Wedding trends are all about organic, and this stunning inspiration shoot from Ashley Kristen Photography and Taylor’d Southern Events blends natural details with bridal glam and classic Southern hospitality! Winter green decor and subtle touches of gray combine for stunning flower installations by Kim Starr Wise for an effortless and elegant New Orleans wedding day!
Classic touches for the bride’s accessories including an oval halo engagement ring and stunning crystal embellished heels!
The bride balanced classic and daring style in a sweeping lace wedding dress from Olivia Bowen Bridal with a plunging neckline and center slit! Verde Beauty accented the deep scoop back with a romantic bridal updo and added a touch of vintage glamour with smokey eyes.
How incredible is this bouquet by Kim Starr Wise! The white, silver, and green palette included roses, eucalyptus, and preserved ferns to add texture and volume while keeping the focus on the abundance of greenery.
A champagne and lavender lemonade display greeted guests at famed New Orleans venue, Il Mercato, and invited them to grab a drink and find their seat! Lovely hand lettered signs by Works of Harte added a personal finishing touch while giving guests direction through the reception.
The striking ballroom at Il Mercato offered a beautifully neutral space for Taylor’d Southern Events and Kim Starr Wise to decorate. The airy rooms and lovingly restored doors perfectly suited the subtle grays and deep foliage tones of the greenery runner, and the Italianate chandelier served as the perfect canvas for a massive hanging greenery arrangement!
Pure Vintage Rentals brought in reception furniture to suit the Old World feel of the venue, pairing a dark wood table with linen upholstered settee for a cozy Head Table. Cut crystal glassware and silk napkins added to the luxurious feel of the table decor, with gold flatware and magnolia illustrated menus to cap it off beautifully!
A vintage bar was the perfect focal point for the reception – guests could grab a glass or visit the bubbly wall for a flute of champagne!
Pure Cake Nola focused on the lovely subtle gray touches to create this masterful modern cake on a vintage pedestal table! The marbled panels adorning a simple white cake added a romantic misty texture that echoed the silk runner to perfection!
