Timeless Navy and Gold Wedding Inspiration
Today is all about a certain type of understated elegance, courtesy of Lissa Ryan Photography and Claire Duran Weddings & Events. We love Dover Hall Estate in Virginia as it exudes a luxe, European feel that would add old world charm to any wedding. Pairing this timeless look with gold in the florals by Amanda Day Rose and navy in the handsome groom's look feels only natural....
From Claire Duran Weddings & Events: "This shoot was inspired by the luxurious beauty of Dover Hall Estate, a gorgeous mansion in the countryside of Virginia. We wanted to make this inspiration shoot a reflection of simple and classic elegance. The idea was to pair this aesthetic with a soft early spring color palette, and embrace the textures and majesty already embedded in the indoors of the venue and the raw natural elements in the outdoors. I didn’t want excessive decorations in our set that would overpower the rest of the space, yet it was fun to spice it up a bit with the strong yellow accent of the chairs that tied into the florals. The lace details in the dress and shoes, the delicate calligraphy on hand-made paper, the charming cake, the fragility in the petals, and the beautiful drape of the bouquet all provided us with special feminine details to further romanticize the inspiration."
