Woodland Whimsy: A Bohemian-Spirited Styled Shoot in Tennessee
Photos By Jewels Photography
By L. K. on Oct 1, 2015 at 6:00 am in Bohemian
Set against the verdant greenery of the Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, this woodsy, eclectic shoot fulfilled a long-held vision of photographer Julie Crawford, who wanted to branch away from the classic wedding details that she is so accustomed to capturing. “In East Tennessee, bohemian-spirited weddings are a rarity,” she says. “I wanted to create a dreamy, non-traditional nuptial setting that reflected my own personal aesthetic.”
Blush blooms, mismatched floral china, and a subdued palette of muted gold, misty green, and heathery purple gave the scene a soft and feminine feel, while succulents, eucalyptus, and an array of raw, glinting crystals—culled from Julie’s childhood collection of rocks—imparted an enchanting earthiness.
Featuring a wispy watercolor feather and deckled edges for a natural look, the invitation suite was hand-painted by Jessica Marie Clinch. Whimsically lettered envelopes were finished off with a potpourri of vintage postage stamps from Verde Studio.
Designed by David Tutera for Mon Cheri, the bride’s gown featured a flouncy tulle skirt and a hand-beaded lace bodice. The dress was accessorized with hand-hammered baubles from artisan jeweler Roots and Wings. A delicate floral crown completed the look.
Designed by LB Floral, the leafily beautiful bridal bouquet consisted of seeded eucalyptus, succulents, lavender sprigs, and an assortment of baby-pink blooms.
A foliaceous table runner was studded with rough crystals, including amethyst, rose quartz, and fluorite.
Julie’s beloved pup made a welcome appearance, leaving his mark with lots of slobbery kisses.
Signature sips included lavender-infused wine, coconut-infused lemonade with a hint of lavender, and agua fresca with edible wildflowers.
