“Our inspiration for this shoot stemmed from a warm summer’s night in the Tuscan countryside. We were drawn to the rich tones of ochre and burnt orange, a welcome contrast to the popular blush tones of 2018.
After our original ‘Tuscan Garden’ venue fell through, we were thrilled when the stunning Fort Common space was offered to us to help bring this design to life for Myrtle & Moss Photography’s Inspired workshop retreat. The brick walls and pops of white around the space helped to add the modern element we were seeking, contrasting nicely with the more romantic elements such as the delicate lace gown, rich, moody makeup, custom-made jewelry, and deckle-edged stationery.
The tablescape was designed with a still-art painting in mind, complete with fruit and a custom hand-dyed cheesecloth runner. Florals were lush and abundant, attached to as many surfaces as possible. Certain elements were kept clean and simple to offset the richness of colour, such as the copper arch, touches of marble, and the groom’s attire. A multitude of sweet desserts rounded out the shoot, displayed on a mix of vintage glass dishes.
The contrasting modern and romantic elements, as well as the play on different textures and layers, created something far better than we originally envisioned. We are so thankful for all the vendors who really brought their A-game to this shoot.”
