Modern Romantic

Laurel Calligraphy Live View Studio Gilded Bridal Modern Romantic Shoot (1).jpg

Just a little over a year ago I pulled into the parking lot of The Sutherland for my very first styled shoot.  Man, oh man, was it beautiful and the epitome of true southern hospitality!!! The garden was perfect for tradition to meet modern. From the ball gown, to the invitation suite, and sapphire engagement ring, you could feel the modern twist on these classics. Tara LaTour really outdid themselves with this navy ball gown and intricate detail making it a true show stopper. The custom wedding invitation suite was made of hand marbled paper with copper detail which rested in harmony with classic calligraphy flourishes. Notice the sapphire engagement ring resembling that of Princes Diana and Kate Middleton.  But the traditional meets modern didn't stop there ... look at the mix in the details of the floral table runner, cake, and rentals! This beautiful day was captured in full and can you believe the modules aren't a real couple!

Thank you so much to the wonderful team who made the day possible. I am beyond inspired and grateful to have worked with each of you!

P.S. - This wonderful shoot has been published not once but twice and even made the list of best wedding inspiration of 2017!
