If your goal when planning your wedding is to host a celebration that is simple, unfussy, and focused on community, then take a cue (or several) from this wedding inspiration shoot from stylist Kae + Ales and photographer Emilia Gunko. Intentionally designed to minimize the excess that often comes along with weddings, we see some details very specifically chosen while others are left completely out of the planning. A neutral color scheme (easily adaptable to any season of the year), rustic detailing (worn wood tables and cutting boards, cement candle holders), and delicious food are at the center of this design.

Read on for more from the stylist, Kae + Ales:
“Delicate and simple with just a hint of femininity, this light-drenched shoot is the perfect inspiration for a spring-to-summer wedding. We set out to capture a small and intimate celebration, complete with natural details. 

By keeping the details organic and unfussy, we were able to shift the focus of the wedding onto the couple and their guests. We love the concept of the simple wedding because it means each item selected by the couple is thoughtfully chosen and intentional. 

We imagined the festivities taking place outdoors as the sun began to set behind a lush tree line. Aged pots from the garden were filled with branches of foraged fruit and aromatic blossoms. Taper candles in simple cement holders flanked the overgrown centerpiece, adding just the perfect amount of ambiance to the tablescape. Our bride wore a simple yet elegant silk gown accentuating her look with a simple monochromatic bouquet of greens sweetly tied together with a gentle ivory ribbon.”

So in love with this shoot! Emilia Gunko did an amazing job capturing the simple joys of this concept – that flower girl, ADORABLE! I love working with couples that want to strip back the layers of wedding fluff + create a truly unique + intimate wedding experience for themselves + their guests. These feel like the most authentic + reverent celebrations of marriage a couple can have. Stunning design work from the team!
