What do Victorian architecture and a successful modern marriage have in common?
Stable structures. Exquisite details. Longevity.
Mirroring Victorian architecture, couples build their relationship on a sturdy foundation, yet the beauty lies in fostering the small details. Marriage is made up of infinite micro-interactions and these moments add beauty to seemingly meaningless aspects of life.
Each wedding set in Moments has a distinctive, feminine elegance. The small details in Moments reveal inspiration from Victorian architecture: arched design lines and half- circle motifs that mimic entranceways and windows, asymmetry is drawn from the common asymmetrical façade. Smocking reiterates the Victorian roof’s shingles and lattice work while the sunburst motif is reflected in the pleats, circular yo-yos, and pintucks. Overall, the wedding sets in Moments represent the minute details of a loving relationship, much like a cared-for house represents a safe place that offers protection and stability, highlighting those moments that provide immense joy.
