Romantic Lavender Field Wedding InspirationTHE GANEYS
Whilst we’re enjoying the most beautiful Autumn here in New Zealand, today’s wedding inspiration shoot makes me yearn for Spring again! With the heavenly lavender field setting providing the most perfect backdrop, it conveys a timeless romance with rustic chic styling guaranteed to leave you feeling inspired…..
A few words, by way of introduction, from the lady behind the lens on this shoot Emily Ganey of The Ganeys….. “There is something so romantic about lavender fields. Only blooming a few weeks every year, they’re incredibly calming, with the savory scent and the buzzing of bees as the insect makes their way from one plant to the next. Woodinville Lavender is the perfect spot for an intimate wedding in the Seattle area. The peaceful venue at dusk became the inspiration for this shoot.
The floral invitation suite from Grey & Cake set the stage for the event. The intricate, and vintage botanical print surrounded the elegant script, invited guests to the intimate event.
The bride, Christina, looked incredible in her lace gown with beaded detail by Jenny Packham from The Dress Theory. The lace sleeves and illusion back added a soft elegance to her look. Her hair was tousled in a loose updo, complete with a delicate headband. Yessie Libby Makeup Artistry did an incredible job applying natural makeup highlighting the bride’s beautiful cheekbones. The groom, Curtis, wore a navy suit with a floral tie and a lavender boutonniere. His cognac leather accents completed the look.
In the bride’s hands, she carried an organic, jewel-toned bouquet, filled with iris, lavender, and deep colored foliage created by Gather Design Company.
The ceremony took place among the lavender. Exchanging their vows between the rows, the sight was breathtaking. Guests found their seats at long farm tables with elegant cross-back wooden chairs. Styled by Gather Design Company, tapered candles and an array of centerpieces in lavender and gold vessels welcomed the guests to the event. The menu was set atop gray ceramic plates from Pedersens Event Rentals.
After dinner, the bride and groom and their guests enjoyed the 3-tiered hand painted cake from Lilac Cake Boutique.”
Isn’t every detail just perfection?? I love lavender – and hope Pantone’s pick for 2018 will mean we see lots more of it this year! A huge thankyou to everyone involved behind the scenes of this dreamy editorial, but especially to Emily of The Ganeys who captured it all so beautifully.
