Friday Feature - Agate Inspired Bridal Luncheon Styled Shoot

One of the perks to owning a wedding venue is playing host to a variety of styled shoots. We have been so fortunate to have had so many creative professionals utilize our space for stylized shoots. It’s been inspiring to see the variety of ways our rooms, furniture and porches have been showcased. Are you thinking of putting together a styled shoot? Reach out. We don’t discriminate and welcome any and all planners and photographers to use our property as the backdrop for their shoot.

The focus for styled shoots is often the wedding day itself so when Brooke and I started brainstorming planning our own shoot at the house, we wanted to do something out of the box and different. Who says bridal luncheons should be boring and predictable? We joined forces with some amazing vendors to style a bridal luncheon that totally rocks! Pun intended. From agate decor, to wildly colorful details, this agate inspired bridal shower takes the standard pre-wedding gathering to a whole new level.

The highlight feature to our shoot, aside from our drop dead gorgeous faux bride-to-be, was the custom backdrop featuring the bold colors in a running splash pattern. A black cake with graffiti splatter and gold-etched diamond accent was the perfect addition to the luncheon’s festivities. And speaking of that drop dead gorgeous model, Jessica is an industry friend who is now an actual bride-to-be and we’re delighted she took some time to practice with us. 

We are thrilled this shoot was recently featured on Be-Spoke Bride and you’ll also recognize the pictures for a very soon-to-be-announced project from Orangerie Events. The idea of hosting a bridal luncheon isn’t uncommon. But the idea of hosting a perfectly executed themed bridal luncheon is and our hope is that this colorful and electrifying shoot can offer inspiration for brides hoping to take their bridal luncheon or shower to the next level. Be sure to check out the fabulous team of vendors who helped bring this shoot to life and a huge virtual hug to AJ Dunlap Photography for spending the day with us, capturing our creativeness and bringing along her adorable Ada Pearl for us to love on.
