Summer nights was the real inspiration behind this shoot. To me, summer nights are romantic. There is just something in the air, something hopeful, peaceful and happy. I felt this way when I was in eighth grade hoping for my first kiss on a summer night in the neighborhood, at a college football game, and at my own wedding reception under the stars. I started thinking how romantic it would be to get married with that feeling in the air. So this shoot was inspired by a reverse engineered wedding timeline with the reception first and the ceremony last. As a minimony, it would be very easy to accomplish. The minimony elements influenced the other decisions, a small cutting cake, a queen’s table, and speciality lighting even included on the invitations. I was thrilled to share this styled shoot with an actual couple, Elisa and Nicole, who are planning on getting married in the fall. Their love for each other is easily apparent. The photos flowed easily as they are absolutely smitten with each other, no need for prompts to look lovingly into each other’s eyes, as these brides are what true love is all about! What else could you ask for! The decor was inspired by whimsey. Purple came to my mind for the traditional color of royalty for our queen’s table and this built the color pallet. In honoring spring, we made it a soft purple to remind us that all the flowers are beginning to bloom. Giving us pops of orange and yellow, the flowers caught your eyes as the flowers and the couple’s love were blooming in this event! We also incorporated figs into the table scape providing texture. Candlesticks and unique tableware made our brides feel like queens! It is 2021 after all, we had to bring the queens into the current century by adding a food truck that served specialty teas and treats.
