We love a classic baby pink and baby blue color scheme but this photo shoot is, quite frankly, out of this world! We’re excited to share our “Love You to the Moon and Back” astrology-inspired photo shoot from our new issue.

The print layout is featured below, but be on the lookout for extra photos, a behind the scenes video, and an interview with our real couple models in the coming months. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram and Pinterest so you never miss a post!

This shoot had a few levels of inspiration for me. My company, Epic Thyme Events & Design, specializes in boho chic weddings and it is not often that I work with colors like soft pinks and baby blues. I mostly work with earthy tones such as dark burgundy, deep greens and browns. Therefore I wanted to show myself that this adventurer style can also work in a spring color palette. During this time, I started to notice that I was living this boho style not only in my company but in my life. My posts started talking about astrological aspects and aligning with our horoscopes. So one night while I was drifting to sleep I thought, I want to create a wedding theme that aligns with astrology! The table numbers will be the zodiac signs, the save-the-dates will be star-finders, the desserts will show the phases of the moon and the bride will have vibes of a powerful angel! I wanted to make sure I used colors that portrayed the feeling of light and airy and would also take me outside my comfort zone. All this inspiration led me to design this shoot and I hope you enjoy it!
