It was a chance opportunity to shoot in a century-old mansion - HAY HOUSE - that inspired planner & stylist QUERY EVENTS to create this southern mansion elopement shoot. "When we got the chance to bring life and movement back into this stunning historic museum, we jumped all over it! Greeted by the winding staircase, we made our way to the second floor where we found a wide‐open ballroom and stunning natural light." It was important to both her and photographer ANNE BROOKSHIRE that they showcase lots of movement and make that element the focus. "Placing our model in a simple gown with a sky‐high slit allowed for all the action shots we were craving! Designing with soft butter yellow, cream and dusty blue complimented the warm wood tones throughout all each level." QUERY EVENTS also created the florals using blooms that would naturally be found in a Georgian courtyard including large garden roses and magnolia foliage.
