In December, I partnered with Pinehurst Photography to plan a Nordic Winter Wedding inspiration photoshoot at 305 Trackside in Southern Pines. Patti of Indigo Earth Events designed the event, contributing decor from her rental inventory as well as creating two custom cakes.
The photoshoot featured four bridal models showcasing different gowns accessorized with fur stoles and lush bouquets. Initially, we were only going to featured the brides, but at the last moment, my own husband jumped in to model as a Groom when we realized he had the perfect suit to complete the look. He was always interested in modeling when he was younger, so this was his time to shine! He has been my muse and model since I began my photography journey so it was great to include him in this styled shoot.
The Nordic inspiration brings together rustic style and Scandinavian design details, creating a unique blend of modern & rustic, a perfect fit for the venue's urban vintage vibe. The primary color palette was navy, gold, and greenery accented with textural details like fur and distressed wood decor. Patti of Indigo Earth Events created a custom designed and hand painted Deer Skull Cake, seen on the bar cart. it was a red velvet cake and we all got a sample of it at the end of the shoot! Absolutely delicious as well as a work of art!
The floral bouquets and details featured evergreens and winter whites plus silvery eucalyptus, mosses, and even feathers! The wild, garden style bouquets add whimsy and a bohemian flair to the brides' classic gowns. Much like the table top and lounge designs, the fashion and florals effortlessly blend classic vintage bridal trends and boho style.
305 Trackside's exposed brick & beams, original wood floors and industrial chic design make it one of Southern Pine's most unique wedding venues and the perfect place for this non-traditional wedding styled shoot. This creative spin on rustic winter style showcases the venue's flexibility and new ideas for local couples to use in their own weddings at 305 Trackside or other venues.
My favorite part of the photoshoot was getting to work with local Southern Pines wedding professionals and photographers and getting to see their talent first hand. Partnering with Pinehurst Photography, 305 Trackside, & Indigo Earth Events was such a treat, I hope we can do it again!
