Fields of Gold – 1970s Inspired Wedding Editorial
MICHELLE ROLLER PHOTOGRAPHY
Today’s inspiration shoot is taking us back to the 1970s, with some bright and beautiful boho wedding ideas that are just perfect for these late Summer days. Set in wide open fields of gold, just outside of wine country in the heart of Central California, it captures an angelic innocence and purity of nature that perfectly suits the free-spirited vibe of the 1970s……
The creative team shared these words about their vision and inspiration for this stunning editorial…. “Janet Tacy of Sandcastle Celebrations had a vision of wildflowers being the sole inspiration and pulled together a team of creative individuals who value the idea of one-of-a-kind creations. Fete and Quill created the groovy invitations and menus utilizing hand-painted and hand-crafted vintage fabric and other textures. She researched vintage fonts to utilize on the invitations and the menus. We’ve never seen anything like it! They are fun and unique and so very 1970’s. As well, Fete and Quill crafted the dinner menus using pressed wildflowers from around her property. So creative!
Let’s talk about that bouquet! Hand-tied in a blush Silk and Willow ribbon, Eden Floral created a one-of-a-kind bouquet full of poppies, blue delphinium, chamomile daisies, lupine and clover. Everything we could ever want in a wildflower bouquet! Some foraged, some home-grown, all locally and responsibly sourced.
Whitney at Papercake Events created those awesome and so very 1970’s patterned cookies. She can pretty much make anything your heart desires. Her cookies and cream chocolate gems, sugar cookies, and chocolate cake pops all echoed the fun and funky color scheme. These were fun and unique keeping with a simple and eye catching 70’s pattern!
Central Coast Tent and Party provided the table top rentals. The white rustic table and white ghost chairs in the fields of golden daisies exemplified a clean and simple aesthetic. This created a modern touch without distracting from the 1970’s vibe. Adorned with copperware, clear plates and stemware, your attention is focused only on the flowers especially that dynamite wildflower centerpiece. A hand-thrown ceramic footed vessel held old world florals like geraniums, wisteria, wild buttercups and bachelor buttons, all 70’s favorites.
Everything about this shoot made us want to host a wedding with Wildflowers as the inspiration! And Michelle Roller did an amazing job at capturing all that golden ethereal light that we LOVE, something you see in almost every 1970’s picture or album cover. Stay wild and free my friends.”
Have you ever seen anything so…. glorious?? That field of gold and the wild floral arrangements in their rainbow colours…. glorious is the only word for it!
