Delaware County Wedding Photographer | Gables at Chadds Ford | Oz-inspired Styled Shoot

Wedding

It’s not every day that I get to show up in a faraway land and just play with colors, textures, and some of the most amazing people in the wedding industry (actually, it happens more than is probably fair!).

I was chatting with Sarah of Juniper & Dash late last year and came up with the idea for a beautiful styled wedding shoot inspired by Disney’s new Oz: the Great and Powerful. We led with an emerald green (oh yes, this was before Pantone came out with their color of the year) with accents of glistening gold and poppy red.

We gathered a great and powerful team and created a magical shoot that sparkles with details and beauty. The talented cast that went into this vision blew me away with their ideas and ingenuity. Without further ado, welcome to our Oz!

The wedding dress and jewelry came from Van Cleve Wedding Pavilion.

I was absolutely enthralled with the makeup work by Cheekadee’s own Emily. Seriously, how incredible is this elegant, emerald look?!

All of our paper products – invitation, menu card, and escort cards – were created with flowing watercolors by Kristy Rice of Momental Designs.

We made some amazing set ups at the Gables at Chadds Ford. The guest table featured gold bricks, reminiscent of the yellow brick road, as well as Papertini’s funky floral designs.

The huge square dining table was so unique – I won’t be surprised if we start seeing more after this. The organic centerpiece flowed from the space using moss, calla lilies, ranunculus, horsetails, aspidistra leaves, rosettes made of galax leaves, “monkey” tails, “witches” broom better known as scotch’s broom and paper poppies from Anne Musing Designs.

There wasn’t a detail overlooked – even the emerald sequined ribbons cascading down the backs of the gold chiavari chairs.

The dessert table was unlike any “wedding” dessert table I’ve ever seen. Rather than one large, central cake we had an array of treats from Bredenbecks and other sweets – a flourless chocolate cake, cupcakes, gold candies, and great, big lollipops. These were gathered together in a forest-y motif with greens, bricks, and branches.

The lighting provided by Synergetic took the scene from good to freaking outstanding.

So you’re getting hitched; congrats! Perhaps you’ve heard of events called ‘bridal shows’. The concept is this: couples (and sometimes their supportive others) come to an awesome venue to check out a smattering of wedding professionals – bakers, invitation designers, DJs, bands, florists, transportation companies, travel companies, wedding coordinators, and photographers. There is usually a fashion show or wandering models displaying some lovely bridal attire. It’s a good time and it gives you the chance to check out a small sample of what is out there and ask a ton of questions without feeling any pressure.I bring this up because I’ll be ...
