The Inspiration

The inspiration for this shoot came about a little differently than most do. This shoot was actually born out of a surplus of extra florals and materials left over after a wedding that previous weekend that called for repurposing and refresh. The wedding was rained out and the true vision for these fluffy grasses was to be outside on a large arch blowing in the wind. 

Like most creatives when you have a vision in mind it needs to be born. So, when the incredible floral designer Zoë of Signature Florals asked if I wanted to create a design that would give these materials the glory they deserved, I jumped at the chance. I must confess I LOVE tight deadlines so four days was just enough to make it happen while the florals were fresh

The Ceremony

The design really was inspired by the materials and how they would react to the venue that we were able to secure, South Seas Island Resort in Captiva. At the tip of an island, it gets rather windy and I wanted the pampas grasses to be able to freely blow as they would in nature so we buried them and added similar shaped long lean florals to add color to the circular design. 

The circular ceremony backdrop was created with Pampas Grass, Baby Blue Eucalyptus and pink Larkspur in the sand to keep it natural and organic. The two satellite pieces were created with the same adding Roses and King Protea.

The Table

The table was sourced days before at a second-hand store as was the glassware and then it was a matter of just piling on textiles and textures. After all, nothing says boho like textiles! We had no time to special order hand dyed fabrics so this was the perfect opportunity to try my hand at a little DIY by dipping the cheesecloth in coffee and wine to get that perfect muddy pink tone. 

I wanted to keep everything very light and airy so incorporating the vellum into the stationary gave the feeling on fluidity. Lorena of Script Me Pretty put together place cards and the invite in just a couple days, again, using leftover materials she had on hand. By adding in kiwi and sea salt I was able to give the table a little life by adding a little less refined feeling to an obviously curated space.

The Cake

The basic white cake which was originally created for a past shoot out of foam by my dear friend Karen of Kakes by Karen found its place in the spotlight again by just adding a tassel and top embellishment using bits of the materials from the ceremony space. 

The Style

Stacy of Set Free Photography found our beautiful model days prior and the insanely talented Katherine Kemper made her that swept away glowing bride we hoped to find. Stacy captured the scene beautifully, proving that anyone can have a gorgeous thoughtful elopement with little money, time, or effort if they work with inspired professionals that love what they do.
