Today’s styled shoot, brought to us by Amanda of Hawthorn Hills Ranch is the epitome of Southern Charm. The setting is simply gorgeous and we just love the navy, blush and gold color scheme! Here’s Amanda to tell us more:

This shoot was fantastic. Every detail came together and highlighted the talents of each member. The florist, specialty linen company and even baker were given a color scheme and told to make any creative decisions themselves so they could shine in their own light. The outcome was breath taking – each piece down to the vintage china and gold plated silverware brought the shoot together seamlessly. It truly portrays the potential and benefit from choosing professionals for your wedding.

See more after the cut!


The couple who modeled was extremely sweet and their fun personalities made the shoot enjoyable for all involved.The unique pieces from a seating area to the gold desk in an entry add personal touches creating a one of a kind, elegant and polished look. Gold Dust Vintage does a phenomenal job at providing elegant pieces full of character that make a beautiful backdrop and setting.The specialty table linens make a huge difference in the atmosphere of your reception hall, nothing does this better than textured linens. Combined with the delicate border of vintage china the details will leave guests breathless.

The hand placed detail on each tier of the cake combines a modern and elegant style. Hand painted strokes offer a polished yet understated detail next to the ruffles, pearls and sequins. There is no denying the attention to detail and talent behind such a statement piece. Who says that cakes are only for being tasty? Make yours an accent for the room one that reflects your personality and character.

Menu cards were one of our favorites from this shoot. The hinge that allows you to swing it open is a simple way to ditch the traditional folding program/menu. The hand painted lines tie together wonderfully with the detail on the cake and offer a modern spin on an chic graphic design. Bring your furniture outdoors! One of our favorite trends are the seating areas outdoors. Allowing guests to enjoy a gorgeous day & wonderful view is a great way to set the scene during a cocktail hour – after all the scenery was one of the reasons you chose your venue. Choosing bold colors allow your gorgeous gown to truly stand out.


A venue set with a number of accents or scenery allow you to take unique photos and decide what fits your style best. This styled shoot highlighted the rolling hills and one of the tree lines as a backdrop. Choosing what time of year your wedding or photo sessions are can offer more than just a seasonal change. At Hawthorn Hills the time of year on the property will determine whether wild sunflowers, purple and pink or white and yellow wildflowers scatter the hillside. A southern chic venue offers a breath taking view with a modern, polished setting providing couples the ability to host an elegant wedding on a beautiful ranch.


Floral arrangements are so much more than a bouquet, often used at a focal point and centerpiece there is no limit to the design and style a professional can create. This floral offers height without limiting a sight line by utilizing a glass stand while still providing a full arrangement. Creating smaller accents that coordinate throughout the room from a bar cart to the coffee tables and guest tables truly ties everything together.

White chiavari chairs are one of our favorites, easily flexible to dress up or down they are favorable over folding chairs and offer more support for guests as well. Not limited with a metallic or wood grain appearance these white polished chairs leave no item overlooked during your event. Hawthorn Hills chose these chairs for their couples for this reason, allowing Brides to focus on decorating the room and tables.
