STYLED SHOOT: Eclectic, Boho Wedding Inspo at Cardwell Manor with Julie Roberts Photography

Brides did you know there is a very special place in East Tennessee, steeped in history and rich with Victorian character, that is the perfect venue for eclectic brides searching for something extra amazing for their weddings? Regard the stunning Cardwell Manor with its’ 1890’s George Barber designed Queen Anne home and three acres of lovely grounds:

Cardwell Manor provides a beautiful backdrop for any type of event but most especially for weddings. And, it was the PERFECT setting for a recent Eclectic Styled Shoot utilizing the skills of the many wedding pros who worked to make this inspirational wedding a success. Julie Roberts Photography truly captured the lovely details of this hundred year old property and the moody, boho vibe of the wedding. All the elements which make up a picture-perfect wedding were there: a darling couple, the picturesque venue, a talented photographer, glorious floral arrangements, the most stunning dress & accessories, beautiful tuxes, on point hair & makeup, and delicious food. Yay!

The photo shoot was an engaging and eclectic mix of bohemian and traditional. The pairing of vintage style combined with modern touches highlights the charm and personality of the property, while showcasing the versatility of the venue as a whole. This co-mingling of styles accentuates not only the renovated 1890’s Victorian Manor and upgraded grounds, but also the skills of the many vendors that worked to make this decadent shoot possible. And it demonstrates how an eclectic wedding absolutely rules!

D Garden contributed the absolutely breathtaking & unique floral elements in a traditional Victorian color palette of mustard, vibrant red tones, and varying shades of greens for the shoot.

The lavish bouquet includes tons of greenery which makes the bold colors of the floral elements pop!

How sweet are these bold little bouts?

The lovely bride stuns in a vintage-inspired, bead encrusted, lavish gown by Justin Alexander from The Gilded Gown. (BTW: This incredible gown is currently available at a 50% discount!) The groom rocks a modern cut navy tux with wine tie and tweed vest from the premier local tux service Regal Tuxedo,

We are in love with the intricate details of this wedding dress, aren’t you? Just look at all those beads!

We have to say, this adorable couple looked right at home at the Manor no matter where they stopped to pose; among the hedge rows, gracing the front porch, in front of the floral fountains or posing on the glorious staircase.

The swags of greenery and flowers just blow our minds. Wow!

Awwww!!!

The beautiful bride looked FLAWLESS thanks to Makeup Artist Lindsay Conroy from LE Skin & Lash Lab, Hair Stylists from Rock Paper Hair and Personal Styling by Mallori Brooke. (And dress and accessories from The Gilded Gown of course!)

B & G Catering contributed the coolest geode wedding cake, illustrating that modern touches compliment a vintage setting in the best possible way.

We were thrilled to provide the gorgeous gown and bridal accessories for this amazing styled shoot.

We are honored to be part of a community of such talented wedding pros, 

who work hard to make brides’ dreams come true every day.

BRIDAL STYLE: Luminous, Glowy Skin for Your Wedding Day #LuminousBride #bridalmakeup

As a bride we know you want a glowy, fresh complexion for your wedding day, right? And, starting with luminous skin will make any makeup you apply on your special day look even better. So, we’ve sourced some fabulous tips to get your face in tip-top shape!

1. Exfoliate!

Start exfoliating several months before your wedding to get truly radiant skin. The best exfoliators contain lactic acid, like DR. BRANDT SKINCARE’s Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator ($79 at Sephora), a scrub formulated with aluminum oxide crystals and soothing botanicals to polish away dead skin cells, provide a radiant, healthy look, and smooth skin’s texture. You’ll be amazed at the maximum results you’ll achieve in minimal time. Want even better results?  Visit a dermatologist where you can get you major improvements for your skin, since their products contain a higher concentration of glycolic acid than at-home treatments provide.

 

2. Detox!

Whatever you put IN your body, shows on the OUTSIDE. So it makes sense to detox your body to help eliminate any toxins and thereby benefit your skin. The best ways to clean up your interior? Start by drinking tons of water each and every day. Fill up the crisper in your fridge with lots of fruits and veggies, and nosh on them every chance you get. Those nutrients will save your skin! Cut back on everything fun including sugar, salt and alcohol. Hey, it’ll be worth it! (And we did just say “cut back,” not “eliminate.” You still got to enjoy life!) If you want to get real serious about detoxing, we suggest juicing. Juicing for Beginners is a great place to start.

