Heights House Bridal Editorial

Enjoy reading through this Heights House Bridal Editorial and hearing a little more of the vision!

“Montfort Hall, now known as Heights House Hotel, was commissioned in 1858 by William Montfort Boylan with the guidance of British architect William Percival. The Italianate style mansion was completed in 1860 and sits on the highest point of the now historic Boylan Heights neighborhood in Downtown Raleigh. It is one of the few remaining pre-civil war houses in the Raleigh area and is a National and Raleigh Historic Landmark. Over the past 162 years, the house has seen an array of owners, renovations, restorations, and changes. Even so, the home was incredibly well built and the structure has truly stood the test of time. This special piece of Raleigh history recently finished it’s most recent restoration to add to the vibrancy of downtown Raleigh as a boutique hotel and event space.”

You can read more about the history and story of The Heights House on their website HERE.

When the house was under construction, I knew I wanted to create something here. Old world charm with a flare of European design speaks to my soul. It is exactly my style!

I wanted this bridal portrait editorial to be very romantic and feminine with a touch of moodiness. I wanted to feature the rich colors of olive green and dusty rose. This shoot has two different dresses featured with an array of handcrafted clay jewelry pieces.

I’m pretty proud of this shoot because I feel like I produced it. Seeing the final vision come to life has been so rewarding!

But this editorial wouldn’t have been made possible without the help some other talented vendors!
