"In creating and producing this shoot, we wanted to give brides (and all those planning events) a fun, bright, and whimsical inspiration. We wanted a color combo that was exciting and new; something that would spark inspiration, so we incorporated lots of bright and neon colors. The ceremony and reception took place in a barn. We wanted to show that you can do electric colors in a rustic venue. We love that contrast.
We included some DIY elements that anyone can do like spray painting gold candlesticks, painting the rims of water glasses, and creating those fun piñatas. Those were easier said than done, but the final project was worth it!
The storyline of this shoot follows a bride and groom who have a bright, rustic ceremony full of emotion and love, and then have a blast at their reception. The bride changes into a fun, flirty cocktail dress and lets her hair down, and the pair of them enjoy the afternoon drinking lemonade, eating cotton candy, and playing with piñatas!
This shoot was made all the more sweet because we used real couple Maddy and Tim, who actually celebrated their one year wedding anniversary the weekend before the shoot. You can certainly see the real love and tenderness radiating from them in the photos, and it’s so wonderful to have that celebration mirrored in all the details.." - Ashley Holden Rasco
