The exposed brick, white walls, and rich hardwoods of The Bramble in Erwin, Tennessee, brought the industrial feel to this styled elopement shoot; however, the additions of crystal, delicate flowers, and a charming outdoor scene added radiant softness. The outcome? A good old fashioned elopement with a modern flair.
The Bramble sits in the heart of downtown Erwin. And its eclectic mix of history and small city life make it a unique venue choice. To kick off the experience, a sweet invitation suite features pink flowers and graceful gray script as a pretty prelude to the intimate celebration.
Many of the touches in this styled shoot are delicate, fine, and soft. From the boutonniere to the bride’s shoes, the small, refined details are effectual.
An assortment of pink, purple, and white flowers are nestled in a bed of greenery and dusty miller for a romantic bouquet.
Statement earrings match the bride’s sparkling ring for an impressive collection of accessories.
The bride is styled in a strapless A-line gown, complete with a lace bodice and long, flowing skirt.
The waist is embellished with a beaded belt and she wears a traditional veil complete with lace detail.
The groom wears a light gray suit and white shirt but keeps the look casual with an open collar. The couple come together in the delightful outdoor space.
Their elopement wouldn’t be complete without their trusty furry friend, who looks handsome in a bow tie of his own.
The bride’s makeup is stunning but classic, and her hair is pinned up in a wispy updo with tendrils framing her face.
Inside, the space is outfitted with generous candlelight and sporadic sprigs of greenery for extra color.
The tablescape is beautifully curated with metallic-inspired plates, gold flatware, and embroidered napkins.
To tie in the hardwoods, the table includes a natural wooden top and wooden reception chairs.
In an antique glass vase, a colorful flower arrangement serves as the centerpiece. It’s surrounded by ample crystal glassware, as well.
The cake table is too enchanting for words. A simple white table displays the darling cake. Three scalloped white tiers with gold are accented by two smaller alternating light blue tiers. Tall tapers anchor both sides for a romantic touch.
The cake’s details are exquisite. Hand-painted flowers and greenery grace each tier for a dreamy, fairytale-like design.
For another sweet alternative, guests are offered petite fruit-filled tarts and French macaroons in a variety of colors and flavors.
For a romantic exit, the two lovebirds hop in a decorated vintage car.
They put the top down and give their pup a sweet kiss as the drive off to start their brand new life!
This elopement styled shoot made the old like new again with its modern twist on classic ideas and styles. The Bramble was the perfect canvas to create this dynamic experience, while the décor, fashion, and accessories created a timeless look that can be enjoyed many years to come.
