Summer Wedding with Botanical Strawberry Theme
We've swooned over this shoot for longer than we care to admit. Every gorgeous image from Fine Art Curation member Hannah Alyssa, every lovely detail, styled with delicate care by Gregory Blake Sams. It's a floral heaven (filled with Summer strawberries!) thanks to Gathering Events with garden-wedding details to die for and quite possibly one of the prettiest cakes I've ever seen from Delicious Desserts. Did I mention there are Stephanie Fishwick/Moda Operandi china detailed in beautiful botanicals and two different looks involved? If you can believe it, just keep on scrolling...
From Hannah Alyssa: "I am excited to share two inspirational themes brought to life by designer Gregory Blake Sams at the historic Ashley Hall in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, founded in 1909. This hidden gem is a private all girls school and boasts numerous notable alumnae including First Lady Barbara Bush and Madeleine L’Engle, among others.
Blake teamed up with New York based stylist Lucy Bamman and Betty Bridal for the gorgeous bridal looks, including a Spring 2020 Mira Zwillinger gown. All looks were complemented with beautiful fine and estate jewelry from Charleston treasure trove Croghan’s Jewel Box, who this year celebrated 117 years of business in the Holy City.
The orchid themed tablescape was set in front of Ashley Hall’s historic conch shell house, built in the late 19th century. Blake used estate silver from Croghan’s in addition to orchid china by Anna Weatherley. The strawberry themed tablescape incorporates Stephanie Fishwick/Moda Operandi china, Ambasciata glassware and beautiful sage Matouk linens."
