Old World Romance Inspired
by the Literature of the Greatest Poets
When designing this editorial it was imperative that we incorporate their words through our design process. We designed with a warm color palette that we drew from the first edition of their books, rich browns, neutral tones, with warm honey and gold.
Pink Peony Press create a classically romantic wedding suite in the softest hues with a dramatic black envelope.
The stunning model posing as the bride wore a Catherine Langlois gown, accessories by The Loved One jewelry by Alexis Gallery, and was styled by on-site makeup & hair team Lavish Flair.
We also wanted to incorporate a lot of natural and raw elements to the shoot, such as pears and blueberries as well as mini pies for each guest.
Bar Chef provided the incredibly photogenic spread and Vanilla Bean Cakery created an extra tall two tiered blush pink wedding cake with a fondant sash and floral accents.
We wanted to create an intimate dinner experience for the guests, housing this editorial in a dreamy and luxurious venue with rentals by Simply Beautiful Decor - with cobblestone, vintage wash mirrors and luxurious chandeliers to create a warm, romantic and ethereal atmosphere.
“Why, darling, I don't live at all when I'm not with you.”

This whirlwind of the past few months has been trying and emotional for us all. It is taught us to love ourselves and one another and overall that life is precious.
If you want an intimate dinner in your backyard, do it! If you want to elope with just you and your love, do it! If this year has taught us anything it is that love is to be celebrated no matter the size of your guest list and that anything is possible.
