From Lustre Theory Styling: "This editorial is all about the fashion conscience bride who is looking for the epitome of personal expression, color and ALL THE DETAILS. Dover Hall Estate is an incredible venue outside of Richmond Virginia, with extensive grounds, several guest rooms and unique design features. Many of its incredible pieces inside were sourced directly from Europe when it was built. There is not a venue to match it in the area.
The shoot follows a Bride getting ready for her day with her Maid of Honor. She has chosen 2 stunning non-traditional Marchesa gowns with incredible detailing. The editorial moves through her spring wedding day with her husband to be and her best friend by her side. They enjoy the stunning table decor with all its breads, fruits, platters and bubbly.
The table styling includes luscious still life details and dramatic linens from BBJ Linen La Tavola. These details help to bring the table to life, you can see yourself sitting down and picking up that glittering coupe glass full of sparkling wine. Interacting with it, reaching for one of those grapes and cutting into the bread.
The florals are flowing and romantic, with organic blooms that accent the color choices and overall feel. The blooms are also used within the cake vignette, against that Kelly Green dining room wall. The cake styling mirrors the rest of the colors and richness of the shoot featuring a robin’s egg blue created by Sweet Fix.
Included with the table design are 6 stunning floral chairs by Photosynthesis Floral Design that mirror each other on opposing sides. The whole look creates a magical scene in the gardens around Dover. The custom designed stationery pieces are hand painted with gold foil detailing and calligraphy. They have a whimsical French influence and coloring that pulls from the accents and styling of the shoot. To set the tone of this event for guests."
