A vintage garden-romantic wedding

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

This past weekend was the gorgeous wedding of Amanda, who I have really enjoyed working with over the last few months, along with her mom. Amanda is an art teacher who has a truly remarkable understanding of color and texture, obviously! She really felt like flowers were important, and it was so awesome to bring her color scheme to life!

The groom's gardenia bout, above! Stunning and fragrant. The bride wore gardenias in her hair and carried them in her bouquet as well. It doesn't get any more vintage or romantic than that! Below is the bout that all the other men wore... mums and yellow oncidium orchids to pop against their chocolate tuxes. Really interesting and unique.

The bridesmaids carried gorgeous bouquets of purple lisianthus, eggplant scabiosa, butter yellow stock, green bupleurum and hydrangea, eggplant and orange calla lilies, roses... the list goes on. This was such a gorgeous and unexpected color combination, paired with the mossy green gowns that the girls wore.

This is always such a fun moment for me... I love to see the reaction of the bride when I bring her bouquet. When there are tears, joyful smiles, and hugs, I know I've captured her vision and all is right in the world! Amanda did not disappoint!

And below, the gorgeous bouquet and the gorgeous bride. I think we really captured this golden, romantic vintage feel that she was going for. Orange unique roses, golden spray roses, gold calla lilies, gardenias, hydrangea, and festive bush for a garden feel. We even wrapped the handle of the bouquet in the gold raw silk dupioni that her sash was made from. It was a stunning look, as you can see below!

I think these photos are stunning examples of her work, and if you would like to see more, check out her work at www.cornerstonephotography.com or at www.myspace.com/cornerstonephotographykc
