golden yellow mountain elopement

After years of planning and shooting weddings, Courtney (of Courtney Elizabeth Media) and Christina (of Pinch Me Planning) hope brides will leave their comfort zones of blush florals and chiavari chairs and take a chance by embracing something bolder – something … yellow!

This styled shoot incorporated local vendors who were all in anticipation for Maine’s summer and inspired by the shoot’s sunshine-filled palette.

Mount Battie in Camden, Maine was the perfect backdrop for a ‘runaway bride’ to enjoy a rich charcuterie board and caramel glazed drip cake sweetened with kumquats. The bride’s golden skirt complemented the natural hues of the stone tower on top of the mountain and her feathered earrings provided the perfect punch of personality to juxtapose the simplicity of her ivory camisole top.

The marigold-colored florals complemented the pops of yellow throughout the gorgeous food display by Harvest Moon. Yellow Twist’s floral designs not only included a bouquet filled with Kangaroo Paw and Pincushion Protea, but also a sash for the bride to elevate her BHLDN two-piece ensemble!

This wedding inspiration shoot shows just how versatile a bold color like yellow can be when styled right.  Paired with antique golds and a soft ivory, it was inevitable that yellow would shine like the beauty of a color it is!
