Inspiration

Smaller, intimate weddings are fast becoming the norm given the current global climate. The "Love Is Still in Bloom" styled shoot showcases a detailed and intimate wedding experience, specially catered for the couple who is not delaying their walk down the aisle.  It highlights that love will always blossom no matter the circumstances and private wedding events can be just as glamorous and joyful as larger affairs. The abundance of  candles alongside soft peach, coral, blue, and white florals give an elegant, romantic feel to this shoot that doubled as a vow renewal ceremony for this real-life married couple. The ceremony included a foot washing ritual that highlighted the significance of the selflessness, love, and humility needed in marriage.

Linens:

The styled shoot did not feature any linen. Contemporary gold and glass tables were used throughout the shoot for consistency and to create an airier design aesthetic.

Centerpiece Description:  

The reception table design, produced by Event Design by BE, featured two bold crescent-shaped centerpieces on top of crystal chandeliers. The arrangements were dripping with a variety of florals with different textures and hues and minimal greenery. Florals used included light blue hydrangea, creamy white orchids, kahala, tiffany and exotica roses, tinted gold plumosa and ilse, sweet sara and charming babe spray roses.

In the center of the table sat another crystal chandelier adorned with peach cascading roses and pale blue tapered candles.

The place setting included tear drop shaped dinner, salad and bread plates with modern gold flatware. Pops of Pantone's color of the year, "Classic Blue", can be seen in both the sleek water goblets and textured lowball rock glasses.
