Beautiful, bright and boho vibes with this destination sunflower wedding inspiration set in Black Hills in South Dakota. With laid back, intimate vibes, eclectic styling and off-the-shoulder lace wedding dress it ticks all the boxes for a beautiful boho day! Shoot coordinator Justin of Justin Straw Designs and the rest of the team tell us how this sunflower wedding was created…
Styling – Justin Straw Designs
“I was beyond excited when I noticed the beautiful field of sunflowers blooming. I thought this would be a beautiful location for a bridal photo shoot! I loved the idea of this boho inspired aesthetic. I knew I wanted to keep the sunflowers just to the background and incorporate textures and rich colors to achieve this look. While searching for table linen I decided that instead of the traditional table runner that I was going to use rugs! The texture was the perfect addition to this beautiful table.”
Photography – Indigo Blue Photography
“After the day is done your photos are going to be the lasting memories of your wedding day. Choosing the right photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make. Take the time to meet your photographer and get to know one another. Be sure to look at full wedding galleries not just a few photos. Finding a photographer who’s style you love, who you can communicate with, who you can laugh with and who you can trust is essential. Getting beautiful sunset photos likes these does not just happen. It takes talking to your photographer about what you want, working with them to plan your photography timeline, trusting them to know the light, choose the best places for photos and how to get the best photos of you. Finally be sure to print you photos. Get an album, hang them on the walls. Show them off! Your wedding day was incredible. Share it with everyone!”
Cake – Good Cake Witch
“When I started decorating this cake, I wanted to do something a little bit different. I wanted something Bohemian Rustic. So, I for sure wanted a tree bark look around the base of the cake. Then as I was cleaning up scraps of fondant I thought…”what would it look like with “peeling” bark?” Macrame is a trend that I think is coming back and I definitely wanted to add that in. The design for that part was inspired by a my tattoo actually. Succulents are such small and simple plants but when I added them to the cake they just made it all come together. Seeing the cake in the sunflower field at sunset brought the magic of this cake alive.”
Bridal – Davids Bridal Rapid City
“When I first heard the shoot would be in a field of sunflowers I immediately thought if this Galina gown. It’s unique but easy going look fit the bill perfectly. Simplicity was key for this boho bride, so I finished the look with a delicate flower crown and a soft suede nude heel to showcase the simple elegance of this gown.”
Florals – Becoming Bloom
“I love the look and feel of different textures in any arrangement and I used that inspiration to create this bouquet. It was a boho style shoot so I created an arrangement that was loose and romantic with a lot of different fall inspired colors and textures. For this bouquet I used a lot of greens and let them naturally cascade down. I also included ribbons that hung down at different lengths to create movement and line.”
