Modern Elegance (19)

MunaLuchi Bride Magazine Fall 2017 Feature – Modern Elegance Styled Shoot!

Read all about the design elements and inspirational details in this stunning “Modern Elegance” Styled Shoot – featuring the work of MunaLuchi Coterie members Sheronda Seawright Photography, event design and florals by Event Loft, and Hair & Makeup Artistry by Just B Beautiful.


Sheronda Seawright Photography – “Modern Elegance took place at the lovely outdoor location of Tyler Gardens. Eilena with Event Loft did a spectacular job pulling in soft white floral to compliment the greenery of this perfect venue. Some of the highlights include the stunning floral ceremony ring and mirrored aisle runner designed by Event Loft, the elegant floating bridal cake designed by Desserts By Dana, the heavenly white floral arrangements for the ceremony, as well as the reception and cocktail tables. Also, the bold pops of color in the bride’s blue Badgley Mischka shoes and groom’s blue suit and tie for their first look commands attention. To top things off, what says elegant better than a mirrored acrylic invitation and menu designed by April Lynn Designs?”

Eilena from Event Loft (Design & Floral) – “Modern Elegance was initially going to be called Garden Luxe, but as I sat down and planned the design with the rest of the team the shoot evolved into Modern Elegance. After visiting the venue Tyler Garden all I could visualize was all white with hints of silver which is bold within itself but it turned out beautifully. The inspiration came from digging deep to show a look that is uncommon in this twists that you would never expect but at the same time, it can be easily replicated for a wedding or special event without going too crazy with inspiration.”

B Wilson from Just B Beautiful (Hair & Makeup) – “I often gather inspiration from many of my real life luxury Just B Beautiful brides and this shoot is no exception. Many of today’s brides are not only making dress changes for the reception but also changing up their entire beauty look as well. For the ceremony portion I decided to give the ‘bride’ a true bridal look taking cues from the innocence of the beautiful Pronovias gown. The floral details and cathedral length veil were perfect accessories to the sleek strait hair and youthful makeup look. 
For the second look again taking from my real life brides, it’s time to party! Giving our bride a truly modern, sleek, and sexy intricate updo that plays on the deep-v and details of this stunning reception. Also not to be upstaged by his bride for our ‘groom’ Kenny we decided to give him a sleek dapper hair look that paired so very well with his navy blue suit. The overall look is clean, flawless skin, with bold details that truly makes this a Modern Elegant look.”

This Groom Rocked a Coral Tux + We’re Obsessed- Style Me Pretty

By Christine Diaz ~ I didn’t know I loved coral tuxes until today. Arielle Fera Events put together this fresh and stylish wedding inspiration session in warm pink hues with an incredible team of vendors, and Emily Wren Photography brought it all to life with her skill behind the lens. Trousseau Style absolutely nailed the wedding fashion with the Groom’s statement ensemble, the Bride’s elegant Erin Cole gown, and her lace Bella Belle shoes. May I suggest forwarding your Groom this stunning gallery as a subtle style hint?

From Emily Wren Photography… For this styled shoot, we wanted to highlight Tyler Gardens – a new wedding venue in Bucks County, Pennsylvania – and its elegant charm. The historic mansion and 3-tiered gardens drip with old world charm, surrounded by wrought iron gates, elegant statues, stunning fountains, and romantic landscaping. A fairytale venue to say the least – especially when it is covered with florals by Faye and Renee Floral Design!

It was also really fun working with Olvia Caridi (you might recognize her from last season of the Bachelor). I loved how perfectly Olivia’s soft blush Erin Cole Bridal wedding gown and the Groom’s coral toned tux matched the rich warm hues of the garden’s stone walls and staircases! Every last detail of this styled wedding shoot flowed together and perfectly fit our warm summer color palette.

Visiting this historic garden is like taking a step back in time to an era of elegance. Our sweetheart table looked just right nestled into the multi-tiered landscaping at Tyler Gardens in the golden evening light! I loved the hand dyed table runner by Hello, Bird. and the wild climbing florals by Faye and Renee Floral Design, which were perfectly and organically styled by Arielle Fera Events! We were simply overwhelmed with the beauty and variety of locations to shoot, and despite the 90 degree heat, we spent hours running around capturing it all and loving every minute of it. It was such a joy working with an incredible group of wedding vendors!

