Can you say swoon! This peach estate wedding on our wedding ceremony weblog right now is giving us major Southern/French feels! It is a beauty, for certain. Lovelyfest, you made our dreams come true inside this beautiful estate! (Remember when they wow-ed us with this wedding ceremony?!)Contemporary with the two a two-piece and blush wedding ceremony gown, and vintage in venue, furniture, and decor – it is a winning blend.
When making a styled shoot, we’re often pondering ahead to what potential brides want to see. Romantic, airy, light and fresh editorials are abundant appropriate now, and we completely love this trending theme simply because of a single point: it is not trendy! We consider this is a theme that will keep in design forever, and romanticism in weddings is certainly not going away. Being inspired by French architecture, gardens and vogue, we made this shoot to have a romantic, French, industrial flare filled with simplicity and contemporary accents.
The venue itself is a newly renovated, historic building that has been about since the 1920’s, when it was frequented by celebrities like Lucille Ball. This history, mixed with the open beam ceilings, exposed brick walls, and arched Palladian windows of the Estate have been extremely inspiring to us. The clean lines, stark white trim, and symmetrical architecture supplied the best spot for us to create a French, industrial wedding ceremony, and we can only imagine what it would be like to design and style an total genuine wedding in this room. It is stunning and sophisticated and is set up to host events massive and little.
Retaining consistent with the concept of a French inspired shoot, we envisioned our bride as an elegant French woman on her wedding ceremony day. Celebrity hair and makeup artist,Joy Castandeda, enhanced our bride’s natural elegance and feminine functions perfectly with soft makeup and classic hair. She then slipped into Claire La Faye‘s blush Swan Song gown, and our vision was complete.
The intimate ceremony was set in the grand entrance of the Estate, with ceremony chairs draped in all-natural, flowing linen material and crystal chandeliers lining the tall ceilings. Our backdrop was manufactured of a straightforward oversized topiary, reminiscent of ones seen lining the gardens of Paris. A couple of white butterflies accented the topiary, a subtle French theme we integrated throughout the shoot.
Cocktail hour was manufactured total with several vintage seating lounges from Archive Vintage Rentals‘ unique and timeless pieces. The Estate has a assortment of nooks that are just begging to be filled with beautiful furnishings, and guests adore cozying up on these pieces with a excellent cocktail! As an alternative of a typical bar, this one was made of a weathered vintage hutch and was accented with Lovelyfest’s vintage crystal glassware.
The 2nd story is exactly where we set the French inspired dining table, adorned with the most incredible French-inspired striped La Tavola Fine Linen and Archive Rentals vintage chairs.
With each other with Meagan Vos of MV Florals, we designed a exclusive floral centerpiece that lined the table in length and offered tons of height. Meagan added beautiful florals and greenery to the customized framework and made it look like a real Parisian garden appropriate on leading of the table. We accented the framework with vintage brass candlesticks for romantic light, and set the table with hand-dipped vintage gold charger plates, crystal glassware and salt cellars, and natural linen napkins.
Following the bride and groom cozied up amongst the table decor, they headed to the cake table, filled with adorable handmade cakes by Jay’s Catering. We adore the simplicity of these cakes and fresh macarons, just as they would be in a traditional bakery in France.
