Blackberry Bliss | The Carolinas Magazine

bluebarn-blackberry-126

Don’t you just love their love?! When designing this shoot, we were so inspired by our grandmothers’ legacies and, of course, blackberries! We sprinkled lots of meaningful, nostalgic details throughout this editorial, along with plenty of blackberry details. This was my first editorial shoot in North Carolina after moving back here, and I am still so in love with all of the images and how well it pulled together with an amazing team. A huge thank you to The Carolinas Magazine for publishing this shoot on their website – we are so honored to see it featured!

I am loving the movement and color palette of this centerpiece from the insanely talented and kind Alana from Serendipity Designs, who has become a dear friend. Dahlias and ranunculus are two of my favorite blooms, and the centerpiece & bouquets were phenomenal – and so seasonally appropriate! She used so much texture, movements, and unexpected pops of color, and I was blown away when I saw the centerpiece for the first time.

This table setting is breathtaking, bold, ,and overflowing with a plethora of sentimental and organic touches. All of the bold, deep colors complement each other so well, and the fruits pair with it perfectly.

These might just be the prettiest bridesmaids around! I adore their complementary, mismatched gowns in dusty lavender and grey tones, the glamorous maid of honor gown, and the sweetest bouquets with flowing ribbons. These bridesmaids are so stunning, and they really brought this shoot to life!

And how lovely is this organic bridal bouquet?! I adore how a few perfectly placed blooms (and a berry lip!) pop amidst the greenery, and the dusty lavender ribbons really highlights the bouquet. Swooning!

I simply love their love… and her perfect bouquet with trailing ribbons… and how stylish these two are. It’s all around gorgeous and abounding in love!

Thank you to the incredible group of vendors who helped pull this one off…it was such a dream to meet so many talented ladies so quickly after moving to Raleigh, and I seriously adored working with each and every person involved!

Bridal Shower Soiree | Trendy Bride Magazine

BridalShower-170

There’s nothing better than your best girlfriends, especially when you’re styled in head to toe Anthropologie! I loved working with Mel in Chanel, the personal stylist at Anthropologie Raleigh, to pull together four killer outfits for our bride and her bridesmaids for this phenomenal bridal shower! Lots of pink, white, gold, and copper made up the soft and sweet palette for this editorial shoot. The whole day was pretty magical and the entire vendor team was truly phenomenal! We’re SO excited and honored to have our Valentine’s inspired bridal shower soirée featured on Trendy Bride Magazine!

Every bridal soirée should be as soft and sweet as this invitation by the uber talented Sage Paper Co.! We used a subtle “xoxo” theme throughout this shoot, along with fun pops of metallics, and this invite totally sets the stage!

And how adorable is this gift box filled with champagne, a succulent, a copper Moscow Mule cup, and the cutest heart-shaped sugar cookie? I know I want one!

This simple and sweet dessert bar from Randi at Sugar Euphoria is perfection for our bridal shower soirée! Mixed metals, blush, and lots of white make me very, very happy, and this two-tiered cake stole the show.

These raspberry macarons from Sugar Euphoria are so perfect in this brass Anthropologie container, don’t you think?! Like little jewels! I adore every detail of this Valentine’s inspired shoot, and macarons are my love language, for sure.

Goodness, these ladies are so amazing and beautiful inside and out!

Peach Editorial Shoot | Every Last Detail

SSE-119

Peach season is the best season, am I right?! Everything about this dreamy summer shoot makes me want to go back to this perfect day with the people who helped make it all come together. This was my first ever styled shoot almost exactly a year ago to the day, and I get the best kind of chills just thinking about it! Peaches and the sweetest real-life bride and groom, yes please! It is still such a special and meaningful shoot to me, and working alongside Ashton Kelley Photography is always the biggest joy. We loved seeing this shoot featured on Every Last Detail last week, and a huge thank you to them for sharing this editorial shoot!

I was so, so excited to finally be able to pull a styled shoot together, and I poured so much thought into every detail. This was the first ever centerpiece I made, overflowing with Juliet garden roses (my fave!), garden roses, and ranunculus. I was able to utilize gold & white china passed down from my great grandmothers, borrow gold flatware from a dear friend, use names of special significance when writing the calligraphy place cards, and incorporate peaches (I grew up in Georgia!) into the design, which made this shoot even more meaningful overall!

This shoot brings together classic Southern charm and personalized, meaningful touches that tell a beautiful love story. The romantic, timeless details are intertwined with the rich culture and traditions of the South. I wanted to bring my wedding brand to life through a styled shoot using details that evoke a classic, romantic feel with summer colors of peach, coral, and dusty blue.

And can we talk about this cake for a minute?? Delicate white ruffled tiers, intricate gold lace detailing, and topped off with a peach Juliet garden rose. Absolutely exquisite!

SSE-89

As a Georgia girl, peaches are the epitome of the quintessential Southern fruit, and this inspiration shoot was designed around peaches and the sweetness and vibrancy of a ripe peach! Magnolias, fresh peaches, family heirloom china, dripping candlesticks, and cocktails all meld together to inspire an effervescent celebration of love, an appreciation for the South and Southern hospitality, of family and traditions, and the start of a beautiful, sweet marriage.

I am more than a little in love with this image!! I love all of the Southern elegance of this gorgeous and oh so in love couple. They exude love in every way! From the lush orchard to the sweet Southern bride and groom to the cheery, light and bright bouquet bursting with my favorite blooms, these two were the perfect match to make this shoot come to life.

The bride and groom are close friends of mine and their love story really shines through, as they celebrate their “Oh Happy Day,” enjoy a beautiful gold lace and ruffled wedding cake with their guests, spend a quiet moment alone on the front porch soaking in the beauty of their wedding day, and toast to this celebration of their love and their future together. The Virginia countryside and peach orchard is the perfect setting for an iconic, sweet love like this one.
