This ballet inspired shoot aimed to capture the essence of dance in the wings and preparation for the stage. Rosin, a golden yellow rock-power mix, is used backstage by dancers to help control their pointe shoes and therefore their movements on stage. Watercolor tends to have the ability to reflect a lot of the movement seen in dance, so watercolor elements were used on a simple white cake and white backdrop and mixed with other elements such as rosin and wooden floors.
These talented vendors hoped to convey the beauty of the movement of dance but also the raw moments and strength that often aren't seen behind the scenes. See all of the beautiful details from this dance and movement inspired wedding shoot in the full gallery, photographed by Love Be Photography.
I have been a dancer since the age of 2, and there is something about the movement and grace of dance that is so airy and romantic. If there is one thing I learned from 20 years of ballet, it is that beauty often develops from hard work.
It was so great to have an incredible team of vendors to help bring this vision to life. The flowers mimicked the movement of dancers while the china reflected the delicacy often seen in dancers. Styling by I Do I Do Wedding Planning helped bring each of these elements together.
