Late autumn and winter in the Pacific Northwest can feel long and gloomy with the damp days and lack of color, but we wanted to unveil how these seasons can also be so delicate and beautiful. We were (and are) kind of obsessed with the color palette this time of year: silver gray, frosted almond, buttercream, and soft gold found in the natural vegetation. Dried blooms, weathered foliage in various earth tones, and the white, misty sky, dressed our surroundings.
We paired these hues with mauve, a pale purple which can also be seen as a muddy pink. We brought shades of mauve into our table runner, napkins, chairs, and blooms, and paired with velvet details and deckled-edge paper with fine, script writing. Our garden-style arrangements were a blend of dried and fresh blooms and foliage forged on our studio property and purchased from local growers. Lastly, we chose two lace gowns with illusion bodices done very differently, adding to the feminine touch of the shoot.
