You wouldn't know by looking at these pretty jewel toned pictures that this whole event was planned in less than two weeks! Essence Pugh, myself, and Alexis Marie (model) all got together and began planning what would be the cutest little Bridal session I’ve photographed in a while.
The backdrop for this mid-winter session was Revel Event Center, a venue for any occasion in Greenville, South Carolina. Revel’s space is the perfect blend of vintage and contemporary and was absolutely perfect for our vision. The space includes a Grande ball room, whiskey lounge, a bridal suite, grooms quarters and an outside promenade. We only ended up using the ball room (and the promenade) because the industrial ceiling and exposed brick walls were exactly what we needed.
Alexis is wearing a champagne strapless gown from David’s Bridal. Her vintage veil, jewelry, and shoes also came from them as well. The Bridal bouquet, table setup, linens, and centerpiece are all courtesy of A Taste of Essence Events. The cake was wonderfully provided by Buttercream Bakehouse. Alexis’ hair and makeup was flawlessly done by Face It by Turah Ann. And her nails were done by Nailz by Redd.
