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

Photographer Kristen Hendricks Photography brings us a palette of wintery pastels in this inspiration shoot set at Silver Oaks Chateau. Dusty blue details in the tablescape, textural florals by Roses & Mint and hand lettering by RSVPEAS add romance while mix-and-match china and Made by Lia‘s petite blue cake decked out in florals keep things feeling modern. Kristen Hendricks Photography captured all the details set against the seasonal backdrop of bare trees and we’re thrilled to share the beauty in these images.

We are completely holi-dazzled by Caroline and Ben’s Auburn, Alabama wedding. Invision Events planned the day with help from florist The Flower Store and stationer Linen & Leaf. The deep maroon palette is the perfect twist on traditional holiday colors and keeps things totally timeless with a multi-seasonal appeal. The details are stunning—a lush ceremony arch, letterpress calligraphy, wood-mounted custom signage, embroidered cocktail napkins, suspended greenery structures and flowers everywhere—and the best part is that it was all set against the backdrop of the bride’s family cabin at Parker Hill. The family property is also a venue and Carline and Ben’s wedding was the first to be celebrated there. Lucky for us, the couple enlisted the skills of our friend Davy Whitener Photography to capture their day and the images are stunning.

What made the wedding special and unique? 

The wedding was unique to me because it was freezing and raining most of the day! We had to do a last minute rain tent for ceremony, but it ended up all working out and was beautiful. We were all close together and huddled up! And our pictures turned out beautiful!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

My mom and I found the Rivini gown in Atlanta at Lori’s Bridals where “Say Yes to the Dress” is filmed. I had looked at several other places, but when I tried this one on it was that feeling of “THIS IS IT!” It fit me like a glove so I didn’t need to do many alterations and the veil really sold me on the dress as well.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We did a lot of personalization like most people do from the napkins to the cups, but I think the biggest thing was having the wedding at our family cabin. My dad renovated it for the wedding so none of our guests had ever been there! It was our own style from the actual venue down to the décor!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The vows were the most memorable part of the day for me! Our longtime family friend married us and my aunt read a poem that my grandmother – who had passed the year before – had written years ago about getting married on a rainy day. It was so surreal that it was actually raining on our wedding day! I felt like my grandmother was with us at the ceremony.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met in Destin when I was on a girls trip in 2015. I vacationed in Destin a lot and had a friend that was living there. We ran into him and he introduced us! Ben deployed to South America a week later for six months. We kept in touch and when he got back to the states we immediately started dating. The engagement was very low key! We were living in Destin and on the way to dinner he said needed to get something from my parents beach condo that he had left there. We went out on the balcony and there were flowers and he got on one knee and asked! It was just us – very personal and sweet! And overlooking the ocean which is a big part of our life!

Bisous Events, together with the photographer Danijela Weddings and florist Forever Wildfield came together to create this romantic editorial with the modern bride in mind. Set in an industrial loft space, the look is geared towards brides who appreciate a minimalist and fresh aesthetic, yet still fall for the moody romance. Wild greenery climbs the walls, softening the stark whiteness of the loft while the florals brought femininity to the monochromatic palette with subtle hints of mauve, purple and muted peach. Textured stationary by Andrea of Scarlet & Albaster perfectly complemented the florals and a statuesque, tiered cake by Opulent Cake Co. stuns as a reception showpiece. This minimalist dream is captured with a soft touch in Danijela Weddings‘s beautiful film photos below.
