Gilded Winter Romance on Ruffled
So excited to share some drool-worthing images from our Gilded Winter Romance shoot featured on Ruffled. Using “texture” as inspiration for the shoot, Juli Vaughn created a dazzling display using a mixture of metal, tile, patterns, beading, and more. Our darling Heidi Geldhauser of Our Labor of Love was on hand to capture every last glitzy detail. It’s always a pleasure working with these talented ladies.
From the event designer and stylist, Juli Vaughn: In the last shoot, the image we selected inspired buzz words like idyllic, soft, fluffy, ethereal, and floral. Buzz words are a great way to figure out your style parameters. One of the words I hear in the wedding and design world quite a bit is “texture.” Texture is one of my favorite things to play with. Incorporating texture can take a simple color scheme from a snooze-fest to something really thought provoking. Our inspiration image for this shoot has a ton of texture – tile, fur, mixed patterns, metals, marble, and wood – but the neutral tones create a base.
When combining textures, make sure that the colors complement each other or are neutral enough that they don’t take on an “everything but the kitchen sink” appearance. It’s similar to the way a designer uses multiple patterns in a well decorated room. As long as the color scheme is adhered to – you can toss in pattern to your heart’s content and it all goes together.
A money-saving side note to incorporate texture: One unusual and cost effective thing we did was to take one of the gorgeous linens from Party Tables and create a wallpaper effect with it. This can be a way to introduce pattern into a space for the less “crafty” brides out there. Order a large tablecloth (or multiple ones) and simply hang them as backdrops. You won’t have to purchase a bunch of material that you’ll never use again!
