I love a bit of drama and this classic vintage bridal at Biltmore Village Inn beautifully embodies just that! Wanting to work with something a bit more sensual, the team opted for a boudoir come bridal portrait session captured by Audrey Goforth Photography, tucked into one of the stately rooms at the inn. Playing off the historic bed & breakfast interior, the a deep moody palette was brought to life centered around berry rich hued florals, styled by Flowers by Larry. In order to inject a fresh modern take on the vintage bridal style, a stunning bead work lace top wedding dress from Wildflower Bridal served as the centerpiece, a departure from the more common strapless gowns we see all too often. A long Rapunzel-couture inspired braid from Love, Daisy and classic red-lip look by Beauty by Carisse amped up the overall look and feel, while a watercolor calligraphy invitation suite from Long Village Studio & wedding cake from Tiffany's Baking Co. added soft feminine touches. The result is a timeless look that is every bit classic and vintage as it is modern!

The problem is that that particular mindset only truly appeals to a selection of bride, not everyone. I am delighted to be able to share a bridal session that features wonderfully moody bridal style that is inspired by a fairy tale with a bit of edge photographed by Magdalene Photography. This beauty is shoot on location at the secret garden like oasis of Flora Flowershop in Door County, Wisconsin. Featuring a voluminous Mori Lee wedding dress from I Do Bridal of sparkling tulle, our bride begins her journey in a gathered cathedral veil crafted to create a hair fascinator like effect. As the shoot progresses, our bride trades in her more formal veil for a wild and free organic floral crown. Her loose flowing locks and darker makeup by A&A Artistry, pick up on the more sultry dramatic cues, giving us relief from the more storied white weddings we see so often. This moody bridal session is a delight, something I know will appeal to all brides looking for an alternative to the standard weddings we see each day.
With a touch of french country provincial flair, today's gorgeously styled tablescapes are inspired by the unique linens and table runners from Candy Crush Shop. Playing with a mix of lace, sequin and linen runners, the team, lead by wedding event designer Petite Pomme Event Design, crafted three elegant table settings that embody a dreamy serenity blue & rose quartz wedding. Furniture, china, and vintage rentals in the form of an old trunk, wooden tables and mixed chairs from Trunks & Tales beautifully came together to create three distinct looks, each gorgeously classic and wonderfully chic. Whether its blue glass goblets or ceramic plates & cups filled with delicate blooms, there is something ever so perfect about each. Wedding florist Fringe Flower Company did a beautiful job crafting floral designs that complimented each table setting design using low centerpieces that drew out the beauty to a serenity blue & rose quartz wedding. To perfectly compliment the dreamy orchard setting, Batter Up Cakery put together the most gorgeously sophisticated 4 tier buttercream whipped wedding cake, accented by wisps of rosy watercolor...
