Be still our hearts! This magical inspiration shoot styled by Bows and Arrows and Sophia Mullin perfectly captures the essence of New Orleans. The stately walls and vintage furniture of the Hinard House—one of the city’s oldest buildings—was the perfect backdrop for the shoot, which celebrates the textures, patina, and muted tones of the French Quarter. Parchment-inspired stationery and hand-lettered calligraphy from Yeti and the Beast evokes the timeless spirit of the city. Delicate Kate McDonald gowns from Wedding Belles are understated and elegant, and for a unique spin, a flowing skirt from The Dress Theory accompanies the Avedon gown’s beaded bodice. Bows and Arrows designed vibrant florals in shades of violet and berry, and set atop a dark vintage table with mismatched china from Anthropologie, the result is a beautifully textured and layered tabletop. There is beauty in this shoot at every turn, gorgeously captured by Natalie Shelton of NBarrett Photography!
