Today’s inspiration is all about vintage comfort. This charming styled shoot featured in the 2017 edition of Southern Bride & Groom magazine was designed by C & D Events and captured by Riley MacLean Photography. It takes place at the historic All Saints Chapel in Raleigh.
Ten years ago, All Saints Chapel, home to the original Church of the Good Shepherd in downtown Raleigh, was moved from its original location on Hillsborough Street to the current location east of historic Oakwood. The chapel is a local treasure – with its stained glass window and pointed arches – the perfect venue for the timeless bride.
You can get an inside look at the venue, meet other wedding professionals, and learn how to incorporate local love into your own big day during the 3rd Annual Shop Local Weddings event presented by Shop Local Raleigh and Southern Bride & Groom on January 17, 2017.
During this shoot, C & D Events fashioned wedding inspiration that combined modern elements with vintage energy. The planners worked with Tre Bella Flowers to coordinate a color scheme of deep emerald and bright pinks accentuated with mossy undertones to contrast with the rich wood features of the historic chapel.
“As much as we love the simple elegance of neutral wedding designs, we love the vintage colors from the past that we hoped to capture from this shoot,” said Becca Taylor, lead designer for this project.
Loose, unstructured bouquets are always romantic and especially in fashion with the woodsy elements of this design.
The invitation suite was a beautiful watercolor design in vintage blue. Paired with matching linen, it packs an extra colorful punch. Tablescapes captured the natural feel with a moss runner, deer antlers, flower-filled terrariums and pops of vibrant fuchsia overtop a wooden farm table with vintage seating. A dessert table held a two-layer cutting cake, and delicious raspberry-chocolate and decadent lemon tarts from Sugar Euphoria.
