Autumnal Inspiration featured on 100 Layer Cake

I've had the great fortune of meeting and collaborating with so many creative women this year, and for this shoot, I worked with some truly fabulous ladies that have completely impressed me with their style, ingenuity, and savvy approach to everything: Lindsey of Lindsey Zamora Wedding Styling + Design and Maxine of The Southern Table. Lindsey concepted, designed and styled this fresh and contemporary autumnal shoot with a yummy plum and espresso color palette in mind. I admit that I have never been too keen on the color purple, but baking has really made me appreciate some of its softer and richer hues; I love the clean smell that working with lavender washes over everything, and the brilliant burst of fuschia when fresh blackberries mix into buttercream is one of those giddy color happenings where you see moments moving through frames. That said, oftentimes requests for purple aren't the kind that come across as natural, and very rarely "autumnal" and "fresh". But Lindsey, with her ah-maze-ing eye pulled it off big time here, pulling together gorgeous woods, unexpected vessels, lush leaves and warm light. I love how The Southern Table incorporated lush magnolia wreathes into all sorts of details from the tablescape, to wrapping the neck of a beautiful horse to adorning the front of our cake. So excited to share these beautiful images from Becca Lea Photography, and proud to have the work featured on 100 Layer Cake this Fall. These concepts have a look that is both timeless and classic, while very fresh, natural and intimate. Can't you just imagine sharing beautiful moments with friends, glasses full of wine, laughing underneath trees strung with lights? I do.
