TheÂ New Age flair for this styled shoot takes its inspiration from a gorgeous pink mineral: rose quartz, as well as Himalayan pink salt. Paired with succulents, local botanicals andÂ geometric shapes the adorable tiny chapel at Cactus Joe’s Blue Diamond Nursery takes on a modern feel.
You’ll findÂ many wonderful ideas to take away fromÂ this postÂ including boutonnieres made of minerals, eco-friendly favors and the subtle southwestern styling with a touch of vintage glam.
More from the stylist, Amy, of Design in Mind Events:Â
With the popularity of Himalayan salt rocks appearing in cooking recipes as well as home decor, it was a wonderful opportunity to implement the natural mineral source in a wedding setting.The soft luminescent glow of peach and pink from the rocks exemplifies the mood of a desert sunset. With the color palette of pink, peach, champagne and gold, we wanted to incorporate the adorable pink chapel located on the premises! Simple rentals such as champagne linens, gold flatware and pink depression glass adds a pop of romance to the natural desert setting.
To minimize the wedding-carbon-footprint, blooming cacti were placed in rose quartz votive rocks and only a few sprigs of blooms were used to enhance the centerpieces. For the ceremony decor, various sizes of Himalayan salt rocks and succulents were used to line the aisle while strands of rose quartz were used as a backdrop.
When purchasing decor for the big day, keep in mind of how it can be used once the wedding is over. For instance, the salt rocks can be gifted to your bridal party and family members who helped with the wedding. The salt rock lamp can be used inside the home or you can remove the cord and bulb for outside use on the patio or garden.
Besides the DIY rose quartz curtainÂ used asÂ the ceremony backdrop, other DIY elements showcased in the shoot were the rose quartz bridal hair piece, the groomâ€™s rose quartz boutonniere and rose quartz place setting wrap for the sweetheart table. We hope this shoot ignites some fresh ideas for those who are looking to plan either a desert, southwestern, eco-friendly, DIY, or just a simply pink palette themed wedding.
