The style elements of this beautiful shoot, we think, would make even the Great Gatsby & Daisy blush. We started with the basic components, but of course gave it a California twist! Set against the lavish rolling hills of Paso Robles vines, the classic white farmhouse at HammerSky Vineyards is the perfect backdrop not only for fictional extravagance, but a story amour based in reality as well. The late afternoon brilliant sunlight added an inviting warmth to the mostly neutral palette of cream, butter, brass, hunter & fern, we worked within. From the table scape set in the classic barn to the lawn picnic scene, no detail was left to chance. This incredible team of style adventurers worked together seamlessly to bring this story to life visually. Rich in lush details, we hope you’ll be inspired to pursue your own style story for a one of kind wedding day through these dynamic images.
My favorite details: The 20’s style art deco screens used in the ceremony which we decorated with simple clusters of lush bloom & vine, the vintage hat boxes adorned with trophies on the aisle, the houndstooth arm chairs used as accents for the ceremony & reception, Mark’s own vintage tea cart filled with period liquor decanters from Judi at Embellish, in the picnic scene, the gold ivy rimmed china set, the millinary black feathers we used in the floral stylings, the apricots & golden berries we gathered on the tables, the sequined chevron table runner, the menus designed by Necia at Umbrella Tree ~ truly loved it all & the wonderful people we worked with.
