We are so excited to share this Lulie Wallace inspired styled shoot with you that was shared yesterday on Ruffled! Riverland Studios recently launched a sister studio, Studio Adele, and we decided to put together a local styled shoot to mentor our newest talent and get inspired for the spring wedding season.
When we were brainstorming ideas we were really drawn to the notion of using only local vendors and Lulie came to mind as the main inspiration! Lulie is a local designer and artist who exemplifies contemporary Southern style. All of us here at Riverland love her gorgeous paintings – we pulled inspiration from her “tablescapes” series – and were so excited to incorporate some of her fabrics into the day.
The color palette of soft, warm neutrals and feminine aesthetic of her designs felt like the perfect compliment to the soft light in The Gadsden House. Whitney at Branch Design Studio did such an amazing job with the florals. We decided on ranunculus, anemones, kumquats (which are all around the Lowcountry right now!) among other gorgeous blooms. She also created a pretty amazing flower crown which of course we had fun shooting. We included vintage pieces of milk glass to add to the tablescape of florals and golds accented by a fabric table runner sewn from a Lulie Wallace textile.
One of our amazing photographers, Amanda, also happens to be quite talented with hand lettering after taking the Parris Chic Boutique Calligraphy Workshop. She hand painted the ombre peach and gold place cards which perfectly paired with the “Iris” fabric from Lulie. We incorporated more of the fabric by creating two backdrops using the “Iris” and “Bee” prints. This was a really striking and different way for us to make beautiful bridal portraits. Danesha with Swank Desserts created some delicious mini naked cakes adorned with fruit and floral toppings that complimented the “Chloe” table linen. By using the Lulie fabrics, we thought that it may inspire our local brides to use unique linens for their own weddings. Possibly being able to re-purpose the linens after their wedding as keepsake. To close out the day we decided to take our gorgeous models by Zero George for a little background texture and petal toss which was a fun whimsical end to our shoot!
