart’s Desire. It was seriously way harder than I thought it would be!
From Emily: In designing this shoot, we really wanted to focus on the juxtaposition of the venue’s casual outdoor setting and the elegance of fine dining. We started with a soft green textured linen set atop a long table, and added Tuscan cafe chairs with a rustic whitewash finish. We hand-selected an eclectic mix of creamy white containers and had them filled with an array of romantic floral in shades of blush and coral along with a variety of foliage including dusty miller, queen anne’s lace, and seeded eucalyptus to enhance the whimsical garden ambiance. We then selected a lovely dinnerware set with scalloped edges and added stunning menus boasting beautiful watercolor flowers, both of which enhanced the softness of the overall design. Finally, we selected gold-rimmed glassware and ornate gold flatware, which was the perfect finishing touch of elegance. All of the additional details, including an ombre ruffled cake, hand-painted macaroons, and a blush signature cocktail accented with a spring of rosemary, came together perfectly in a cohesive look that really brought the natural beauty of the venue to life.
