Photography Workshop in Bethlehem PA
The Inspire Workshop’s styled shoot did more than inspire; it ignited artistry, creativity, and courage. Photographers got a chance to jump in and get their hands on the styling of this shoot. And thanks to the collaboration of many, we’re shown that wedding imagination truly has no bounds. Set in the photography studio at Fox and Finch in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, this styled shoot centers on gorgeous flowing florals, an aesthetically amazing space, delightful berries, and deliciously beautiful desserts.
From the start, the invitation suite is whimsical and dreamy thanks to the combination of white and navy blue colors. Gold scripting gives it just the right hint of shine and is a prelude to the metallic décor to come.
The bouquet incorporates a lot of dusty blue, purple, and green tones. The creation is tied with mismatched light blue ribbons and is displayed so beautifully on an ornate chair.
The contributors of this shoot bring the outside in with the inclusion of lots of added greenery. They create an organic feeling with tall potted plants placed on the floor and a leafy branch hung on the wall.
The bride's beautiful red hair is styled down and pinned up only on one side. She wears a strapless gown with an ornate beaded bodice and clutches the alluring bouquet in front of her.
Two bridesmaids are styled in long dresses in complementary pastels and hold smaller, but similar bouquets.
For a modern and artistic interpretation, some of the décor included geometric shapes and lots of metallic gold. The beautiful glass card box sits alongside navy blue tapers and a small gold ring box, and all are atop a vintage gold table.
With the eye-popping metallics of the rest of the shoot, the designers keep the tablescape as natural as possible. A long, natural wooden table is adorned with heaping flower centerpieces that make for quite the conversation piece. The tablescape beckons for guests to grab their seats and chat.
Each place setting includes a small macaroon, mismatched plates in dark and light hues, unique flatware and a napkin tied with a paper flower.
A contemporary spin on the classic menu card is this clear menu written with gold scripting.
Small trays of desserts and berries are also placed about the table for an easy-to-grab and gorgeous sweet treat.
The dessert table isn't a table at all, but actually a sofa! Set up on a small wooden platform, the wine-colored sofa holds small treats in gold boxes, small cakes atop gold vases, and of course, a magnificent wedding cake.
The cake is a bold creation with its dark blue focus. Blue and white buttercreams are mixed together to cover the tiers, while the tops both drip with blue icing Each tier is garnished with tiny macaroons, blackberries, and blueberries.
For even more delicious decadence, a tray of marbled candies is an attractive treat.
Candlelight from a collection of tall tapers and light floral blooms scattered about the design balance out the dark colors and bring the space to life.
The bride and her bridesmaids accessorize with floral crowns and the bride dons a dark wine-colored lipstick to tie in the ambiance of the shoot.
The photographers at The Inspire Workshop harnessed their own unique visions to create a breathtaking and bold styled shoot. With the same starting point, they all put a singular spin on the style, making for a multi-faceted look that sets it apart. Get inspired and get the creative juices flowing – although blackberry and blueberry are both quite amazing as we can see.
