European Inspired Ruins Shoot
“Though the mountains fall away and the hills be shaken, My love shall never fall away from you" Isaiah 53:10
We created this European influenced ruins wedding inspiration, recently featured on Style Me Pretty, based on the strength and perpetual growth of true love. Despite the brokenness that surrounds us, we believe that when Christ is the center of your love, it will never fall away. And when couples have found that strength, they will find that their love will give them peace, strength, and growth.
Love brings peace
The couple began by exchanging vows under a birch arbor laden with soft fabric and olive branches, symbolic of peace. While for some, this is a time to rush through to get to the big celebration, we really cherish this special time! (This will be the time that I'm most likely to cry on your wedding day!)
Love is strong
We chose this stone farmstead ruins as a visual reminder that Christ is the strongest foundation for love. His love for us can't be shaken. Things come and go. But love never fades.
The place settings were chosen to reinforce the idea of love being our foundation, using marble slabs as chargers under simple and modern stoneware place settings.
The blue and green color palette was chosen with intention to reinforce the growth of love over all. We chose to feature floral design focused on lush greens that brought to mind growth and life. The buttery yellows and creams of the bouquet remind us of the friendship that grows with love over time.
May you be truly inspired to design a wedding that reflects your personality and belief in love.
