It’s in the Details
Inspired by the stark moodiness and quiet elegance of a Rembrandt painting, wedding resource maven Bridal Bellhop gathered a group of top-notch D.C. area vendors for a styled photo shoot at The Winery at Bull Run. The centerpiece of a winery wedding, fine wine served as the muse for design elements throughout the shoot. Figs and pomegranates mixed with pops of gold created an air of luxe and sophistication. Such refinements inspire brides to envision a winery wedding beyond burlap and lace.
The cocktail hour display portrayed rich flavor, color and edible details. Pomegranate bruschetta, heart shaped figs and red wine caramelized goat cheese tartlets scattered across wine barrels. The edible delights and décor are effortlessly tied together with a fruit basket-inspired floral arrangement. Gold-foiled wedding invitations in the drawer of a beautifully worn hutch accentuated the ornate, quatrefoil pattern and merlot color scheme.
The farmhouse sweetheart table was styled with a luscious garland intertwined with deconstructed pomegranates and vibrant merlot blossoms. A collection of antique-gold picture frames and a crystal candelabra transformed into an exquisite floral vessel added a touch of drama to the table setting. The pomegranate champagne sparkler and gold china completed the luxe, romantic vibe.
A trio of gold macaroons, pomegranate panna cotta and mini cupcakes adorned a pink Victorian love seat in the heart of the vineyard. A chocolate cake dripping in ganache, decorated with lush berries, contributed to the theme.
The bride’s romantic Rembrandt look was achieved through a combination of dark berry lips and gold eye makeup, softened with loosely pinned curls. The high-lace neckline of her wedding gown added a touch of romance to the look, while matte black nails, a cascading bouquet and gold accessories created a sultry twist.
