Rich Autumnal Wedding Style on Vancouver Island


Let's talk for a moment about impeccable styling, shall we.  This inspirational session photographed on Vancouver Island at the Victoria Golf Club by Kelly Brown, is an exquisite example of what it means to utilize natural light, both indoors and out, to convey mood and capture details.  And the details here are nothing short of autumnal perfection.  

While adhering to a diverse yet tight palette of burnt orange, caramel, amber, and white, with a healthy dash of deep Coastal greens and the odd pop of coral thrown in, there is room to focus on layers of texture.  From the earthy lichen-dappled rocks, to Tuktu Paper Co.'s weathered invitation suite, to the smooth glassware and decanter, and finally to the bride's lace gown, every element of this shoot is tied woven tightly together by a harmonious palette, luxurious style, and the use of ranunculus of course.  Bordering on both the heirloom and the modern, the ranunculus used here keeps the palette flowing throughout the shoot without appearing either showy or minimalistic.  The use of ranunculus encourages the floral arrangements to be kept loose and organic, and compliments meandering greenery and small vibrant buds well.  The setting, of course, allows for images that exude a rich, heriloom feel indoors and a wild, natural feel outdoors--both which offer a moody yet vivid ambience.

I can't help but returning to the images here over and over again, and hope you enjoy the ideas featured here as an inspirational start to your week.  For more organic, autumnal inspiration, check out this 'Earth' inspired shoot by Brittany Mahood featured here on Vale + Vine.
