Soft pastels, a touch of allure, and modern minimalism make for a stunning styled shoot, captured by Maria Azcona Photography and planned by Heather Benge Events.

Set in East Brunswick, New Jersey, this styled shoot is perfect inspiration for anyone longing for classic pastels with a modern understated appeal. Instead of bold or over the top hues pastels are paired with neutrals like gray, white, and classic wood floors for a subdued elegance.

Parquet wood floors, canvas chairs with gold trim, and sunlight warm the reception space. Golden candlesticks, clear and blue glasses, and peach and yellow rose bouquets exude soft elegance. The altar swaps out traditional features with a trailing vine of roses, and that same beautiful bouquet also graces a cart of drinks.

The bride and groom keep things naturally romantic, in modern but soft looks. The bride is truly stunning in soft, natural ringlets and minimal makeup. The wedding dress is alluring and daring, but stays true to the theme of soft romance with a plunging v neck and high slit. All over modern lace provides that needed soft touch. The groom opts for a fitted gray tux and navy tie.

A showstopper? The fondant cake, which features ombre pale blue and pink, topped with florals with artistic flourish.
