Photographer, Emily Delamater, the mastermind behind today’s ultra pretty shoot, took the ‘if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em’ approach to this project you’re about to see. She spills, We shot this editorial here in Maine’s never-ending winter, and designed the shoot around a love and embrace of a long, dark winter season. Perhaps easiest to do now as it is is finally on its way out!
Emily teamed up with florist + stylist Carolyn Snell to create a setting that embodied an ocean-inspired feel, as apposed to nautical. Since so many weddings tend to err on the side of light and airy, they thought it might be really beautiful to indulge the other – darker – side of things. What they created is just so good + perfect for couples tying the knot in the winter. The palette of blues, black, silver and grey is not too feminine, but not too masculine, and the mood was as romantic as it was unique!
While that sweet, two-tone cake by Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott is the star of this little vignette, the team used a mix of fresh + silver-painted blackberries and pears, powdered dark chocolates+ worn wood bowls to decorate the sweets table.
