i love when a couple comes to me with a fabulous idea for their wedding. we chat about it and together we can come up with the perfect look.
l & d had seen a previous wedding i designed and like the look but want to take it in a bit of a different direction. the original wedding definitely had a more natural rustic and organic feeling. galvanized steel buckets filled with soil, craft paper lining the tables and a homemade quilt for the chuppuh canopy. the bride's friend made jars of pickled rhubarb for the favors. all of the elements fit perfectly together and suited the couple just as well.
a somewhat similar vibe with a bit of twist is the idea that l & d came to me with, "vintage picnic". i love it and i'm so excited to create the look. to get inspired (and to make sure we were all on the same page) i did a quick search for some images that might work and was so excited with what i found. there are a bunch of great vintage picnic themed engagement shoots out there but here are a couple that stood out to me. here is a beautiful engagement shoot from caroline tran and another one here from jackie wonders. both just make me want to pack up and go on a picnic...the idea of a picnic on a warm day with someone special seems like the perfect anecdote for the 12" of snow nyc is supposed to get in the next day or so...enjoy and think of warmer days.
here are a few other images to take the theme a bit further...
