Celestial Tarot Wedding Style Shoot at Quail Haven Farm, Vista CA

Celestial Tarot Wedding Style Shoot Quail Haven Farm Vista 2018-148.jpg

This Celestial Tarot inspired shoot was all about the balance of light and dark. Just as in life or in love, nothing is all light or all dark. We wanted to show the magic of falling in love, the spell and wild feeling that love can cause within us all. I was absolutely inspired by the Tarot deck "The Wild Unknown" by Kim Krans.

Her deck says "Welcome to the Wild Unknown Tarot. You'll find no wrongs or rights in this deck, only mirrors of reflection. And that's what I really wanted to show in this shoot, the light and dark of a true and magical love. 

We kept the celestial magic theme in all the place settings with Tarot cards, and moon place cards. Our dark  plates balanced with our light candles. The Tarot cards all calling back to love and their future together being fated in the stars. Our seating charts, signage and invitation suite all call back to this theme. The dark with light always coming through.  

All the calligraphy items were hand made by Loren from Four Things Paper, and call back to the celestial theme of the shoot. 

Our flowers, with themes of the celestial in the deep reds, purples and blues, but again touches of lightness to keep things balanced. I particularly love the halo hoops above our table scape. If you practice magic or know anything about magic, a magic circle is a circle of space marked out by practitioners of many branches of ritual magic. Those who practice magic generally believe these circles will contain energy and form a sacred space, or will provide them a form of magical protection. Perfect for the bringing of two lives together as one. 

We spread the theme of magic, and the contrast of dark and light through out the shoot.  Our cake was dark and moody, like a stormy starry night but with touches of light. In the dark navy dripps where celestial sprinkles, calling back to the stars at the heart of our theme. 

And finally just a huge thank you to the team who pulled this together! It was an honor and a pleasure!
