From Courtney of Courtney Hill Event Planning: As the event planner and stylist for this shoot, it was an absolute joy to work with this team of vendors. This truly showcases of all the vendors' respective talents and skills.
We wanted to portray a timeless event. One that was intimate and inviting; genuine and marked with a humble elegance. Utilizing a backdrop like The Wilds made it a dream to style.
In the styling and design process, I played off the white shiplap walls, the carefully curated furniture pieces, the hand painted mural by Creative In Bloom, and the wood hues from the handcrafted farmhouse tables. We held the shoot in early October, which inspired our color palette of dusty blues, soft Terra Cotta, and pops of dark burgundy. To warm the table, I pulled in pieces of gold in the plating and silverware to tie together with the stunning centerpieces that For The Beauty Floral created. We collaborated with Farmhouse Cakes for a stacked naked cake with soft gold details. What Alison created was a perfect match to the overall design and style of the shoot. Styling the flat lays was inspired by the thought and detail that went into the invitation suite created by Bloom and Brush Designs. I utilized all the colors of our palette as well as different textures to provide depth and dimension. Jordan Leffel Photography captured our complete depth of feeling, compassion for our respective crafts, and everything we wanted to portray in this shoot. Jordan brought every piece of this shoot together and presented it in the most beautiful and timeless way, inviting the viewer in and inspiring them through picture.
From Alison of Farmhouse Cakes: "I was particularly inspired by the natural elements and the modern rustic feel of The Wilds. Flowy, neutral linens gave the inspiration behind the golden lattice buttercream details over a semi-naked tiered cake, allowing for a classic and modern rustic feel. Our florist Dani of For The Beauty Floral, had a vision for her floral pieces to adorn the cake and together, we made her vision come to fruition."
