Natural Beauty Wedding Inspiration
Today’s inspiration shoot from dynamic duo Anne-Marie Bouchard of AMBphoto and Brittany of Satin & Snowflakes is so packed with pretty, from the gorgeous florals to the lavish Lhuillier gowns and the super soft and romantic palette, that it will quite simply take your breath away……
I am going to let Brittany, and Anne-Marie’s photos, do the talking for this one! “When photographer Anne-Marie Bouchard and I began planning this shoot, we shared a common vision: a design with simple and organic elements, soft lines, and classic elegance in a setting of natural beauty. Using neutral colors accented with soft gold, grayed jade, and plenty of lush florals, we created a romantic, fresh environment filled with soft, organic details that tied the whole design together.
Le Belvédère is a large space with high ceilings, gorgeous poured concrete floors, and 85 feet of windows overlooking the snowcapped hills and filling the room with warm, natural light. We brought Spring inside, even though the snow was still thick from the previous day’s storm.”
“The head table was surrounded by four birch trees, which were filled with plush greenery and roses. Soft gold with grayed jade accents shone through in the place settings and invitation suite. The 15 feet of tablescape sprawling across the table was filled with beautiful white roses, seeded eucalyptus, sweet peas, anemones and more.”
“Our bride, adorned in two stunning Monique Lhuillier tulle skirts layered atop one another, wore an elegant crown of cluster roses and sweet peas. Hair and make-up were naturally inspired to look soft and angelic, and when placed in a setting of snow and mountains, she looked ethereal.
The décor used were antique specialities, including a 100-year-old tea cart featured with a vintage mirrored gold tray and brandy vases. Highlighting the organic theme were the favors, teardrop shaped glass terrariums filled with sage, moss and pebbles. The cake, a masterpiece of grayed jade, herbs, sugar flowers and gold accents, could not have looked better on its ornate gold cake stand. Capturing the whole scene on film was the only way to go……..”
“Our team of vendors could not have been more gracious and inspiring, and our vision came to life very quickly and easily. Our venue, Le Belvédère, is an extraordinary eco-friendly venue perched on the edge of a cliff in Quebec’s Wakefield, and it has the most beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding rolling hills. It was the perfect backdrop for our shoot
We hope you love the soft, subtleness of this shoot as much as we did creating it.”
My oh my, have you ever seen anything so pretty? I for one love it Brittany! Thank-you so much to the whole team for allowing me to share your exquisite shoot on Chic Vintage Brides.
