I love the pretty lilac colors all throughout this shoot including the bride’s beautiful wedding dress. Joy de Vivre was kind enough to share a little inspiration behind the shoot…

This is a tribute to a romance on the Prairie.  I imagined a beautiful young woman who grew up on her families farm, and fell in love with the man her Father hired to take over for him. They had a small wedding in the grass, surrounded by family.  Her Aunt played the piano.   They ate the best of the summers harvest.  The dinner table was set with rusted iron lanterns, amethyst cut glass candles and personalized place mats.  The violet and pink floral arrangements placed into in rusted copper pails were the perfect contrast to the golden grass.  As the sun went down they lit the candle lanterns hanging in the trees, and the bride put on chunky wool sweater made by her Mother.

The incredible organic cotton dress by Kendal Leonard was the inspiration for the shoot.  The light violet color, the feminine ruffles, the organic but soft cotton linen all set the tone for the rest of the design.  To keep the look feminine but still rustic and organic, we chose a color palate that worked with the neutral colors of the Farmhouse but added that sweetness needed to keep it romantic.
