Romantic European Inspiration Shoot

So excited to share this inspiration shoot with everyone! It took place back in March and is featured on You can view it here :

It was inspired by European architecture and old world charm. The Bradford is a charming European inspired wedding venue with a breathtaking terrace. The goal was to create something romantic, elegant and fresh as we prepared for spring around the corner.

Our colors were soft pastels including shades of pink, lavender, dusty blue and peach. Cottage Luxe’s European parquet table paired with two Alexandrian chairs fit the look we were going for. Touches of gold from the candlesticks to the flatware tied in with the natural tones of the house. 

The florals from North Raleigh Florist were so elegant and lively. Our table arrangement featured roses, greenery and baby kale. Hand painted ribbons fell gracefully from the bride’s bouquet. 

We wanted the shoot to imitate an actual wedding day. So we started with the details all the way to sneaking off for those romantic sunset photos in the evening. The bride’s simplistic tulle dress from Gilded Bridal was perfect for running through fields chasing that golden light.

My favorite part was seeing our models together, who are actually engaged! When they saw each other for the first time, you could definitely feel the love. The way they looked and smiled at each other was so precious. And at the end of the day, that is the most important aspect of the wedding ; the love and bond a couple shares for each other! Hope you all enjoy!
