“We were inspired the wild, natural elements of this lakeside location as well as slow summer afternoons—the heat, sun-washed shorelines and our favorite sweet summer treat, the Georgia peach. For this save the date shoot, we created a look that was airy and free. Our couple, Rhain and Zack, who tied the knot (again!) at The Not Wedding in Nashville on July 18, matched that vibe perfectly!
We love the lightness of Rhain’s sheer maxi dress and the laid-back look of her waves and boho braid, which paired perfectly with a handmade floral crown. We also took inspiration from the lakeside location, which has everything from rocky shorelines to wooded trails and fields of wildflowers. It’s the ideal spot to sprawl out on a hammock overlooking the water or to steal some kisses on a hidden trail. The pretty peaches throughout the shoot are from The Peach Truck, which hauls peaches from Georgia to Nashville all summer long. The faded watercolor vibe of the save the date letter press by Four Hats Press reminded us of gorgeous summer sunsets—so irresistible!” – Elizabeth from Stockroom Vintage
The NotWedding is Something Turquoise’s favorite bridal show! Complete with dinner and drinks, an emotional ceremony and a dance-party reception, it has become a killer alternative to a bridal show. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the “wedding guests” get to hear the music, taste the cakes, and smell the flowers… while enjoying a night of great food, dancing and surprises, leaving brides-to-be saying “I want my wedding to be just like that!”. The NotWedding has four amazing shows left for this year ~ click the image below to find out more and to buy tickets today!
