Winter weddings always look so magical with their perfect snowy white backgrounds and deep romantic colors. Wishing to encapsulate the breathtaking aspects of winter, an incredible team collaborated to produce this stunning styled shoot at the Cashmere Museum in Cashmere, Washington. The concept designer, Oak & Cypress Weddings, used a gorgeous mix of elegant glamour and natural, rustic aspects to create this awe-inspiring wedding inspiration. A Fist Full of Bolts expertly captured the beautiful design, producing truly astonishing photos.
Here’s a little insight about the shoot from planner and designer Amanda Rose at Oak & Cypress Weddings:
I love the stark Washington winters. They hold a special and innate beauty that is both enduring and exquisite. In conceptualizing “Loretta, I Love You,” I hoped to marry these aspects through couture glamour and rustic simplicity. I was determined to find the right locations for the shoot and when a friend offered her parent’s Wenatchee hillside acreage and I unearthed the Cashmere Pioneer Museum through an exhaustive internet search, our concept became reality.
We began to envision a story of a young bride that is tied to her heritage and her home. In every element of the design we honored local craftsmanship – the organic linen, the handmade, ceramic plate ware, artisan wooden boxes and handmade paper. We wanted the decor and florals to be a humble and a harmonious extension of the environment itself.
It was important to me that I worked with a team that were each artists in their own right and I could trust their artistic license to enhance our shared vision. With every wedding and styled shoot, I only hope to set a course, provide vision and support them in their craft.
