Creative Direction: Delicate Decadence

Gold leaf meets persimmon in this grand autumnal wedding inspiration captured at a historic wedding venue! My idea was to create an autumnal look that was delicate but decadent (my personal favorite design brief). I love a colored wedding dress, and when I saw the gold pleated gown and the russet-hued Carol Hannah dress finished with a black velvet ribbon I knew those were the ones we needed and would use as inspiration for all the other elements. The tiny pleats of the gold gown reminded me of the intricate delicacy of dried ferns and the fall of the skirt made me think of trumpet lilies-graceful but more structured in form. Golden Toffee roses, foraged golden boughs muted blue dried hydrangea and airy stems of dried ferns combined to create the ethereal look.

For the dining table I wanted to create a setting that reflected late summer- wispy dried grasses, playful dancing blooms richer hues- that feeling of summer’s last big breath before fall arrives!

Composed of dried and fresh plants and flowers, this gravity-defying installation was designed to be integrated with the architecture and to appear to be growing up from the floor and floating above.

“Autumn chose every detail of this shoot from the Carol Hannah dresses, the delicate layers of the cake, and linens. What I love is that you can tell that every flower stem, plate, and detail was intentionally thought through and it came together in this beautiful palette and arrangement. The colors while so rich in tones and textures were also so delicate and dainty.”
