From Frances Harjeet the owner of Prema Style: The spark of inspiration for this styled shoot came out of recognition and celebration of the natural elements that compose our lives: earth, air, fire, and water. The harmonious and creative union of these forces is around us all thetime. Just like in a marriage, we are sustained in the balance point of these interactions, ebbing and flowing with the changing seasons.
We drew our palette from the Colorado hills and the colorsreflected upon them in the waning light of a midsummer’s evening. A range of soft hues: periwinkle, lavender, butter yellow, sky blue, grassy greens with rich midnight blue and brass accents.
Our bride carried a presentation bouquet of tall columnar flowers and locally grown iris wrapped with dandelion-dyed silk and adorned with a vintage pin made from a blue butterfly wing.
Quintessential Colorado flowers were incorporated to ground the images to a sense of place: lupine, columbine, foxglove, delphinium, sage, flax, wild roses, scabiosa and local grasses.
Natural quartz crystal, amethyst and geodes on the table, the linen napkins and in the bride’s hair remind us of the beauty that resides in the earth below our feet. Real preserved butterflies adorn the tablescape hinting at the rich array of life stirring in these hills and plains.
