This beautiful photoshoot, styled by Keestone Events masterfully balances the best of both worlds with natural, rustic and organic elements mixed with softer, lighter details and textures. It’s the type of visually arresting combination that showcases beautiful craftsmanship like the impeccable tablescape, laden with metallic accents, modern stone placecards and candle holders, juxtaposed with lush, delicate blooms in muted hues.
We’re also super thrilled to see not one, but two dazzling wedding dresses from Watters, inspiring brides with different and equally stunning looks for their wedding day. Ben Q Photography has in completely in awe with these lovely images!
From Keestone Events: The venue we were at is called Stonecrest and we were inspired by its name and location. It’s aptly named with its raw, gravelly pathways and a majestic stone wall to complete. The Paper Romantics continued in the theme by bringing in stationery with marbling on the textured paper and envelopes while She in the Making, handwrote each name on rock slabs in lieu of your traditional place cards.
To balance out the rock textures, we incorporated mid century styled chairs, copper and concrete candle holders, along with copper details in the flatware and floral container to bring a pop of color. To bring all of this together, we went with romantic florals with soft peach and ivory tones. It was important that we showcase the unique rock surfaces at the venue, but still maintain the soft, organic look that we all enjoy. Aside from the flowers, we used a flowy table linen, moody blue napkins and ribbon to tie it in.
We also wanted to highlight two looks for this bridal editorial. Watters provided a beautiful gown with intricate vintage lace that we paired with a veil. The goal was to show fluidity, and to bring a romantic and ethereal vibe.
The second wedding dress they provided has such a full and feathery skirt that it called for soft, loose curls cascading down to match the ribbons in the bouquet. Both looks were paired with two different sets of jewelry.
