The Bowed and the Beautiful | Inspiration for the Bride Who Loves Bows

This bowed and beautiful wedding inspiration at The Meekermark is like putting a classy, adult spin on our childhood princess dream wedding desires! The talented Rhea Whitney Photography captures these lovely, light-filled scenes around the venue property that show off sophisticated feminine elements, luxe linens and organic table and chair décor from Avalon Event Rentals, all featuring the sweetest bow details. Overgrown installations of blooms in soft pinks, creams and champagne tones by The Senterpiece keep things soft and sweet through organic textures and romantic wedding design. Bering’s provides a stately invitation suite that is sure to make an impression and one that guests surely won’t forget seeing. This bride stuns in a Mikaella by Paloma Blanca gown from Brickhouse Bridal satin gown with bateau neckline and V-shaped Italian Tulle inserts on the sides of the bodice. Its chic satin belt at waist, asymmetric satin bow on the back and full circle skirt with pockets give us all the gown envy and pair perfectly with simple, romantic makeup by Hey Lovely as well as a low, effortless chignon secured with a delicate bow. For dessert, a two-tiered, two-toned cake design by Lane and Simple features organic textured details that we think are just to-die-for. Read on for notes from the florist as well as the hair and makeup artists about the style and design of this bowed and beautiful wedding inspiration made for our girlie brides who love bows. Cheers!

From the florist, Donna of The Senterpiece: “The design for the photoshoot at The Meekermark was a complement to the bow theme with the flowers in soft pinks, creams and champagne tones. The floral table arrangement was designed in a crystal compote with flowers including sweet eskimo roses, O’Hara garden roses, ranunculus, stock, hydrangea, Lisianthus, Peonies, champagne spray roses and dahlias. The garden window design was more freeform with flowers in complementing roses, stock, hydrangea with the smilax foliage wisping throughout the arrangement. The bridal bouquet was a somewhat unstructured hand-tied bouquet with an oval shape overall. We had a great time designing the photoshoot with all the beautiful weather outside!”

From the hair and makeup artists of Hey Lovely: “To even the model’s skin tone, we used a light olive beige foundation. Pretty lavender, plum tones and fluffy lashes made her brown eyes pop. A beautiful dusty rose lip finished the look. For hair, we chose a low, effortless chignon which added an element of romanticism.”
