An 18th-century mansion, a classic monochromatic palette, and ikebana-inspired florals—this styled shoot beautifully combines old-world glamor with whimsical and contemporary details. Photographer Nikki Daskalakis collaborated with Haven and Spruce and a talented team of vendors to expertly bring a garden micro wedding inspiration to life by using thoughtful understated elements that make an unforgettable impact.
The renowned Meridian House was the perfect venue for this styled shoot with its French architecture, ornate interior, and manicured gardens. Florist Sweet Root Village created spectacular artful blooms to frame the gorgeous couple during their ethereal ceremony at the Loggia. While a striking tablescape of floral clusters, wiry branches, and taper candles complemented the extravagant interior at their romantic reception. And even with a dreamy and sleek aesthetic, the fashion still managed to steal the show with three show-stopping bridal outfits.
From the pin-worthy wedding cake to the stunning couple portraits—Nikki Daskalakis’ beautiful images look like they’re right out of a modern fairytale wedding. Every detail and moment of this styled shoot will leave you with plenty of ideas to help you envision your own big day.
