I need you guys to ooh and ahh over this autumn editorial my good friend Taylor Olivares planned a few months back. The clean, ivory slate that is The White Sparrow Barn was exploding with warm oranges, soft blush, foraged florals, and the dreamiest velvet. If the vibrant florals weren’t enough to make your jaw hit the wooden floors, the added textures from acorns, figs, wax seals, and hand torn paper should do it.
Funnily enough, this was the first place Taylor and I ever worked together way back in the very beginning of 2018! She really has come so far as a designer; I feel that each styled shoot is better than the last… which makes me even more excited for March 2021 when we work together again at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Oh yeah, you’re gonna want to stay tuned for that one!
Brb, draping everything I own in this lush velvet!!!!
Floral installations/arches are the perfect statement piece for your wedding. They bring your color palette to life while adding the perfect backdrop for your ceremony and post-ceremony portraits.
As if this editorial wasn’t incredible enough, the bride swapped dresses for something a little non-traditional, but a LOT of gorgeous. Olive green is such a flattering shade on everyone as well as the perfect accompaniment to the bold orange hues. The color wasn’t the best thing about this Hannah Tikkanen stunner… THE MOVEMENT!!!!!!! It flowed like a river and caught every ray of sunlight streaming through the barn windows while the open back added a splash of sexy.
Insanely pretty, right? I hope these images have inspired you for your own wedding, even if just to show that you don’t have to wear a traditional white ball gown. Rock a green dress and burgundy suit. It’s your day 😉 And while you’re planning, might I suggest your Vendor Dream Team 😉
