I loved the boundaries that planner and stylist, Kristin Gifford, owner of The Gifford Collective, provided as direction for this organic wedding styled shoot in Nashville, TN. Kristin's black and white palette was chosen to highlight the golden tones of the hardwoods at The Reserve Venue at Fat Bottom Brewery. The challenge to design within certain parameters is always something that pushes me to think more creatively and design outside of my comfort zone.
I decided to create a beautiful organically shaped arbor with both light and dark foliages to play off of the selected color palette. I carried these elements through the space, creating a lush and wild garland to drape asymmetrically over Aero Bar's mobile bar, Henry.
