The beautiful thing about putting together a styled shoot is that the world is literally your oyster. Dream it up and execute, that is all that is required to make a bit of magic. Such is the case of the skillful crew of Virginia wedding vendors that came together to craft not one but two dreamy wedding looks, showcasing gorgeous inspiration for a unique plantation wedding. Set at the Historic Berkeley Plantation along the James River, the lush background of perfectly trimmed hedges & pebble lined red brick mansion served as the perfect jump off point for the team. A sweets table was erected with a chic botanical mother earth feel, from the texture whipped wedding cake topped with succulents to the garden rose accented garland of green. To inject two different perspectives into a plantation wedding, a duo of looks were crafted for the bride from a modern gone slightly boho feel to one of more fashion forward fashionista spirited bride donning a sweetheart ruffled wedding dress featuring a pink ombre dip dyed finish. Each bridal look is a beautiful take on a plantation wedding bride, each a departure from the expected over sized southern like belle of the ball-gown. While I am all for the spirit of boho, I can stop crushing on that dip dyed wedding gown, a statement wedding dress for sure!
