Styled Shoot: “Sweetness of the South” Bridesmaids’ Luncheon

Photographer Nicole Ryan recognized the significance of the smaller, pre-wedding festivities for friends and family of the bride and groom. “We decided to stage a lifestyle shoot that revolves around a very important but often neglected pre-wedding party: the bridesmaids’ luncheon.” She and several vendors came together for an amazing styled shoot that boasted pretty details from start to finish. Perfectly baked confections, elegant tea cups, refreshing cocktails, beautiful blooms and the right touch of Southern hospitality could be seen throughout. When planning for this drop dead gorgeous bridesmaids’ luncheon, Nicole Ryan Photography and designer Maureen Stevens knew that glamour and beauty would play a huge part in their soiree. Even the food, beautifully plated by Crave Catering, had a unique, artistic appeal. We think the ladies of this lunch, made up with gorgeous hair styles by Roar Salon and cosmetics by Makeup by Adrienne, looked stunning as they sipped on champagne mimosas. With a celebratory palette of mint and gold, every  handmade detail and DIY  design by Maureen Stevens from The Inglenook Decor perfectly complimented the quintessential Southern backdrop of The Plantation House. This styled session was the definition of true Southern sweetness!
