The scene above is pretty spectacular, isn’t it? A bride enveloped by all those garden roses and hydrangeas—nothing but gorgeousness. It’s from a Virginia floral workshop that Amanda Veronee of Anthomanic recently put on for local Virginia designers and we can only imagine how lovely it would’ve been to take part! The magic happened at Stevenson Ridge in Spotsylvania, VA, which, from perusing their website, looks like one beauty of a venue. (You have to check out this venue’s collection of historic buildings!) Big thanks to Rachel May Photography for letting us in on every last detail of this one!
Up close is even better…
Amanda tells us, Designers used a mixture of garden roses, roses, dahlias, hydrangeas, ranunculus, olive branch and silver dollar eucalyptus.
Stevenson Ridge was the backdrop for the on-site, large design experience. Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events was the planner for the styled shoot portion, creating a fun and eclectic mixture of muted tones with charcoal black in a romantic aesthetic. Paisley and Jade provided gorgeous vintage rental furniture pieces that brought the styled shoot together with a unique style. The gorgeous detailing in the calligraphy and stationery design, as well as the adorable cake table under the floral canopy make this shoot so romantic and lovely!
A soft cake that lets the florals shine.
Thanks to Anthomanic + the team below for sharing this workshop with us! We have a hunch it’s going to inspire some romantic events this spring…
