celebrating marriages with meticulous planning and impeccable style
For my Bohemian Luxe styled shoot with Amy Nicole Photography, we envisioned a luxurious approach to winter, set in a French mansion-style atmosphere. Design was largely interior-inspired, featuring some stunning pieces of ornate furniture and a long tablescape with mixed metal candlesticks of varying heights. When we found Riverwood Mansion, it was just perfect for the shoot. We had envisioned a room with a baroque-style gold mirror, and when we first visited Riverwood, the mirror above the fireplace couldn't have been more perfect. We also planned for understated florals with full, open blooms in jewel-tone hues that provided a beautiful contrast against a champagne satin linen and braided table runners. We decided to go for a simply elegant place setting with mix-matched silverware and metal goblets to throw in an eclectic feel amongst the luxurious table setting. The bar vignette featured Gatsby-esque drinkware and a "naked" cake topped with pomegranate seeds.
Our bride donned a beautiful Sarah Seven gown along with a delicate veil. She traded in the veil after the ceremony for a dainty gilded Twigs & Honey headpiece -- the perfect mix of bohemian and luxury. Her bridesmaid also wore Sarah Seven (a short gold sparkly number) and brought a little more glitz to the table.
This pink-and-red winter elopement shoot was loosely inspired by a childhood novel retelling the story of Beauty & the Beast. Instead of the traditional concept of a courthouse elopement, we strove to evoke a romantic outdoor setting for a wedding for two -- complete with marriage vows spoken over a glorious overlook, a first dance as husband and wife beneath string lights in a grove of cedars, as well as a dinner of cake and champagne. A Belle-inspired fuchsia bridal capelet also provides a pop of color against the natural woods and a beautiful alternative to the winter wedding fur stole or shawl. Bloomsbury Farm, located just South of Nashville, Tennessee, provided the perfect locale for an intimately sweet affair. Alyssa Joy Photography.
