The vision of this blooming paradise editorial is to merge shades of purple and shades of people to create intimate, romantic beauty. Poppy + Prim designed and styled this shoot after their core business value of inclusivity to all forms of love. We stand with their business core values as differences and diversity connect us to create something beautiful. The purple motif, which symbolizes power, plays out beautifully through berry-hued blooms from The Flower Shop Pryor. The luscious berry-hued florals in orchid, plum, fuchsia, and magenta cascaded across the table. The berry blooms give the tropical, industrial setting of The Canopy a wildly feminine aesthetic. In addition, the gold-rimmed plates with a lavender table runner and gold accented chairs from Party Pro Rents play off this feminine aesthetic. Everything about this blooming paradise shoot is designed with elevated elegance. Jill with The Letterbox created an invitation suite that suited well with this in mind. The design would make any guest excited for your wedding day, from the handmade paper to the envelope calligraphy, vintage stamp collage, and vellum jacket.
Bold and powerful, the off-the-shoulder puff sleeve gown from Valentine Bridal in this blooming paradise shoot makes a MAJOR statement. Inspired by Ariana Grande’s recent wedding gown, the dress also included white gloves that added a romantic touch for the ceremony. Likewise, Hayley Hall Hair also took inspiration from the ever-so-talented girl boss Ariana Grande. She kept the look sleek, with soft curls, and of course, incorporated Ariana Grande’s signature look, a half-up party pony. Marci with MLB drew inspiration from the berry-hued blooms and table linens for makeup. She enhanced the model’s natural beauty with subtle purple tones to perfectly complement all the other elements. Subtle purple tones continued with a berry-hued floral tie and a deep green velvet suit jacket from EVERYMAN.
Finally, It’s no secret that a showstopping cake makes a wedding, especially one from Sweet Devotion Cakery. The seven tiered textured cake with whimsical wafer paper flowers grabs our attention. The asymmetrical tiers on the cake are the perfect way to modernize a classic tiered cake. As we all know, a cake is not complete without a glass of bubbly and craft cocktails from Blue Label Bartending. We can all definitely toast to this blooming paradise with berry-hued blooms captured by the immensely talented Mary Keen Photography. Keep scrolling to see more!
