The beginning of summer is such a gorgeous time! Traditionally, June is the most popular month for weddings, and it just so happens to be the inspiration for this dreamy styled shoot. This summer solstice editorial, featured on Green Wedding Shoes, was conceptualized from the “heavenly bodies of the sun, moon and stars” in a purely organic yet luxurious fashion.
Styled by GATHER Events, it’s safe to say we’re completely over the moon about this shoot. A combination of lavish textures, gradient colors and moody elements, the styled shoot took on a warm and ethereal quality, reminiscent of midsummer nights.
We’re in love with this altar, featuring a hoop decorated with flowers by Gather Design Company. It’s such a creative way to dress up an interior space! The qualities of the moon and its phases are channeled through the bone, grey and mauve colored textiles and flowers, circular shapes and moonstone-like opaque lanterns. The warmth of the sun is represented in the warm tangerine and peach colors, gold metallics, sun ray imagery and geometric shapes.
The use of rich and varied textures was essential to the look and feel of this shoot, and designers brought in materials like velvet, linen and silk. That ivory silk runner and the flowing ribbons on the bouquet are all hand dyed and crafted by Tono and Co!
Warm and moody tones carried over to the tablescape with pops of orange, dusty rose and black and gold accents. We’re especially fond of how our taper candles pair with the lush flower arrangements by Gather Design Company!
Now that’s a golden cake! Geometric shapes, sun rays and taper candles in vintage brass candlesticks come together for a truly unique style.
