Chocolate & Gold Antique Book Inspired Styled Shoot

Warm, cozy and all kinds of pretty, today's fall inspiration has us feeling oh-so inspired! Because who doesn't love the idea of sitting down to read a good book with a warm cup of hot cocoa? So many creative wedding ideas by Simmi Floral & Event Design and thank goodness that Nina Milani Photography was there to capture it all. Because this shoot is a total must-see!

From the designer, "For this styled shoot we decided to combine two of our greatest loves: chocolate and old books."

"We chose Autumn especially for its warm colors that range from ocher to orange, from mossy greens and a multitude of browns."

"The locale we chose is Villa Corinna's amazing garden."

"To create the bouquet and floral decorations we did not want the typical flowers, so we went for berries, pine cones, cinnamon and little bundles of sticks we foraged in the woods..."

"...also leaves from the brown eucalyptus and golden berries every now and then to give that sparkle and remind us of chocolate paper and old books."

"We chose a woodland ceremony locale, under high trees and on top of a carpet of multicolor and golden leaves."

"Instead of using a typical floral decoration we chose to put ancient objects, books and little decorations on a vertical metal shelf."

"And the pralines in various shades of brown coordinated really well with the tones of old books, and with their covers slightly faded by time."

"The table we used was an old wooden desk, from the end of the 1800s..."

"We were looking for a natural and spontaneous feeling. We used golden plates as place mats and on top of the vintage ceramic plates we put the menu, decorated with an ecru lace."

"On the different shelves there were glass cake risers with chocolate pralines, little plates and cups filled with dragées, chocolate bars, marshmallows and candies and obviously more books."

"Also featured was a book as a ring holder, a chocolate filled little glass bottle as wedding favor... The seating assigments were made with reproductions from the La Fontaine tales."

"Every table corresponded to one of the tales so to allow the guests to read it and, why not, learn something new!"
