During this chilly love week, our hearts are warmed with the memory of one of our favorite projects to date, the milk + honey wheat-inspired shoot.
(Take a look at Inspired By This for the feature.)
Warm colors of honey + the delicate wings of little bees were the inspiration for this styled shoot featuring the beauty of natural elements. The graceful fluidity of soft, flowy cream fabric added a brightness to complement the organic textures + hues of golden honey, just as milk lightens a cup of tea.
The balance of classic + clean with careful, luscious layers of rich flavors and details was accompanied by a color palette influenced by the full spectrum of honey shades. We were drawn to the chargers made of local clay, as the color is similar to the more assertive, dark honey. This was the perfect contrast to the bright golden yellow tones found in the more fruity and mild flavored honeys we chose to highlight.
Isn’t it amazing that the work of such tiny creatures and the seemingly simple decision of the nectar gathered can determine the overall flavor of honey produced? Nature is purely inspiring, far beyond surface beauty.
A wispy, delicate stalk of wheat inspired the style of airy, free-form floral arrangements + neutral linen napkins. Remaining true to nature is something we value, and the flowers from Roses & Mint were the perfect match as they embraced modern, organic shapes. The moody floral shades created so much depth, and the mix of textures added the final touch.
The way the character-filled venue, The Lalumondiere, embraces their breathtaking surroundings is trulycaptivating. The charm shines through the quaint + artfully curated corners that are so welcoming, you will never want to leave. Their ivy covered ‘birdcage’ is the perfect frame to a joyous event like the sacred union of two people. Natural character is something to appreciate + celebrate.
“Milk and honey” is a metaphor for all things good. Looking back, we could not have dreamed up a better theme to represent the work of such an amazing team of creatives.
