I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

This gorgeous styled shoot by Rainbow Chan Weddings gives insight into how you can use contrast to bring drama and spectacular beauty to your wedding. From the majestic cherry trees at Langdon Hall heavy with vivid pink blossoms, the dark red in the bouquets and tablescapes beautifully arranged by Releve Blooms, to the white and grey wardrobe palette and the maroon linens paired with gold and white at the tables, the designer’s vision to showcase artistic contrast is awe-inspiring. These images expertly captured by Artiese Studios will have you swooning for days.

A beautiful and picturesque parochial getaway, a cul-de-sac amid a colorful cornucopia of southern Ontario’s countryside’s most prized scenic retreats. Bringing together a touchingly elegant color palette, lovingly assembled custom designs, a premier selection of wardrobe choices, and nature’s very own beautifully simple aesthetic adornments to make an unmistakably powerful artistic quality was our premier goal for our latest styled shoot.

Nestled down a quiet country road in the comfy community of Cambridge, just a stone’s throw away from Kitchener, is the namesake for our style shoot, Langdon Hall Country House, an absolutely stunning country estate surrounded by breathtaking scenery and picture-perfect locations for a truly unforgettable wedding day experience. One stylistic aim our designers had intended for this styled shoot was the development and emphasis on the theme of contrasts; between light and dark, between color and monotone, between us and nature. And with a cursory glance through our gallery, one can see these very same contrasts unfold to create a true unity between contrasting elements. From the get-go, one can see the contrast between the color of bright-maroon red in the floral arrangements, between bouquets and boutonnieres for lapels, and the subdued light ashen grey and lily white wardrobe palette. A contrast of a color scheme which engages the senses to one which is soft and simple creates an engaging and appealing aesthetic for the wedding’s overall theme.

Using a simple setup for the wedding ceremony location in a perfect outdoor setting surrounded by Langdon Hall’s natural greenery, and right in front of cherry trees that perfectly fit the maroon red theme from earlier, our photo-shoot capitalized on every part of Langdon Hall’s perfect location to create a truly exquisite wedding day experience. For the dining table setup, we see again the use of contrasting bright maroon coupled with deep dark, shimmering gold and pure white; a genuinely eclectic ensemble of colors brought together perfectly for the scene. The stationery items as well, fashioned with a rustic and aged look, give the wedding day’s overall impression one of depth and refinement. All in all, with many contrasting elements left written on the canvas of our photographs, our latest styled shoot was an unbelievable pleasure for us to have brought to life.

From the picturesque countryside setting, to the themes of contrasts in our design choices, to the use of Langdon Hall’s beautiful forestry and wonderfully crafted garden. All in unison, a wondrous sea of contrasting elements coming together to bring something beautiful to life. And we hope you find it beautiful too, the magic within the grounds of Langdon Hall.

The stunning white barn venue, The White Sparrow, often hosts weddings in light soft colors that coordinate marry well with the space. So the The White Sparrow planning and design team hooked up with always-amazing florists at Celebrate Dallas to create a shoot that celebrates the moodier side of a pastel palette. We love the black details like the tapers and chairs and the dusty blue in the beautiful tablescape. And the cake by Sugar Bees Sweets is AMAAING. Callie Manion Photography was on hand working her magic and we have all these gorge images to show for it!

Moody, soft tones and deep, rich textures come together to create an incredibly stunning vibe in this gorgeous inspiration shoot planned and designed by Kaleb Norman James. We’re basically obsessing over Every. Single. Detail.  The florals also by Kaleb Norman James, are amazing—a striking mixture of deep garden roses and pale Italian ranunculus and flowering branches. Bespoke Strokes created a multi-toned calligraphy invitation suite with plenty of romance that perfectly introduces Hotel Ballard, the Seattle venue.  And finally, the jewel-encrusted, and caped Jenny Packham gown is vintage, glam and totally current all at once. It’s perfect for the seasonally-transitional style of the shoot and all it’s inspiring details as captured to perfection in these film images by Sarah Carpenter Photography.

The team at 3 Leaf Floral created this stunning desert inspiration centered around their take on a moody spring palette. Filled with dusty pastels in the form of pale blue, whimsical whites and terra cottas the hues are both intriguing and soft. The drama of a high collar Allure gown from Annelise Bridal Boutique accentuate the wild florals, many of which were locally sourced from Western Colorado farms. Cosmos, garden roses and delphinium were held together by a smoky hued Silk and Willow  ribbon while dark candles were used to add contrast to the pastel landscape. K Robinson Photography was behind the lens working film magic to capture all the stunning details.

We LOVE this shoot. Moody with ocher hues and a modern sensibility that’s so fresh and romantic. Here’s what Landon Jacob, the fabulous photographer, had to say about it: “We were all craving some personal work- something with deeper hues, something atypical from most of our weddings. We live in the South, where most of the weddings are light filled, with soft hues and tons of lace which is all gorgeous, we just wanted to dabble in something we normally don’t see. Jessica Rourke brought the styling, and Fern Studios created some killer florals. It was a dream to photograph! The lighting was incredible!” Well, Landon, we’re sure glad you guys dabbled with something a littler different because we’re obsessed!
