With mint juleps, romantic fascinators and blush roses this Derby Days inspiration shoot from Blue Eyed Yonder is every bit the romantic dream! Ali Harper photographed this shoot at the historic wooden stables of Serenbe. With inspiration pulled from the Kentucky Derby this talented group of vendors decorated with trophy cups and tiny horse drink stirrers, while also incorporating lush greenery and flowers, keeping the shoot bright and natural. The color palette was kept soft and romantic with creamy blushes and neutrals, along with a pop of emerald green. Inspired by the tradition of the winner’s blanket given out each year, floral designer Lindsay Coletta created a lush blanket of over 1,000 blush roses. With this teams precision to detail and creativity this romantic inspiration shoot had me at first glance and I hope it inspires you for your wedding day!
