Lovely Provencial Lavender Inspiration

Today’s inspiration is brought to us by Finch & Thistle and photographed by the talented Bryce Covey. I feel like this could be in the fields of Provence. And, how gorgeous is this lavender? The color is absolutely eye popping and I can just imagine the lovely fragrance- its soothing aroma allowing any stress to disappear on the big day. From Finch & Thistle

“I wanted to keep the décor soft and simple to complement and not distract from the stunning setting of the Sequim lavender farm so I chose a color palette of sage green, white, lilac and a faded orange. To decorate the beautiful, rustic cake table I created a floral runner with a garland of seeded eucalyptus and worked in purple scabiosa, garden roses and lavender to add some color. I added antique English vinegar bottles and vintage lavender glass from my personal collection for texture and height and draped the runner into a Provencale market basket. The sweet lavender-lemon vegan cake by Kerissa Bakes was garnished simply with stems of fresh lavender on top of the rough white buttercream icing and displayed on a scalloped white cake platter.

I created several bridal bouquets for this shoot. Simple single arrangements of lavender and creeping oregano kept the look very simple and elegant and would be a perfect choice for bridesmaids or flower girls, whereas the bride’s bouquet was an organic mix of cream and faded orange garden roses, papery soft lilac scabiosa, sage, lavender and creeping oregano with purple nepeta (or catmint) and astilbe from my own garden. Some salmon berry leaves and seeded eucalyptus added texture.”
