Hello French Wedding Style readers and welcome to another wonderful week! We are kicking this month off with a swoonworthy fine art French inspired wedding shoot, you’ll need your pinterest boards at the ready for all this pretty!
We love everything about this sun drenched photo shoot from the colour coordinating stationery suite created by Simply Rooted Calligraphy to the sweet zebra who makes an appearance in a few of the pictures (yes you heard us correctly, a Zebra!!).
Our gorgeous bride wore a lace sleeved BHLDN gown which perfectly complimented the sophisticated feel seen throughout this French inspired shoot. For the tablescape, wedding planner Always Flawless Productions chose floral urns for center pieces with a beautiful candelabra to create a touch of height making it feel unique in design.
We’ll now pass you over to Always Flawless Productions who will be walking us through this French inspired wedding shoot…
“There is nothing more luxurious than European architecture, and Milagro Farms Vineyard and Winery was therefore the perfect backdrop for our stunning French styled shoot. It combined stunning architecture with a winery, which helped us create a luxurious wedding in a very natural setting.”
“When it came to dessert, we once again, wanted something natural and luxurious. The dark black cake with gold flakes and white and maroon floral was extremely elegant and in order to pull in the natural feel, we set it on a natural wine barrel with elegant draping.”
“In designing the tablescape, we started with an ornate wooden French table, luxurious upholstered chairs, and a long ivory table runner for a dramatic feel. Because the goal was to create a very elegant and grandiose feel, we felt adding ample floral and candle light was key. In order to do this, we created an asymmetrical look with one large floral arrangement and four smaller arrangements. We kept the color palate light, with pops of maroon for interest. We also added a mixture of white pillar candles, floating candles, and black candle sticks.”
“We also wanted to be sure our couple emulated the design of the shoot. Our bride wore a stunning French lace gown and we dressed the groom in a classic black suite. Their attire was clearly very elegant, but we kept their hair and make-up slightly more natural to match the overall aesthetic”
“When it came to the place settings, we wanted to keep them simple, yet luxurious. For this, we layered French ivory plates and added a pop of color with a maroon napkin. The custom menus pulled in the French theme, and the greenery wrapped around the menu help tie in the luxurious feel to the natural setting.”“The grandiose table set the scene for the remainder of the shoot. The stunning maroon invitation was custom designed to match the floral on the table, and also incorporated French wording to really portray the French theme.”
