Today’s styled shoot was inspired by the beauty of a Pronovias wedding gown, which we think is a brilliant place to start. Add in heaps and heaps of greenery, and there’s just too much beauty to resist! Alexis June Weddings, Elizabeth Sloan Beauty, Ginger Rose, and J Elliott Style all did some wonderful work here:
From Alexis June Weddings and Elizabeth Sloan Beauty: The inspiration for this shoot started with the Narciso gown when we saw it walk down the runway at the Pronovias show at the NYC Bridal Market in October. We wanted to go outside of the usual rustic vibe of the venue and create – Industrial, Sexy, Pretty to show brides that you can do something different. We carried the Color of the Year, Greenery, throughout the entire shoot and starting with the reception look through the floral arrangements and tablescape.
La Gartier: The garter design that I provided for this shoot is called The Aurora garter– it was a perfect choice for this shoot as it is known for being glamourous while still classic and elegant. It is one of our sexiest designs but does not overpower a woman’s wedding day look. It has been worn by Atlanta Housewife Kandi Burruss as well as actress/singer Jamie Lynn Spears.
Ginger Rose: My Inspiration for this shoot was to embrace the natural occurring tones you see throughout the local area, and pulled the color palette from there. Colors like greens, browns, tans, and nudes were our driving force behind the designs. It was so fun as I was able to forage a lot of the greenery you see on the Hanging Greenery Backdrop, as well as the table centerpiece because I wanted to reflect some of Georgia’s natural landscape throughout our industrial and chic design style. When Jamie of Vinewood Plantation said that I could forage some of the Hellebores from the old plantation gardens to use for the cake design, I was more than thrilled! I love to use unexpected foliages and heirloom blooms in my arrangements, and with that being said, this shoot was a dream come true!
Elisa Anne Calligraphy: The bespoke invitations that I created for this shoot were inspired by the trend of greenery that has arrived for this wedding season! All of the elements (included my drawing of the Vinewood Plantation) were created and digitized specifically for this suite and printed on some of the finest handmade paper. I wanted the suite to be completely ethereal while also staying modern, trendy, and readable. Using white ink for calligraphy on dark envelopes has always been one of my favorite touches, and getting to utilize that combination for this suite was a dream come true! I am always on the look-out for brides who want to achieve a similar look and feel for their invitation suites!
Willow Star: I was so honored and excited when Brandi the photographer from Alexis June Weddings reached out and asked me to model and be apart of this amazing Industrial, Sexy and Pretty styled bridal. When I saw a picture of the dress, our location and the amazing vendors that were gonna take part I knew I had to be involved. Then when I put on the dress and stepped out onto Vine Wood Plantation it was like stepping into a fairy tale. Every detail from starting with hair and makeup, to the beading on the gown, flowers, stationery and even our perfect afternoon lighting turned our photo shoot into a dream that every bride would want to embody on their special day. So happy I got to be apart of such a classic, timeless and unforgettable day.
