Bakersfield Country Club California Wedding Shoot. Many brides agonize over their wedding colors but the truth is, with the right venues, fashion and flowers, you needn't worry. This styled shoot at the Bakersfield Country Club in California proves that stripping down the color can create a minimally disturbed, yet perfect vision of romance. This garden shoot started with a glamorous one-shoulder gown with a lace bodice, drop waist and tulle skirt. Dark green vintage heels with a beaded waistband are additional vivacious touches.
The Bakersfield Country Club is stunning and the tiled fountain and verdant plant life let the setting stand all on its own.
The flowers in this shoot are all white, including white roses, brunia berries, dusty miller and stephanotis. Ample greenery is included to tie in the look of the location.
With minimal color, the details of the gown becomes all that more important. A second bridal look that is appropriate for this environment is a cap-sleeve fit-and-flare gown with lace and a sweetheart neckline.
Additional options that prove striking in this garden setting include beaded necklines, statement backs, beaded sleeves, illusion necklines, and sparkling accessories.
The bridal party is a vision in white. Flower girls wear tulle dresses with crisscrossed backs. They sit on a white lounge with the bride, who dons a long lace veil. The groom, dressed in gray, joins in and coordinates wonderfully with the group.
The table to fete the couple is dressed with a white linen and is accompanied by dark chivari chairs. Even from far away, one can see the lush centerpieces lining the center of the table.
Each place setting includes a sprig of greenery on a classic white plate with a homemade canoli favor for each guest. Sweet treats are also a part of the decor, with canolis displayed in glass and small iced cookies with green sugar flowers serving as an extraordinarily delightful offering to guests.
The wedding cake looks dreamy and flawless. Three tiers are covered with white fondant. The top and bottom have a clean, seamless appearance while the middle layer is covered with small white sugar flowers. The cake table is adorned with additional greenery.
The head table is styled with a simple white table linen and a dramatic flower arrangement.
Two dark chairs are personalized with moss covered Mr and Mrs signs to tie in the natural characteristics of the shoot.
The gentlemen in this shoot dress in gray pants, vests, and ties. Rather than standard boutonnieres, they wear tiny collections of green leaves and sprigs to match the greenery in the bride's bouquet.
We often forget how beautiful nature can be. White is a traditional wedding color and it never goes out of style. Pairing it with naturally occurring green creates a timeless combination. Concentrating on a simple, deconstructed color palette allows for more focus on the details of the day and the emotion between the couple “ something that adds color all on its own.