 

Eat your greens, drink your water and cut back on the margaritas to achieve a naturally beautiful face for your fiancee to adore!

3. Vitamins!

Vitamins for skin are key, especially vitamin C. Applying Vitamin C to your skin is the best way to achieve a bright, even complexion, notes Erin Ferrill, East Coast educator for HydroPeptide. “The brightening qualities of this well-known vitamin make it the perfect companion for anyone struggling with age spots, sun damage or those who just want a makeup-free pick me up,” Ferrill says. For a true vitamin-taking/skin-enhancing win, take both vitamin C and vitamin E together. This powerhouse combo has been shown to increase the ability of the skin to protect itself from sun damage. “While this is no excuse to ditch the sunscreen, it is a great way to give your skin a fighting chance against the damaging rays of the sun. Look for products that combine vitamin C with gentle exfoliants and natural skin brighteners like bearberry, licorice, mulberry and brightening peptides.”

4. Chill out!

We love this super simple trick. Sucking on a cube of ice chills all of the millions of cells in your cheeks and lips, increasing circulation, and resulting in plumper, more rosy-looking skin! Annie Tevelin, founder of SkinOwl, says, “This is a great glow-fix mid-dinner or before taking a picture to restore fatigued skin to a more peaches and cream complexion.”

5. Makeup!

Achieve the “lit from within” look with the help of radiance-enhancing makeup products. Start by applying an illuminating cream under your makeup, like Becca Backlight Filter Primer ($38 at Sephora). Use TARTE Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 – Rainforest of the Sea™ Collection for a glowy and flawless look lasting for up to 12 hours. Finish with some bronze contouring, a little rosy blush and some illuminator swept across the tops of your cheekbones. Or better yet, find a local makeup artist to transform you into the very best version of yourself. In Knoxville we recommend Bangs and BlushSouthern Sirens, or Southern Belle Beauty!

 

All brides glow on their wedding days, and you will to. The happiness and joy you feel as you marry the love of your life provides more brilliance to your beautiful face than any tips we dish out ever will. But, a little prep never hurt.

 

REAL WEDDING: Rustic Boho Ceremony in East Tennessee #GildedGownBride #TennesseeWedding

We are so, so proud of all of our Gilded Gown Brides. And we just BEAM with happiness when one of our own has their special day recognized NATIONALLY! Beautiful bride Tarah’s Rustic Boho Ceremony was recently featured at BridalPulse.com. Woo-hoo! Congrats Tarah! You so deserve the recognition!!!

Pinterest Rustic Wedding

We first met Tarah on the day she found her beautiful dream wedding dress with us. We loved learning more about her and her wedding plans. An avid DIYer and Pinterest Board Aficionado, Tarah shared some of her wedding ideas with us, like her desire to make dream-catchers from vintage lace. And her plan to have a rustic arbor adorned with hand-made ribbon garlands. It is so rewarding to see how lovely her projects turned out for her wedding. Tarah worked hard to make the wedding of her dreams and it is easy to see the love in every DIY! #SheMadeItHappen

Tarah complimented her boho theme with a gorgeous floral crown which incorporated her love of purple! Shanna Tate beautifully styled her hair, and her makeup was photo-ready thanks to Ren Allen! #BeautyTeamsRule

Tarah wanted a relaxed, bohemian atmosphere with a rustic feel. She found the perfect setting for her day at The Millstone, a wedding venue nestled in the picturesque countryside of Limestone, TN. The grounds are filled with natural landscaping, plus the restored antique mill provided a unique ambiance for a truly special day. Her walk down the aisle, under a canopy of trees, was stunning! Her happy hubs-to-be, Shane, watched with adoration. (FYI: Tarah and Shane were introduced by Shane’s Mother!) #ThanksMIL

Tarah and Shane make an adorable couple. Their happiness just shines!!! #TrueLoveIsBeautiful

