Today we’re sharing with you one of the most chaotic and gorgeous photoshoots! A talented team created the perfect scene for a unique shoot like this one. They chose an incredible historical fort in Casco Bay, the “Fort Gorges” which was extremely impressive, and it could only be accessed with caution. A small wooden table with orange candles, garlands with hot pink bougainvillea, glasses of wine and fruits was set in the middle of a stone room. A seductive figure was wearing two masterpieces in beige and white color with loose, comfortable fabrics. Her braids, her boho style and the different, colorful flowers matched perfectly with the concept of this shoot. See every single pretty detail through the following images by Emily Delamater Photography!
From Emily Delamater Photography: “The idea behind this shoot came from a love of the chaos in the unkempt. Many things in the wedding industry tend towards a seeking of perfection and order and we really wanted to explore the other side of that coin. So was born “A Beautiful Mess” a smashed cake on the ground, lipstick on a wine glass, messy hair and wind and salt water, food strewn about, unruly and un-bounding. We chose this incredible historical fort in Casco Bay called Fort Gorges, which can only be accessed at high tide and still with caution. It is like a stone fortress rising out of the water, and seems to exist in a time all it’s own. A circle of arched walls with a large open field in the center, we loved that nature seemed to have half taken over the space. Vines grow on the walls and creep into the exterior rooms. We wanted to work with the space instead of against – embracing and adding to the beauty of the mess instead of avoiding it.”
From Field Floral Studio: “I loved the chance to honor the bacchanal through overflowing, unrefined, and novel florals in this high-summer photo shoot. The super saturated palette of deep reds and pinks recalled spilled wine, lipstick kisses, cake smears, and cracked-open lobsters. I was able to forage onsite for the pink and green foliage in the bridal bouquet and ceremony site to help anchor the goddess bride model to the tiny island location. These are definitely florals for the young, wild, and free. Deep red and black dahlias were the mainstays of the bridal bouquet accented with bee balm, pieris, garden roses, coleus, and heaps of hot pink bougainvillea.”