Autumn Garden Elopement- The Perfect Pallette

It’s friday m’dears! And since we’re officially into fall, we thought we’d serve up your daily dose of pretty by way of this autumn inspired elopement. Event designer Forever Love Events made magic happen on this day and with these lush and lovely blooms by Ram Floral Be still my heart. Mariya Stecklair Photography, these images are everything!

From the team, “The idea behind this shoot, was to capture a sweet and romantic, intimate elopement in a purple garden that carried a regal charm. To pull out some elegant, unique elements and interweave with a more homelike, welcoming vibe.”

 Autumn Garden Elopement

“With many shades of burgundy being strong contenders for fall, a warmer purple palette felt like a fresher take on a warmer fall color.”

 Autumn Garden Elopement

“With fall being a season of brisk mornings with only slight touches of warmth lingering among the yellowing leaves, adding a purple tone was the goal to add some warmth.”

“The bird chosen to be placed at the top of the cake is the Eastern Blue Bird, a common garden bird…The floral and greenery detail on the cake is all hand crafted and perfected to be a hanging show stopper!”

“To stop over at the station and look at a framed picture of donuts with donut holders that look like candle holders…”

Venue Walkthrough by Wedding Lovely

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-164

Today’s venue walkthrough is of the stunning Tyler Gardens in Philadelphia, PA and our virtual tour guide is the Venue Coordinator RaeChani Wilson from Open Aire Affairs. Enjoy!

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR VENUE:

The Formal Gardens were constructed in 1931 by George F. and Stella Elkins Tyler to provide a landscape setting for their estate, Indian Council Rock. The four-tier Gardens were influenced by French and Italian gardens and feature varieties of flora, beautiful lush lawns, dramatic stone walls and staircases, gravel walks, fountains, and bronze sculptures. Tyler Gardens are reminiscent of a golden age of elegance with fairy tale charm.

See more after the cut!

WHAT MAKES YOUR BUSINESS UNIQUE?

This is a BRAND NEW venue in the Bucks County area. So none of your friends or family members have gotten married here yet! We are very excited to feature garden parties throughout the seasons as well as host fairy tale weddings.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-135.jpg

DO YOU TARGET ANY PARTICULAR NICHE?

There is a classic & whimsical feeling when you step into the gardens that just makes for a great backdrop for the Classic Garden or Gastby Bride.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-132

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE JOB?

I just LOVE each design detail that comes together making each client different. I haven’t hosted the same wedding twice yet as our tented pavilions are a full blank slate to really do anything you would like. We can go from full rustic to modern, & from pops of color to an all white wedding. Our clients can customize the look & feel of their event  venue with our blank canvas approach.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-148.jpg

HOW DO YOU HELP COUPLES CUSTOMIZE THEIR WEDDINGS?

We have more than fifteen sizes and kinds of tables, hundreds of variations in color and design of linens, as well as utensils and tableware in a multitude of designs. We also have different lighting designs  as well as a clear top to make your reception space bring in the nature surrounding the venue.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-127.jpg

DO YOU HAVE ANY FUNNY STORIES ABOUT A PAST WEDDING OR EVENT?

The funniest one would be when I had one client that wanted to have their puppy walk down the aisle with the rings. Things didn’t go as planned of course the dog ran right past the bride & groom into the field to chase butterflies. So part of the bridal party & myself chased after the little thief to get the rings to finish the ceremony. Photographer & most of the guests got it all on camera!

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-111.jpg

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED?

It’s really about what the couple envisions and how it makes them feel that day. I have a lot of the couples family members & friends voice their opinions but at the end of the day I always ask the couple what do they want. It’s hard to make decisions for everyone on your guest list. So go with what makes you happy!

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-134.jpg

ANY TIPS FOR BRIDES ON THE HUNT FOR A VENUE?

I always suggest to look for the vision of the venue. How do you want to feel on your day looking around and seeing all your guest mingle about? Your full vision of what you expect will be the backdrop of your venue. Also, go with what you want, not something your family & friends expect, it’s your day that will last a lifetime.
