On this day before Valentine’s Day, we thought this bold color and chic Mediterranean bohemian garden wedding style would be the perfect way to celebrate the special day. Photographed by Dawn Derbyshire Photography, this is the ideal shoot for V-Day indeed!
From the photographer:
When I heard about the Stylish Workshops, I jumped at the chance to attend the workshop in Pittsburgh. Created by two brilliant women in the Pittsburgh wedding scene, Melissa of Devoted to You Events and Jenni of Jenni Grace Photography put together a stunning, intimate, colorful styled shoot in the garden of Melissa’s studio. It was inspiring to see the beautifully executed vision of a group of talented vendors and to learn and work alongside such a stellar team.
As a photographer I am drawn to bold color, so the color palette and overall look of the shoot spoke to me. The warm summer day helped perfect the vibe of the shoot, as the scent of jasmine floated through the air and the couple, who are getting married in 2017, snuggled up at their intimate sweetheart table tucked away in the garden. Lauren’s gorgeous, intricate lace dress from Glitter and Grit had just the right amount of detail and sparkle to go with the texture of the floral pieces from Green Sinner.
The vintage pieces from Vintage Alley Rentals, like the sublime rugs, exquisite hanging lanterns at the ceremony space, low table and mixed metallic elements at the reception table flowed wonderfully with the bold colors of the place settings, accented with golden elephant place card holders and bold, colorful paper goods from Fresh Cut Prints. As the sun set at the end of the shoot, the glow from the lanterns surrounding the dessert table created a whimsical, romantic feel. The way the mix of textures, patterns, bold color and glimmer of the lanterns as the sun set created the perfect atmosphere for the shoot, it felt like we were transported to a garden paradise instead of shooting in a tiny garden between two buildings on the outskirts of Pittsburgh.
Thanks for stopping by!
