Robert Frost once wrote that “Nothing gold can stay.” He may have been right, but Michelle Leo Events and her amazing creative crew sure timed it right for this gorgeous gold and purple fall inspired wedding shoot. With textures and jewel tones galore, and the aspen grove glowing gold in the background, this inspirational shoot is truly enchanting.

I knew we were going to be shooting outside in the mountains surrounded by thousands of gold trees. I wanted to bring in some sort of element that would allow me to utilize the natural gold color palette of the aspen trees so I decided to work with reflective surfaces for my table tops. I selected a mirrored dining table and paired it with a matching sofa table from ZGallerie.
In addition, I selected a secondary color pallet inspired by a simple fig to offset the richness of the gold hues. The textures of this shoot are rich with nature-inspired elements that complimented the intricate patterns and textures of the place mats and flatware at each place setting of this regal dining table.
The paper suite stole my heart! Moira Design Studio produced a custom-made water-color per my request and I just can’t get over the beautiful gold calligraphy of the menus, name tags, and more. I wanted simple yet elegant and I am thrilled with how these delicate paper pieces tied in the overall theme of this shoot. Beautifully done, Moira Design Studio!
I couldn’t decide on just one cake for this shoot so my cake designer, Cake-A-Licious indulged me with three, individual cakes. Each a work of art. From the simplicity of the naked cake adorned with figs, to the sugar spun cake and an amazing metallic gold and white cake, who wouldn’t want to dive in and have a feast of yummy, sugary goodness?!
There’s a wide variety of texture throughout the fashion elements of this shoot also. The rich pattern on the brides dress works nicely with the soft and flowing chiffon of the maids. Each bouquet is bursting with various textures of blooms and berries that add to the richness of the season and compliments what the girls are wearing.
