Inspiration Shoot: Downton for Weddings Unveiled

We've got a mad crush on this Fall inspiration shoot captured by Odalys Mendez. The changing leaves on the trees create the perfect backsplash for these luxe details. The rich jewel tone invitations and deep blue velvet shoes pair perfectly with our Downton gown in light silver. The juicy florals look almost good enough to eat and that naked cake definitely is. Maybe, just maybe, summer ending isn't so bad afterall.

Inspiration: Downton at Boone Hall Plantation with Rachel May

Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina wrote the book on, "Old Southern Charm." The property’s famous Avenue of Oaks were dripping in Spanish moss and provided the perfect backdrop for our Downton gown. All of the natural, dreamy romance of the estate was underlined with soft ivory and grey details brought together by the amazing team below.
