WARM MAUVE WEDDING IDEAS
UTAH WEDDING INSPIRATION
I just love the Salt Lake City, Utah wedding industry. I feel like the creativity is through the roof and it's teeming with talent. I'm so on board with the modern minimalist spin with still keeping things inspired by classic weddings. When I knew I would be traveling to Utah from Texas for a destination wedding workshop, I knew I wanted to work with someone who was on board with my ideas and had a similar aesthetic to my own. I also knew it's a bit tedious to plan a shoot from afar, so the less cooks in the kitchen, the better. This meant someone multi-talented who could style and provide florals was a must. Lexi Sandberg from Carpe Diem Design was the perfect lady for the job, and knocked this one out of the park!
This bridal session with Jacqueline took place in a studio space in Salt Lake and we knew we wanted to utilize new shooting techniques, have a modern approach to classic weddings, and use negative space wisely within our shots. I also made it a priority to experiment with motion and shoot a few double exposures. Our fabulous team wanted to portray a creative, spring inspired editorial without being stereotypically pastel. Our colour palette consisted of mauve & mustard with complementing neutrals.
The flowing deep v-neck gown from Adorned Rentals provided the motion aspect we wanted in the shoot. It moved so effortlessly, and was perfectly understated. I feel that a wedding gown like this one would be perfect for the minimalist bride who still wants a little bit of frill to her wedding dress. The stunning florals by Carpe Diem Design brought the spring element with their incorporation of blooming branches and a fresh yet muted colour palette. Along with the florals, Lexi also styled this shoot, from the table scape to the invitation suite & paper goods. Her approach was simple and mismatched, with different elements at each place setting. The paper goods from Nicolette Selman of Lazywood Lane using some handmade paper from Pressed Paper went along perfectly with the rest of the shoot, using the same fresh elements that were on the mismatched place settings.
This wedding inspiration bridal editorial went off without a hitch, and per usual, I absolutely cannot wait to get back out to Utah to photograph again!
