Some days we come across photos and designs that are so beautiful – we literally have to pinch ourselves to believe how lucky we are to do what we do everyday… today is one of those days. This inspiration shoot from Charla Storey Photography, with design by Chic & Pretty Events and floral by Wedfully Yours, has completely stolen our hearts. The artistic contrast between the bright, white barn against the romantic floral of warm hues is soooo stunning. The bride’s natural makeup look and blush Carola Hannah dress are a heavenly pair. Keep reading ‘till the end to see the most creative cake design EVER. We just can’t rave about this one enough, guys!
This shoot was a marriage of soft and gritty textures with a bit of moody romantic influence. White Sparrow is a stunning all-white barn with lots of natural light pouring through the windows. It was the perfect canvas for a monochromatic palette with contrast.
Charla Storey always has the most beautiful shoots, so we wanted her and the attendees to have a variety to capture. The tablescape had a variety of surfaces from the velvet covering and vellum menus to the stone treated pillar candles and charcoal flatware.
Many of us in this team have worked weddings at the White Sparrow but one of its new exciting aspects is the charming glass greenhouse surrounded by a field of lavender that recently opened up. We designed a suspension piece inside it that had an overgrown feel to it paired with a floor install having the same effect.
Linda from Wedfully Yours Floral did a stellar job and it turned out perfectly. Nestling a chair in the center for our bride was the most magical setting. She had a Carol Hannah blush colored bodice, skirt and veil that illuminated in that greenhouse.
A fun aspect of event designing is having interchangeable pieces that can double as another function. You’ve seen it before with ceremony backdrops doubling as head table backdrops. We took the centerpieces from the tablescape and created an entirely new portrait setting with a solid backdrop. Everyone loved how it turned out and we couldn’t have been happier with this collaboration.
