The starting point of inspiration for this natural bohemian wedding styled shoot at Pearl Snap Hall was truly the wedding dress! It demands your attention from the moment you first feast your eyes on it… there’s nothing traditional about it. With its mesmerizing details, there was no arguing that this would be the statement piece, so the collaborators behind the shoot decided to simplify everything else to give the dress as much prominence as possible.
We began to think about what sort of bride would be able to really rock this dress. We concluded that this boho bride would have to be a free spirit that loved simplicity and clean living. This worked out great since the models for this shoot were an actual couple who were both into fitness and healthy lifestyle choices.
For the decor, we went with a modern neutral color palette and kept the tablescape clean and simple. We used all natural tones, woods, grasses, simple glassware and textures to help convey an uncluttered vibe.
In particular, I loved the groom in this shoot, he was such a kind, gentle man. We chose a paired down look for him, allowing the dress be the star; something you’d expect a thoughtful and humble groom, like the one we imagined for this shoot, would be happy to agree to. This venue really spoke to him with the vintage rock-n-roll vibe of the groom’s shed along with the record player – very cool. It was also a hilarious time watching him attempt to get his bow tie tied. After he couldn’t seem to make it work, we tried, and after us, just about everyone else gave it a shot! In the end, it turned out to be an epic fail and we decided that it was too much for his look anyway; he looked better without it.
All in all, during this shoot we were able to capture a lot of great looks and we definitely felt like the venue perfectly suited the couple!
