The Wedding Party Styled Shoot, Summer 2016
We love being part of The Wedding Party: a group of local wedding vendors who share ideas and gain inspiration through collaboration. Every year we put together a photo shoot featuring the latest wedding trends in each of our respective fields. This year The Wedding Party gang traveled to Farmer and Frenchman in Henderson Kentucky for an elaborate shoot at this picturesque wedding venue and vineyard. Together we created an inspirational story, taking our 'bride and groom' from getting dressed to an elegant dinner reception.
As for the fashion, our goal was to convey texture. Right now in the bridal fashion scene, designers are featuring gowns with luscious texture and intricate beadwork. Since this particular story would be featuring a 'more is more' ceremony scene as well as an intimate and elegant reception scene, we selected two gowns that suited each setting. The elaborate Hayley Paige ballgown had plenty of presence among the gorgeous foliage in the ceremony set. For the reception, we selected an embellished column dress by Matthew Christopher that was sure to twinkle in the candlelight.
The word 'Moody' came up several times in planning this shoot, so we selected Donna Morgan sequin bridesmaid dresses in a deep 'moody blue'. We love every last detail of this shoot, which leaves us utterly inspired for the upcoming year of fabulous local weddings.
