A Moody Woodland Styled Shoot
Oh my goodness, do we have a treat for you today! This woodland shoot is all about moody seduction and boy oh boy have these guys done it well! The muted blush pink and gold tones are to die for and photographer Leah Moyers captured the most precious shot of the a beautiful Watters dress in blooming pear trees, you are going to seriously swoon!
Here she tells us a little more…
Surrounded in a beautiful forest in Maryville, Tennessee is RT Lodge; a historic mansion built in 1932 transformed into a local or destination wedding and event lodge known as a “treasure in the woods”.
Inspired by an overgrown forest we styled the shoot with a slate blue, blush, and muted gold color palette. The table was accented with antique bronze candelabras and a gorgeous floral arrangement with beautiful white calla lilies, Queen Ann’s lace, white hydrangea, eucalyptus, and fresh pink peonies cradled in woodland branches and an overabundance of ivy to recreate the beauty and peaceful mood found deep inside an overgrown forest.
Our bride featured a 1950s inspired pretty yet edgy bridal updo and Aveda makeup with a dark plum lip. Her gorgeous Watters Wtoo blush gown was a feminine with beaded appliqué and blush pink tulle. The beauty of the dress was captured in the blooming Tennessee Bradford Pear trees.
Buttermilk Sky Pie made delicious Lemon Meringue, Nanny’s Pecan and Southern Buttermilk individual and whole pies for the pie bar accompanied by fresh milk in Diane Von Furstenberg steel blue stemware. The inspiration for the escort card table was the antique slag glass I saw for sale on the side of the road on the way to The Smoky Mountains. A by-product of the process of smelting ore, the blush pink opaque pressed glass pieces are unique antique collectibles that catch the light beautifully.
