Today featured on Green Wedding Shoes is our photoshoot with Feather and Stone Photography! For this shoot we were inspired by the natural array of deep colors and the beauty of an onion’s skin where layers upon layers are peeled away to reveal something raw and equally beautiful within. Textures of earthy clay and torn edged paper were used with Lovely Paper Things who created the gorgeous invitations inspired by the rings of an onion. Also inspired by the beauty of layering, our bride wore the calypso nightfall Mywony gown blanketed with dark layers of of tulle – enough to get lost in! Amy Clarke took our model’s look from deep shades to natural as she painted her lips in a dark stain and pulled back to a lighter more nude natural state again to allude to moving toward the center of her essence.
Our tabletop was laden with rich textures and spices with floral arrangements that flowed throughout the space by Running Wild and alluded to the soft colors and texture of onion skin. Organic textures of ceramic plates and dyed linens from Hostess Haven were set to offer a more relaxed lounge vibe with our high and low dining table combination and rentals from Witty Rentals. The dark and moody backdrop from Back Up Backdrops help set the tone. Guest names and seating assignments were thoughtfully pinned into onion bulbs and Hey There Cupcake! created the perfect cake to compliment the layering in deep indigo and creamy fondant. Naturally, just as expected all this onion-inspired pretty, was enough to bring us to tears!
