The inspiration for this shoot by Tennessee wedding photographer HONEYSUCKLE & WINE was born out owner Millie's daydreaming! Envisioning soft pinks combined with terracotta and ethereal morning light, she set about re-creating her vision of an intimate, romantic space that truly echoed the already beautiful "Secret" English Ivy garden on the grounds of this private estate-turned-wedding venue in West Tennessee.
Millie explains, "Our design was centered around the gorgeous Anais gown by CLAIRE PETTIBONE which is embellished with flowers and lace and the most feminine details. Incorporating an alternative colour palette that is complimentary of late summer, early fall, and spring all at once, florist PAMPAS & FLORAL used a mixture of whimsical blooms and untamed greenery to bring our vision to life, drawing from the floral details in the dress and the morning sunshine. We wanted to show how intimacy and luxury can come together to create the perfect atmosphere for a micro wedding or elopement that still includes grand details. Not only were the paper goods by wedding stationery designer INQUISITED tailor-made to accompany our design, but the bottle of Veuve Cliquot was hand-painted by a local artist for the special occasion. Our hope is that this shoot conveys intimate joy, timeless beauty, and whimsical elegance in even the tiniest details. I love that the palette for this shoot can be used in virtually any season, and can bring a new level of luxury to even the smallest of events. One of the amazing things about the WHITE RAVEN MANOR is that it can be as grand or as intimate as it needs to - and the ivy garden is, in my opinion, the loveliest of spaces."
