A winter wedding inspiration shoot that’s equal parts glam, bohemian, and romantic is one that I simply can’t come across enough. Amy Nicole Photography, Kelly Dellinger Events, and Anne Whitson came together for this brilliant photo shoot with warm purple-pinks, gold, and plenty of bridal style.
From the photographer, Amy Nicole Photography: I recently did this inspiration shoot with an amazing team of vendors in the area and they helped my vision come together perfectly! We wanted to create a winter inspiration shoot, but with a bohemian twist. Laura at Southern Events had the brilliant idea of braided table runners, which we thought was a beautiful touch.
We envisioned a luxurious approach to winter 2013/2014, 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 floral design 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. The bridesmaid also wore Sarah Seven and brought a little more glitz to the table.
