Happy Submitted Styled Shoot Sunday, everyone! Enjoy today’s shoot, captured by talented Quentin Forest Photography and coordinated by the wonderful Kendall Melissa Events!

When asked about the inspiration for the shoot, Kendall Melissa says, “I pulled inspiration by leaning into the industrial structure surrounded by the lush gardens. I called this “A Romantic Industrial Garden” inspired shoot. I wanted to lean into the hard lines, dark iron accents, and soften them a little by bringing in hints of mauve and wood. I wanted to pair the modernness of the venue with antique gold pieces, that appear in the vintage candlesticks, brass goblets, and flatware accents. I love the juxtaposition of hard and soft, structure and romance, and new and old to create a cohesive design that is inviting. I wanted to contrast the masculinity of the villa with soft, feminine touches that can be seen in the lush florals seen on the tablescape and in the lounge. Overall I wanted to intertwine the feel of a lush garden with the hard structure of the villa.”
