This feature is Part II of a series of styled shoots created at Seven Springs VA. See Part I here.
As a group of friendors (that’s a group of wedding vendors who are all friends, for those who don’t know), we have the honor of working at Seven Springs a lot, but we've noticed that a lot of our clients want to let the venue speak for itself and they tend to air on the side of neutral when it comes to floral and table design choices.
So, when we all had a little downtime, we pulled together this styled shoot to show our future clients that this historic venue can still look polished and chic while embracing fun pops of colors in the design.
We used lush velvet linens, textured glasses and chargers, and lush, organic, funky florals by the floral queen herself, Amanda Burnette. We love that she paired some interesting vases together, like clean ceramics, brassy metallics, and a stone base terrarium.
She installed a floral chandelier in the Seven Springs pavilion that can serve as a ceremony statement piece and a frame for the sweetheart table. We strive to spend our clients money wisely by encouraging them to invest in creative pieces but we find ways to repurpose things throughout the event.
We loved how the freestanding ceremony piece framed the couple (and let's talk about how cute their daughter is) without being the typical wooden arbor or truss. And we love that it could translate beautifully on a cement floor or in the middle of a field somewhere. And just like the floral chandelier, they can be moved and repurposed at the reception.
