Milk and Honey Inspires Soft Linen and Rich Golden Details in Styled Couples Shoot

From Megan, the photographer:

“We aptly named this editorial “milk and honey” as we drew from the inspiration of these two substances. The soft, creamy textures of the linen and cream colored chairs for the milk, and the warm, golden hues of the florals for the honey.

Seeing these contrasting things come together, played out in every aspect of our design, from the softness of the linen to the abstract design of the florals on the tablescape; the structural backdrop to the curved seating at the ceremony; this contrast was even seen throughout our models – from their blonde and auburn hair to their ivory and copper attire. This theme ran through each element of the design.

Seeing how these colors and these two textures came together, created beautiful wedding inspiration that we wanted to showcase to couples seeking unique inspiration. Showing them that contrasting elements can work together, and how to mix up your design, allows them to envision their own unique personalities throughout their day. Each couple brings something different to the table, and when a wedding is being planned, their differences can be compromised, and become blurred. We aimed to show that these contrasting differences can be a good thing and that making your day your own, and continuing to show your personalities throughout the day, is important!

Hopefully, those viewing our editorial will understand our milk and honey references, both in the literal and non- literal sense. We are eager to see how future couples will continue to take this inspiration through to their own magical days.”
