You’ve got to love a lakeside wedding; all that fresh air, being outdoors at one with nature and the incredible waterside views, it certainly delivers a wildly romantic setting for saying “I Do”.
The talented team behind today’s styled shoot wanted to set a wedding scene that enhanced, rather than over took, their chosen lakeside lodge location. The beauty of exceptional wedding venues such as these is that they need less dressing and so when it comes to choosing your wedding pretty, be sure that is sympathetic to the surroundings and it will simply add flair to the existing scene without being overpowering.
So here’s Tana Photography to tell you more about this luxurious lakeside lodge wedding theme….
“Inspired by an iconic getaway, the Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho was the perfect background for this photo shoot. Sitting right on the Payette Lake and offering comfortable luxury, exceptional setting and an unbeatable view, this lakeside lodge adds a touch of upscale to any occasion.”
“The first inspiration was to create a look that really went along with the feel of the lodge itself. With floor to ceiling windows opening up to the views of the lake, a rustic rock-wall fireplace and a stately moose, our vision was to work with and enhance the environment rather than outshine the qualities of the room. We’re loving the long dining table trend both for looks and conversation, and ours was filled with a lush garland of flowers, candles, and delicate details spanning the length.”
“The sun setting over the lake is one of the most beautiful and anticipated sights at the lodge, so everything from our invitation suite to the peonies, roses, magnolia leaves and other foliage was reminiscent of sunset colors. A lace overlay topped a gorgeous greige table linen to create a neutral backdrop to allow the colors of the flowers to be the focal point, and the favor boxes with calligraphy place cards in grey ink kept the look classic and sophisticated.”
“The bride was styled in a timeless look with a deep rose lip to coordinate with the peonies and roses in her bouquet. We kept her hairstyle smooth and elegant and her dress in a beautiful lace style, with a stunning illusion neckline. The cute ring bearer is also styled in a classic outfit, with a nod to the lakeside feel in his straw fedora.”
“The docks of Shore Lodge are always a favorite photo opportunity- we took ours a step further by taking our couple out into the lake a bit for a gorgeous and hard to beat moment. The getaway – an old, yet touching tugboat filled with gifts – was the perfect finishing touch.”
