From Chancey Charm Weddings... We had a lovely time working together on this shoot. It's one of those situations where you feel like you're throwing a party with close friends. Everyone working on this was completely committed to its success and had a positive attitude during the entire process, even day-of with 30 mph winds.

As a designer, I always take pride in sketching out fresh concepts for my inspired shoots and clients. I then take the vision I've sketched to other industry professionals for detail specifications and execution. I knew that I wanted to create a ceremony scene to highlight The Berkshire House's gorgeous backdrop of rolling hills, miles of dark brown fences and charming weathered barn. I came up with a romantic, vintage concept of an arch backdrop filled with ribbons for the bride and groom to recite their vows in front of. I presented the concept of the ribbon-laden arch to the amazing ladies at Stylish Stems, and they took off with it! They really brought the concept to life in a way I couldn't have dreamed of.  They incorporated lace into the arch, which we coordinated with the dress and overlay on the cake table that I personally picked out at Lewis and Sheron Textile Co. in Atlanta. Stylish Stems suggested that we bring in a chandelier over the cake table. I instantly feel in love with the idea. Event Rentals Unlimited was more than happy to provide rentals for the shoot, and the ladies at Vintage Vogue Event Rentals provided a gorgeous mercury glass cake stand for the ruffled cake, lovingly made by Eileen Carter of Eileen Carter Creations. The handmade details of custom-made earrings and a bow tie that coordinated with the ribbon sealed the feel for an adorable couple, who graciously provided us with their evening. Gisele of Happy Kiss Photography brought the shoot to life with unique angles and images full of detail and romance.
