Inspired by Southern simplicity, Runway Events created a romantic photo shoot for The Hons to capture, filled with lovely lace details and vintage chic touches that can’t help but take you back to those days of yesteryear we hear so fondly of. See every inch of pretty in this gallery and don’t miss the film by Lasting Blueprint for a sneak peek of all the beauty that went down during the shoot itself.
From The Hons… This ‘Reverie in Lace’ 1940’s styled photo shoot showcased a refined Southern simplicity and we couldn’t be more excited to share it. A collaboration of vendors wanted to prove that simplicity can go a long way.
A Chair Affair rentals pushed down barriers to bring us a beautiful warm wood table and benches that we feel bring guests together and create a more intimate space. The rich wood helps break the minimal decorations on the walls and let’s the honest beauty of the venue shine through. Runway Events styled the shoot with beautiful peach roses, ivory cabbage roses, lush greenery and delicate babies breath. As a floral runner, the combination is a airy contrast to the warm wood table and blends beautifully with the antique floral China.
These refined choices offer a natural, austere ambiance without over doing it. Brides are always looking for gowns that can perfectly combine their ‘ever since I was a little girl’ dreams and the desires of the woman they have become. Modern Bridal accomplished all of that in this 1940’s inspired trumpet gown.
This backless Pronovia gown has intricate lace, delicate ruffled chiffon and gentle beading to add a touch of elegance. Paired with a fingertip scalloped veil to match the bead work, it completes this lush, romantic bride. Sometimes a dramatic makeup does just the trick, but the arcadian venue at The Acre called for a charming touch.
Shantell Tavarez, makeup, and Amanda Stone, hair, gave this homespun bride just enough Southern charm! A simple low bun with a side wisp of bangs adds femininity and won’t stress the bride out during the getting ready process. As you can see the warm blush to highlight a dramatic cheekbone and adds just enough drama to set the bride apart from the guests. Company Forty Two provided us with ethereal invitations that portrayed the rustic wood and delicacy of the South, without being too ostentatious.
Surely a wonderful prelude to the intimate nuptial guests are about to witness. To end the day, Soffelle Confections, added handcrafted sweetness in the form a of an nontraditional cake that reflected the bridal gown. Covered in ivory and cream fondant, the lace applications and string of pearls are perfect for this shoot.
We aimed to capture the elegance of the bride and the details. We used the natural light to hold on to the softness and warmth of Southern Charm that only a wedding day could hold.
