This styled elopement in North Carolina is like something straight out of my dreams. It is overflowing with unique, out-of-the-box, fun, and elegant details at every turn. The most stunning of those details are the real pineapple centerpieces which were painted gold! When I first saw it, I was completely and utterly blown away. I could go on and on, but I will let Libby Sarver, Lead Planner at Details Wedding Planning tell us all about the inspiration behind this one-of-a-kind shoot.
Having lived in the South almost my whole life, and a few years on the Big Island of Hawaii, I wanted to create a wedding look that weaved the formality of a southern wedding with the fun and relaxed nature of the islands. By giving real pineapples a small golden makeover, we were able to weave them into a formal, more subtle color palette and create a look that combined their fun and welcoming nature with the classic, elegant feel of a southern wedding. The theme continues with the couple’s attire. The groom is in a classic black tux, and the bride is wearing a lively ivory dress with an elegant, flowing skirt, an open back, and a floral lace top with nude underlay. A small drink station gives the wedding a casual and intimate feel, while the gorgeous, three tiered cake accented in gold feels regal.
I’d like to give a huge shout out to Libby and every single one of the incredible vendors who collaborated to design this styled shoot, particularly the talented Red Balloon Photography, who captured every detail so beautifully.
I hope you enjoyed this styled shoot as much as Idid. Here are the vendors responsible for bringing to life this “golden pineapple” elopement in North Carolina.
