It’s so refreshing to hear how creatives find inspiration in the everyday, and Kelly Perry beautifully articulates how she stumbled upon inspiration for this delicate rust-inspired wedding shoot. Keep reading for more on her inspiration.

From Kelly Perry:

Noticing rust on a cast iron urn during a garden walk is all it takes to spark a story.  It’s something one might walk by and miss on a day full of cares, but with a clear mind and open eyes this small detail becomes truly inspirational.  The antique then reminds us of a couple, whose love is warm, classic and strong, like rust on iron.  Combine the two and imagery alive with meaning emerges.  The sacred job of the designer is not to mix colors or patterns, but to live in the moment, uncovering ordinary beauty and it’s extraordinary meaning.
