Styled Shoot: Modern Shabby Chic Wedding

This is a very exciting photo shoot for the Abby Mitchell Events team! Not only were we were thrilled to have been featured on one of our favorite blogs, Wedding Chicks, but this shoot is also the product of our first Intern Design Challenge. During the Intern Design Challenge, interns were put into pairs, and had the task of planning each other's dream wedding. The winner and creative mind behind this shoot was intern rockstar, Jenna Bezzole. We are so proud of her design concept!

The concept behind this feature was to create a fresh take on a shabby chic wedding without resorting to cliche design elements that are often used. We also wanted to show design aspects that were pretty and romantic, but also attainable on any budget! Jessica Yates Photography captured these beautiful photos showcasing the hard work put forth from our talented vendor friends. Be sure to check them out below! 

Artistry in Bloom constructed a one of a kind bouquet for us with beautiful pink roses, peach ranunculus, and all natural cotton. The perfect balance of girly and rustic!

The gals at Vivo Salon did an INCREDIBLE job glamming up our models, and helping us add florals to the hairstyles. 

Hand-painted cake tier sandwiched between tiers of strawberry shortcake, and cascading with fresh berries and flowers?! Tanya with Style by the Slice, never ceases to amaze us! 

Brides and bridesmaids were perfectly outfitted with attire from Norman's Bridal. The flowing Allure Bridal gown paired with the sparkly head piece was absolute perfection!

Wedding Design: Emily and Ethan

I am already all cozy and warm feeling inside just thinking about this wedding! Set in the sight of the groom's family lake house and in the early fall, this down-home doins' is going to be darling! 

With a soft and elegant color palette, the natural outdoor space will feel large and glamorous, but still totally comfortable and easy.

The layout of the space shows some really cool aspects. One being the hay bale couches covered in quilts and the other being the lace doily pennants stung all over the space with twinkle lights! I literally can't wait to see it come together!

A mix of centerpiece types will add some interest to the height and depth of the space while still maintaining the neutral color palette.

Stay tuned to see more from Emily and Ethan's big day this fall!
