Bright gold tones paired with romantic hues of purple and blush added a romantic feel to the affair, and regal design pieces completed the design's sophisticated feel. Keep reading to hear more about the inspiration and execution of this lovely styled shoot.

From Danielle Caldwell Events:

“Done in early January, the theme for this photo shoot was a renaissance-styled wedding. Inspiration was taken from an oil painting, a circular structure, and Louis chairs that caught my eye. I had so much fun selecting the velvet linens and napkins, a nod to January’s frosty mornings, and pale ash-blue that conjures thoughts of a foggy evening as the sun sets in late winter. 

Although muted, colors that hint to somber pastel paintings add a vibrant ambiance to the day that brings warmth and joy. Regal yet bold and powerful, the crystal stemware, silver flatware, and gold-plated charters brought our vision to life. In the bride’s bouquet and the groom’s boutonnière, the oxblood and dark lavender flora added complimentary contrast to the main color palette. 

These colors were carried into the ceremony floral arrangements, which were hung on a circular pipe and drape and placed on wooden pedestals for an accent. The Louis chairs in the ceremony and lush couches in the reception complemented each other very well. To add a bit of ice to complete the winter elegance, a subtle spark, a diamond ring and a chain of pearls for the bride!”
