I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

The draping, ghostly quality of the Spanish moss at River Oaks Charleston was the inspiration behind this stunning workshop hosted by Michael and Carina Photography.  East Made Event Company led the creative team in crafting details in a deep, rich, autumn color palette and romantic garden style that accentuates the richness of the grounds of the venue. Highlights include old-world stationery design by Maurelle Calligraphy and Design, a show-stopping bouquet and floral chandelier by  La Fleur du Jour and a delicate Alexandra Grecco gown. Lucky for us, The Ganeys were behind the lens capturing all the late-summer/early fall inspiration in these lovely film photographs.

Walls made of flowers, arrangements as extravagant as they come, a custom moss aisle runner as earthy as it is luxurious, silk ribbons and velvet in hand-dyed colors—the details in today’s shoot make for an aesthetic that’s lush, layered, and intriguing all at once. Francine Ribeau Events designed the over-the-top garden party details in a sophisticated, eye-popping palette—pink and peach florals by BLOOMS by Breesa Lee play perfectly against dusty blue ties and textiles, while pops of orange and gold add a little something light and bright to this summer garden affair. Rochelle Cheever was behind the lens at Rancho Valencia capturing it all—from the shoes to the hot air ballon!

Sarah of Selva Floral is known for her unstructured and abundant floral, botanical design and today’s styled shoot features exactly that. The spectacular lilac-framed floral installation was created on Sarah’s family’s country property and she reached out to Outlive Creative and James Silvius to capture it. The team added minimal details including a lovely pared-back place setting with a white centerpiece and a lilac flavored artisan cocktail drink to compliment the theme. The the dreamy details are captured against a cotton-candy sunset and the mood is absolute perfection.

The team behind this Dark Romance inspiration shoot took their design cues from the moody floral wallpaper adorning the halls of the Hotel Monaco. Rich, velvety textures and candlelit details exude the very essence of modern romance. Calligraphy stationery is by Judith Browne, jewel-toned florals are by Posy and dramatic cakes are by The Butterwood Bake Consortium. Floral accessories like the bride’s Ted Baker shoes and groom’s dinner jacket add modern flair and Grey Collective member Palermo Photo was on hand to capture all the drama and the details in these film photographs.

Is fall seriously just around the corner?? This farm to table inspiration shoot definitely gets us excited for those autumnal vibes with it’s color palette rich in mustard yellow, cream, pink and orange. Planner and stylist Leigh and Mitchell foraged ferns to create the sculptural floral installation hanging above the dining table and incorporated organic vegetables like turnips in the centerpieces. The mood is light, airy and modern with stationery by Euni + Co. and baked goods by Bakery Nouveau. Captured on film in Catie Coyle Photography‘s signature style, the over look is delightful and has us excited for the beauty of fall weddings.
