We were so pleased to be a part of this gorgeous photo shoot that was featured on Munaluchi Bride!  Captured by ArtPhotoSoul, the golden affair added a shimmering glow to the landscape of the beautiful Grove House at Cypress Grove. RW Events coordinated all of the details that created this modern Southern look, from the dazzling cakes by Wendy Woo Cakes to the lush floral work by Windermere Flowers and Gifts.

Gold and white were the main colors of the day, with accents of peach. The tablescape featured traditional elements, such as the white-washed wooden table, mixed with modern pieces, like the acrylic ghost chairs and white leather lounge furniture. This combination of modern and classic Southern looks continued throughout the decor and paper goods.

The invitations and paper goods bore classic typography to match the elegance of the event. We used metallic golden peach ink printed on white paper to coordinate with the color scheme. The envelopes and menu backings were a warm, weathered metallic gold. We kept all of the paper goods clean-looking with few embellishments to create a modern feel.

We were honored to be a part of this gorgeous shoot! Thank you to the following fabulous wedding professionals for all of their contributions:

Our invitations were printed on a Warm White inset that was layered onto Pearlized Gold, then onto an Italian baroque flourished backing printed in shiny gold foil on Radiant Orchid.  A gold satin ribbon, knotted on the side, adorned the invitation. The round place-setting menus were also printed in gold foil on Radiant Orchid, and used a lattice pattern with fleur de lis.  The round menus fit perfectly onto the gold-rimmed plates and the vibrant purple hue popped against the white china. The escort cards mimicked the lattice pattern of the menus, with each guest’s name and table number printed in purple.

It was a pleasure being a part of this glamorous styled shoot, and as always a pleasure working with all the talented vendors involved.

{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.

Bride with bouquet, Dogwood Blossom Stationery

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.

Church Street Ballroom, Gatsby-themed wedding, Dogwood Blossom Stationery

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.

Ballroom at Church Street, Dogwood Blossom Stationery

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!

This cake by Party Flavors focuses on the elegance of the era by adorning the layers with a simple collection of pearl necklaces cascading from a flower.
