Tryon Palace is known for being North Carolina's first permanent state capitol, but also for the sixteen acres of beautifully designed gardens. With French and English design influence, the grounds have multiple spaces worthy of capturing, and Melissa Blythes' vision for the palace gardens can easily be grasped.
The styled shoot was fit for a queen, with a gorgeous long sleeved lace dress, beaded head piece, and velvet heels completed the stunning look. Her bouquet, an oblong style with tones of peach, mauve, white and blush, with whimsical greenery was just as royal. Roses, anemones, butterfly ranunculus, clooney ranunculus, blooms in the bouquet harmonize with the surrounding gardens, with every angle being a picturesque backdrop. Outside the iron gates a table scape was set, fit for her majesty, with gold flatware, velvet linens, taper candlesticks and crystal dessert dishes adorned with gold lace details. In the middle an asymmetrical centerpiece just as whimsical as the bridal bouquet flowed through the table settings as if it was designed perfectly for the table.
When asked to be apart of such a unique shoot, in our favorite color scheme we could not have been more excited. Never the less once we saw the final shots from all the lovely vendors that came together to complete the shoot, everyone knocked it out of the park! We were blow away with the pictures and styling of our sweet model with our florals, which made us want to go and get married there right away. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!
