These rolling hills never stop inspiring me, from the muted tones in the winter to the various shades of green in spring and summer to the golden yellows of autumn, this place I call home is always a huge source of inspiration when it comes to creating. With COVID-19 derailing 2020 weddings, and several couples forced to look into alternative routes for their wedding day, I wanted to create something that showed some diversity and unique ways to approach their special day. Instead of a full on sweetheart table, I went for a laid back but still whimsical and elegant picnic with lace and soft blue blankets, and darker wood platters and baskets to warm things up. For florals, its organic and local and feels like it naturally belongs there but is elevated with the muted pops of color and feels elegant against the stark greens of the fields. We incorporated the florals in the hair to really connect the bride to the setting and the day. By added a greenery crown and some little flower buds in between the double-fishtail braid, it really made the bride look and feel like she was a part of the day and belonged there. The brides makeup is golden and stunning. Taking hints from our golden Palouse summer sunsets, she is glowing with this dewy golden look. And instead of cake, I went the route of the couples favorite pastries. Cake is always good, but there are so many sweet treats out there to be enjoyed and this was a great way to enjoy a varity of favorites. Overall, the feeling was whimsical and elegant but laid back and chill, which I believe is something every 2020 couple is hoping to find…a little bit of laid back and chill without it looking like a hot mess.
