1. Glam Take On Midsummer Nights Dream Wedding In The Gardens of Bartow Pell Mansion

    Gorgeous, girly and filled with greens, this inspiration session in the gardens of Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum is aces! Taking a cue for Midsummer Nights Dream, Branham Perceptions Photography & House of Flores worked to create a daytime world filled with romantic glam & classic elegance. Working with a palette of coral & ivory along with flexes of gold, the table in the gardens gives a rather found ethereal sense. Organic & lush, the table decor is hallmarked by a moss bed runner which is filled with viney twigs, pops of bright flowers in pinks & bright greens, perfectly positioned in nob glass mini vases & pewter cups. Gold twig flatware complete the garden touch, while elements like elegant gold rimmed plates with round menu & matching pink draped napkins greet the guest. The overall effect is that of a romantic wonderland among a lush earthy secret spot which certainly says secret garden to me!

  2. Eclectic Griffis Sculpture Park Picniclike Offbeat Wedding Among The Art

    Raise your hand if, like me, you politely stalk your favorite shutterbugs peeping in on all the gorgeous eye candy that they capture! One such Storyboard favorite is North Carolina wedding photographer Carolyn Scott Photography. Not terribly long ago they posted a sneak peek photo of Eleanor Cook & Geoff Franks's amazing wedding at Griffis Sculpture Park. One pic, thats all it took, and I knew! I immediately reached out to Carolyn Scott proclaiming my desire to feature the wedding and in just a few short moments, you'll easily know why! Believe it or not, the one photograph that I saw was simply a couple portrait, I had no idea the type of wedding that they had or any of the details and let me tell, I am beyond thrilled to share this gem with you! Ellie & Geoff, under the guise of putting together an eclectic picnic, crafted one of the more eloquent & certainly unique weddings I have seen in sometime. Using their own likes, loves and interests as their inspiration source, bouquets & centerpieces were not made of flowers but balls of yarn, paper flowers & buttons, all relating back to Ellie's love of knitting! Colors for the wedding were inspired by those available in the BMW M series, thereby creating a vibrant world of mixed powerful hues in red, purple, and light blue! The ceremony was located on a gently rolling hill within the sculpture park, surrounded by gorgeous art, were guests sat on hay bales covered in Mexican blankets while pom-pom garlands & strung roses swayed in the summer breeze! Ellie & Geoff themselves were gorgeous on the day, Ellie wearing a truly captivating free flowing Sue Wong gown {which her mother altered down 3-6 inches! Looks amazing mom!!} while Geoff kept things hipster fresh in a smart mix matched ensemble. Ellie & Geoff's uniqueness is their attraction and I can not get enough of how wonderfully they crafted their wedding, truly making it their own and how perfectly creative that they were in achieving it!

  3. Preppy Country Club Wedding Gets Turned Up A Notch In Navy And Spring Greens With Butter Yellow Accents

    Country club preppy gets a bit of a make over today, making things modern & fresh while being injected with sharp navy & crisp citrus tones and a vintage nod! The plan was to create a more modern world, with clean lines and delicate styling that would infuse the day with the energy and spirit of a more youthful whimsy. Touches like sliced limes playfully popped in and out of the florals while sweet vintage elements like pale green cookies, vintage lollipops & sodas even the bride's Breakfast At Tiffany's inspired updo give the perfect in trend retro feel. Why have just one flower girl & ring bearer when you can have 2 of each! The children are real stars, utterly adorable in their perfect preppy dress not to mention their youthful exuberance! The final piece was to take the party out of the country club quite literally, stepping out from the typical indoor setting, to under the swaying arms of the giant trees. Dining al fresco, the team was able to capture that country club feel without the stuffy indoor setting, setting the table with gorgeous gold chiavari chairs, deep blue plates, and the perfect short centerpieces. Bands of stripes run throughout the design, tying everything together as well as injecting the perfect amount of stylish whimsy from the seat cushions and lollis to the cake bands & bow ties! I love the citrus touches, both literally as well as in color palette, and the simple act of moving things outdoors, frees up that old country club mentality and making it something new and fresh!
