Matiana of Dang! Fine Rentals shares her inspiration, saying…
This shoot was a “Desert Elopement shoot.” It was an out of the box concept and we wanted to show how “We like to horse around and throw a good party” SO what better way to do that then to have horses and people dinning and partying with one another!
Horsing around with horses is not always easy. When I put this shoot together I created a shot list, ideal shots and photos to capture. But I knew I had to be flexible as our models had minds of there own and I couldn’t ensure their participation.
One of the first things I had on the vision board was a hand woven element and envisioned it made into horse blankets. I wanted pops of color, fun textures and a twist between woven and macrame style. So with that she got to work making the handmade woven horse blankets for the models.
Mulberry House created the laser cut signage of “We like to horse around and throw a good party”. Providing us with the elements to make our large hay statement wall! I mean “hay is for horses!”
Katie Grady the hand lettering goddess was given the wording for the signage, a color palette and a few photos and was told to design the signage as she saw fit! The colors, fonts and sketches fit the event perfectly! The fun wording totally stuck to the theme.
Florist Kate Mellow from Bloom & Blueprint is a creative genius and knocked the concept out of the park by using florals as well as fruits and veggies. She even created a veggie crown for a mini horse to wear! She was inspired by the concept to incorporate florals and food and turn it into a creative masterpiece. No celebration is ever complete without dessert! With that Jessica James from A Bakeshop created a hand woven masterpiece. This cake was a mix of weaving and macrame, and had so many magical elements.
I inspire all of our clients to create the event that fits them and there personality perfectly. We love crazy ideas, fun themes, and unique elements. The idea was to create a unique and out of the box playful romance. Bring in our four legged guests and completely Horse Around. Mission accomplished.
