Full of castles, mist, and a magical feeling, the Loire Valley conjurs up elegant scenes of romance. After travelling through France, stylist EMILY from EMILY CLAIRE EVENTS wanted to bring this European aesthetic - the feeling and ambience - back to her brides in North Carolina. The GRAYLYN ESTATE with it's old world charm, was the perfect venue. With its beautiful stonework reminiscent of Medieval French castles, the warm tones were the perfect tonic to the greys and blues of the hand-dyed silk ribbon and linens. The foraged florals by PHILOSOPHY FLOWERS add an organic quality, while the lace in the brides vintage style gown from BHLDN brings just the right amount of refinement. Combining organic and vintage details gave the elegant result Emily was after, and these stunning images by JAKE & HEATHER PHOTO show her efforts off perfectly.
