Here’s a shoot that proves you don’t have to go to France to live out your dream of a Parisian wedding (perhaps for the honeymoon though?). Photog Ashley Willis of Firm Anchor explains: We are very much inspired by the Parisian lifestyle, and this wedding pays tribute to that alluring elegance that draws us in and sweeps us up in a romance that engages all of our senses. The Parisian lifestyle tiptoes the line between elegance and decadence with great ease. When creating this look, we wanted to stay true to the Parisian nature and create a scene that feels both effortless and yet completely thought out. Setting the tone for an artistic vision, our wedding was shot at the Whiskey Row Lofts in Louisville, KY steeped in a rich history of French forefathers and artisans past.

Ashley: “Mon chéri, tu es une œuvre d’art” translates, “My darling, you’re a work of art”.

As guests move from the ceremony to the reception, they are invited to find their table as they pour themselves a drink and find their escort tag attached to their vintage teacup. Each table is numbered by the custom labeled bottle of wine waiting for the guests to enjoy upon their arrival. The table is set with fresh warm bread and authentic French cuisine with colors and textures that invite guests to enjoy a romantic evening amongst the ones they love.

Didja happen to catch this morning’s colorboard post? We’re all about those desert pastels today. After seeing how Stefanie Miles Events dreamed up this stunner of an inspiration shoot based on that soft, summery color scheme, you’ll be too.

Apryl Ann Photography captured it all just beautifully, we think:

The muse: Wild and lush garden florals paired with air plants and cactus created an interesting juxtaposition of soft and hard. Lilac, gray, and brown wood tones paired together for a concept that is a little less ‘sweet’, while sage green and mustard kept the design light and colorful.

One quick peek at our past colorboards and you’ll see that the options for wedding color schemes are endless. Who knew mixing neon + neutrals would look so cool, or that popsicles could inspire an entire wedding? After years in the biz, coming up with a new colorboard every now and then to inspire the next pretty event just keeps us on our toes. Even better if we can see them come to life. Our latest unlikely combo is inspired by this unique image of desert cacti in the loveliest of pastel tones…

With pastel versions of earth tones paired with a little pop of lilac, we couldn’t wait to see what kind of stunning event would come out of this set. Lucky for us, the talented Apryl Ann Photography + Stefanie Miles Events got together and brought this snippet to life with this inspiration shoot.
