Utah Valley Bride

Lavender Fields Pantone Color of the Year

Fields of lavender never get old in my opinion. I feel that every girl has dreamed of running through a field full of flowers once in their lives, am I right? And what better way to do that then in a wedding dress created by Carol Hannah. When coming up with the concept of the shoot I wanted to incorporate that classic traditional feel with a more up to date modern ascetic. Infusing these two styles can be a little tricky without going over board on one side or the other. The more traditional traits from the tear drop shaped wedding ring, the white and gold foiled cake, to the invitations suite reminisces of a more romantic era. While The Potted Pansy uses her unique floral designs, adding texture and different tones of purple to bridged the two designs together.  All the vendors came together to make this lavender shoot at the Young Living Farm blend and fuse the Pantone color of the year together perfectly.

Black Wedding Inspiration

So excited to have Utah Valley Bride feature this black wedding inspiration over on their blog today. Here is some little details about the shoot and some of the inspirations behind the design of this incredible shoot.

Even though the white space of the venue offers a naturally clean and minimalist design, we wanted to take a step in the other direction and show off how well black can make for a polished design. The color plays dramatically in this setting, but I'm love the sophisticated non-traditional steps we took to make it all come together. 

When you choose a dark color as the focal point of your wedding, adding textures and little pops of color such as gold and mauve will make sure everything doesn't get lost. Fresh flowers are a must and they bring life to the shoot. By not going with the typical dark purple or red it gives more of an organic feel and a blast right back into the design. 

Natural elements like the inky charred wood and touches of gold on the table give the wedding a refined look. By adding in candles and the different colored roses to the centerpiece offers a softness and romance.
