For this Winter inspiration, it all started with a dress. Backless, lace and insanely beautiful to be exact from Erin Grey Couture. From there, HART & CO. Events crafted a shoot layered in texture and bursting with lush blooms by Springvine Design. If you like lace or velvet or florals literally hanging from the heavens, then pop on over the the vault captured by Almond Leaf Studios for so much more.
From the planner… When Charlotte based bridal boutique owner and couture gown maker CJ Bostrom reached out to me about creating a wintery, romantic shoot in the Asheville mountains, I knew right away this was going to be something special! CJ created an amazing lace gown for her Erin Grey Couture line that is simply stunning and served as inspiration as I pulled together the rest of the design elements.
With hints of silver and gold woven in the gown, I incorporated a mix of the two metals throughout the table design. A gorgeous velvet linen from La Tavola created the perfect base, and allowed for those hints of silver and gold to stand out. I tried to keep everything else about the table simple yet classic and nothing that would take away from Springvine Design’s amazing hanging greenery and floral garland.
Springvine created a beautiful bouquet and we were lucky to have some Renee Pawlee jewelry plus beautiful rings from Trumpet & Horn to complete the bride’s look. For our groom, we decked him out in a classic black tux with a velvet bowtie from Men’s Wearhouse. The two are quite a dapper pair!
Engaged Asheville’s studio space gave us the perfect overall backdrop for our shoot. The clean white space and windows that let tons of natural light flow in was incredible.
Bohemian Ink created a beautiful invitation suite that was both romantic and whimsical. Jess is an incredibly talented artist in Charlotte and each piece she makes is really a work of art!
I always try to keep a look consistent and Wow Factor Cakes did just that by carrying the mix silver and gold into their cake design. The curves of the top tier were inspired by the gold curves of the chargers on the table. And they even brought in a lace pattern on the bottom layer of the cake that was similar to the pattern on the salad plates.
