And they lived happily every after...
Our story begins with a lovely couple, Jeff and Sarah, who had a deep desire to become parents. Last summer, I planned a fundraiser to help them with a domestic adoption. The best news? On May 3, they welcomed a lovely little girl into their family!
Our shoot was featured on Every Last Detail - Greenery & Peach Vintage Eclectic Wedding Details. Caley Newberry Photography captured the shoot that starred our lovely parents-to-be as the models. Let's chat about the style shoot, but stay tuned for more on the fundraiser!
Feather+Oak, stylist, describes the shoot design:
We wanted an intimate family feel, as if the property had been in the family for generations, but we also wanted to modernize it for today's couple. We balanced the home's historical color palette with a romantic color story of fresh greens, pinks, and whites. The use of Civil War era flatware and a 125-year-old cake stand alongside Christina's beautiful modern ceramics marry the past with the present. To further modernize the overall style we created a frothy pink veil to pair with our lovely bride's modest Olia gown. The result is at once historic, modern, and organic.
The venue, GranDale Manor, is a classic Southern home with a twist, it was a part of the Underground Railroad during the Civil War. After being neglected for years, the current owners completely restored the home in 2011 and kept the Greek Revival design intact.
Our design began with securing GranDale Manor. The yellow walls, the original fireplace, and a painting of pink roses influenced the details.
Knowing that greenery was growing into one of the hottest wedding trends, Feather+Oak designed a gorgeous mantle piece with florals from Rachael Ann's Event Design.
We paired Feather+Oak's custom pink veil with a two-piece Jae and Sasha dress by Olia Zavozina. All of our vendors pulled together a wonderful shoot at Feather+Oak's direction (make sure to watch the video below!).
