classic and modern hampton roads wedding

Today’s gorgeous wedding inspiration shoot from Amanda Hedgepeth Photography combines a classic wedding style with modern touches.

This shoot is brimming with amazing details to be on the lookout for: the feathered bodice on the bridal gown, gold flakes on the chocolate, color-blocked treats, golden acorns on the table, and the beautiful bronze vases and candlesticks used in the centerpiece designs!

From Amanda Hedgepeth Photography – “Our vision for this shoot could not have had a more beautiful, brighter, and colorful result! In Hampton Roads there are thousands of gorgeous weddings each year with an extensive variety of themes, colors, and environments. One of my absolute favorites to be a part of are modern, colorful, and playful weddings that still have a classic and timeless feel to them! We were able to beautifully reproduce that in our fall inspired styled shoot at The Lesner Inn.

The open air, breeze-filled venue was the ideal setting for our contemporary decor and fun bride. The tablescape included a petal linen in shimmering off-white. We love textured linens for a modern bride! Palette of Petals brought the warm beautiful pop of color to the table. It still says ‘fall’ without going over the darker autumnal tones.

Champagne colored elements are always a favorite for fall and we used different shades of it throughout the shoot. Golden chargers with champagne napkins, chic place cards, and gold calligraphy on the table number and dessert descriptions were a complimentary touch to the warm floral colors.

The gown on our model was from a Hampton Roads favorite – Maya Couture. The ruching along the bottom of the dress provided the perfect amount of volume and femininity while the feathered sweetheart neckline worked with the playful concept of our shoot!”
