This shoot has a balanced mix of bold and soft. Whimsy and romance. Sweet and spicy. There are bunches and bunches of DIY elements in this shoot and we love them all! Chili peppers have never before looked so good and oh so pretty. This inspiration is perfect for all the playful and unique brides, who have a passion for peppers and the color red.
From Stephanie Rose Photography:
My inspiration for this “Spicy” shoot was my significant other, who pickles a lot of peppers since we have our own backyard garden. It was my personal challenge to make chili peppers look beautiful and romantic and as the design element and focus. With the help of these talented vendors…I was able to make my sweet dream into a spicy reality!
This look is exactly what a bride needs who craves a vintage bell sleeve, the classic look of lace and the confidence of wearing a short dress, which allows her to show off her shoes, and wants something more than only flowers in her bouquet. This unique bouquet contains both flowers AND peppers! The unique bouquet had a unique smell of sweet flowers with a hint of spicy.
The heart backdrop, made from napkins and chicken wire, was Stephanie Rose’s take on this DIY. The gold candles on the cake table were found at an antique store for just a few cents. The red bottles were found at Hobby Lobby. Another backdrop I made was from fishing wire and a huge bag of dried peppers. The guest favors are DIY homemade pickled peppers, from the garden, so this idea is perfect for the couple who loves to garden and share with family and friends their homegrown veggies.
