Raw Elegance Content Day
This day was nothing short of a dream. So, as mentioned before, we’re all about dreamy and magical wedding inspiration, which for me means mixing soft and romantic colors with untraditional textures and objects. Which somehow manages to look whimsical and wonderful instead of just plain wrong – in the same way that chandeliers in a barn are awesome, or black tie weddings in a field flows together . This combination bursts whimsical and pure elegance. It’s all about the contrast. And that’s what Sundays styled shoot is all about too – it’s called ‘Raw Elegance’ and mixes an offbeat mountain top vibe with softer elements like beautiful florals and a tulle gown skirt . The venue Granite Ridge Estate, which has a elective vintage elegant decor, is just the perfect setting for this bridal editorial by Kayla Capponi, Anastasia and Taylor.
Here’s some behind-the-scenes info from the team:
With an air of raw elegance, it was easy to mistake this bridal inspired styled shoot for an industrial romance set in a rustic dream that only modern lovers could inspire. The purpose of the shoot was to showcase a less traditional and more adventure but romantic touch to your wedding and we wanted to use vendors whose worked inspired such a look! Set at Granite Ridge built at the top of 1000-foot high mountain, the estate lodge has panoramic mountain views, the airy atmosphere combined with white with hints of toffee/browns florals and the exquisite chandeliers in the barn was the perfect combination. With the picturesque setting, romance inspired sweetheart table, bold cake, detail table and espresso cart it wasn’t by any means a stretch of the imagination to transform the afternoon into a dream. The alluring softness of the blue tulle dress skirt our bride Sadie wore and the minimalism of the rustic venue provided a juxtaposition of textures and light that would make even the most seasoned photographer stand back in awe, and we often found ourselves at a loss for words at what we saw unfold before us. Walking out in front of barn overlooking the mountains was simply breathtaking and it felt like time stood still.
We also had a lifestyle intimate couple session in the amazing kitchen in the lodge. This steamy and romantic couple set the stage for the perfect set with outfits from a local boutique.

The love affair between the contrasting dark and soft tones in the barn was one that poets dream of telling and lovers aspire to be part of, and we couldn’t have wished for a more enchanting outcome from this experience.
