Midsummer Wedding on the River in Berry and Mint

I’m always fascinated by the inspiration behind a shoot Melanie Nedelko Photography and A Very Beloved Wedding drew ideas for today’s lush midsummer from Shakespeare! The classical styling makes for a gorgeous contrast against the raw river canyon where they set their scene, with hints of rich summer berry, gold, and mint.

The writing and literature major in me adores the Midsummer Night’s Dream references, while the wedding blogger in me revels in the gorgeous details that brought it to life. Graceful Jenny Packham gowns are raiment befitting a fairy queen, with a romantic bridal updo and soft, natural makeup. FlowerUp created a loose, garden inspired bouquet in shades of soft green and cream, adorning the riverside Sweetheart Table in lush summer flowers and vintage mercury and depression glass votives.

A passage from one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays makes appearances throughout the stationery suite:

So we grew together,
Like to a double cherry—seeming parted
But yet an union in partition—
Two lovely berries molded on one stem;
So, with two seeming bodies but one heart.
The play refers to a pair of childhood friends, but the sentiment is also a beautiful representation of the union of marriage.
