Plum and Mauve Wedding Flower Inspiration

Plum + Mauve Wedding Editorial

Lately I have been crushing hard on the color Mauve. Can it please be the new blush?! I love how it elevates many different color palettes and helps blend darker and lighter hues.  I wanted to create a shoot that showcased this gorgeous color. I chose to combine it with deep plum, lavender, pops of nude and peach, with gold accents. It is such an unexpected, moody palette for spring. It was important to me that the overall feel was soft, elegant and refined, nothing overdone or gaudy. Fine Art Film Photographer, Jamie Rae Photo, captured the essence of this shoot perfectly.

The velvet linen from La Tavola is such a show stopper. It laid a beautiful foundation for the brass candlesticks, gold rimmed china, sleek glassware, cross back chairs, and lush, feminine florals featuring sweetness, garden roses, lisianthus, ranunculus, hellebore, and unique foliage.

Much of my floral selection was directed by the season. I love how delicate spring blooms are and knew I wanted to include some of my favorites such as sweet pea, fritillaria, lisianthus, and ranunculus.

Another favorite element of this shoot was the gorgeous cake by Sainte G. It was the perfect mauve color with hand painted gold accents. It really only needed simple floral adornment.

Each creative involved did such a wonderful job capturing the refined, elegance of this shoot and I’m thrilled with the result.
