Back in April of last year we, the blue group, started brainstorming our shoot with all of the ideas that came up, we knew that we wanted something authentic and homegrown. We took “blue” to mean the one out of the bunch that was different. The black sheep if you will. So, we envisioned a couple who do things differently. This couple doesn’t plan a year in advance. They aren’t getting married in the church. They aren’t wearing white. Gasp! This couple told their friends and family to come to a party that week “dressed in blue” and bring a small dish to share.
Once their friends and family showed up for a leisurely afternoon at their blue kolonihave, the couple announced that they were actually getting married and they were the guests. The garden turned into the reception site with a simple bunting in blue strung along the bushes to frame the couple as they said their vows. Instead of a wedding cake, a friend made a piñata in shades of blue. Once they knocked it down, fortune cookies with personalized fortunes came spewing out as favors fo the guests.
Later that evening, the guests gathered in the kolonihave for a dinner made up of the smørrebrød that everyone brought. Friends had decorated the place in old wedding veils from their family’s generations. They enjoyed the occasion with simple hygge and cherished their new bond.
This simple wedding brought out the best in the couple and made it an easy affair for all. By sticking with just one color palette, they were able to focus on the people that they shared the event with.
The dresses: The first dress from Elefteria.dk is model Anna with denim skirt, perfectly morning outfit for a wedding. The long length model Eleni, a bias cut dress in crepe de chine so soft to wear in the late afternoon and finally decorated and dressed up for the evening dinner with silk chiffon covers to give you the upportunity to change the look of the dress for any occasion. All of them made specially for the Something Blue shoot, by Anja from Elefteria.
The crown paper flower, the Piñata, and all the paper craft is made by Brittany from The House That Lars Build. Brittany also did the beautiful table decorations.
I hope you liked it, and that it will inspire you in one way or the other for your wedding, party or just having a good time!
