Bridal Editorial at The Albemarle Estate

Tucked away in the rolling hills of Charlottesville, lies one of the largest vineyards in Virginia. The Albemarle Estate grounds are a beautiful representation of luxury, refined architecture, and pristine details of history. With an incredible and hardworking team behind the scenes, this day was unforgettable. This shoot is to inspire the elegant and timeless bride who loves modern flares and romantic details intertwined.

Spoken from Hilary, the incredible and talented florist over at Vessel and Stem: “For any project, I always pull inspiration from both the season and the setting. Early spring is my favorite time of the year for seasonal blooms, so I foraged fresh spirea and utilized spring flowers. I wanted the flowers to feel soft yet full of texture, so I played with mostly monochromatic palettes while using multiple textural blooms and foliage. Finally, I popped in some color to compliment the outdoor surroundings of the venue, like cherry blossoms and lilacs.”
