A Bohemian Bridesmaids Shoot Sure to Inspire Every Autumn Bride

Last fall, SMP had the divine pleasure of setting up shop in Nashville, Tennessee with a group of some of the best and brightest (and can we say sweetest) photographers around for The Process Workshop. And leading the pack? The unstoppable Julie Paisley. The amount of beauty that was captured there is hard to believe so we’re spending the next two days diving in – kicking it all off is Julie with her boho bridesmaids and some pretty funky, fabulous colors. See it all right this way (and stay tuned for more Process Workshop pretties to come)!

From Julie PaisleyThe initial excitement kicking off a bride’s wedding day is the joy of getting ready, and we think it should be especially memorable! Inspired by the fun and excitement shared by a bride and her best friends, the Cedarwood Weddings team designed a dream boho bridesmaids bash set in an outdoor living room with vintage airstream backdrop!

A vibrant color scheme of tangerine, burnt red, buttercup, and blackberry accented with romantic bohemian gowns were the perfect complement to rustic hipster décor. A drink station of blackberry bubbly, crushed berry compote and brie, and a funky leather ottoman lounge provided a playful location for free-spirited fun!

The bride rocked a Rue de Seine macramé gown and steal-worthy booties completed with a bright and bold flower crown and texture filled bouquet of roses, pin cushion proteas, ranunculus, scabiosa, sunflower centers, and greenery. Bridesmaids repeating the flower crowns wore dusty purple gowns from Bella Bridesmaids and carried bouquets of pin cushion proteas and mismatched hand dyed silk ribbon from Honey Silk & Co.

A paper suite by Designs in Paper, just as individual and trend setting, included custom watercolor design and rose gold foil inspired by the vibrant and funky floral combinations of the day.

From Julie PaisleyToni and Dennis didn’t want the normal NYC wedding. Even though they call it home, they knew they wanted something different. They decided on a Nashville destination wedding and I’m so glad they chose me for their wedding photographer.

Their wedding had the most perfect boho vibe. Toni’s Daughers of Simone dress set the mood and the styling by Cedarwood Weddings was on par. Their love of family and friends was evident all day and it was a joy to be their photographer. My favorite part of the day was the sunset pictures with the bride and groom. Toni loves the sun-lit images and I’m so thankful the sun made an appearance during their formals. My photographer heart was super happy!

How To Throw a Wedding with Sophisticated Southern Charm

If I had gotten married in the South, I would envision my day to look something like this… layered with elegance, charm, richness and intimacy. To me, that embodies everything a Southern wedding should be, and RO & Co. Events, Petal and Pine and Julie Paisley nailed it with this slice of inspiration. What’s your favorite detail? Let us know in the comments below!

From RO & Co. EventsAs a Los Angeles-focused wedding planner and designer for the past 6 years (formerly the co-owner/creative director at GATHER Events), I have gotten to know my LA turf rather well. As I step into my exciting new solo event planning and design venture, RO & Co. Events, I am focused on traveling outside my home base and partnering up with the greater special event community across the country. There is so much talent out there!

On a recent visit to Nashville, I was struck by the dynamic of this beautiful southern city—rich in history and tradition, but with a clear eye on modern sophistication. Half expecting to see a honky tonk on every corner, instead I found sleekly designed restaurants, gorgeous coffee houses and modern event venues that would rival any larger city.

Inspired by the contrast of the city, we created a modern, sophisticated take on southern charm. Julie Paisley Photography beautifully captured the aesthetic we were envisioning. With a focus on stark and sophisticated black and white, we added a hint of warm hues of blush and Potter’s Clay, one of Pantone’s hot colors for Fall. Metallic gold details were peppered throughout.

The Cordelle, built in the late 1800s, created the perfect backdrop for our shoot. Located in the heart of bustling Nashville, its exposed brick and 100 year old Hackberry trees tell the story of bygone days. 12th table’s eclectic modern furnishings bring the ceremony, dinner table and lounge spaces into an of-the-moment aesthetic.

Petal and Pine’s abundant textured arrangements feel fresh, organic and unfussy. The modern design and calligraphy of Hew + Co’s paper goods were punctuated with a curated collection of vintage stamps from Verde Studio.

Real-life couple Angela and Rico relived their wedding day as our models. Can’t you just feel the love between them? Our bride stunned in a beaded Bo and Luca gown provided by the incredible Nashville bridal boutique, The Dress Theory. Locks By Leslie created a natural but glamorous hair and makeup look. Rico dazzled in a sleek ensemble from The Black Tux.

Aperitif Events & Cocktails created gorgeous, colorful libations. This one (in the champagne coupe) is a recipe of light rum, lemon juice, rosewater thyme simple syrup, fig puree, muddled raspberry, cyan and egg whites. It’s a perfect fall color in the prettiest shade of pink. Cheers to Nashville!

From Julie Paisley It is always a joy when a planner contacts me to shoot an editorial, especially when it’s at one of my favorite venues in Nashville. I loved this shoot, being able to work with some of my favorite Nashville vendors and connecting with new ones is always a treat. I also loved working with our real couple, Angela and Rico they were amazing!
