What started out as a fun, unique winter styled shoot quickly became a real-life magical elopement for Candice + Bradley, sweethearts since high school who have been engaged for three years. Since they hadn’t yet pinned down a date to make it official, they jumped at the chance to exchange their vows in the stunning setting Unveiled Design Events + Teacup Floral dreamt up and created. The photographer behind these lovely images, Christina from J. Christina Photography, describes the scene so beautifully: Black, white, greens, and golds turned this secret wooded pathway into a stunning altar backdrop. Our inspiration for this editorial shoot was a sweet Southern plantation, tall pine trees, and cozy black velvet. The energy shifted from a fun styled shoot to excited anticipation to be apart of a real love story unfolding before us. It was sweet, tender and perfectly intimate …. as ideal as an elopement ought to be.
We’re so glad that Candice + Bradley got to take advantage of the team’s hard work!
How much do you love Candice’s stunning black dress?! It’s actually a skirt and top! Love it. The skirt is from Bella Lucia Boutique and the top is from The Limited. The outfit is a perfect fit for C’s avänt ɡärd style.
Talk about a statement shoe! Lovin’ those Giuseppe Zanottis!
Teacup Floral really brought to life the inspiration for a modern-woodland affair. The rich textures + darker hued ingredients made for such an elegantly dramatic look.
Julianne says, A hot drink station brought in some fun winter elements while Amanda Day Rose designed beautiful green and white stationery to complete this unique fete.
Gotta love a gal who can rock a motorcycle jacket on her big day!
