Elegant Pastel Wedding Inspiration Straight Out Of A Fairytale

Elegant Pastel Wedding Inspiration by Christy Wilson Photography 22

This elegant and enchanting styled shoot from Randi Events is straight out of a fairytale.

First of all it’s set in the grounds of a castle (in Nashville, no less!), there’s also a whimsical, secret garden vibe, a beautiful blogger bride to be and her dapper beau, pretty pastel pink and blue hues and a dreamy taupe, tulle wedding dress that would give Cinderella a run for her money!

I’m obsessed with the romantic outdoor dining set up, which is draped to perfection and would make for the most intimate and memorable post-nuptial meal surrounded by your nearest and dearest.

From The Planner

Grey Boroff of Randi Events explains: 

One of my main goals in this shoot was to incorporate the romantic and dreamlike feel that The Castle reflects.The Castle is an exquisite location, set just a few miles from the heart of downtown Nashville. The venue, built in the 1920’s is brimming with history. I didn’t want it to seem too stuffy, but I gave everything a soft touch. Enter, Christy Wilson! Her photography really captures the elegance of the space, as well as highlights the emotions and history behind both the stunning couple, and the exquisite venue.

The Design Inspiration

I knew that mixing stone and the warm landscape would give a fairy tale ambience to the Castle’s charm. This theme provided the inspiration for the rest of the design. Elements included the private whimsical pergola dinner, Jo’s Custom 3-tiered Cake, G Caterings homemade edible flower popsicles dipped in champagne, and our own DIY twist, the tiled-patterned escort cards.

For florals, I envisioned a full bouquet of white roses with touches of blush and flowy greenery. Lauren Atkinson from Lauren Atkinson Designs definitely exceeded all of our expectations for this shoot and helped create the WOW factor that every bride deserves!

The Attire

From the start, I wanted to create an enchanting head-to-toe look with features such as the gorgeous Hayley Paige wedding dress that flared out to a full, floor-length skirt. I fell in love with the beautiful gown sourced from The Dress Theory and knew the garden-inspired head piece was a perfect choice for our model and the setting.

The Reception Area

The whimsical feel continued into the reception area. I mimicked the range of hues with a sheer draping for the pergola, wrapped in airy greenery. The touches of blush and white florals from the bouquet appeared here too. The antique white washed farm wood tables were covered with a light blue and gold table runner from Nuage Designs.

The tabletop décor included antique gold candlesticks filled with light blue and white candles. Each individual place setting featured a light pink sea sponge charger from BBJ Linen. Above each charger sat a blue vintage vessel glass from Music City Tents & Events.  Each setting contained a light pink napkin held together by a rustic gold/stone napkin ring. The silverware was tied together by a sheer ribbon that accentuated the custom-made menus from The Dotted Line I wanted to incorporate centerpieces similar to the bride’s bouquet, and the elegant floral arrangements gave the exact final touch we were looking for.

The Couple

Our models for this shoot weren’t faking that amazing chemistry, they are a real couple! Hunter Schleicher maintains her own blog and inspires many women around the world with her story and positivity. Pictured with Hunter was her fiancé Cameron Premo, normally on the other side of the camera as Hunter’s photographer! He is used to working with his beautiful bride-to-be to try and capture each beautiful moment they share together. Melissa Schleicher, owner of Parlour 3 salons, styled her daughters platinum locks into a gorgeous loose half-up hairstyle. We loved how Hunter’s neutral makeup tones highlighted her natural beauty. It was the perfect look to complete the fairy tale ending.
