Love. Its often described through certain colors, certain flowery descriptors. The truth is, love doesnt fit into one perfect box. Love is also deep, dark, mysterious, brooding, angry, fierce, tormented and often wildly intense. While today is surely to be filled with stereotypical interpretations, I offer a version of the moody side in the form of The Gather Workshop. A collection of Michigan's wedding pros got together to create a unique and thoughtful styled shoot that is a gorgeous marriage of rustic winter meets harvest wedding. Working with the stark and bare world that fills our field of vision in the winter months, the team brought life to the harvest wedding by utilizing a bounty of earthly goods. Fresh elements like ornamental and real cabbages, artichokes, carrots, peppers, apples and so much more appear in places like bouquets and table settings. From a wedding fashion standpoint, the dress is boho chic, accented by the lush and overflowing floral crown, a harvest wedding must. Our bride's winter wrap and antler detailing are reminders of season, while a table nestled between the evergreen's provides the perfect amount of green to take our minds into a warmer place. This moody interpretation honors the intense side of love, all of its good, all of its difficult pieces, all of the moments in-between. In a sea of bright pink and cheery red, I hope this darker more honest version resonates with you. With that said, be ready to steal your favorite pieces, there are all kinds of wedding style goodness in here.
