This styled shoot at GRLS Studio in Tacoma has us dreaming of all things beautiful. Planned by Chloe Nicole Weddings and photographed by Janet Lin Photography, the design captures a whimsical, elegant feel complemented with modern updates and hints. The bride wore a stunning gown from Weddings With Joy with a plunging neckline and delicate train, and the elegant tablescape was graced with dreamy florals and decor.
From Janet Lin Photography:
"Warm tones and soft, feminine details give this timeless bridal editorial a modern romantic appeal. More and more often, I have brides who want a trendy, modern design, but deep down dream of the whimsical, fairy-tale wedding they grew up envisioning. They're caught between two beautiful worlds. I partnered with designer and wedding planner Chloe Nicole Weddings to create this editorial bridal session with those brides in mind; to show them that with intentional planning and carefully curated design elements, they can have it all: timeless, romantic and modern.
An intentional use of textures brings together modern and romantic while still conveying a sense of weightlessness and simplicity. Hand-painted, whitewashed stoneware with raised, lace-like detail give the table setting an interesting and fresh presentation. White brick and soft, airy table linens effortlessly marry the old and new.
There's something magical about how the floral elements are a focal point and yet are understated in a way that doesn't overwhelm the simplicity of the overall design. Touches of wispy, bleached wheat accentuate the soft nature of the aesthetic. The perfect pairing of natural greenery against the white brick and warm blooms creates an intricate balance of fresh and traditional.
This gorgeous cake is an original Sift and Gather design, dreamt up, sketched out, and brought to life. In a world where a wedding cake described as 'timeless and romantic' can easily become predictable, Sift and Gather hit it out of the park by creating this unique show-stopping piece that exemplifies romance and individuality.
The stunning dinner menus serve double duty as place cards, keeping the table setting clean yet elegant. The invitation suite featured delicate and feminine calligraphy, a perfect fit for this romantic scene."
