The romantic garden at Tides Estate was turned into a graceful set for a wedding styled shoot that's dubbed "Pure Opulence" by its creators. The word opulence comes from the Latin word opulentia, meaning "wealthy." It's a word that suggests extravagant excess, lavishness and over-the-top visuals. Take a look for yourself at these stunning details, which were expertly captured by Sobitart Photography.
The UpperRoom Events, a luxury wedding and event planning company, teamed up with the most talented and top wedding professionals located in New York and New Jersey. They encapsulated their love for simplicity with a mix of regality to inspire the modern day bride and groom with concepts and imagery that can be attainable for their personal wedding day. Here is what they had to say about this gorgeous styled shoot:
"Centering the shoot around luxurious colors such as ivory, soft gold and various metallics, this styled shoot proves that perfect inspiration and well-directed artistic work can create the dreamiest and opulent wedding."
Shoot location: The Tides Estate, North Haledon, New Jersey
Shoot theme: Pure Opulence
Color combinations: Ivory, gold and assorted metallics.
Favorite detail: There are so many details that we love from the "Pure Opulence" wedding styled shoot, but we are specifically in love with the cake design and the regal door backdrop. The opulent details symbolize how a marriage opens a door to new beginnings.
The luxurious centerpieces incorporated different vessels and components. The scenery was created in the beautiful gardens at The Tides Estate while the center of the table showcased three lush, tall centerpieces with draped crystals. We used ivory orchids, roses and hydrangeas and gold-rimmed multilevel candle stemware to create an opulent look. The tablescape included a lush floral runner of magnificent blooms that beautifully ran over one side of the gold Hollywood dining table.
The place setting consists of luxe damask chargers, gold flatware, ivory damask napkins and gold-rimmed wine glasses. A custom embossed cookie with the words "Pure Opulence" written along with an ivory sugar puff treat, which sat beautifully on gold and ivory china saucers.
Our stationery includes a deluxe and dreamy invitation and menu card that oozed sheer luxury. The menu card was a custom ivory silkscreen print with rich gold damask borders. The mirrored acrylic invitation had laser-cut damask edges and offered an elegant glass-like appearance.
Please share unique details from your shoot:
We had so many beautiful and unique details which included some of the most striking models, a gorgeous white and gold flower wall and a beautiful stilts entertainer. Our bride and flower girls were styled in intricate custom designer gowns. Our groom wore a bespoke suit, which had a sweet custom embroider under the collar that says, "Her Forever Love." It is one of the perfect ways a groom and bride can personalize and memorialize their wedding day!
