The Southern Sparkle Team participated in a styled shoot with Stephanie Benge of Stephanie Benge Photography early this spring with some other wonderful vendors. Wildwood Wedding & Events Venue is a new venue located in McKenzie, TN. This old church is being converted into a stunning location for parties and weddings. The owners are still currently working hard to transform this space into something unique. They have even added on a covered outdoor space since this shoot. They even built the farmhouse table as well as the flower boxes just for the styled shoot. We love working with this husband and wife team, and are looking forward to working many more weddings/events with them in the future.
The main focus of this shoot were the breathtaking flowers provided by Essary’s Flowers and Gifts. They did a wonderful job creating the look and setting the tone for the shoot. We especially adored the hanging flowers. We wanted the bouquets to have a “picked out of a wildflower field” look.
We also teamed up with Rustic Rentals , based in Nashville, for the unique vintage pieces such as the china. They have so many one of a kind pieces in their inventory! I had a mini panic attack walking into their storage unit.
Once again, Arzelle’s allowed us to use two of their wedding gowns, as well as bridesmaids dresses. We wanted something flowy with a vintage touch, and these dresses did just that.
Kayla Scott of Kayla Scott Hair and Makeup Artistry proved again how talented she is with this shoot. It was a rainy day, and we were able to get some outside shots. The hair and makeup was flawless for the entire day!
Nina Dowell created our paper pieces including the invitations, menu, and favor signage. She always pulls through with some one of a kind paper products for us.
ComeUnity Cafe provided the food for the photo shoot. Not only was the food gorgeous to look at, but it was also extremely delicious! This non-profit cafe serves mostly organic, locally sourced, seasonal foods to all, including homeless of Jackson. Anyone off the street who comes in and works for an hour gets a free meal. Purchases are all pay-as-you-can.
A lot of hard work went into this shoot from all the vendors, so hope you enjoy these gorgeous photos!
