Inspiration

This styled shoot provides the perfect wedding inspiration for the couple looking to celebrate their love with a touch of historic elements.  Incorporating rich tones of deep red, purple, and pink along with the contrast of black and gold, we're absolutely in love with the captivating details seen throughout the tablescape and decor! 

Here is what event planner Teejah Fitchette of Black Orchid Events, shared about the vision behind this shoot:

"We wanted to take both classic and modern elements to create a timeless love story.  The way we love is ever-changing, but the key elements remain the same. No matter the beginning of our stories, we all eventually come to define love for what it really is--a connection not bound by time or distance, but a delicate balance of what is old and new.  This historic mansion, once occupied by a prominent family in Maryland, provided the perfect setting for this love story.  Using color and classic modern flare, this love story is one to be remembered."
