Today’s luxury mountain wedding inspiration at the Lonesome Valley Resort in North Carolina completely changes the meaning of a mountain affair. This team of wedding industry professionals are an absolute dream team!
Bliss Wedding & Event Design brought all the beauty together along with gorgeous blooms for days by Heather Lily from Mayesh Wholesale, stunning paper design by Two Paper Dolls, the perfect rental items by All Occasions, darling stamped forks from For Such A Time Designs, and wait until you see the linens from La Tavola!
Where your jaw will truly drop is when you see the floral printed gown from Gustavo Cadile picked by stylist Beth Chapman who paired this stunner of a dress with a dapper look for the groom by TJ Bailey and bowties from Handsome Menswear. I adore that hair and makeup artist Vera Joyce created two different bridal beauty looks that could easily go from ceremony to reception.
Let’s talk about that incredibly darling welcome bag which happens to come from one of our favorite sites, the awesome duo that is the Wedding Chicks! There is nothing better then as a guest receiving such a thoughtful gift, especially when it includes some favorite local goodies!
To top of this wildly beautiful inspiration is one beautiful cake and dessert bar by Artista Cakes and the models from Ursula Wiedmann Models, well they are truly the icing on the cake because from start to finish they make this styled shoot feel so real.
With Carla Ten Eyck behind the lens snapping away it was hard to narrow down to our favorites. There is a whole lot of must see inspiration here!
From Beth Chapman Styling, The focal point of the shoot was the floral gown by designer Gustavo Cadile. I first saw the gown at bridal market in New York and when I learned of the venue for the shoot, I knew that it was the perfect choice! It is romantic, yet modern, and has just enough of the southern flair that the shoot was to exude.
From Bliss Events, We drew our inspiration for the project from the charming North Carolina mountain town which is home to The Lonesome Valley Resort and the unique floral gown by Gustavo Cadile. Our palate was focused on shades of blues and pinks that complimented the lush green landscape and darker hard-scape of the mountain side. An open air tent frame was used for the reception setting as to not detract from the beautiful mountain view. A custom tent valance by Boutique Tents was the perfect complement to the simple setting.
The floral inspiration was drawn from the project's color palette. We wanted to tell a story that was bright and lush, yet perfectly suited for the southern inspired dinner table. The floral and decor design was intended to be an enhanced extension of the natural mountain surroundings, so as not to compete with the beauty that Mother Nature had created.
