Winter’s Sage Inspired Styled Shoot
Submitted by: Rebecca M Creative
What was your design inspiration?
Predicted wedding trends for 2019 show a focus on organic plants and in particular the herbal group including sage. Winter has a wide range of colors, but our focus was on the cool tones of grey to blue. This allowed the warmth of the custom couture gown to stand out. The clean and natural photography style of Madison d’Huart allowed each individual vendor to stand out and be seen as an essential part of the shoot.
Describe your flowers.
Marianne from Mille Fleur, designs unique and individual creations to match each setting. For our shoot, she brought bunches of raw sage to style the table and add to the details. The bouquet reflected the floral pattern on the custom gown which allowed the floral to become more 3D.
Tell us about your attire choices.
Founder and Producer of Utah Fashion Week, Janay Marie presented this gown on the runway with one modification, without the outer lining in yellow. Adding the lining for this shoot Janay shows brides that a hint of yellow on top of a floral gown could add color to the bride’s look without distracting from the elegant feel of the occasion, giving the bride a chance to be a little more daring, take a little more risk in her fashion choices on her special day.
Please describe any DIY, handmade, or personal items.
A real couple, Chris and Alexis are madly in love. Chris is part of the military and to pay tribute to that special role. One of the details of the invitation includes a small airplane, signifying the miles this couple has and will spend apart.
The custom headpiece from designer Sparrow Station added the perfect amount of touch to the bridal look. Tying in the floral elements and adding a contrast of gold against the model’s dark hair and the organic use of braids from Beauty by Brooklyn, while still pairing with the soft feminine look of makeup artist Christine Hoang.
Describe the tablescape elements.
Designer and Owner of Cultivated Events, Tressa, used a minimalistic approach to the table design, adding elements of sage and the pop of the dark blue to emphasize the organic layout and setting. The primary focal point of the table design is the centerpiece. The candelabra at first glance appears minimal until the viewer can see that it is atop a glass box that Tressa and florist Marianne had filled with lush greenery and pops of pure white. This stunning piece provides an eye-catching draw to the table and a sense of warmth to the scene.
