Afton Villa Gardens' Whimsical Garden Wedding Ideas with Lance Nicoll, Leaf + Petal NOLA, Everly

Bringing you one of my personal favorite shoots we have done as Lovegood.

From the ladies of Ruffled, "Feast your eyes on this gorgeous watercolor delight! If you’re a fan of watercolors, pastels, or just love when colors harmoniously marry together, you are bound to adore this wedding by Everly Event Planning & Design. I love how eclectic and daring this shoot is, and it is just pure fun. It’s refreshing to see an array of colors like this pop and mix together; whether it’s through the watercolor bustier by Sarah Seven or all of the gorgeous floral arrangements with Leaf + Petal. Flirty spring romance has definitely blossomed in this shoot by Lance Nicoll Photography!"

From Lance Nicoll, "The designer’s vision for this spring styled shoot was whimsical, romantic and a little bit eclectic. Cohesive, yet slightly (and purposely) messy and playful. A pastel watercolor color palette and Afton Villa Gardens, a century and a half old gardens and ruins of a burned down mansion tucked away behind a one-half mile winding avenue of cathederal-like live oaks, fit the bill perfectly! We focused primarily on shades of lavender and lilac and brought in blues, mints, greens and pops of yellow for accents. The bride’s Sarah Seven watercolor bustier paired with a Theia multi-tiered full skirt was the definition of spring romance, flirty and fun! The yellow brush strokes in the bustier were brought out beautifully with the bride’s bright cannery yellow engagement ring and earrings."

"Feeling like a black tuxedo would be too formal for the organic, garden setting, we opted to put the groom in a navy tuxedo instead. The florals were a wildflower mix of french lavender, lavender snapdragons, peach ranunculus, blush garden roses, jasmine vine, light purple tinted succulents, blush wax flower, lavender freesia and airy greens. The large, freeform bouquet was perfectly overflowing; and, of course, a romantic, whimsical shoot isn’t complete without a lovely flower crown! The aisle of the vintage ceremony backdrop, as well as the cake table, were accented with an assortment of mismatched vases and flowers. The three-tiered cake took front in center of the tablescape and was the epitome of the vision. Accented with macaroons and wildflowers, the hand painted pastel tiers and amazingly detailed cascading fondant flowers made a swoon-worthy statement. The color scheme and calculated quirkiness of the shoot were completed with blue cake stands for the tablescape’s flower arrangements and blue watercolor stationery, including a sweet “You’re my favorite” sign."
