More from Lorena of Rustic Vintage, When I first started to plan the design for this styled shoot, I knew I needed to include Marsala, the Pantone Color of the Year. Marsala just adds elegance to any surroundings and rustic or vintage décor! To soften the color a bit, I incorporated blush pinks, ivory and pops of gold. This color combination is perfect for the brides wishing to have a fall or winter wedding! And for the furniture and prop selection I chose to bring in lots of wood textures mixed color fabrics and vintage décor.
The Flower Story crafted the perfect florals for this shoot. The amazing texture, the pops of marsala and the fact that almost every vignette is dripping with beautiful blooms shows how the team’s vision + color inspiration was carried through from beginning to end.
A cute cardigan for the bride is a great idea for weddings taking place in the fall or winter! Shop some of our fave sweaters, to top your dress, below:
