Wed Me Wednesday : Marsala Photo Shoot

Welcome to the wonderful Wed Me Wednesday! We spotted this gem on Junebug Weddings and thought we’d re-post it because it was just so good! Enjoy the stunning ode to color of the year marsala:

From Junebug Weddings:

In case you haven’t heard, 2015 is all about Marsala, a color you can find everywhere from New York Fashion Week to interior design inspiration. When we saw this Marsala wedding styled shoot from Valorie Darling Photography, we knew it would be the perfect source of inspiration for fashion-forward couples tying the knot in 2015. The Barrister Winery was the perfect Pacific Northwest venue for the shoot, with its dark wood elements and, of course, the wine! Event planner and designer Andrea Leslie‘s vision was carried out in every detail, from invitations to tablescape to cakes.

Here’s what the experts behind the shoot had to say about their inspiration:

We were inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest in the winter. We included many textures in the florals, paper products, linens, attire and venue that were meant to represent the Evergreen State: the mountains (in the calligraphy font), raw nature elements (wood paneling, escort card branch and lush greenery), as well as wine (Washington state is the new Napa! So having the setting be in a winery was fitting).

For the tablescape, our theme was prevalent with the bold textured metal backdrop. It set the stage for the beautiful pops of metallics in the candles, silverware (or should I say “gold ware”) and sprinkled, rimmed chargers. The centerpiece was organic and free flowing down the table to capture the feeling of a woodsy feast. The place settings were a combination of vintage, cut-crystal and ruby glassware to give hints of the rich color palate as well as that metallic pop with the gold-leafed menus.

As for the cake, we loved the look of naked cakes because of the simplicity and rawness of the cake. The technique used to frost the inner layers creates somewhat of a dusted snow look, which played into our winter vibe. We were spoiled with more than one cake and Batch Bakeshop also created a painted cake with images of grapes and vines for the winery venue. The smooth texture and beautiful paint on the middle cake was perfectly complimented with the naked cakes that had accents of pomegranate berries and sage leaves.
