Fresh Rustic Romance
Maya Devassy Tarach, owner of Preoccupied Bride, shares her vision for the shoot.
I wanted to have a styled shoot at a unique venue whose primary role was to not host weddings but certainly could. I visited a variety of venues, including museums, park districts and more, but the moment I saw the bocci ball courts private event space at Pinstripes Northbrook, I knew that was the space I wanted to host my shoot. It was gorgeous, both rustic & chic, and an indoor space with the benefits of feeling outdoors. The wood beams, strung lights and floor-to-ceiling glass garage windows that open up to an outdoor patio inspired me to do a natural and cheerful color palette of shades of yellow, green, white and brown. I’m a huge fan of yellow and lemons (as strange as that may sound), and I wanted the design to be bright, earthy and classy. That color palette, along with a lemon theme, was my vision for a fresh spring or summer wedding, and Fresh Rustic Romance was born!
The Words That Shape Us
Owner of Lillian Rose Events
Shares her vision for the shoot.
In early 2018, I did a consultation with the sweetest couple who had a vision for their wedding where they merged their love of literature and the city where they fell in love, Paris, in the details of their wedding. Their anchoring phrase: The Words That Shape Us. Ultimately, we didn’t end up working together, but our conversation and their love story left me so charged with vision that I knew I had to get it out somehow. Over a year later, I had the opportunity to partner up with a group of ridiculously talented creative partners for the Designer’s Challenge & I knew it was time to execute this dream. As you can imagine, over 18 months, I had the space to really get to know this fictional couple I was designing this shoot around. This couple was backpacking through Europe with their best friends & after an electric night in Paris, they found themselves hand in hand in a field of Tulips at dawn committing to spend their lives together. After exchanging their vows, they went to a local cafe to celebrate.
