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

We are on board with blue, ladies! This gorgeous shoot put together by Live View Studios and Rebecca Rose Events  is one for the books! We are seriously obsessed, not only with the color, the style, and the ideas, but also the gorgeous location–River Oaks Charleston–a beautiful home and venue set amid beautiful towering oak trees and dripping southern moss, right on the banks of the Wando River. The inspiration for this shoot came entirely from nature–the organic textures and colors found on land, in the water and the vast blue sky.  Some of the greenery and flowers were foraged from the property and everything was shot just before dusk to capture the warmth and glow of sunlight streaming through the trees, dancing on the water, and spilling over the wooden dock.

Jessica of A Vintage Affair wanted to do something very feminine with vivid colors for Caitlin’s bridal shower. A garden party seemed to be a perfect fit. The inspiration for the whole party started with the quote: Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” The invitation set the tone with a watercolor floral border, a honeycomb patterned envelope liner, and a bright pink envelope and Tricia Egan of Violet Floral Design combined a cheerful mixture of peach, ivory and pink Peonies, blush Garden Roses, Lilac and Clematis to create a fun pastel garden-fresh palette.

A special detail, the adorable floral wristlets that greeted each guest with a Ranunculus bloom attached to the most beautiful pink ribbon. The splendid pink striped bar provided the perfect spot to gather and sip champagne. For a sweet treat, guests nibbled on colorful macaroon favors. The scrumptious waffle bar was the perfect choice for this brunch party (and what fun to include Pop Tarts in the buffet! Guests also loved the “Pin the Lips on Ryan Gosling” game! And the bride won! It turned out to be the perfect spring party that the bride wanted.

The whole party was captured on film by the talented Connie Dai.

Our favorite floral designer (possibly of all time) is Anna LePley Taylor, who just so happens to be the driving force behind our Secrets of a Stylist Workshop (of which the only date we’re offering this year so far happens to be coming up in a few short weeks: July 23rd!), came together with a crazy group of talented wedding pros to put together this inspiration shoot which we hope you’ll love (and start a new trend!). Yellow! Gold! Glamour!!! Together with photographer Diana McGregor, and design team, Jill & Co Events, they created a really drop dead stunner of shoot that we are up in arms about (in all the right ways). Anna is going to tell you all about the details whilst we revel in the glory that is sunshiney yellow goodness.

From Anna LePley Taylor:

Being a florist, often we are often given the responsibility of creating the tone of the wedding based on the color selected for the florals. I think it goes without saying that we see a lot of the same color requests over and over again. Most of these selections are based on the colors from styled shoots that have become popular and so when thinking about what kind of shoot we wanted to create, I wanted to combine a fresh take on colors.

Additionally, so many weddings recently have been “rustic” and we wanted to depart from this and give couples planning their weddings freedom to shamelessly return to elegant with a hint of modern.

The combination of deep antique gold and pale yellows reminds me of a late summer afternoon when the light becomes glowy. The opulent spilling tablecloth combined with the full romantic wedding dress by the lakeside is reminiscent of the old, lush south. Adding in elements of the groom’s white suit, clear glass plates, ghost chairs, and lucite reminds us that this couple is not entirely old-school southern elegance, but has a touch of modern and edge.

We hope you are as inspired by we were by this shoot!
