What a lovely day to peruse the gorgeous wedding of Hannah and Chuck! This sweet couple married in an uptown church where their family and friends gathered in their celebration. As husband and wife, they made their way, hand in hand, to the stunning Charlotte City Club for their reception.

Hannah chose a form fitting gown custom made for her by Modern Trousseau. The clean and modern elements of the dress were the perfect complement to the venue.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Bohemian Glam Asheville Styled Shoot

“The term “Bohemian” describes people who live unconventionally, usually artistic and whose lives are acts of free or regard for conventional rules and practices. During design and execution of this Boho styled shoot, we kept these characteristics in the forefront of our minds knowing that weddings do not have to be complicated or even “rule-followers” […]

“The term “Bohemian” describes people who live unconventionally, usually artistic and whose lives are acts of free or regard for conventional rules and practices. During design and execution of this Boho styled shoot, we kept these characteristics in the forefront of our minds knowing that weddings do not have to be complicated or even “rule-followers” to be stunning. Simple yet powerful details included an elegant flowing gown from Hayden Olivia Bridal boutique, tapas-style food from Catering by Corey, sure to make your palate awaken, signature grapefruit sangria cocktails, so delicious and refreshing as well as florals sure to make your jaw drop. The scene was dreamy, whimsical and romantic. Same goes for the overall design of the shoot; it was just that, a dreamy boho environment.”

From the photographer Catrina Earls

The invitation designer, Chambley from Redroot Factory and Kristen from Kristen Henderson Calligraphy paired up to create the perfect invitation, map and reply card using watercolors complete with our styled shoot inspiration, the cupid arrow….because, love is in the air!

The ceremony alter was creatively constructed of hand-made dream catchers that suspended in the air, by a piece of driftwood, and caught every ray of sun as it shown through the lace, beads and feathers. An easy DIY project completed by Candace from Mingle Events and Vintage Rentals. This ceremony backdrop was very artistic and unconventional, very Bohemian.

 Magnolia leaves acted as ceremony programs and the wording was so beautifully written it could turn anyone into a “hippie at heart.”

 Cupid arrows were displayed in a hand-made basket and doubled as escort cards all the while guests signed a guest book globe that beautifully spoke the words of a true free spirit, a Bohemian.

 Candace, of Mingle Events, also designed a gorgeous sweetheart table that paired wonderfully with a hand-crafted bench. The DIY bench seat was sweet enough for two lovebirds and was constructed from a vintage upholstered headboard. The table was adorned with yellow, green and deep blue glassware, along with cupid arrows with name cards adorned with gold calligraphy for the Mr. and Mrs. The table was completed with romantic white candles in brass candlesticks and a 6 foot floral garland created by Blossoms at the Biltmore, that dripped to the barn floor.  Rustic chandeliers, cafe lights and sun peeking through the slatted walls illuminated the space and created the perfect ambiance for a romantic dinner for two.

Whimsical desserts created by Ruth and Ranshaw were as tasty as they looked.

The groom was dressed to impress in a wooden bowtie accompanied by mix-matched cuff links while the bride was stunning in a Hayley Paige gown and fur shawl.

But, all eyes were on the Bohemian floral crown that was so lush even a day-dreamer would notice.

 To send the bride and groom off to their happily ever after was a canoe. Yes, a restored 1910 old town tripper with mahogany decking and white ash gunwales. Now how artistic, unconventional, dreamy and Bohemian is that?

Hayley Paige, head designer of the Blush and Hayley Paige bridal collections, made a jump start in fashion by interning for Nina Garcia at Elle magazine while attending Cornell University. She went on to work in ready-to-wear for Jill Stuart after receiving honorary attention for her 10-piece bridal collection shown during her graduating year. Eventually, her dedication to all things creative led to designing and styling abroad where she developed an appreciation for European influences.

Ever so eclectic, her designs capture a romantic and charming aesthetic that balances inner ingénue and sophistication. Her interpretation of worldly influences and desire to dress hopeful romantics, have provided a foundation for a fanciful and fresh take on bridal wear. Never taking herself too seriously and fully embracing the adorning history of the bridal industry, Hayley Paige develops her craft from an inspirational place of appreciation and enjoyment.

We cannot wait to have these new beauties visit us this weekend! Give us a ring to schedule your appointment – they are booking up quickly! ***Please note, these dresses will be runway sample sizes
