Fine art romance meets artistic wedding styling in this watercolor and lace shoot! The incredible Kruse and Vieira Events styled this utterly romantic shoot in a blooming cherry orchard, where shades of blue and sweet calligraphy details pair with a watercolor print and lace wedding dress.
The blooming cherry trees on the graceful grounds of the Aspen Wye River added a romantic, ephemeral quality to the beautifully styled details Kruse and Vieira brought to life. A grand table was set beneath the flowering branches, with delicately patterned linens in indigo blue. Intrigue Designs used anemone and thistle to capture the blue and white palette in their floral designs, mixing the bold flowers with silvery green eucalyptus in the centerpiece and the bride’s bouquet. A garland of branches accented the champagne bar set with vintage coupes and the seating chart, with guests’ names in elegant calligraphy script written on deep blue watercolor cards.
The ethereal romance of the setting was beautifully translated into the bride’s attire with a Kate McDonald Bridal gown adorned with cap sleeves of eyelash lace. Her elegant updo showed off stunning teardrop statement earrings, while rosy lipstick and delicately smokey eyes created a fresh beauty that was perfect for the spring setting. The groom’s three piece suit in bold navy was a gorgeous complement to the shades of blue that gave the shoot depth and character.
