inspiration photo shoot

a few months ago, we collaborated with michael howard of michael howard photography on an "inspiration" photo shoot at the pinnacle tower downtown. it was such a fun and different shoot, and we're really proud of how it turned out!
the inspiration came from a collage called acapulco one by san francisco graphic and fine artist rex ray...if you're not familiar with his stuff you must check him out! the collage is a very 1960's inspired mesh of oranges, greens, yellow, blue and white in oval shapes. we were also very inspired by the le parker meridian hotel in palm springs designed by jonathan adler, and our goal was to bring a bit of that feel onto the pinnacle rooftop garden!
our models were so great and really embodied the spirit of the shoot....many many thanks to the lovely ladies of the bride room for lending us their fabulous amsale dress! (bridesmaid dress is from belk's!)

the pinnacle rooftop garden is such a cool space...modern without feeling cold. we loved the pop of this orange bench against the metal railing.

very unique trellises on the rooftop....and the various plantings for groundcover, including lots of sedum, were just too cool

somehow this space accomplishes modern and rustic at the same time?!

our escort cards reflected the oval theme as seen in the rex ray collage...we even incorporated a ribbon with an oval pattern

our friend ginger english did a great job with the calligraphy!

one of our favorite shots...we hung white lanterns from the wood pergola for a makeshift "light fixture."

and our table arrangements included low white ceramic vessels in the style of jonathan adler filled with belles of ireland and mums in bright greens

we repeated the oval shapes with the handmade napkin rings, and brought a little bamboo in with vintage flatware from the 60's

the bridal bouquet was inspired by one giant daisy...which we accomplished by making the center out of craspedia and orchids, and then did layer upon layer of calla lillies circling around

we loved how the bridesmaid bouquet turned out!

and you definitely need a fun pair of shoes with this wedding!
thanks so much to everyone involved on this shoot. we had a blast!
