La Dolce Vita
Don’t you love it when small ideas become big works of art? When talented artists become an unbeatable team? When delicate visions become reality?
With great attention to detail and sense for beauty and style wedding planner Franziska Beyer of MIT DIR UND MIR arranged this versatile editorial. The atmospheric images of Vivid Symphony take us on a beautiful journey of discovery into a fantastic world of inspiration.
Franziska tells: “The idea of the “Dolce Vita” shoot came to me during the location visit of the wonderful Lichtenwalde Castle and Park in the spring of 2020. No sooner had I entered the park, seen the very well-kept, Mediterranean-style grounds and the breathtaking view over the landscape, than the idea of an Italy shoot was born. Elegant, romantic, playful but also noble and chic it should be – and with the right vendors, which I had brought on board, this idea was also successfully implemented.
In terms of color, blue tones, especially dove blue, combined with gold, blush and green tones run through the concept. Anthuriums, delphinium (delphinium), English garden roses, hydrangeas and gladioli were the main floral players, perfectly blending them into the overall picture in terms of color and shape. However, olive branches, rosemary and various herbs must not be missing from a Dolce Vita shoot – they formed the green basis to make the floral stars shine. To soften the rich green a bit, eucalyptus was also used, which brought in the delicate blue-grey component.
The choice of the perfect bridal model was quickly made with Maria – her Mediterranean roots, beautiful and sensual face and dark, long hair reflected exactly the type of bride I wanted for this shoot. She was the perfect choice, which is easy to see from the stunning shots of her in our dream dress. The wedding dress, by the way, was love at first sight – at least at first with the bridal outfitter and when we all saw it on during the fitting, the choice was quickly made – classy, elegant, timeless and almost regal. This Aire Barcelona dress combines the royal elegance of Megan, with the touch of romance and playfulness in the form of the lace top with lace sleeves that this Italy shoot needed.
Our gorgeous Bridesmaids also complemented the scene perfectly in their bridesmaid dresses from Twobirds New York – in soft blue, of course, to round out the theme beautifully.”
