“HOPE HELMUTH PHOTOGRAPHY gathered a team of talented creatives together to create this floral-centric ode to to Paris. The historic HOTEL DU VILLAGE provided the European-inspired backdrop and A COTTAGE GARDENER accentuated it with a stunning sprawling garden climbing up the mint-kissed walls. A color palette of blush and cappuccino informed the design choices in the additional details like a luscious three tier cake adorned with ribbon and painted sweet pea by PARK AVE CAKE and paper goods by AUGUST AND OSCELIA.”
See our full story below:
Near my home in Bucks County is a gorgeous historic venue called Hotel du Village. It sits near the Delaware River in charming New Hope, PA. It is truly a European inspired oasis. I knew this would be the perfect place for my vision to come to life!
Our bridal suite was spilling with light. We began our day with a romantic boudoir look. Our beauty team really set the mood for this dreamy day. Makeup by Emily Dimant created an ethereal dewy glow. The iridescent palette was paired with fluttering faux mink lashes. Dawn from Luca and Luna Vintage styled our bride in a romantic 1930's slip. Ariel Katrina Hair transitioned the curls into an old-world inspired, half up-half down style. The look was completed with a velvet bow, inspired by recent red carpet looks.
Our bride wore a Hayley Paige design fit for a princess from local bridal shop, La Belle Mariee. We paired this look with chic chiffon Bella Belle wedding booties.
The cozy atmosphere is complimented by chic black and white tiling. Kim from a Cottage Gardener created the most beautiful sprawling garden up the mint kissed walls. I was so in love with the blush & cappuccino color palette we chose. Kim went running with the theme, adding a touch of flirty magenta and peach.
I knew I wanted a special cake with an artistic flair. Park Ave Cake created a luscious three tier cake adorned with ribbon and painted sweet pea. Our pastry artist also provided us with rose & pearl filled macaroons. Trust us when we say they where are scrumptious as they look!
We ended the day with an artisan inspired sweetheart table. The late afternoon glow created an ultra romantic ambiance. I truly adored capturing this day on film.
