There’s just no place more romantic than estate grounds for a wedding, don’t you think? The incredible team behind today’s shoot, including J.Ashley Photography, Southern Flair Events, Evermore Weddings and Events, and Virtu Floral Design, sure think so, and we have to agree. The show-stopper of this styled shoot has to be the floral and greenery table runner, which makes the perfect statement piece for a garden inspired wedding no matter the location.
From the photographer, J.Ashley Photography: This styled shoot was inspired by the romance and timeless elegance of the South. This was a collaborative effort of some of the most talented vendors in Atlanta to design and create an ultra romantic experience that would truly showcase southern sophistication. We chose a color palette of gold and marsala with hints of blush and light pink to give contrast and variation to the overall color scheme.
A custom made farm table nestled in a grove of picturesque Oak trees was the focal point of the shoot. A lush garland comprised of varying types of eucalyptus, red oak, Tree ivy, olive and camellia graced the center of the table and flowed onto the ground. This foliage was combined with a mix of both black and peach dahlias, a variety of gorgeous open garden roses, along with seasonal pink snowberry, burgundy snapdragons and a combination of fresh plums, pears and other seasonal fruits were placed among the table to inject texture as well as additional color.
Vintage brass candelabras were mixed with gold rimmed stemware, flatware and china for a stately and elegant effect along with hand-painted round gold menus at the center of every place setting. The centerpiece of this opulent estate table was a magnificent 5 tiered cake with a ruffled rose pattern of hand-crafted gumpaste flowers highlighted with edible gold details. The signature drink featured was a Thyme Infused Blackberry Martini that added the perfect pop of color on the tables. Crossback vineyard chairs were adorned with “Mr. & Mrs.” hand-painted vintage mirrors to add in a reflective element.The bride wore a gorgeous Elizabeth Fillmore “Thalia” dress with a modern face veil from Fabulous Frocks of Atlanta. We accented the dress with natural eye makeup and a marsala lip to complement her flowers. She carried a beautiful bouquet of a softer cream and peach palette, accented with deep berry tones and comprised of a mix of peach amaryllis, oversized dahlias and blush peach roses, accented with South African blushing bride protea, scabiosa, nigella, pink snowberry, safari sunset leucadendron and bits of red oak, seeded eucalyptus and tree ivy.
