Style Me Pretty is all about inspiration. The kind that gives you butterflies, that brings out the giddy, that excites and inspires you to design a wedding that is as lovely as it is personal. And when we saw this photoshoot designed to do just that, we knew we had to share! Crafted by the oh-so-talented Diana of Diana Marie Photography along with Jennifer Olariu of Encore Events (full vendor list below) this is Rustic Elegance defined. And it's beyond.
From the lovely Diana Marie, who planned this gorgeous shoot in a mere 2 weeks...
Since we put together this shoot in such a short period of time, we definitely had our work cut out for us. Jennifer, of Encore Events, started with the centerpieces. We knew that we wanted to create a look that mimicked mercury glass. To do this, Jennifer hand-stained glass vases in different sizes with metallic paint in shades of gray and bronze. Voila. We then enlisted the help of Aly with The Vine’s Leaf to create the florals for the shoot. The only creative direction Jennifer gave her was to use only creamy white florals with dusty miller leaves.The bridal bouquet was wispy and filled with field like greenery accents and wrapped in a luxurious deep gray ribbon that complemented the gray chiavari cushion.
As we were setting up, we were thrilled to see that everything we had ordered came to life so beautifully. The mahogany wood table and antique style chiavari chairs from Classic Party Rentals created such an idyllic ambiance when placed in the middle of the horse trail with pasture fences surrounding it on all sides. The metallic chargers were placed over white linen dinner napkins with countryside stitching along the edges. On each plate, we added a recycled cardboard favor box wrapped in a billowy blue green chiffon ribbon. This tablesetting exuded countryside elegance.
