A Modern Spin on a Classic Wedding Venue | Wedding Inspiration for Ruffled Blog


When Ruffled Blog reached out to me to see if I would be willing to create a styled shoot around their gorgeous Maggie Sottero wedding dresses, I knew that it was the perfect time to brainstorm something chic, unique, and incredibly out-of-the-box. Working with Marla Lawson Events and Grace and Greenery, we planned a shoot that was a creative modern take on a historically elegant wedding venue. Graylyn Estate is a unique luxury wedding venue in Winston-Salem, North Carolina that is rich with history and gorgeous ornate touches, but it has creative bursts of modern touches as well. Using modern florals and avant garde styling, we had so much fun putting together this special shoot!

From Ruffled’s words: “You won’t find us straying from this chic, romantic wedding fashion inspiration in a European estate setting anytime soon. It’s filled with too much eye candy! From the epic flatlay styling of the paper and accessory details to the organic-meets-exotic tablescape to the multifaceted cake that enthralls all the senses to the gorgeous wedding dresses, the A-team of vendors below brought one heck of a modern romantic wedding story to life!”
