The setting of the sun has been immortalized in art for hundreds of years: paintings, poetry, photography, song. With stunning color tones and emotive shadows, the daily phenomena that we get to experience is a simple beauty that we tend to overlook when it comes to seeking inspiration for wedding design. Yet, as we always encourage our readers to look to nature for inspiration in choosing their color palettes, we turn today to the sunset. Read on for more from the creative director of this wedding inspiration shoot.

More from the floral designer, Erin of Floret Flowers:
“With the rugged beauty of the Washington Coast as a backdrop, this gorgeous Emily Riggs Bridal “Primevere” gown glows with elegance and romance.  The golden light of the setting sun highlights the dusty blush ‘Morganite’ color and the touches of bronze undertones created by two layers blush silk tulle atop silk georgette and silk charmeuse. Featuring a beautiful French floral lace bodice with a gracefully scalloped neckline, the gown is perfectly paired with an organic bouquet of seasonal dahlias, specialty zinnias, lisianthus garden roses and other blush blooms grown and designed by Floret and styled and captured beautifully by Heather Payne.”
