Inspired by vintage botanical prints, Tamara of Simply by Tamara Nicole conceptualized a unique shoot incorporating the 2013 Pantone color of the year: Emerald. Combining an abundance of both beachy + botanical elements, this editorial, which was beautifully captured by Courtney Bowlden Photography, is a great example of how to blend different styles to create a beautiful and cohesive event! I’m super in love with so many of the creative details integrated into this shoot. From the ceremony site the team created, filled with greenery, candles + sea shells to the gorgeous gowns + wardrobe styling (that green necklace!) there are just so many inspirational aspects for you to pin and consider incorporating into your big day!
Bash and Bloom created a beautiful tablescape filled with romantic blooms + a lush fern garland. Love the iron sphere chandelier hanging overhead, too!
The bar was staged against an old rod iron bed frame adorned with ivy + roses. Shake Bartenders served up botanical-themed cocktails like elderflower cordials and peach + rosemary spritzers!
I’m crazy about the hair + makeup by Yessie Makeup Artistry. This super-fun bun adorned with a garland of pearls + emerald stones would be such a pretty look for your wedding day! And the bold statement necklace is just so fab.
I love that the team envisioned a sweet canoe getaway + decorated the boat with a gorgeous cluster of flowers!
Thanks so much to the talented group of creatives below for sharing their work with us today!
