Soft Romance and Old World Wedding Ideas
When neutral is anything but plain... be still our classic-meets-romantic loving hearts! This absolutely stunning elopement inspiration, designed and photographed on film by Fine Art Curation member Samin Abarqoi hits everything on our elopement wish-list including romantic blooms by Sage Designs and a fairytale garden-like ceremony space that you would never believe was Canada! The incredibly enchanting and old world venue, Mackenzie King Estate, bodes well with the classic design feel and we adore the unique archway above the table in the reception space - so beautiful! If you're looking for a fresh feel to your Spring or Summer wedding, this is all the inspo you need...
From Samin Abarqoi: "This editorial evolved out of my desire to push my boundaries and past the ‘‘conventional’‘. Canada and especially British Columbia is known for its beautiful nature and as a photographer, I just needed to change my typical backdrop and use places & locations that I have access to in order to create an entirely new look and new ‘‘world’‘. By looking at these photos, you would never know that they were taken in Canada! And that’s exactly what I aimed to do with my photography. This styled shoot combines soft romance with an old-worldly feel that focuses on the love and vows that are exchanged under the gaze of arches and halls of Mackenzi ruins that bear the timelessness and eternal romance of a thousand love stories before them."
