Our colour series wraps up today and we’re ending on such a beautiful note with this vibrant, Mediterranean styled photoshoot from Grit + Gold at the Rosewood Mansion in Dallas. There’s a wealth of exquisite detailing, from the luxurious floral runner by Lush Couture Floral to the vintage-inspired invitation suite featuring torn edged paper and elegant calligraphy by Clara Doyle Designs. Every single element presented has us blown away and eager to pin all the pretty (wait until you see the beyond stunning cake by Jar Cakery)! Taylor Lord was there to capture the entire swoon-fest, delivering the most gorgeous images!
From Grit + Gold: Inspired by the artistic traditions of Europe, we took our vibrant palette of deep jewel tones, terracotta and heavy greenery to execute a lush and moody rendering. The Rosewood Mansion with its 16th century Renaissance influence created the perfect backdrop for our design. Our tabletop consisted of wood and steel constructed tables paired with upholstered chairs from AFR. All tabletop décor was kept clean and simple so not to compete with our terracotta stucco backdrop and ornate floral table runner. We used Versace dinnerware from POSH along with Pure stemware and beautiful Cutipol Rondo gold flatware. The floral runner by Lush Couture Floral was a dream! Full of color, movement and depth the runner poured from the mouth of a terracotta tilting pot and cascaded down to the ground. Our invite suite was beautiful executed by Clara Doyle. With torn linen paper edging, the suite played nicely into our natural feel and Mediterranean influence as well as paired beautifully with the jewels of Shapiro Diamonds. Jar Cakery perfectly captured the pattern from the pillows on our tabletop and we kept the cake floral minimal with a simple swoop of bougainvillea. The bar was so much fun to style. I love the natural, lived in quality of a good mixed cocktail. We went for a Mint and Walnut Julep with beautiful details such as fresh mint, walnuts, Italian Port Wine, figs and a touch of Belgium linens. Our beautiful model was dolled up by Wendy Zerrudo with a soft updo which was later was dropped for romantic waves. Our dresses from Winnie Couture were the sight of sophistication and romance with soft detailing in lace cap sleeves, intricate backing and soft silhouette lines.
