Wilmington Wedding Editorial Featured in Trendy Bride Magazine (print)
We wanted to create a wedding that was perfect. We wanted to capture the emotions and feelings of a wedding day in a way that isn’t always possible on a real wedding day. We wanted the advantages of an editorial shoot without sacrificing many of the important wedding “scenes”. To pull this off, convincingly, we needed to collaborate with an amazing group of wedding professionals.
We have a great working relationship with so many of the talented folks working on the “Grand Oaks” shoot and, at it’s nucleus, the talented Design Perfection and Lily Belles Events team. After numerous planning meetings, a theme was decided on and the design grew from there.
Summer represents a time of year where things are the brightest and we wanted to sew that inspiration into the details of the shoot. We let warm thoughts dictate a cheerful color palette and many of the details, down to the vibrant champagne popsicle bar!
ADG Fashion Styling pushed the theme’s aesthetic further by introducing a modern geometric design to the jewelry accessories. This forward theme can be seen in many of the other details from the shoot (geometry-inspired lanterns, program holders, lamps, custom ring box, and table menus).
Naturally, the vibrant color palette made it’s way into the floral design as pinks, oranges, yellows, and violets peppered so many scenes from the day. We, in particular, loved the floral wall embedded in the ivy at the front of the house and the flower pedal recessional from the wedding ceremony site!
No wedding is complete without a reception, and our backyard oasis provided the quintessential setting for a romantic evening! Our couple shared an emotional first dance set to the soulful sounds of the Benny Hill Trio while guests enjoyed a creative cocktail list at the gorgeous custom bar. Elegant lounge pieces, an equisite draping of garland, and hanging golden chandeliers completed the mood and proved the perfect book-end for our perfect day.
So many folks came together to make this shoot happen and we are so thankful for their incredible talents and giving hearts: The Good Life Film Company, A Thyme Savor Catering, Imaginary Cakes, Azalea Limousine, The British Taxi, Party Suppliers and Rentals, CE Rental, Pomp Event Furnishings, Coastal Knot, and Makeup For Your Day.
