A well-laid table and floral decoration, soft music and men in twine – this shooting makes clear that love and not the gender is all that counts.
Bright eyes and a sparkling smile, nervous hands and soft lips: classy weddings can – without a doubt – even make men´s hearts leap for joy…
There are only a few perfect inspirations for same-sex weddings like this by stylist Andrea Harper of Gray Harper Event Maker. Even for her it was a matter of the heart to create these inspirations as she revealed: I have been longing to do a same-sex wedding shoot highlighting masculine details and soft southern romantic touches for quite some time now, so when the opportunity to create a styled shoot presented itself we jumped at it!
With the photographers Justin and Amanda of The Happy Bloom the talented stylist added two more wonderful artists to her dedicated team who impress with sense for beauty and sure instinct for fine art. Here they let us sneak a peek into their overwhelming gallery of pictures. Enjoy!
The team was all about aesthetic elegance and unseen details combining different styles harmonically. Additionally, the stunning flower arrangements made by stylist Andrea ran like a golden thread through her great concept and gave some freshness to the scenery.
The tablescape had to be all things, modern, classic and also a little bit romance. We also wanted to work with a color palette you don’t see often in same-sex shoots and I think the metallics, grays, and pops of dark purple worked out perfectly and also matched the venue nicely! Leather was another element we wanted incorporated throughout – the leather bowties and leather bound guest book were all meant to be. And to top it all off the grooms suits really tied the entire look together.
