Happy Summer Solstice, you guys! We couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate this day than with an absolutely stunning editorial planned by Hourglass Productions and captured by Cassie Rosch, Photographer. We love that this shoot captures the youthful, free-spirit feeling of summer with rich, unexpected details and hues. It’s the perfect blend of “relaxed bohemian” and “festival glamping” and we have a feeling you’re about to find yourself inspired!
Cassie tells us, The decor was crucial in achieving this vision and we were lucky to work with Eclectic Hive, which (as their name suggests) has a diverse assortment of furniture and textiles. As the longest day of the year, the summer solstice has long been associated with the positive, radiating energy of joy and love. To help create this atmosphere we knew we had to build a space for people to celebrate and engage with one another. The real show-stopper is undoubtedly the inviting tipi lounge with layers of varying textures and lush florals cascading down from above, designed by the uber creative Lale Florals.
This sweet vignette = bridesmaid GOALS! A perfect setting to relax with a glass of wine before heading down the aisle!
A lace Claire La Faye dress, paired with rugged camel-hued boots, was the perfect look for the laid-back setting.
Whimsy Design Studio hand-crafted a one-of-a-kind, delicate feather curtain that functions beautifully as a ceremony backdrop. We ♥ it!
A low table-top surrounded by more hides, boho rugs, and an eclectic mix of pillows add to the youthful, free-spirited vibe. The table design is edgy but charming; filled with rich black juxtaposed with more vibrant floral pieces and accented by antlers, small bits of leather, and gold dipped, black feathers.
A pretty, pretty cake – by Astonishing Cakes – wraps things up with style. So much thanks to the talented team below for sharing! And Happy Summer Solstice!
