STYLED SHOOT: Every Bride Is Beautiful at Cardwell Manor

We were thrilled to provide the dresses and accessories for an amazing, multi-bride styled shoot this summer held at the gorgeous Cardwell Manor, a venue rich in character and steeped in history. Knoxville Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer Amber Lowe, of Amber Lowe Photo, beautifully captured SEVEN different brides in SEVEN completely different bridal looks against the gorgeous backdrop of Cardwell Manor. Each bride had a distinct look, complete with beautiful hair by on-location stylist Christi Piontkowski of Knoxville Bridal Hair. Makeup Artist Lindsay Conroy of The Skin Lash & Lab made sure every bride was flawless. And the breathtaking florals were courtesy of the talented Dustin Manning of D Garden Floratique. All the gorgeous models combined with our fabulous dresses and accessories plus the stellar efforts of all the other bridal pros involved made for a heavenly, inspirational photo shoot! Sigh.

Any venue boasting a #bomb pink bathtub immediately jumps to the top of the list of our fave wedding locales. Especially when they styled an amazing shot such as this! Our lovely bride is wearing a soft English Net Grecian gown in Misty Rose/Sand/Nude by Sincerity from Justin Alexander. A matching plunging V-neckline and back adds romance to this comfortable jersey lined gown. This look pairs perfectly with vibrant hair, a glass of Rose, and, of course, a Tiara.

A vision in lace, this bride is wearing a stunning v neck full-length bridal gown, in ivory, with a semi-cathedral train. Check out the cool hanging garland and billowy white drapes, oh, and that BOUQUET! So romantic!!

Captured in a moment of reverie while sitting in a lovely vintage chair, this bride is wearing a drapey, full-length satin gown with lavish beading at the shoulders.

A two-piece wedding dress? Why, yes, please, if it is composed of modern lace, with three-quarter sleeves and beautiful like this one by Justin Alexander.

A classic strapless sweetheart ballgown graces this beautiful bride. Loads of lovely viory tulle is lavished with embroidery and beading at the bust and the waist. 

Sleek and sophisticated and wearing blush pink, this beauty is dressed in satin with buttons to the train.

But wait, check out the racer back, which is….everything…

Feeling extra flirty? Maybe you’d like to consider this bold & boho three-piece bridal ensemble from Justin Alexander, which features a bustier, wide leg pants and an off-shoulder FRINGE overlay.

Here’s a better look at those pants:


We adore this bridal braid with a delicate intertwined hair vine.

A view of the porch at Cardwell, with all the gorgeous brides, and a ton of amazing florals. Swoon!

There are interesting antiques and artwork at every turn. Cardwell Manor makes an amazing canvas for any wedding.

Wedding day makeup needs to be perfection. Regard perfection:

The perfect bouquet sets the stage for your wedding day look, like the bountiful bundle of fall toned florals paried with sprigs of greenery below:


Thank you to all the models, and the wedding professionals who made this day happen.