We LOVE the “love” marquee letters that greet their friends and family members. We also LOVE that the lush greenery and florals by Food City prove that you can get awesome wedding day flowers at a GROCERY STORE! And that sign! Sigh! “Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, LOVE, gives us a fairy tale!” #YesWeBelieveInFairyTales

After the touching ceremony, it was time to CELEBRATE. We are very fond of desert tables, and Tarah and Shane’s did not disappoint with tons of cupcakes, pies and cakes. Check out the killer wood slice cake stands! #morecupcakes

One sure-fire way to tell that you are at a GREAT wedding? Personalized wine! Shane and Tarah’s faces are on every bottle! Cupcakes, wine AND dancing? This is a win! #GuestsGotLucky

No matter how much work goes into planning a wedding, it wouldn’t be perfect unless it had the most important ingredient. Love. Love was very evident at Tarah and Shane’s Wedding. Love between the couple was proclaimed in every secret glance, look and smile. #HerEyesWereShining

Congrats to this sweet couple on their amazing, well-planned wedding day! We feel sure they will have a very happy ever after!

Citrus Wedding Palette: Bright & Summery Wedding Color Scheme #CitrusWedding #CitrusPalette #WeddingStyle

There’s nothing brighter and fresher than the colorful shades of citrus: think lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges and tangerines. We love the idea of turning these fresh-squeezed hues into a wedding palette that’ll really pop for a summer wedding!

Set the tone with citrus inspired invites, like these cheerful cards by Lola Lee Invitations. They are the perfect way to brighten up the mailboxes of your family and friends.

citrus themed wedding invitation by Lola Lee Invitations

Going with a citrus theme is easy and can be affordable too. One way to save with citrus: Load up on piles of the summery fruit to use for decor and floral arrangements at the ceremony and reception! And, use masses of slices for dressing up your drink station! Plain ‘ole water looks pretty fancy with three hundred orange slices crammed in a pretty glass container. Plus the delicious lemony, limey, orangey scents will fill the air.

We love these awesomely simple table number holders: oranges paired with vintage post cards. #onpoint

orange inspired escort cards with vintage postcards http://www.weddingchicks.com/2013/09/20/vintage-destination-wedding/

Another idea we love is to use scooped out citrus fruits for delightful desert serving bowls. Like these refreshing looking Raspberry Sorbets in lemon halves. Whole and sliced fruit in tall glass cylinders of water work well as a modern substitute for more traditional floral arrangements. Even if you are using flowers, (which you most likely are!) the addition of colorful fruit adds majorly to the appeal! Brighten your guests’ senses with refreshing  IZZE Sparkling Juices. Our fave – Clementine. This sharp, summery tongue-tickler has just the right amount of bubbles to wake up everyone’s taste buds.

We love the vibrant, citrus-themed table setting by Bellenza, below, which perfectly captures a summertime feel with fruit-inspired table decorations. Visit their site for many cool ideas on how to incorporate and layer the tropical shades to make your wedding tables shine!

Fishbowl centerpieces with yellow and orange flowers

 

Another way to reinforce the summery theme is by wearing a luxurious, citrus-scented perfume. Try Jo Malone’s London Orange Blossom Cologne available from Neiman Marcus for $65, which is described thusly, “the scent of clementine leaves in the morning dew sparkles above a heart of orange blossom and water lily, transporting the wearer to a garden oasis.” Ummm, yeah, okay that sounds heavenly!!! Wear it for the wedding and anytime you spritz it on in the future it will conjure up wonderful memories of your happiest day.

For a romantic wedding day look for the bride, we suggest this lace stunner from Abree. Even though it features long sleeves, the sheer illusion fabric is lightweight and well suited for warm weather. We can picture this modern wedding dress sparkling in a citrus setting on a sun-kissed bride.

Bountiful bouquets bloom with beauty in yellow, orange and pink with pops of green…all citrus colors. Add in your choice of fruit to make the bouquets even more luscious! And, how cute are the tiny, citrusy boutonnieres?

A crate full of succulents, florals and oranges is rustic as well as stunning! Tropical flowers with touches of citrus and greenery are so pretty on these simple white and naked cakes. How pretty is the simple round cake with slices of orange, lemon and lime?

Best of all, going with a sweet, simple citrus theme is celebrating nature at its finest.

