Seeing just a few photos of Jardin de Buis, Claire Duran knew she had to create an elegant editorial in this space. With its unique greenhouse and orangerie, the European-feeling architecture of the home, and the impressive grounds, Claire’s goal was to complement and enhance the venue with the help of Belovely’s floral design expertise, incorporating the ample greenery and gorgeous natural surroundings in an elegant way. The result is effortless romance, photographed to perfection by Erika Brown, so check out the gallery for more inspiration.
From Claire Duran Weddings and Events… The moment I saw images from Jardin de Buis in New Jersey was the moment I fell in love with it. I know I had to design for that space, no matter the four hour drive from Washington DC. And then I saw it in person, and my jaw simply dropped at the amazing beauty of the space, and the gorgeous private collection of its owner. This editorial intends to inspire the Bride who is excited to make a statement with her venue choice and who wants to incorporate nature into her wedding in a very elegant and sophisticated way.
The greenhouse, the house’s architecture, and the gardens gave us the perfect backdrops for such a combination of aesthetics. All we had to do was bring in the little touches that would complement all that was already going on, keeping a neutral color palette for the most part, and adding some strong pops of color to catch the eye, as seen with the cake and the shoes. Softness, simplicity, and delicate details were all in mind when thinking of the stationery, gown, hair, makeup, and accessories, and the bit of adventure and wildness would come across through the floral design.
When doing editorials, there’s nothing better than having a real couple as models, so we were delighted to have Erin and Vito model for us, as we get to see their genuine and deep love for each other in front of the camera, which at the end of the day, is what weddings are all about! Once it all came to life, it is thanks to the uber talented Erika Brown that we have these incredible images for us to always remember how much wedding beauty was collectively created that day!
