southern sophistication in jewel tones

From VIVID Events “We love the color in this one! Romantic red and burgundy with a mix of blues accented with nude and blush (every bride’s favorite). Pantone tends to determine the future the colors of our inspiration are pulled from the 2017 palette: Flame Scarlet, Lapis Blue, Pale Dogwood, Kale, Hazelnut and Greenery. The blue delphinium in our florals pays tribute to the University of Kentucky and was the perfect choice for the Lexington shoot.”

“The Carrick House is located in historic downtown Lexington and boasts a traditional Southern mansion with modern updates creating a gorgeous backdrop for Kentucky brides to say their vows. Some of our favorite spots are the clean, white-washed brick of the rooftop patio, the vintage crystal chandeliers throughout the mansion and the floor-to-ceiling gilded mirrors which gave way to the most enchanting bridal portraits. Fireplaces warm the space perfect for an outdoor ceremony on a cold day or to add a romantic glow to the parlor during cocktail hour.”

“Flowers from Lovely Leaves were a gorgeous mix of red peonies, O’Hara garden roses, agapanthus, blue delphinium, hypericum berries, antique hydrangeas, ranunculus, snapdragons, ruskus, ivy, lemon leaf and hanging pepper berry. Bouquets and arrangements spilled over creating a lush, natural feel. We chose brass vases and candlesticks tying in with the eclectic yet traditional feel paired with modern gold flatware and gold-rimmed glasses.

Bryant’s Rentals is the local fav; they provided the China and linens in addition to stemware and flatware. The watercolor calligraphy menus (and stationery) were hand-dyed by Haley Michelle Designs and penned in metallic gold.”

“The gown featured is Hayley Paige from Twirl Bridal Boutique. We absolutely L O V E the lace corset top and the horsehair flounced skirt. Dramatic and eye-catching from any angle, I would wear this gown to my wedding. Accessories included blue suede Manolos and a soft and delicate veil. Shelbi Ferguson is fabulous for hair and make-up (I mean, she has pink hair) and fashioned a darling updo offset by smoky eyes and deep red lipstick for our bride model.

Other details included a small spice cake with cream cheese icing courtesy of Martine’s Pastries accented with florals. Martine herself is from France and also had a sweet selection of macaroons and other pastries we added in. Champagne  was served in mix-matched vintage glasses. Kelli Lynn Photography captured every detail on film giving all of the images the light, airy feel we adore”
