A bohemian and artistic wedding inspiration shoot in Rougemont, NC
The inspiration for this bohemian, art-inspired, color rich styled shoot was multi-faceted just like any boho bride. As an avid art connoisseur acquires his collection over many seasons and through many life experiences, I wanted this shoot to have a curated, layered look. The setting features four custom oil paintings and a unique cedar arbor, as well as smaller, hand-rendered artistic touches like a metal leaf sculpture and fabric-wrapped votives, all created by local North Carolina artists. One of the oils is an original six foot tall folding horse screen, just the perfect size for our first-look shots, and since our bride grew up on a horse farm, all the more perfect! Hand-pieced runners of vintage lace fabrics casually adorn the cake table, and bench ceremony seating was made more comfortable with heaps of colorful vintage quilts.
All the details combine to create a lovely, eclectic environment that’s as free-spirited as the horses in the field. Allison, our bride, wears a relaxed yet glamorous chiffon gown with studded cowgirl boots, and seemingly declares to her groom, “I’ve been around, but in this moment and forever, I choose you. All of my past experiences and adventures compiled together make me who I am – unique, multi-faceted, and many-layers deep. My complicated side is balanced, though, with my fun-loving, free-spirited, spontaneous self, and as my husband, forever and always, you get the precious opportunity to experience all of me over and over again.”
It’s our hope that this shoot will inspire couples to creatively find ways to incorporate any décor pieces they love, whether an heirloom quilt or a quirky metallic owl, into their wedding day environment, making it a unique expression of who they are as they begin their happily ever after together. – Kristal, Farm & Filigree
