Thank God it’s Friday and one day closer to Valentine’s Day. In the spirit of the season, we have this epic medieval wedding inspiration shoot inspired by one of our favorite shows- Game of Thrones. Inspired by GOT and eras past, this shoot by IDA ROSE Events welded rich jewel tones, a seductive mix of metals, flowers, faux fur and velvet to create a sexy, romantic and majestic fantasy. Fauquier Springs Country Club was the perfect venue with its rolling acreage and the moody, crisp and cool air adding some much needed drama to the already epic shoot.
From Laura of IDA ROSE:
For the invitation, we chose handmade paper with burnt edges and simple Burgundy calligraphy by The Blue Haystack.The wedding cake, by Sugar Studio, featured a clean white base, gold foil, and extravagant burgundy berries and roses. The bridal bouquet was lush, wild and simply divine. Feathers, wild greens, gradient red and white roses, and unique floral details created an oversized, cascading masterpiece. A beaded ivory BHLDN gown, reminded us of the fierce Khaleesi, while the groom went rustic and confident, in a tweed vest, gray slacks and brown leather boots. The bride’s hair was intricately braided, her makeup shimmery and sexy, while the groom’s hair was smoothed back from his angular face. Everything came together for a truly timeless shoot.
The lounge area was certainly fit for a King and Queen. Velvet, fur, glass, brass, wood and leather elements added to the luxurious setting. Decanters of red wine, black tapered candles, dark and dramatic florals, and a delectable spread made the space look absolutely bountiful. Game of Thrones frequently reminds us that women are beautiful, powerful creatures and always deserve a throne…so not one, but two gorgeous leather hooded throne chairs framed the open space. Vintage barrels, and vibrant red and pink statement flowers featuring roses, ostrich feathers and antlers drew attention to the regal couple gazing into the distance, perhaps admiring Winterfell?
