Featured weddings and sessions, resources, travel guides, and my own personal musings.
This editorial was held at the newly renovated Renault Winery Resort in Egg Harbor New Jersey and was inspired by the winery’s rich history. The winery, which opened in 1864, is one of the oldest continually operating wineries in the United States and was once the largest contributor of champagne in the country. The design of the shoot was inspired by the winery’s rich French history, but was designed to showcase the modern feel of the newly renovated venue!
The color palette had a neutral base of cream, champagne, ivory and white, with accents of peach and blush. The invitation suite and matching paper goods were kept neutral, in an all-white palette. Textured, ripped linen paper gave the suite a handmade feel. The bride wore a floral embroidered gown with a statement pearl headband. The groom wore a tan linen suit with grey suede shoes. The grand, castle-like feel of the newly renovated architecture provided the perfect backdrop for the ceremony setting and reception lounge! The floral arch by Twisted Willow Flowers was absolute magic, and matched the delicate vibe perfectly.
The reception space was a cozy setting with a family-style table, perfect for an intimate gathering. To soften the space, Clover Event Co. brought in honey-washed farm tables and cane-back chairs. The tables were set with ceramic plateware, gold-rimmed glasses and modern gold & white flatware. They were dressed with linen table runners and terra cotton napkins, which gave the setting a homespun feel. Pear and oyster accents were added throughout. The all-white cake was designed to reflect the bride’s white gown, and homemade pear desserts were served to the reception table.
