Greetings sweet readers,
Today I have a bit of inspiration for you brought to us by Shillawna Ruffner Photography. Now they intended this to be an engagement editorial, and it is oh so lovely, but I can see how this could easily become a theme for a wedding too! I just love the ribbon that Natali Allen Production Design used on the chairs and the dress is gorgeous! I am really smitten with this color palette and the use of pocket watches. I love pocket watches, my Hubby uses one his Grandfather gave him. And can I just say that paisley may be the most underused, but fab look.
From the Photographer:
“This styled engagement shoot was inspired by the eclectic group of women who put it together. It’s a delightful mixture of boho chic elegance with a vintage flare. I love how the evening spring light and pastel hues bring an ethereal romantic feel to the images, as well as the visual appeal that the juxtaposition of the rustic backdrop and formal table setting and attire provide. We centered this session around the idea of clocks offering a symbol of what two people are promising when they say “I do”. We imagined a young man planning a romantic picnic in a secluded spot for his sweetheart where he would promise his love to her for the rest of time and ask for hers in return. I think any woman would say “yes” to such a beautiful gesture! We conceptualized the set decorations using authentic vintage fabrics for items like the draped bunting and table linens, and then added current and customized pieces to round out the collection of props and wardrobe. Some of my favorite pieces were the forged metal crane with the pocket watch dangling from it’s beak and the hand made chair tiebacks. I also loved the clothing choices our stylist made that truly blended seamlessly with the set, including the custom made bow tie worn by our male model! I can’t say enough great things about our gorgeous models! Although they aren’t actually engaged, they are a real couple and I was so impressed with their willingness to allow me to capture their genuine connection. It was a wonderful experience playing a fly on the wall with such beautiful and obviously in love people. Who knows….maybe this experience will push these two to the next step! (wink, wink)”
Thanks for sending us this sweetness Shilawna! I am off to get my mint picked and my hat ready for this afternoon…Its Derby Day!
