An other-worldly wedding photoshoot inspired by the cosmos and crystals featuring a hand-made galaxy dyed veil and tie, raw crystal accents and some quirky accessories.
Photographer, Mary Slinger-Carreer, of We Choose the Moon Photography shared this unique, offbeat wedding inspiration photoshoot.
Mary: Our theme came to life after I found a DIY tutorial on how to dip dye a veil. I was amazed at how easy and stunning the veil was. Additionally, I thought it was a brilliant idea for brides who aren’t into all white to add some color to their bridal look. Around that same time, I stumbled across a tutorial on youtube on how to to tie-dye a shirt to look like a galaxy. I married the two ideas together and decided to tie-dye a galaxy veil.
I didn't want it to look like an outer space birthday party, so I decided to keep the galaxy patterns to a minimum; only the veil and the groom’s tie, but I carried the color palette throughout the rest of the inspiration. Iridescent finishes and raw crystals were the perfect complement to the galaxy inspiration, including iridescent flatware and champagne flutes with stoneware plates and raw crystals on the cake. I also specifically picked a very rocky location to give it a slightly more “other worldly” vibe.
