Ethereal Romantic Loft Wedding Ideas
This editorial from Lisa Catherine Photography speaks to my heart. The light, the neutral tones, the edginess married with the soft romanticism. And as if it couldn't get any better - the song ‘To Build a Home’ by Cinematic Orchestra was used to inspire this editorial and it happens to be one of my fave songs of all time. If you haven't listened to it yet, please do (then thank me later)...
From Lisa Catherine Photography: "Set to it’s own haunting playlist which echoed throughout the room, the lyrics of the main track chosen for this shoot scrawled across a love letter, this styled editorial takes place in a room that mirrored the direction behind the shoot, well loved. Every once in a while, a love comes along that is both rare and intensely raw reminding us that sometimes love is messy, but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful.. This narrative editorial begins with our bride and a love letter. Written on the love letter are the lyrics from ‘To Build a Home’ by Cinematic Orchestra featuring Patrick Watson. Inspiration for this shoot was drawn from the following lyrics: “There is a house built out of stone Wooden floors, walls and window sills Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust This is a place where I don’t feel alone This is a place where I feel at home ‘Cause, I built a home For you For me.”
"I wanted the space to feel lived in, used, and loved and so chose a setting with brittle plaster walls and worn wooden floors. The lived-in tablescape, florals, plaster inspired cake, and stationary are all lived in and well loved, as is the love story of our couple. My vision was to highlight our model’s natural beauty by keeping hair and makeup minimal and by featuring her stunning clear blue eyes, full lips, and beautiful skin, for there is no better love than to be loved in our most true and vulnerable form. The raw edge details and juxtapositions of this shoot were balanced by the most ethereal Alexandra Grecco tulle gown and cathedral length veil by Canadian designer Noon on the Moon. As a photographer, I had been longing to submerge myself in a shoot that felt whole-heartedly like me. And so, I started with a vision, then sketches, began drawing inspiration from music and creating vignettes in my head. I hand selected an incredible team who I felt could realize this vision and trusted to bring it to fruition. I breathed as much authentic life, movement, and infused as many sensory experiences into this editorial as I could."
