Charming Carolina Elopement Featuring Poppies & Periwinkle
This beautifully fresh styled shoot is a romantic ode to Spring, filled with florals, blue macaroons, and charming pops of color, featuring shades of coral and periwinkle.
Designed by Radiant Photography by Sydney Danielle, she wanted to showcase a simple, romantic elopement that features shades of Pantone’s colour of the year, ‘living coral’. She says that they also delicately paired distinctive colour shades of periwinkle blue. The beautiful colours definitely make us think of happy couples in love during Spring time. Inspiration for the cheerful colour palette and details came from various places. There’s a soft, modern Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty vibe within the details — and what bride doesn’t want to feel like a royal princess on her wedding day?
“Originally, we wanted an enchanting woodland ceremony outside, but the huge down pour of constant rain had other plans that afternoon. Instead, we moved everything inside and put our talents together in a lovely, large enough, white washed bridal suite! When mother nature speaks loudly, and a couple is madly in love, the gorgeous union must go on! Let’s be honest, on wedding days, more times than none, brides deal with things not going 100% as planned. I am so grateful for such talented wedding vendors that can make beauty happen anywhere. The venue, Carolina Country Weddings offers a variety of style, from romantic, to rustic, elegant, classic, organic, or just down-to-earth fun and casual. This styled elopement was the perfect combination of all of the above. We brought the outdoors inside by filling the room with flowers. I think it’s safe to say that flowers make everything better! This is a statement of simplicity to show brides that they can have a lovely, effortless ceremony by just adding flowers. Our florist, Weddings with Barbara does not skimp when it comes to floral arrangement! We had an abundance of lush pink and blush bulbs, protruding coral poppies, and the truest shades of periwinkle blues.”
“The bride’s exquisite dress from Meagan Kelly Designs was one of my favorite aspects of this wedding. This gown exuded grace and charm with its one of a kind 3D floral design. The whimsical ivory gown glistened from top to bottom with pearls and lace. The groom had a matching ivory playful bow tie with a floral pattern itself. Actually, the couple Elle and Jordan are artists themselves. He is a tattoo artist, and she owns a bakery. You’ll see his work on her arms if you notice the whisk and rolling pin. She made our blue drip cake and fresh butter cream macaroons. We even had a semi hand made wedding invitation suite on vintage, hand torn deckled edge paper. Hey — when you read that Meghan Markle did calligraphy and designed wedding invitations once for a celebrity friend before she was a royal, it’s inspirational to put your own talents to work. I used a script font called ‘Steeleplate Script’ from an online company called Design Cuts to digitally type and print off our invitations. I also had fun painting our invitation suite with deckled edges in rose gold. I certainly have more admiration for calligraphers and wedding suite designers now!”
“Speaking of savvy, our glittering Jessica Simpson Style heels were a discounted steal from Ross clothing store. This just proves that brides can find and add elegance from many places if she’s shopping around. Our hair and make up artist, Glammed and Groomed created a sweet braided hairstyle adorned with periwinkle butterflies from UK artist, Flutter Designs. Heather, with the Whimsical Rose pulled the prettiest pinks, golds, and coral variations for our table scape and shimmering glassware. This romantic styled elopement just has me falling in love with Spring even more.”
