Monday just got a whole lot more beautiful! This bold + classic styled wedding inspiration is more than gorgeous... its intimate and unique, serene but colorful, and full of thoughtful details. Together with an incredibly talented team, Renée Nicolo pulled off a day to remember at  The Inn at Villanova University.  From the bold fall florals and the timeless lace dress, to the vintage details and vibrant decor, this styled shoot is a fun spin on traditional. Brides and grooms, get ready to save some of your favorites: this shoot is full of inspiration for your big day!

From Renee: There is no doubt that The Inn at Villanova University was the foundation of our inspiration for this intimate editorial wedding shoot. A hidden gem right outside of Philadelphia with romantic and elegant charm that was so evident both inside and outside of the venue absolutely captivated all of the vendors who participated in the shoot!

Located on the Mainline in Pennsylvania, the Montrose Mansion - which is attached to The Inn at Villanova University - was built in the early 1900s and the architecture inside was full of immense detail, tall wooden archways, and bay windows.

Vibrant pinks and reds, alongside gold tones with silver accents gave Montrose Mansion a colorful and romantic touch. Fruit, such as pomegranates, apples, pears and grapes were also a favorite addition to our design accented with candlesticks and greenery. This theme remained true throughout every detail from the invitation suite, the bride’s bouquet, tablescape and desserts.

We wanted the modern bride to know that classic and timeless traditions never go out of style, and can most definitely be paired with unique, vibrant and rich details. The Bride and Groom’s attire followed suit with touches of lace adorned with romantic jewelry and a fitted black tux. Being the Bride and Groom were a real life couple, the chemistry they have undoubtedly, captured the vibe we were going for.

All of the vendors involved enjoyed every moment of bringing this wedding inspiration to life!
