What could be a sweeter inspiration for a wedding design than a poem? We love this soft and romantic shoot from Anzhelika Gekkelman Photography inspired by a poem by Alexander Pushkin. The classic pastel color palette of blush, peach, and cream is so dreamy. How amazing is the cake, inspired by the designs on the fireplace of the venue? Absolute perfection!
Inspired by a poem written by Alexander Pushkin, I designed this editorial to portray soft glances, elegant movements, and little breathless moments of romance. My father would recite bits and pieces of his poems when I was growing up and I felt a deeper connection to his poetry the older I became. This particular poem spoke of the first moment this woman appeared before this eyes, in enchanting light and leaving him in a daze. She disappears and he goes through a whirlwind of emotions of sorrow and pain. It ends with her reappearing and his heart becomes revived with love and light.
The details on the cake were meant to tie into the designs on the fireplace and ceiling of the Georgian Rooms at the Vancouver Club, the little table for the floral centerpiece also had the similar engraving to match the design. For the flowers I chose roses because what could be more classic than a rose. I ended the photoshoot it with a graceful dance – because how better can you showcase a joyous heart then with a dance!

We may be in the thick of winter, but we are living for this colorful shoot inspired by the warm Mediterranean sun! Heather K Cook Photography brought together an amazing team of vendors to inspire couples with this fresh color palette and organic vibe we just can’t help but love. Everything is effortlessly sophisticated with fun pops of whimsy in the citrus details and the floral print runner. And we’re pretty sure that fruit and nut topped drip cake is straight from our dreams!
I dream of traveling back to the Mediterranean Coast on a daily basis. The thing that I am most drawn to is their bold use of colors. Katie and I were inspired by the bold colors and wanted to show brides how they could use these colors for their Fall wedding!

We are big Jane Austen fans here on G&G, so couldn’t resist this sweet shoot inspired by Pride and Prejudice by ee photography! The soft pastel color palette is the perfect springtime wedding inspiration for any vintage lover. We love the bride’s loose updo á la Keira Knightley in the 2005 film adaptation, adding to the effortlessly romantic vibe. And those mini book cupcakes are beyond adorable! Such a cute detail!
The love of all things Jane Austen, vintage and romance sparked this wedding shoot. I mentioned the idea to the ladies at Southern Grace Design and Rentals and we partnered to make all of our Mr. and Mrs. Darcy dreams come true! Classic, timeless roses were the only option for this vintage shoot. We stayed with the soft, pale pink and ivory color palette. We personalized the bouquet with a vintage cameo and chiffon ribbon to create a bit of whimsy. The tablescape mixed timeless florals with vintage decor stacked on books. The china, linens and table cards (listed as chapters) all played into the Jane Austen, bookworm aesthetic.
