We love EVERYTHING Sylvie Gil Photography, so it’s no surprise that her recent workshop has us swooning. Planned and designed by Firefly Events, the styling includes silk accents in dreamy pastels, hand-touched elegance in the paper details by  Yonder Design with calligraphy by Plume Calligraphy, soft and stunning florals by Floresie and super romantic gowns from the likes of Vera Wang  and Claire Pettibone. Oh—not to mention—it’s all set against a stunning French countryside backdrop at Chateau de Varennes. Make sure to read below for the team’s inspirational back story of secret black tie masquerade ball. So fun! And it’s all here for us to enjoy in Sylvie Gil Photography‘s signature fine-art style.

from Firefly Events: Our bride and groom met at a secret black tie masquerade ball in Burgundy. They saw each other from across the room and were instantly drawn to one another. They spent the rest of the evening together and decided then and there to elope. They snuck away to a nearby abandoned chateau and tied the knot, just the two of them. The next day they sent word to a few of their closest friends to join them in an intimate celebration.

Green Pastures Austin, a historic property that’s hosted celebrations for three generations with majestic peacocks, canopies of live oak trees, and stunning southern architecture—a classic gem in an otherwise funky and progressive town—served as the inspiration for this shoot as old meets new and modern meets classic. Highland Avenue Events envisioned touches of black surrounded by swaths of white with pops of soft color mixed in which can be seen in the flowing bouquet by Bristollane, stationery August & Ember, and a timeless white vintage Rolls Royce from Four leaf Limo. Lucky for us all the details were photographed flawlessly by Virginia Ann.

Yellow. An often underutilized color in fine art wedding design, yellow exudes joy, happiness, and cheer. Goethe wrote, “We find from experience that yellow excites a warm and agreeable impression…the eye is gladdened, the heart expanded and cheered, a glow seems at once to breathe toward us.” East Made Event Company designed this editorial with a desire to demonstrate how the boldest, sunniest color can be elegantly subdued. Set at the National Cathedral School in DC for the Jeremy Chou Photography Workshop, the shoot features delicate and detailed gowns by Emily Riggs Bridal, floral arrangements by Blossom + Vine and calligraphy by Julie Ha Calligraphy all captured beautifully in these dreamy fine art images by Katrina Kim Photography.

The perfect mixture of life’s organic treasures tied in with the freshness of spring was dreamt up by Laurel & Fey for this inspiration editorial. The bright shades of green at The Fig House made it the perfect venue to host a modern and organic inspiration shoot while incorporating white, shades of green and earth-tone colors from Archive RentalsThe Bloemist put the focus on natural blooms in the organic all-white bouquet and centerpices. The illustrated and calligraphy paper pieces are by Song & Pen and the delicate silk, hand-dyed laurel leaf headpiece is by Mignonne Handmade. Vanilla Bakeshop  created a show-stopping cake of cascading real-life size magnolias, almost as if they picked them themselves. The team enlisted photograpaher  Ally Burnette  to capture all the details and they’re here for your inspiration in these beautiful images.
