Feature: Bridal Musings | Raffaldini Vineyards Wedding

Just recently I had the opportunity to work with not only some the best wedding vendors in Charlotte, but at one of the most gorgeous wedding venues in NC I have been to year to date! Raffaldini Vineyards was the perfect backdrop for our romantic and elegant styled wedding shoot featuring dark rich berry tones paired with light champagne hues delivering luxe wedding details at it's finest. 

It rained on and off the entire day. In some photos you can even see the clouds rolling in over the mountain which just added to the entire style of the shoot! I was thrilled! 

When it was raining, we were able to photograph most of the details in the wine tasting rooms, like the beautiful stationary suite. Again, we went for bold rich tones of burgundy and gold, and used the same hand dyed silk ribbon on the bouquet to tie it all together and add just enough lightness to create an elegant, but bold look.

We ended the shoot in the vineyard, and the sun literally came out just for the last 10 minutes prior to sunset. 

It was stunning, and the rows and rows of vineyards just added the perfect touch of elegant drama to wrap up the day.

I was honored to work with such an amazing team of wedding vendors. This local group of Charlotte wedding creatives never disappoint, and their willingness to support and define the beauty of weddings in the Carolinas will forever amaze me. 

Many thanks to Bridal Musings for featuring this shoot! To view more photos from this fabulous shoot, click HERE :)
