Architectural Contemporary Wedding Inspiration
When I wrote Top 5 Tips to have an Exceptionally Beautiful Wedding I talked about being inspired by the land around you. What colors, textures and objects do you see? Incorporate at least one of those elements into your design as a motif. This editorial by Hawaii film photographers Dmitri and Sandra and stylist Shaunna Nygren is exactly what I mean about letting the landscape dictate to you a source of inspiration. Let the crumbling walls be the texture, the color/tone of the landscape be your palette and the architecture be your backdrop.
From Dmitri and Sandra: "This editorial shoot was created to celebrate the simple beauty of the impending summer season. We imagined a free spirit dancing among the earthly ruins of Old Maui High, an unexpected setting in Maui, Hawaii. Drawing upon the mysticism and magic of crystals and selenite we found inspiration in the foggy white texture of the stone. We layered our collection of selenite atop an ethereal table of muted blue silk and gossamer linens by Adorn. Floral Designer Mandy Grace Designs created petite arrangements of dried palm leaves, majolica spray roses, white kangaroo paw, larkspur and butterfly ranunculus. The whimsical bridal bouquet was composed of the same blooms. Tarnished silver and crystal glassware completed the tablescape."
