Elegant and classy styled shoot with a deep color palette of plum, navy, magenta and mauve at the winery Burntshirt Vineyards in Hendersonville, North Carolina
We happen to love wine, so when we saw this winery styled shoot, we fell in love. Between the wine inspired deep color palette, the romance of the vineyards and barrel room, and the fruit accents we can’t decide what we love most!
“We wanted to convey a warm, romantic, and classy atmosphere using a sensual color palette of magenta, red, blush, navy, mauve, and plum,” explained the shoot’s photographer. “Since fruit is a key ingredient in wine, we decided to use fruit in our design.”
With the winery as the main inspiration, every detail and design aspect from the day somehow tied into the vineyard, including the invitation suite. Both the save the date and the invitation featured a vineyard illustration and the plum color in the calligraphy and for the invitation envelope.
The plum color was then carried through into the flowers and décor used for the shoot. Both the bride and the groom’s look incorporated the color.
The bride was dressed in a stylish for fitting gown with dainty straps and a V-neckline.
“We decided to go with a sleek, classic design,” the photographer said. “The long, lace trail on her dress is what really sold it for us!”
It was paired with a pearl necklace for a timeless feel and a fishtail braided hairstyle for a more whimsical feel. The plum and deep colors were brought into her look with a cluster of flowers woven into her hair. It added the perfect pop to complete her look.
The bride’s hair flowers matched the bridal bouquet she carried. The bouquet featured plum, mauve and magenta flowers and was tied together with a plum colored ribbon that trailed down, adding to the whimsical style.
As the bride went to meet her groom, she was greeted by the man she loved standing there in a navy tux and a plum tie and pocket square that really made his look pop. The plum and magenta colored boutonniere was the finishing touch to complete his look.
The couple was surrounded by lush lawns and oversized trees where they met. The ceremony site was set up around them with white folding chairs and an ombre floral backdrop.
“I chose a combination of various florals, such as roses, anemone, and stock to reflect our romantic, classy and berry toned theme,” explained the photographer. “I decided to go with an ombre design, going from dark plum to light blush.”
Matching flower arrangements sat on some wooden boxes and barrels at the entrance to the ceremony site next to a gold framed mirror welcome sign explaining to guests it was an unplugged wedding.
The flowers all matched the bride’s bouquet, tying the whole look together flawlessly.
After the ceremony, the couple moved from one location set up to the next, each one showing off a new spot on the ground, but all tying into the romantic, deep color theme.
There was a navy vintage settee set up in the meadow across from the ceremony site that was surrounded with flowers and gave us the most romantic feels. The couple even found a plum colored wall to pose in front of that matched perfectly. Then, there were two velvet wingback chairs in a wooden gazebo that the bride and groom sat on for a toast with rose to the celebration. Because if you’re not drinking wine are you really even at a winery?!
The couple headed inside to the barrel room for a few more shots before taking their seats.
At the front of the room, set in front of a wall full of barrel and beneath a wine bottle chandelier was a vintage wooden sweetheart table set with two vintage velvet chairs that were custom upholstered just for this shoot!
On each side of the table was a floral arrangement in more deep colors and a mauve table runner that hung off and gathered on the floor. There were candlesticks in a plum colored and clusters of fruit scattered on the table.
The place settings were elegant and upscale, and of course kept to the color palette.
“With a classy look in mind, we chose clear and plum colored, ornate plates for the sweetheart table with white with gold accented napkins and gold flatware,” told the photographer.
The apple place card and fresh fruit on top of the plates were literally the cherry on top of the whole look.
The guest tables looked equally as classy with a deep plum linen and decorated with a single lantern and some loose greenery. The place settings added the elegance with white and acrylic and gold accented plates and silverware.
In the corner of the room was a wine barrel draped with a pieces of navy colored velvet fabric. On top sat an acrylic pedestal stand holding a two tiered cake decked out in fresh vibrant florals and fresh fruits in matching deep colors like grapes, figs, cherries and blackberries.
To wrap up the day, the couple headed outside where there was another dessert display of heart shaped jelly cookies on top of a wine barrel and another mirrored sign. Leaning on the wine barrel was a vintage bike dripping with flowers and it is possibly one of our favorite set ups from the day.
After grabbing a cookie – or two – the couple ended their day wrapped in each other’s arms with the sun setting behind them and the vineyards all around them. The petal toss sendoff may have been unplanned, but it was the perfect way for this day to end!
