Styled Shoot with Michelle Edmonds and Lainee Read

 by Lainee Read

This was such a fun couple and with this shoot we really wanted to capture their personalities in the almost fairy tale story line that they are walking in the woods, find this perfect table waiting for them, hanging from the perfect tree and begin to live in the moment. Moments full of romance, beauty, laughter and love.

With this shoot we wanted to capture and inspire an almost masculine table. Something to contradict the almost girly, pretty inspiration shoots you see all over the place. 

We wanted to create a table that reminded brides the season between fall and winter. That border season, where the air has a bite to it but snow is yet to fall. The time where natural colors like browns and white are prominent but the bright colors of autumn refuse to give way just yet.

Although this table is simple and masculine, the details are in the textures. We wanted to capture both winter and fall with frayed white linen, dark cork place mats, weaved silver chargers and smooth white plates with textured gradient cakes, one for the bride and the groom. The glasses found along the table had a frosted sugar look, reminiscent of early morning frost before snowfall. And the metal gradient balls and fallen leaves add to the table’s texture and contribute to the masculine feel without making this a “man’s” table. The perfect balance between masculine and feminine is found in the orchids on the branches and the textured bouquet the bride carries as well as the flower details on her gorgeous dress.
