Behind the scenes



Charlottesville Romantic Wedding Inspiration

This editorial photoshoot was inspired by the beauty of Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia. The bushes of pale pink roses ornamenting the arbored walkways gave us the perfect inspiration to build upon. This naturally beautiful landscape gave us the perfect setting to create a garden wedding setup full of romantic, soft, and elegant touches, all of which go in line with our signature aesthetic. We wanted to create a cascading tablescape where the flower arrangements could be well integrated within the backdrop landscape, making the table an extension of the arbor and all the greenery around it. All the rest of the elements of the shoot were thought of with understated, simple, and sophisticated organic beauty, a soft neutral palette, and the thought of movement, all of which Nicole Colwell masterfully captured.
