This sweet styled shoot is bursting with North Carolina wedding ideas and inspiration that blends the vibes of the 1920s with the 1960s, while even giving a nod to chic bohemian styling through its romantic details. When Rachel Red Photography delivered her first submission to us, we couldn't have been more delighted with its ethereal feel, and the use of one of our favorite Hayley Paige gowns and Jenny Yoo bridesmaids dresses. Set at the beautiful High Grove Estate, recently refurbished, this team of vendors were inspired by the venue's new neutral and picturesque ambiance. And for us, we are firm believers that when it comes to choosing your wedding venue, it should be inspired by a couple's journey. Perfect for the inspiration behind this styled shoot. The peaceful setting beautiful hosts the moody color palette of dusty blues, soft grays and an abundance of greens.

North Carolina's High Grove Estate

The recent renovation of the High Grove Estate, went from a dated dark character to an inviting atmosphere using light, airy and neutral tones. Stationary from Wedding Paper Divas was used as the "jumping off" point for colors and design. The color palette perfectly complimented the new décor and added an eclectic twist to the design, making image after image more personal and interesting, thanks Rachel Red Photography. The "bride" of the day was also the designer and eloquently showcased how a traditional venue can overcome the sense of being too aristocratic to one that is inviting and warm.

Moody Tones of a Color Palette

A Hayley Paige gown that oozes femininity with the designer's renowned talent for embroidery over illusion was certainly a show-stopper. Surrounded by the soft and moodiness of Jenny Yoo's gray-blue tulle bridesmaids dresses. Bouquets by Flowers on Broad Street were bursting with eucalyptus and greenery with neutral tone floral peeking through. The same blooms easily translated to arrangements for the tablescape to highlight the gray linens, china, and added character of the gold flatware.
