Smoke & Honey Wedding Inspirations
The bride´s curly hair, the dry grass on the fields, the blossoms of the bouquet on her arm – here in Colorado we´re about to discover dreamlike smoke and honey bridal inspirations.
Just like nature bride and groom play the exciting game of contrasts. Lush green meets soft honey, purest white meets elegant grey.
What´s the bridal bouquet for his sweetheart is cognac and cigars for him. Also savors the day, after all it´s his wedding day, too…
Colorado´s nature itself was inspiration enough for event designer Belle Soul Weddings as she told us: “The inspiration for this shoot came from the beauty of the honey colored foliage of the Colorado landscape playing against the grey of the rocks and the water.“
It always takes two for a wedding and so she didn´t concentrate all her attention to the bride alone: „A desire to highlight the masculine details of the rustic terrain by giving the groom equal importance while indulging in the soft bridal romance of the day led us on an incredible journey to create this inspired shoot.“ the talented artist raves on.
By the way not only did she come up with the idea and the concept she also created the stunning wedding cake and fascinating flower arrangements to turn wedding venue Castlewood Canyon State Park into a real paradise for bridal couples.
Photographer Tamara Gruner was also an important member of the team who wants to share her wonderful pictures of this unique shoot with us now. Enjoy!
