This dreamy styled shoot comes to us from Natalie of Swoon-Worthy Events, based in Jacksonville, Florida! Here’s Natalie to tell us about the inspiration for the shoot and the talented team that put it all together:

Inspired by a friend’s recent trip to Oregon, where flowers bloom among gleaming obsidian rocks, this styled shoot boasts original concepts. The juxtaposition of the light, floral linen draped beneath bold, geometric centerpiece arrangement is inviting. Offset by glowing tealights reflecting in their geometric glass holders, this tablescape is just gorgeous. Bold black chargers is a different take on traditional place settings for an elegant affair. Charming black rock candy is a sweet surprise arranged neatly on each plate.

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Ben of Style & Story Creative, is all about classic elegance and impeccable details! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

I never fully appreciated the words “best day of my life” until my wedding day. Andy and I were engaged for 18 months so we definitely had some time to plan what we would consider, the perfect day. Our theme was pure, classic elegance with neutral tones of ivory, cream, and champagne coupled with just a touch of blush. We wanted our wedding to be timeliness and not something we would look back at in 25 years and think “why did we choose that”.
