Last year, we were a part of this gorgeous garden-inspired styled shoot that looks like it was straight out of a fairy tale! The Garden Chateau‘s classic interior and atmospheric grounds set the stage for the planning team at Anna Christine Events to design a romantic wedding scene. Bright pinks, shimmering gold, and warm wood tones set a color palette that was dreamy and timeless. Wings of Glory Photography did a fantastic job capturing all of the details. Looks like others agreed: we were beyond thrilled that Beautiful Bride Magazine not only published the shoot, but featured it on their cover!

We used floral artwork on our invitations and paper goods to emphasize the garden theme of the shoot. Blooms in various shades of pink and red with bright greenery burst from the corners of our designs. The invitations were mounted on petal pink stock and backed by a sophisticated gold stripe with coordinating envelopes lined with the striped paper. A calligraphy-like script in metallic gold was used to write the couple’s names. We used this romantic script throughout our paper goods with other important text printed in a classic serif font.

Our double-sided keepsake menu cards featured the couple’s names, the venue, and the date on one side. The gold stripe pattern created a “picket fence” design that bordered the bottom of the card. On the reverse, the courses of the meal were written in metallic gold. Of course, pink flowers graced both sides of the cards.

We created other fantastic paper goods for the shoot, including escort cards, table number signs, chair back signs for the head table, and a “This Way to the Wedding” sign. To keep a consistent look, we continued the font styles, metallic gold, and floral designs throughout the stationery suite. Our escort cards had a little extra detail that made them that much more special: the inside of the tent cards featured the gold stripe pattern seen on the invitations.

Anna Christine Events created two different ceremonies and two different receptions: one indoor and one outdoor of each! We especially liked the outdoor reception, with its long farm tables from A Chair Affair, glowing candelabras, and market string lights. Of course, a garden-themed wedding wouldn’t be complete without an abundance of flowers! Flowers By Lesley did an absolutely amazing job creating a luscious environment, decorating everything from the banisters of the grand staircase, to a sweet tree swing, to the wedding arch. The candelabras were clustered with blossoms and the cake by Iva’s Cake Place looked divine with Lesley’s floral touches. The bride carried a beautiful beautiful bouquet of pink garden roses and cascading greenery, which was also seen gracing her blonde ringlets.

{Inspiration} Great Gatsby Styled Shoot at Church Street Ballroom

Brides with Chauffeur, Dogwood Blossom Stationery

The roaring twenties was a time of wealth, reform and an ongoing party. This Great Gatsby theme put together by Misty Miotto‘s team encompasses all there is to love about this age, with a modern swing to keep it relevant. Follow the marvelous photographer on a journey to the past.

One groom, so many brides! Dogwood Blossom Stationery

The 20s introduced a “new woman” and ladies everywhere were breaking traditions in everything–especially in fashion. Here, the model brides are no exception with bobbed hair styles, bejeweled hair pieces, lavish jewelry and dresses from The Collection Bridal which did an incredible job capturing the essence of the era.

The bride’s look is a delicate balance between something new and something borrowed. Her hairpiece, gloves, jewelry and veil are all borrowed from the twenties while her dress has a modern bodice with simple details–making it the perfect canvas for her more expressive pieces. The attention to detail makes this look work without being costume-like.

The name “Golden Era” is extremely prominent in the color selection for the decor. The golden, ruffled table covers from Over the Top use texture to add variation and the feathered centerpieces add the free flowing breeze of the period. The Church Street Ballroom is the ideal place to hold such an event because architecturally it enhances the theme with its symmetrical design, high ceilings and large columns. All of these factors give guests a chance to Charleston the night away in style.

Our escort cards, table numbers, menus, and invitations are no exception to the glitz and glamour of the signature tune. Staying golden, the creamy background with simple line design stands out when put against the gilded surfaces. We used an Art Deco-inspired font that looks like they were created almost a century ago. The invitations were nestled in gold mesh pouches embellished with sequins and glass beads and placed in gold invitation boxes lined with white faux fur. Talk about decadence!
