Patina and Petals || Intimate Winter Wedding Design

Today, I'm pulling out my props and finalizing some styling details for my shoot for the Photo Native photography workshop. So I thought this would be the perfect time to finally share the shoot I designed last year! I have been fortunate to design the film shoot every year so far, and I love the experience of creating a story for our student photographers to capture according to their own interpretation.

You can see our shoot from the first year of Photo Native here.

Influenced by the natural patina of antique silver, this indoor wedding design was curated using elements that manifest the organic beauty special objects develop over time . As metals age, they take on an iridescent quality with a variety of jewel-like tones. This palette was reflected in the deep pigments of the flowers. Tender spring blooms like hellebore, tinted ranunculus and sweet pea, and fragrant lilac were paired with sculptural branches and rugged juniper. Bathed in subdued window light, we kept the design elements surrounding our real couple few and significant, allowing their love and natural chemistry to shine through. The bride was draped in a billowing silk shift, adorned simply with a striking brown diamond ring. Together, they nestled comfortably into a natural nook, created with clusters of juniper and foraged bits. Heirloom elements, including classical wax seals on handmade paper, spools of softest silk, a homemade pavlova wedding cake and an antique wedding crown of tiny waxed flowers, further communicated the depth of their commitment.
