Lauren Megerdichian

Inspired by the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Paris, The Olana brings that old-world romance and delicate charm of France to the Lone Star State! This stunning shoot planned by Ivory & Vine Event Co. will transport you straight to an enchanted Parisian garden in Spring thanks to Something Pretty Floral's gorgeous arrangements at every turn, teeming with blush and cream blooms. Head on over to the full gallery to see all the swoon-worthy details captured perfectly by Stephanie Brazzle Photography. This editorial session at the Olana was inspired by the architecture of the venue itself. Formally known as the Champ D'Or, The Olana was built to honor the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Paris. We kept the venue at the heart of our design when concepting color palette, floral and rentals - the intricate wood carvings in the wall panels, the luxurious texture of the Parisian-inspired furnishings and the grand scale of the building inspired each element from our stationery suite to the place settings.Something Pretty Floral provided lush, garden-inspired floral to evoke the feeling of a Parisian garden in springtime; incorporating soft, romantic blooms and lush greens. Our gown, the Amanda by Maria Farbinni, was a stunning gown laden with a gorgeous train and many intricate details like hand-sewn feathering and a dramatic, plunging neckline.Maitee Miles transformed our bride with natural, glowy makeup and a loose, whispy updo. Our stationery suite from Sarah Ann Designs included sophisticated sketches of the venue, and many other gorgeous elements including a rich velvet envelope liner, and handwritten calligraphy. Our rentals provided by Perch, Top Tier and La Tavola helped to heighten the sense of luxury via neutral, linen-backed chairs and heavy, textured dishware. Our couple enjoyed spending time in their vintage 63 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III, provided by Blue Diamond Limousines. Each of these elements was photographed in stunning vignettes by Stephanie Brazzle, who utilized the natural light of the grand windows at The Olana to elevate each image.
