From Liza: This styled bridal shoot was inspired by the essence of spring – fun, flirty, and romantic. These three descriptors drove the styling – from the length of the dress to the daytime setup and wild bouquet.
With any event design I like to stay conscious of the season. I also love including inconspicuous accents of the underlying idea/theme. The big obvious choice for any early spring design is incorporating blooming branches. This is the only time of the year this happens in such abundance that I couldn’t resist. wanted to not only incorporate but to highlight these beautiful branches.
When styling your wedding, engagement shoot, or special event think of what you want the atmosphere to be and then of the people/place/colors/items that remind you or can recreate that atmosphere for you. For me, romance screams Paris… especially in the spring. Therefore, I included a set of antique books on the Louvre (to serve as decor and a centerpiece riser) and french breakfast pastries, to furthermore allude to the romantic feel.
While traditional wedding design focuses on flower variety, sometimes it is just as beautiful to spotlight a solo ingredient. I chose to create a flower crown, bouquet and arrangement all including blooming branches. The simplicity of one ingredient almost organizes the chaos of the wild natural blooms.
I decided to stay natural with both hair and make-up to generate a feeling of fun and easy spirited, again what spring is all about. We added a touch of sophisticated elegance through the custom pearl necklace with antique crystal flowers. Every bride needs a statement piece.
