Inspired by southern peaches and adding a modern twist to lovely old world elements, this shoot took place in the small town of Mathews, Virginia. This waterfront community has a down home, southern feel with only one set of traffic lights and a single main street. It is in these beautiful quaint little towns that hidden gems can be found such as the White Dog Bistro. This stunning historic building has been many things over the years including various hotels and is now a newly renovated inn & bistro and became the picturesque backdrop to this sweet, pastel inspiration shoot.
A darling stationery suite sets the scene with a design reminiscent of wedding invitations from the 1930’s and 1940’s tying in perfectly with the delicate, pastel floral arrangements. Inspired by the gold geometric shapes of the flower filled centrepieces, the cake features the same art deco inspired gold detail on a perfectly crisp white frosting.
Embracing the outdoors for a wedding reception at dusk, rustic timber tables and chairs are set up on the deck with rows of festoon lighting draped above.
