Editor’s Note: The rich, romantic, and lavender inspired color palette of Verbena Floral Design‘s wedding inspiration photo shoot is the perfect way to celebrate the beauty of 2o13. Alongside French Kiss Events and Jennifer Ballard Photography, Verbena gave us nothing less than wedding perfection!
Vanessa Watters of Verbena Floral Design shared her inspiration for the design of this wedding photo shoot, as well as some expert advice for couples thinking about their wedding florals…
For our fall lavender shoot, we found inspiration from the rich colors, evening light, and coziness that comes with the change of seasons. Our color palette included the warm and burnt tones of autumn, and had a wide range for us to draw from. Effortless romance was brought to life through the bohemian gown, the long stemmed bouquet (the ultimate bouquet in romance department), and the simple but extremely elegant calligraphy. All these elements just ooze romance and allow you to focus on the true theme of all weddings: love.
When considering your overall wedding esthetic and ﬂoral design, consider looking at your color palette the way you look at a paint chip, with two or three shades on either side of your chosen color. Flowers work the same way and offer hundreds of shades and variations, that when blended together, create a truly elegant and cohesive look. Additionally, when gathering wedding inspiration from blogs, Pinterest, and magazines, always consider where in the world, geographically spearking, your wedding will take place as opposed to where the inspiration content was designed. Depending on your location, ﬂoral availability and colors will vary greatly. Giving your ﬂoral designer creative license to transform your inspiration into something that will be perfect for your particular venue will ensure you get the most cohesive overall design.
