Burgundy and velvet wedding inspiration

Jul 23, 2014 | Inspiration

We're all about the tangible here at Wedding Sparrow HQ and that's only one of the reasons we love film photography so much. Sweet romantic love letters don't get much more tangible and this styled wedding full of velvet and burgundy details was inspired by Beethoven’s famous love letter, 'My Immortal Beloved'.

From Nikki Santerre Photography: "What could be more romantic than love letters itself? The words of powerful men revealing their vulnerability only for the women who have stolen their hearts. The concept itself is swoon-worthy, but then you add hand written elements, burgundy peonies, and capture it all on film and the combination will leave you absolutely enamored. There aren’t enough words to describe the gratitude in my heart for the vendors that helped make this shoot a reality. Amanda, of Into It Events, and I have been dreaming of the inspiration behind The Loving Type for months, and to see the end result curated so beautifully is an overwhelmingly incredible feeling."

“Be patient – only through quiet contemplation of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together – Be calm; for only by calmly considering our lives can we achieve our purpose of living together.- be calm – love me – today – yesterday – What yearning with tears for you – you – you my life – my everything – farewell – oh continue to love me – never misjudge the most faithful heart of your Beloved.”

- An excerpt from Ludwig van Beethoven’s famous love letter, 'My Immortal Beloved'.
