Rooftop Romance | Inspiration

August 5, 2019

Styled Shoots

“Set at dusk on the rooftop of the trendy Hotel at Avalon, the bride’s delicate Berta dress from Elite Pour La Vie twinkled in the dusk with the city lights in the background, and Kendra Scott’s rose gold Kay pendant caught the fading light perfectly. Floral Ted Baker heels completed the look with an eye-catching detail dripping with deep tones, making the bride a vision of perfection from her flawlessly made face by Ellis Page to her toes.

The second-story pool deck was transformed into an intimate space with romantic details. With over 1500 inches of wispy netting draped with dusty pink velvet and peach tulle, the ceremony site brought both warmth and lightness to the clean lines of city architecture in the background. Florals from Mary Wynn of Amy Osaba brought an organic and intensely feminine touch to the whole shoot, from the ceremony to the couple, cake, and dinner- scape.

The reception table was designed with the ageless value of intimate dining in mind. Over 30 feet of wine-colored velvet spilled over the Arhaus table, anchored by the warmth of glowing candles and moody florals. Since the New Romantics are all about a shared, intimate experience, an overflowing charcuterie board was central to the table with a special focus on figs, berries, and pomegranates. Each place was marked with a hand-lettered vintage book and a rose-colored glass, ready for the merlot breathing in the matching decanter. A custom piece from artist Hannah Joiner set the backdrop for the scene, bringing the fall-toned color story to life perfectly.

A custom bourbon nightcap paired with a slice of wedding cake made for a dreamy end as the sun set over the rooftop. The cake, by Cake Envy, featured marbled peach fondant with a feathered edge and hand-painted gold leaf detailing, finished with lush florals. As for the nightcap, what’s more “new and romantic” than an unexpected reception look: a full-length white romper from Anthropologie paired with an avant-garde bridal boutonniere from the magical touch of Mary-Wynn!”
