This elegant Williamsburg Botanical Garden shoot has been published on Glamour and Grace today and I have been dying to share more of it with you. When Kari of Two River Events first suggested antlers, rich reds, and golden accents I had a little bit of trepidation. However, she and Karen of Aleen Floral Design helped to pull an amazing team of vendors together. I love how fluidly they interwove the antlers into the table setting and Erin’s bridal bouquet.
From the rich fall hues to the bountiful rustic tables and elegant golden accents, I am so proud of what this dream team pulled together. This promotional shoot was created to highlight the beauty of the Williamsburg Botanical Gardens as they become a new wedding venue in the Tidewater area of Virginia. If you haven’t visited the Garden, it is the perfect intimate wedding venue with a great space for cocktails, a first look, and dancing.
I have to tell you that I waited with baited breath to get my hands on the wedding invitations that Suzy Matthews sent me from Letters from S. Her work in wedding invitations is always unique and fresh. She surprised me with an luscious red leather envelope for her handmade rustic wedding invitations. These perfectly mirrored the rich leather worn by the groom in our shoot with his hand sewn suspenders.
From the antique bread bowl used for our table centerpiece to the handcrafted dining table provided by Pam of Nathaniel’s Unique Events, this styled promotional shoot turned out to be a dream to capture.
A huge thank you to all the wedding vendors that came out to make this vision a reality. I look forward to getting together with this dream team in July for our Two Rivers Wedding.