**Country Charm**

 

 

WEDDING INSPIRATION: Purple Romance from Lindsey Mae Designs and Blush Creative #PurpleWedding #WeddingOnFleek


We were thrilled to be recently published on Bride Link! The Gilded Gown was selected to provide the perfect bridal gown for a recent wedding photo shoot  held at The Standard, a distinctive event space in the heart of downtown Knoxville, beautifully styled by Lindsey Mae Designs and photographed by Blush Creative Photography.

The creative force behind the shoot, Lindsey had a clear idea of what kind of wedding she wanted: “When coming up with a vision for our styled shoot I wanted to create something that was different than most shoots you see this season! The Standard was the perfect venue with the natural wood floors & the vintage walls. When my ideas started coming together I was looking outside the boxes of normal flowers to find what would come in shades of purple.” 

Lindsey, along with her co-vendors, produced a stunning tableaux of dark wood, lush greenery, pops of silver, succulents, all shades of purple and DONUTS! Heck yeah!!!

Here’s a close up of the lovely, lovely hand-crafted donuts provided by Makers Donuts in Knoxville, TN. Lindsey wanted to find a fun alternative to a traditional wedding cake, and she nailed it with these blueberry confections!

An abundant swag of greenery coupled with two rustic signs, transforms simple folding chairs into a stunning focal point.

Romance and whimsy abound in the beautifully colorful styled wedding.  We adore how Lindsey utilized bold blues, plums, lavender, combined with both modern and vintage details and lush florals to bring her vision to life.  From the wood floors to the vintage walls, natural elements and purple details make this shoot an absolute dream! This spectacular tablescape incorporates all the elements in a stunning way.

The pops of silver and green really enhance the power of purple! We love, love, love the delicately hued china courtesy of Sassy Settings and furnishings from Anderson Rental Company.

 

The adorable couple! The groom is dressed to the nines by Prestige Tuxedo and, of course, the gorgeous bride wears a stunning English Net ballgown (designed by Sweetheart) with a darling net handkerchief layered skirt from The Gilded Gown. Oh, and that AMAZING bouquet is all thanks to Echelon Florist:

 

The beautiful bride, whose look was the artistry of the crew at Bangs and Blush:

We are so honored to have participated with so many talented co-vendors. Knoxville has a fabulous array of wedding professionals.

Rustic Industrial Winter Wedding in Tennessee #RusticIndustrialFarmWedding

__blushcreativephotography_img0164_0_low

Are you dreaming of a winter wedding? If so, we think you will be majorly inspired by this gorgeous styled wedding.

The creative force behind ZStudio Events, the lovely Morgan Zacheretti, recently collaborated with tons of experts in the wedding industry to produce a wonderful winter wedding shoot with a rustic industrial feel. Morgan explains, “I knew I wanted to do a winter wedding shoot, but after a site visit to Cedar Pond Farms, I knew I had to expand on their Industrial Farm style.  I brought in darker colors, black and burgundy, and accented with white.  Including classic and sometimes very simple elements when I style is something I always try to do.  In this shoot, simple elements were the all white place settings and antique lumber carts. This shoot was a dream and I owe it all to the vendors for helping me bring it to life.”

We think Morgan’s impressive vision was perfectly captured by the extraordinary talent at Blush Creative Photography.

__blushcreativephotography_img0333_low

Cedar Pond Farms, a beautiful Tennessee farm, located just 25 miles outside of Knoxville and 35 miles from Gatlinburg, Tennessee provided the striking backdrop. Cedar Pond Farms offers a unique combination of rustic and sophisticated: the farmland outside is rustic and added a natural, wintery feel to the shoot, the exterior of the barn exudes southern farm charm and the interior is exquisite and adaptable to many styles…just the right place for an East Tennessee wedding.

__blushcreativephotography_img0246_low

And, of course, we feel our well-priced Justin Alexander bridal gown is a luxurious choice for any bride.  Loaded with all the loveliest details including lace, illusion panels, AND ruching; this sweet wedding dress is a winter wedding WIN! [Remember: If you are on the hunt for your very own gorgeous wedding gown, please make an appointment to come visit us at The Gilded Gown!]

The rustic industrial style is evident inside the barn with the raw wood and wire twin stair cases shown below.
