“Our roots are the foundation of what makes us who we are. Our roots become the groundwork of our marriage. Our roots…inspire us.” This beautiful sentiment is the inspiration behind this stunning shoot at The Farmhouse at Newberry Manor from the team led by stylist and designer Michelle Wright Events. With a focus on simple, chic, warm and inviting, the design is filled with gorgeous details including calligraphy by Estudio Rojo, a gray lace gown by Alexandra Grecco, an elegant-rustic cake by Godino’s Bakery and so much more. We’re especially loving Cotton Social’s florals including an autumnal-hued bouquet and an captivating, unruly centerpiece. Lucky for us, our friends at Live View Studios were working their magic and capturing all the quiet beauty of the event hosted by The Film Gathering. You’re going to love it!
From the team: Our beautiful bride spent many a happy day as a child at her grandmother’s farmhouse. She decides to return to this sunbathed memory for her wedding. She plays homage to her roots while integrating her sense of style and design into the occasion. In a sense, she blends the old with the new. And how breathtakingly smart, as this is what a wedding is at its very core: the growing of the old roots from which you came from into a new tree, which will flourish with nurture and love.
With her stunning wedding dress, our bride chose a gown made completely of traditional lace, however she picks a modern gray color with a more revealing cut that is a perfect example of weaving the old and the new into a beautiful statement.
Her simple farmhouse table is the perfect setting to celebrate her wedding and is adorned with modern place settings and a gorgeous tile landscape to hold her centerpiece.
The farmhouse porch gently welcomes guests to come up and be a part of the roots. The Hunter boots casually left next to the front door with their flower design make the guest feel warm and cozy, as if they were a part of the bride’s memories, both old and new.
The scene is simple yet chic. Traditional yet modern. And most importantly, warm and inviting. Carefully woven details tied to our roots can have an amazing design effect.
