Gold. There’s something about it that emotes a sense of history and timelessness. It has made a comeback recently, so I love this styled shoot which shares ideas on how you could incorporate this trend into your day!
Inspired by the Bohemian’s version of “bling”, Jessica (of lovebird style) and Brooke (of Brooke Boling Photography) wanted to explore ways to gently incorporate gold into a wedding palette, while keeping it simple and fresh. I love the look they landed on – gold in the forefront while still being fun + light-hearted. Playing off the inspiration of two traveling gypsies, they added some interesting focal points like a gold bike, staircase, musical instruments and a table set with simple DIY flower arrangements. And the gold sparkly wedding dress by Rachel Gilbert…amaze-ness!
They made a lot of things for the shoot that would be easy to replicate for your own day such as the hand painted “love” canvas (seen at the end of the shoot) and wine bottles that they spray painted gold used as vases. They also painted a bucket for the favor donations as well as some reclaimed barn wood that they used to create a gold-dusted table. To keep things local, they served golden cream brûlée from a neighborhood restaurant, found props at a nearby vintage store and set everything in a great local venue.
Thanks so much to all these creative artists for sharing their talents with us today! Anyone planning on incorporating gold into their wedding day?
