Styled Shoot: Outdoor Winter Wedding with Two Beautiful Brides

By Season Hurd | | Comment

Prepare yourself for some of the most beautiful light to ever fall on a couple! This stunning outdoor winter wedding styled shoot ends with an ethereal, painting-like view of the horizon that is heavily shrouded in perfect peach light. I see why this location earns the name “Inspiration Point”. It was here that the shoot designer found her inspiration as well. While snowshoeing in the area one day, Maureen Mika saw a grove of trees that seemed to create a natural archway. Fortunately for us, her mind went straight to the concept of a wooded wedding aisle in the snow. (It’s okay Maureen…I see everything in terms of weddings too!) It was the further enhancement of that aisle with a man-made runner of packed snow that had me falling in love with that space as well. What a genius idea! But that space was only the tip of the creative iceberg and a whole wedding shoot would emerge with all the details as beautiful as the view from the top of the hill.

Elements for the shoot were designed to be white and understated like the snowy terrain itself. Color, texture, and shine were added to enhance the areas that needed to attract the eye. Rich bridal makeup, ornately detailed dresses, and fur trimmed covers draw your attention to the gorgeous couple. White hydrangea acts like a neutral palette to showcase the delicate colors of the orchids and tulips as well as the architectural element of grass leaves that arch around one of the bouquets. The invitations, designed by double-threat Kristina Lynn (also the photographer), are very tone on tone and give you the feeling of walking in the brisk air of a winter day. The cake is also tone on tone, drawing interest from the embellishments/texture and the soft color of the flowers. You can appreciate the shape and delicate construction of each piece in this shoot without distraction.

Styled Shoot: Where the Wild Things Are Wedding Inspiration

By Season Hurd | | Comment



Where the Wild Things Are quote, where someone loved him best of all

Today is my birthday but you’re getting a present. I got away from it all…to blog. Because I’m that cool. So today, it is with great joy that I bring you one of my favorite styled wedding shoots of all time. This Where the Wild Things Are wedding has absolutely everything that I love about styled shoots. The team who worked on it thought so far outside of the box and really flexed their creative muscles. There is a lot of real wedding inspiration hidden among the fantasy of this story woven in pictures and meaningful details. Feisty Max is all grown up and the love and acceptance that he seeks is no longer maternal. This time, when his bedroom fades away into a forest, it is a wild kindred spirit of human form that waits for him there. Max, the king of all the Wild Things, has chosen a queen. The boy inside of him still longs for the fantastical. The king and his queen wander the forests, are drawn to faraway lands by the smell of a meal (and it was still hot), and enjoy a wild rumpus. They even included my favorite quote that I say to my children, “I’ll eat you up I love you so!” To wake in the morning and realize that your wildest dreams are real is the definition of true love.

Each season we discover unique clients that enjoy expressing themselves through their wedding day. As wedding professionals we often dream of how we would describe ourselves in a unique way to show future clients that we can work with them to get outside the typical wedding box. We love taking something seemingly so ordinary and turning it into an extraordinary experience. This is where our idea for a Where the Wild Things Are photoshoot began. We wanted to take a childhood story we all know and love and find a way to turn it into a love story. One you could center your wedding on, pulling out layers of details that make the touching words and details of the book carry throughout. We wanted to incorporate many of these scenes from the book, as well as pull in lines from the story to tuck into each scene. From Max’s bedroom growing into the world all around him, to him sailing to some far off land to find his wild thing. Max is made king and makes his wild thing his queen. Their entire day is spent in the wilderness, embracing the beautiful scenery around them. Layering in details of leathers and fur, hinting that the wild things are close by. From the wild picked florals to the hair and bark and feather details in our cake. We caried the beautiful and playful details throughout this wedding. Ending our day of extraordinary adventure with a wild rumpus. And as Max and his bride awake to find they have returned home, they realized they were where someone loved them the most. – Elizabeth Cryan Photography
