Fast-forward three years later, and my small-scale, state of Texas yarn project (and birthday gift) inspired my next move for Blue Sparrow Events. When I started brainstorming the vision for this shoot, I knew it was going to be difficult to get others on board. When my sought-after venue, Prospect House, welcomed our modern-romantic vision with open arms, our next hurdle was to find a florist and designer who saw our vision, too! Kari, The Flower Girl, jumped for joy over the idea of doing something different. The built-in grommets at Prospect House worked to perfect the design. I let Kari and her team take it away in terms of pattern, and I gave only a little direction on color. The larger than life yarn-art installation guided the vision for the rest of the shoot. We combined light and bright shades with dark features and pops of faux fur which resulted in a ton of dimension. I love the look of layered rugs and a mixture of textures and fabrics. The faux-fur throw blanket and velvet couch added an elevated touch of luxury, while the cane-back chairs at the dinner table gave the modern shoot a touch of vintage elegance.
Get ready to feast your eyes on real-life Cinderella in her modern, 20th century “castle” paired with sharp lines, pretty pastels, and tons of soft textures. Our bridal model, Madeline, had the most beautiful porcelain skin and blonde hair. The blush colored dress, called Ophelia by Ivy and Aster, complemented her complexion perfectly! To keep trending with our need to be different, I requested the bridesmaids hold something more unique than a bouquet, so you’ll see the geometric gold structures filled with flowers and greenery.
