Mists of Avalon Wedding Inspiration

mists of avalon wedding inspiration

Set amongst the lush, natural landscape of Bridal Veil Lakes near the Oregon Columbia River, today’s styled shoot was inspired by the romanticism of Arthurian legend. This is truly one of the most magical shoots I’ve seen lately + I know you’re going to love all the ethereal details by Something Borrowed, the dreamy photography by Hazelwood Photo + the stunning gowns by Holly Stalder + Kate Towers!

From the team, We blended muted medieval elements with a romantic zeal for the natural world to create an enchanting playground for the modern bohemian bride. Lavender sprigs garnished the signature cocktails, gemstones served as guests favors atop our escort cards, while blackberries and artichokes figured into the floral arrangements. Table settings not only included amethysts, but also crystallized violets resting in delicate Pacific oyster shells. Continuing our theme, the dessert table featured purple rock candy wands, a gorgeous three-tiered ombre cake, and candy crystal covered cupcakes. Our “maids of the forest” embodied our motif via hair, wardrobe and jewelry choices (just look at that abalone crown!).
