Am always humbled when our work is published… On this Valentine’s Day, Trendy Bride is showing us some love by featuring our Watercolor Romance Styled Shoot. Beautifully captured by JofFoto, the images evoke vibrant, passion-filled romance where pinks and reds overcome every shade of gray!
“He found the colors to paint her where the world had left her grey”
Happily introduced to the Bella Villa inventory collection on occasion of this shoot is the vintage menu stand above. Our artistic groom used it as a unique easel for painting his muse. Totally fibbing. That was just for the shoot… the real artist was Lazy Dog Art Studio who painted her interpretation of the Atticus quote as that poignant watercolor you saw above… did you notice she’s grey in the picture and he’s breathing color into her? I love it.
If you’ve never been to Rust Manor House and Nature Sanctuary in Leesburg, VA it is absolutely worth a visit as the Audubon Naturalist Society is also located there and I’m pretty sure they love squirrels. Also, along with Aldie Mill Historic Park, another unique Loudoun County venue located just across the road from the Bella Villa warehouse, Rust Manor is open to the public! I digress. Back to the shoot… We also introduced these awesome new red velvet bergere chairs, which have yet to be named. Feel free to post suggestions on my Facebook page. Gorgeous to add a punch of color to any lounge!
They’re so comfy and feature the same body style as the pair of Siena & Chiara pink velvet tufted chairs, but the new ones are red and have a smooth back (no tufting).
We also featured two very feminine “occasional” tables… the petite mint green serpentine console. So gorgeous and was perfect for the card and gift table. And of course, you can see the inspirational quote beautifully scribed in watercolor.
So perfect with all its chippiness, fancy hardware and curvy body. Like a woman! Those droopy tulips in the drawer make my heart skip!
We displayed Sweet Pink Bakery’s gorgeous cake (complete with Cupid’s arrow!) atop our white frenchy table and displayed the gorgeous blooms from Danielly’s Boutique’s in the caged bottom area.
And this might be one of my favorite things to rent… tableside bubbly for the bride & groom… I love love love using this fancy urn in lieu of a traditional ice bucket. Anyone can have an ice bucket. It takes a genius (that’s what I like to tell myself) to see creative, yet practical, uses for ordinary objects. Although, this urn is hardly ordinary!
Thanks for reading! I’ll have more photos from this shoot on my Facebook page. Meanwhile, take a look at the full team of creatives listed below and don’t forget to check out the Trendy Bride post! If you’re compelled, leave a comment… share some love. The world needs more of it.
And Happy Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!!
