What Dreams are Made Of (part 1)

A few months ago, we spoke to floral designer extraordinaire Evan Leggoe of Thicket Creative about doing a wedding shoot. Evan recently moved to Chattanooga from Atlanta, and is building her business locally. We had a shared dream of stringing carnations on a line, like you see on temples in India.

From there, Evan pulled together the most amazing group of vendors:

Dresses: Monicas Bridal | Hair: Shaina Ramsey Beauty | Makeup: Gabriella Bordo | Furnishings/Tableware: Ramblewood Events | Florals: Thicket Creative | Photography: OK Crowe (Rachael Crowe) & Wonderly Creative (YeeWon Wilkey) (Part 2) Models: @nenerina @davywidt  & @angeladominessy @carlsimakoff17 (Part 2) |

And they made magic…

Photographer Rachael Crowe brought in the smoke bombs to add some serious movie-style mood to Evan’s impressive floral installation in the rocks. (all photos in part 1 are by Rachael Crowe).

And then there’s the barn:

We are loving how our whitewashed barn is letting all the colors pop! Evan imagined a beautiful table setting with daffodils, kumquats (those are tiny citrus fruits), and of course, the verrrrry cool strands of carnations. Ramblewood killed it with heavy-handled silverware and weave & thatch plateware, with deep gold napkins to heighten the drama.

Back up to the Cottage, and a few getting ready photos:

We always always always love this wall:
