Wildflower Romantic Wedding Inspiration
This editorial tells the story of Evelyn and Ronald who have weathered the toughest storms together in faith. To them, a wildflower represents the beauty and endurance of their marriage and the promise of what is to come. A quiet afternoon was spent getting ready and sharing time with their pup June, before venturing to Coyote Hills to celebrate their vow renewal. Amidst the grasses of the field so beautifully clothed, they recounted the promises they had made. Tastefully designed by Gardens of Grace were invites painted with golden peru ink and Evelyn and Ronald’s favorite phrases on vellum with slate gray ink. The bride wore a flowy Karen Willis Holmes gown with hand-beaded flowers which matched the organic nature of the florals. They ended their celebration with buttercream cake and sugar cookies sprinkled with edible flowers by Junecakes. The focus in planning their vow renewal was on simple and timeless pieces. When all else fades, love is what endures.
This vow renewal shoot was inspired by the wildflower, a symbol of endurance and strength, emerging even in the most unexpected places. It is a nod to the beauty that comes through weathering tough times, a reminder that when all else fades, love is what endures. Organic and delicate details were carefully selected to complement and not overpower the surrounding grasses of the field. Soft, muted touches of beige cream and slate gray tones, were paired with a pop of golden peru hues.
The bridal bouquet and boutonniere were created with the intention of creating a simple and organic feel. Dried elements were paired with fresh, cream toned flowers.
The attire was kept classic, simple, with small stunning details. The bride wore a Karen Willis Holmes dress that was carefully beaded with flowers and foliage, featuring a long and flowy drape, perfect to freely move around in. The groom wore a deep navy blue suit with no tie, to go with the carefree feel of the shoot.
In true fashion, two weeks before the shoot, the styled shoot team were left without their original florist. The mother of the photographer, having taken a few floral arranging classes, stepped in to save the day. Perhaps this seemly less than ideal situation was a nod to the wildflower–left to no formality or structure, the florals somehow came to be with beauty, simplistic, and a touch of wild freedom.
Prior to the shoot, the couple spent time relaxing with their pup June, who occupies a large piece of their heart.
