They had us at “mermaid.” Creative directors Olea & Fig Studio describe their inspiration as “seaside mermaid at the beautiful, serene and untamed Ocean Beach in San Francisco” and we’re enthralled.  The team implemented a color palette composed of a range of soft, rustic hues with a rich and mystic accent of blue, embodying the elegance and fantasy of the deep sea. Organic textures and elemants in the tablescape, unruly florals by Delphinium Floral Design, watercolor spills on the stationery by Refine Studio and flowing gracefulness in the bridal styling all add the romantic tale of the sea. Janine Licare Photography  was enlisted to capture the modern mermaid and her whimsical fete and produced these dreamy images.

Kristine Herman Photography and her team focused on minimalism with pops of yellow for this punchy styled shoot. Set at an industrial loft, Thistle and Honey brought in large unruly greens and graphic yellow blooms to create an indoor spring look. They kept things modern with the ghost chairs and a clean, simple look for the bride. Of course we’re loving the strong citron color palette and Kristine Herman captured the inspiration perfectly in these lovely images.

The blue watercolor walls of the Ampersea, a waterfront venue in Baltimore, inspired the modern, textural vibes of this inspiration shoot planned and style by Moore & Co. Events. Organic, gathered florals and ceremony arrangements by Steelcut Flower Company add soft texture to the contemporary elements in white, grey and black accents.  Cheer Up Letterpress created the clean, letterpress stationery and the sleek tailoring of the Modern Trousseau gown feels totally fresh. Jen S Photography was behind the lens capturing all the details and we’re exited to share the images with you today!
