The Florian at Mallard’s Croft – Nature Wedding At Its Finest
The daydream began for an elegant affair in Mississippi with an inspirational venue for the event planner, Tish Clay of Simone Elise Events. The Florian at Mallard’s Croft is a sophisticated wedding in the woods, creating an atmosphere of a glamorous outdoor private party. The expansive glass chapel provides a feel of an intimate forest wedding where the stunning 240-degree outdoor view seamlessly blends the outside with the indoors.
From first sight, the expansive windows invite one to get lost in all of the possibilities of magical moments for two. The stylist leans toward elegance, and the vision of the beautiful model Nefertiti in the dress from Unique Boutique & Bridal casts a flight of wonder, further enhancing the mood.
Elegant Chair Solutions and Ivy League Events furnished the ceremonial setting with a mix of luxe textures and organic elements, resulting in an elegant affair with a touch of whimsy. Dramatic views from jaw-dropping windows inspired dramatic decor, and Dixon’s Printing & Design followed suit with a wood-inspired menu card.
The finishing touch to the bride’s, Nefertiti, beautiful natural crown was created by hair stylist Scalptini and a classic look by makeup artist Kimberly Yasmine.
Classic black tones carry the mood of urbane sophistication, while the rich red and creamy peach roses impose a feminine touch. This styled shoot was an affair of yin and yang, his and hers and a dance of the masculine and feminine.
The Frosted Oven created this stunning and imaginative cake to match the visualized mood perfectly. The special effects of Paradise Productions completed the decor, all wonderfully captured in this elegant affair in Mississippi by Camille Leigh Photography.
