Today’s inspiration is brought to us by Finch & Thistle and photographed by the talented Bryce Covey. I feel like this could be in the fields of Provence. And, how gorgeous is this lavender? The color is absolutely eye popping and I can just imagine the lovely fragrance- its soothing aroma allowing any stress to disappear on the big day. From Finch & Thistle
“I wanted to keep the d√©cor soft and simple to complement and not distract from the stunning setting of the Sequim¬†lavender¬†farm so I chose a color palette of sage green, white, lilac and a faded orange. To decorate the beautiful, rustic cake table I created a floral runner with a garland of seeded eucalyptus and worked in purple scabiosa, garden roses and¬†lavender¬†to add some color. I added antique English vinegar bottles and vintage¬†lavender¬†glass from my personal collection for texture and height and draped the runner into a Provencale market basket. The sweet¬†lavender-lemon vegan cake by Kerissa Bakes was garnished simply with stems of fresh¬†lavender¬†on top of the rough white buttercream icing and displayed on a scalloped white cake platter.
I created several bridal bouquets for this shoot. Simple single arrangements of¬†lavender¬†and creeping oregano kept the look very simple and elegant and would be a perfect choice for bridesmaids or flower girls, whereas the bride‚Äôs bouquet was an organic mix of cream and faded orange garden roses, papery soft lilac scabiosa, sage,¬†lavender¬†and creeping oregano with purple nepeta (or catmint) and astilbe from my own garden. Some salmon berry leaves and seeded eucalyptus added texture.”
