We’re all for the airiness of a romantic, lighthearted affair, but as soon as this gorgeous shoot by Flora + Fauna + Liz Stewart Floral Design graced our inbox, we were immediately smitten with their unique + moody design perspective. The gals wanted to stray away from a standard styled shoot and craft something that had a darker + more dramatic vibe. And while Entomology (the scientific study of insects!) might not be a theme you’re thinking of incorporating into the design of your wedding day, we’re absolutely certain you’ll find bits + pieces from this pretty editorial to pin + be inspired by!
Love that giant paper rose? We do and have a DIY here to create one yourself! :)
Curious about this stunning location? The Glen Venue, located in St. Mary, Florida, is a working nursery + wedding venue with an incredible abandoned greenhouse on the property!
The table was set with fun, antique knick knacks, like old floral “frogs” and the prettiest plates + tableware from Anthropologie + West Elm. The cicada details were provided by Jenn from Cetonia Designs.
And love this naked cake, decorated with blooms + berries!
So there you have it! 1920’s glam meets moody Entomology design. A pretty combo, don’t you think? Thanks so much to everyone below for sharing their talents with us today!
