Be swept away in a beautiful display of contrasts with this shoot coordinated by Confetti Events, where the soft, lavish beauty of a French country wedding is placed inside the industrial setting of the recently restored Rialto Theatre. The textured brick walls, cement floors, and wooden chairs provided a warm, historic feel to the scene, while pale linens from Kate Ryan Linens and florals arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, and tulips by FH Weddings and Events provided an air of elegance and delicacy. The bride was clad in a dazzling gown by Anna Campbell, a unique dress holding both vintage and modern glamour with its silk and jewels. Swathed in a pretty palette of ivory, gold, and blush, learn more about this lovely shoot and how to make the look your own from the photographer, Theresa NeSmith Photography!
Upscale, French Country Elegance
TAKE IT UP A NOTCH
To take it up a notch, you could add more florals to the ceremony draping area and continue that down the aisle for an elegant and romantic floral aisle runner.
Couples who want an upscale, elegant event with lavish details, yet not in a typical ballroom style venue.
WHAT TO WEAR
The gown is the “Giselle” gown by Anna Campbell, who is an Australian based designer! Malindy Elene is the exclusive carrier for the state of Florida of these designs! The gown is a lace sheath gown with trademarked lace patterns and Swarovski crystal overlay. To balance the drama of the top, we did Haute Bride stud earrings to keep it clean and the focus on the bride.
ITEMS TO INCORPORATE
The French country chairs from A Chair Affair, Inc. contrasted wonderfully with the brick walls and lush linen from Kate Ryan Linens. They were draped in linen shaped like a heart and floral details for the Bride and Groom. Personalized miniature cakes by Two Prince Bakery Theater were placed atop Haviland & Parlon Collete Gold china from Magnon Jewelers. The ceremony décor was warm with candles and beautifully heavy flowing floral detail by FH Weddings.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
The décor we used in this particular venue created a unique contrast specific to this shoot. The industrial feel of the space mixed well with the elegance of the ceremony and table design. Be creative with your mediums, like using wood and feather details with brick and cement.
Keep it classy with a French 75 or other champagne cocktail, or even a bubbly bar!
