Ruby reds, bold golds and crisp whites, a class colour combination straight out of a fairytale! Today's romantic and elegant wedding inspiration shoot gives us a little inspiration from Photography by Shivani, from Oshawa, Ontario. This Creative Team used cultural fusion as their starting point, bringing two families and cultures together to create a cohesive look and feel for wedding design. Mixing a little bit of rental decor and a little bit of DIY, this is such a great example of how couples can fuse their handmade touches into an elegant wedding. When you're working with a set budget, selecting specific elements to rent and specific elements to create yourself can allow you to execute your vision.
For this styled shoot, you won't believe which items are something new and something old. The bride wears a consignment wedding gown, which goes to show that shopping strategically can still get you a fabulous, modern gown at a great price point. Using a public park as a setting for portraits allows the couple an elegant backdrop for their frame-worthy photos and using pre-made silk flower instead of real ones is not only a great way to stay on budget, they can be re-sold after your wedding. Kudos to this Creative Team for this inspired shoot - meet all of them after the jump!
