If you can’t put your finger on which season appeals to you most, this styled shoot incorporates all of them in one unique setting. With visions for spring/summer and fall/winter, you can see the creative interpretation behind the seasons with two styled shoots in one. The autumn/winter style was created with the idea of textures and mood with depth and color. The invitation suite evokes a bold hue with an elegant design.
The bride uses her embellished heels to make a statement in her long sleeve lace gown. Her bouquet is a modest collection of dark poppies that speak to the rich reds we see in later months of the year.
She also dons bold statement jewelry, like pewter-colored earrings and colorful baubles, and sports light smoky eyes and a dewy rose-colored lip.
To play off the creative aspect, the tablescape features a vivid purple table runner for a pop of color, along with purple hydrangea, miniature pumpkins, and gold jars and vases. Berries and plush dahlias round out the stylish assortment.
The cake echoes the color palette and the bride’s gown with a four-tier creation. While three of them feature a pearly lace design, the third tier is gold with a purple flower, pearl accent, and a band of dusty purple ribbon.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the spring/summer concept induces a feminine, delicate elegance along with a pastel-filled color palette, as seen in the bride’s petite bouquet.
The bride switches gears and dons two gowns, the first a pretty lace silhouette with a high neckline and short sleeves. Her hair is styled with soft curls and she wears light and airy makeup.
Tulle, roses, eucalyptus, and more are brought together for a dreamy design. A modest place setting includes a sprig of the fragrant greenery with a criss-cross of flatware atop white plates.
It’s the cake that steals the spring and summer show. Five fondant-covered tiers are adorned with soft-colored roses hand-painted right onto the fondant. The finished product is sumptuous.
The second spring/summer bridal look features a beaded lace V-neck gown with a large gray bow tied around the waist. The contrast between the delicate lace and the striking bow is unique.
Each season is special and exclusive with its own aura and excitement. This inventive session shows how to redefine the seasons to curate an original, one-of-a-kind experience that still rings true to what we love about them.
