Wedding days are often full of bright and blessed color — a fitting embodiment of the joy that day is sure to bring. Yet, every once in a while, we could do with just a little touch of romantic melancholy!
This gorgeous inspiration gleans stunning wistfulness from its scene and makes it manifest: a towering historical Spanish mission with walls that speak histories in their every flaw. Photographer, Basically Brandy, enlisted the talents of Coco Collective Weddings to breathe the space to new life. There, we find a table fit for romance, the sumptuous riches of fruit and bread, the lightest touch of a pensive blue. Colors gathered from the forlorn facades find themselves in dashes amongst the blooms of The Monarch Florists, a tribute to age and beauty alike! But, it isthe richness of deepest reds, the considered strikes of weighty black, that set this scene with masterful surrender — a sullen beauty, a touch of rain, an artful love story to awaken our hearts!
