We’re thrilled to be able to share this styled shoot created and captured by photographer Kati Mallory along Anne-Claire Allen Planning & Design and an amazing group of Arkansas wedding vendors. Read on to find out more about Kati’s inspirations for the shoot and see all of the images from this stunning set-up. It’s definitely a wedding we’d love to attend!
“Weddings have stayed in a more neutral color palette for awhile, so we wanted to inspire couples with a palette that was not-quite-summer and not-quite-fall, but rather the transitional period between the two.” —Kati Mallory, photographer
Kati explains that throughout the shoot, different elements were chosen to represent the seasons. “The blush three-toned cake represented summer, while the pecan pie bites were a nod to fall. Summery terra cotta vases lined the reception table with fall-inspired pear candles and thick velvet napkins nearby. Last but not least, the bride wore a gown with a feathery texture on top paired with a flowy chiffon skirt. The combination was perfect for the summer-meets-fall vibe of this inspirational shoot,” she says.
As a way to lighten the mood and show couples how much fun they can have on their wedding day, Kati and the team incorporated a lively approach with the bar using mismatched cans of rosé instead of more traditional drinks. “The varying graphic designs that the cans of rosé added to the shoot was perfect, and the unique way they fit into the overall color story was so fun,” Kati says.
For an added twist on drinks, Paper Supply Co. designed custom edible drink floats that matched the invitation branding. “It was such a unique risk and something we’d never seen done before!” said Kati.
“We wanted the shoot to portray joy that couples feel on their wedding day, so we incorporated real moments from a wedding, like cake cutting and toasts, to give our shoot energy and life. There was so much laughter in the room, you could feel the love!” —Kati Mallory, photographer
