When we started collaborating on a shoot late last summer with Alisha Khan Photography and Tangerine Orchid, we decided the lake was a perfect way to express our Pocahontas-inspired love story. I had long dreamt of styling a tablescape IN the water...and both Alisha & Shannon (bless their adventuring little hearts) were on board with my crazy idea. The result was unique and magical. And I cannot wait to plan my own water-based dinner party in the near future! If Dinner in the Sky can launch people 50 meters above the earth to dine, I could certainly have a beach-side dinner party in a few inches of water!?
An Inspiration Shoot:
Our lovers envelope themselves in the elements of water and earth with a setting sun reflecting watery hues off the lake. As summer rolls gently into the warmth of Fall, a breeze whispers a golden light that wraps its glow on the world around them.
This tablescape is set with vintage lace, beach wood accents, and accessorized with leather, feathers, and Jadite details. The florals, bursting with late summer foiliage and blooms are adorned with raffia, feathers, and rustic, natural elements.
We dressed our models in simple beach-friendly neutrals and accessorized our Pocahontas with leather, wooden & turquoise jewelery and hand-crafted feather earrings.
