Two styles make an unlikely match at a venue that pairs well with each.
We love a good styled shoot as much as the next person—maybe more, if we’re being honest—so we were thrilled to hear from Nitina Francis of Burgundyginger Events, who partnered with a number of local vendors on April 18 for a boho-glam-themed shoot.
“The inspiration for the shoot came from several different factors,” Francis says. “The neutral tones and airiness of the venue inspired us to keep the color palette neutral. The dress designer, Anna Campbell, has several bohemian-inspired gowns that have been catching my eye that I knew would be beautiful alongside the ease of the space and could add a touch of glamour, but still be relatable to a wide range of brides. We added the burgundy because it’s trending, but also as the perfect pop of color that could help each bride to make it their own. Also, I am obsessed with all things vintage, so the ’70s themes that have become more popular really appealed to me.”
Though Francis coordinated the shoot, she describes the styling of the session as a collaborative effort.
“All the vendors played a part in making sure that we captured the essence of the theme, and we worked to allow each portion of the shoot to highlight the strengths of each vendor,” she says.
For the bridal bouquet, soft and romantic roses and ranunculus contrasted with the edgier feel of scabiosa and amaranthus for a modern feel, Francis adds. The bride, she notes, sported soft, beachy waves and a palette of peach, rose, champagne, mauve and burgundy on the face, adding to the romantic feel of the session.
“We chose design elements that were neutral colors but had distinctive and unique features, like the scalloped glass chargers or acrylic candle holders,” Francis says. “We really wanted to inspire brides to choose distinct elements to make their weddings their own. As the coordinator for the shoot, I wanted to keep the feel of the shoot attainable yet elegant for the everyday bride that wants to remain relatable but elevate the experience for their weddings.”
