So have you guys started planning for Thanksgiving yet? Not gonna lie, this holiday can really sneak up on us unsuspecting bloggers, busy swooning over other lovely events and whatnot. Things can get stressful fast so we thought we’d ease ourselves into planning mode by going on a mini (well our idea of mini) virtual shopping spree at all our fave entertaining spots. This copper basket is a good start, we think.
Yeah, Those cliffs and trees as a bridal setting have us pretty intrigued, too. For this earthy bohemian editorial, Brooke of Brooke Michaelson Photography hooked up with Alexia + Emma of Whimsy Events and Design and Sarah of On Solid Ground Vintage Rentals to get all the details in place. Can you imagine how fun it would be to get the creatives in your area together for a day of shooting in such a stunning place? Sounds amaze.
For part of the shoot, the bride wore a handcrafted headpiece by Whimsy Events and Design, and later they switched it out for this bold asparagus fern shawl. How unique is that?
Brooke says, The cliffs and rocky grounds along the St. Croix were the ideal spot for our vision! As we were setting up, we kept noticing large potholes filled with algae that had formed along the cliffs over time. It was the perfect marriage of beauty and wild earth.
Inspired by the raw elements that the Midwest brings, they tied rocks and minerals in with wild florals and these dusty, romantic colors.
The evening came to a close with a cozy lounge area complete with a vintage wicker love seat, a vintage coffee table overflowing with raw minerals, modern terrariums filled with even more raw minerals, and a mix of neutral pillows and throws. Behind the lounge sat a small vintage table holding a naked cardamom cake wrapped in thyme.
This cake is heavenly! Thanks to the team below for all the earthy inspiration!
Any vintage fans out there? How about botanical themes? Or a fairytale wedding gown? We’ve got them all today in this BEA-utiful botanical editorial by photog Erin Trimble. Here’s what the team says:
This styled shoot was all about the idea of paying homage to the past as well as embracing the new beginnings that uniting in love brings. Our shoot took place at Michler’s Greenhouse, a true gem in Lexington, Kentucky. This family run business has been operating since 1902 and has structures standing that are over 100 years old! With Michler’s incredible greenhouses as our backdrop, our vision of embracing history while looking to the future really came to fruition.
This lovely from Sara Seven makes a rather fitting gown for the scene, don’t you think?
Vintage + antique pieces blended with greenery and china makes quite the storybook table scape.
Erin says, Our bride’s breathtaking bouquet is made of locally grown Queen Anne’s Lace, locally grown Blueberry Juniper, local Echeveria, ‘Patience’ garden roses, and Scabiosa pods.
So many thoughtful details, like hand woven napkins, gold dipped antlers, spools, a cigar box, the list goes on…
How charming. Thanks Erin Trimble the rest of the vendors involved!
