Created and produced by Northern California wedding planner CHANDA DANIELS, this fine-art wedding editorial was inspired by Beyonce’s song, "Brown Skin Girl". Chanda tells us, "I wanted to create a beautiful editorial that honoured Brown Skin Girls at a time in history when they need to be honoured and celebrated. The setting was a stunning private estate in Woodside, California. In developing the creative direction of the shoot, I used the warm colours of the estate for our colour story. The surrounding grounds looked absolutely stunning during the sunset – so with that golden light in mind, we wanted our tablescapes to be rich and romantic with candles and dramatic floral pieces. All the other details including the stunning burgundy cake, beautiful cocktails and very detailed wedding stationery by wedding invitation designer ELSA MADELINE completed the look of this fine-art aesthetic which was captured by PATRICK QUEZADA. I selected a dress that was chic and classic and not overwhelming for the estate. To complete the look for our model, we went with a classic high fashion model glamour look." MAX GILL DESIGN created the most exquisite florals in fall tones whilst a cake in a rich plum shade by SAMANTHA MAYFAIR was a stand out detail.
