Golden Hour in the Garden

Sep 18, 2019

Earthy tones paired with a boho style set the mood for a sunset styled shoot at The Andrews Farm in Midland, North Carolina.


In a lush garden, modern design met festival vibes for the dreamiest sunset shoot. Styled by two planners, the bohemian decor met with vintage influence under the perfect golden hour light.


“They put their two minds together to come up with an inspiring styled shoot that was truly dream worthy,” said the photographer, Amanda of Amanda Moss Photography.


Inside the house, the model lounged in a white satin robe with sheer lace sleeves, admiring the wedding gown that hung from mounted antlers on the wall.


The model exuded whimsical beauty in a sleeveless, bone-colored satin gown. It had a plunging neckline, open back and delicate lace overlay. Her sun-kissed, brunette curls were twisted into two space buns for an edgy half-up, half-down style.


She wore a vintage stack of bracelets with tassel details, and carried a bouquet of fresh assorted greenery, eucalyptus and blush and white roses. To complete the look, she added an edgy fringe denim jacket that gave us all the Bonnaroo vibes.


As the sun began to set, the team made their way over to the garden where a modern bohemian tablescape was set.


A black, white and metallic gold spotted cowhide rug was spread out on the grass, creating the ultimate laid-back vibe for this botanical dinner party. Six neutral woven poufs surrounded a low communal dining table, while modern light fixtures and suspended plants hung overhead.


During her design process, one of the planners found inspiration at a local greenhouse in the swaying plants around her. “


She quickly knew that suspended plants mixed with modern lighting was the direction she wanted to go,” said the photographer.


At each place setting there was gold brushed flatware, vintage acrylic glassware and mismatched navy blue and blush patterned napkins, wrapped in brown leather napkin rings. Mini succulents, assorted ceramic pots and billowing pampas grass were the perfect finishing touches for this boho-chic set up.


The floral design for the shoot was kept simple, mostly consisting of neutral flowers and an abundance of greenery that was found naturally throughout the space.


Once the sky was the same hue as the purple salvias scattered around the garden, the party moved over to where Side Bar Trailer Company was serving up craft cocktails on wheels. In a retro, navy blue cart under string lights, rose-colored mixed drinks filled gold-rimmed glassware, with dried fruit garnishes clipped to the side by mini clothespins.


Back in the garden, the space had been transformed with sleek wooden lounge furniture, plush pillows, potted plants and a fluffy ivory sheepskin rug. The model laid her bouquet on an industrial side table, slipped on her fringe denim jacket and nestled into a lounge chair, soaking in the last moments of the sunset and a perfect day.
