Two beautiful brides in a winter wedding wonderland
I am so ecstatic to have this beautiful winter wedding styled shoot featured on Equal & Forever’s blog this past week. This styled shoot was designed by Maureen Mika from Maureen Mika Events. Style. Image. Her vision for this shoot was to feature two beautiful brides in a winter wonderland, where all the design elements were an elegant mixture of white on white with a few hints of soft pastels. One day while snowshoeing in her neighborhood park she found the perfect location with a line of trees that she could make into an aisle for the brides. The floral and the cake designs carried on the white on white them with elegant details and small pops of colors with the pastel pinks and greens. I love the piped lace and edible flowers that Kelley Kakes used in her design.
I created custom designed invitations that featured a layered paper design with hand drawn graphics and feminine fonts. I added in a layer of white handmade paper to give the invitations a little more texture and elegance.
For the bridal attire, Maureen had the two ladies coordinate in alluring white gowns. However, she wanted each bride to have her own unique, artistic style. She chose dresses that had beautiful bead work and full skirts that added to the elegant, dreamlike theme. One bride wore a beautiful head wrap, while the other wore a delicate beaded headpiece and lace gloves.
My favorite images from this whole shoot were the sunset photos. I loved the golden light and the pink hues it cast on the mountains.
“In the constant fight for equal rights in marriage, love has always proved to be the ultimate power (even though judiciously, only recently). Congratulations on the victory! The group of vendors I work with are proud proponents of the LGBTQ community, and can’t wait to participate and share more of these magical moments!” – Maureen
