Pacific Northwest photographer Irina Solovey proves that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication with this spare yet refined wedding shoot in Seattle. Organic around the edges, the eventscape is marked by bright whites, airy spaces, climbing greenery, and just a whisper of gold. “I’ve dreamed of putting together a minimalist styled shoot different from all the ones I’ve seen before,” Irina says. “I wanted to show brides that less is often more.”
To bring her vision to life, she selected a bevy of clean-lined gowns from Belle Bridal and turned to several of the region’s most talented wedding artisans, including Sarah Woods of Gathered Confections, which creates elegant and ethical custom desserts with locally sourced ingredients, and Vancouver-based calligrapher Julligraphy, whose lettering style is lighthearted and natural. Among the finishing touches were handmade veils from designer Zalikha “Ossai” Safdari, whose bridal looks draw inspiration from both her Afghan heritage and her childhood in California. “When the I received the veils, I almost died,” Irina says. “They were so delicate, so simple, and so beautiful. Every piece used in this shoot was perfection!”
