The Inspiration Behind the French Couture Wedding Styled Shoot

Styling a wedding (or anything, for that matter) is one of the things that brings me joy. So when I stepped foot in Postcard From Paris, the Venue last summer, I knew I wanted to design a styled shoot for this space. Chic. Blank walls. Black accents.

And a painting hanging over a couch that made my mind start clamoring for design inspiration in this space. (This pic I snapped with my cell phone does not do this painting justice.)

And so I set out on creating a Design Board that would encompass the mood, textures, and atmosphere I wanted this shoot to explore.

With an A-Team list of vendors, we did it. And you can see the original published shoot here, with more of my favorites here.

Designing simple, yet romantic and gorgeous weddings is one of the things I love most. So when you combine plenty of roses in muted blushes and pinks, a simple yet stunning ceremony setup, a beautiful venue, and an amazing team of vendors to pull it off? It's a dream come true. And to top it all off...one of your very favorite national wedding blogs features it?! {insert all the heart eyes}

I was thrilled beyond belief when Ruffled published our most recent styled shoot, and while you can see many photos of the shoot on their post, I wanted to show you even more for inspiration. And, ladies, remember...sometimes a simple ceremony set up can still make your jaw drop. Enjoy!

{Published} French Couture Wedding Inspiration on Ruffled

It's been an exciting time around here. Back in June, I designed and coordinated a gorgeous styled shoot with some amazing vendors both near and far. The ever-amazing Ruffled loved the styled shoot so much that they published it for us this week! Be sure to check out their post, and stay tuned for more images right here on Bespoken's blog soon!

In this inspiration styled shoot, we designed suspended cake tables for a little bit of something different. And who's to say that a wedding cake has to be a traditional cake? This delicious apricot crepe cake was amazing.

The lovely Swooned Magazine featured this editorial styled shoot, and I was so thrilled with the way it turned out. A little bit whimsy with a little bit charm, set in The Loft at Falls Park in downtown Greenville. And the dress? One of my favorites. See more over at Swooned!
