Felipe & Lauren were such a pleasure to work with for this Fall inspired shoot. They are a couple that met during church and high school. They said they had a blast and so I think I did my job well, wink wink! So much to say about this shoot. I love the Fall! The weather, the color of the trees, the smells, the pumpkin flavor everything! This shoot was put together to be featured on the wedding blog Bridal Hot List by the fabulous creative team of Hope Stanley – Bridal Stylist, Sarah Toner with Floral Riot.
Horsetheif Canyon Park in San Dimas was the location I picked because of a Fall/SoCal/Rustic look. I love the trees there! I love the open space too, it was great for setting up the table and chairs.
“What inspired me was the gold on the gown. I wanted something that would keep with more of the retro feel of the gown with out being to formal and stiff. The car was also a factor it is a modern twist on a 60’s classic much like the gown. I chose blue shoes to add a bit of personality and to make the gown suited more for a young bride eloping. The tie has touches of the blue and gold in the paisley print. We wanted to keep the setting natural and fall inspired. Deer plates with a hint of blue where used and gold antique silver. We wanted the feel of a woodland cabin but outside in the fall.” – Hope Stanley – Bridal Stylist
I saw the gold embellishments in the dress. They were very detailed. Coupling that with the fall shoot, I started with French marigolds. They have the brown accents just like the beading on the dress. From there I choose fall foliage (maple, oak and ginkgo). Ginkgo has the fluttery golden leaves, which I love. Cream tuberose was added for its fragrance and golden celosia provided the visual highlight for the piece. – Sarah Toner with Floral Riot
