Modern Styled Wedding at The Maxwell in Raleigh
One of Raleigh’s newest luxury venues, The Maxwell, features clean, modern architecture. The venue embodies beauty in its simplest form. The minimalist vibe is the closest a couple can get to a blank slate. Flowers and decor of any color palette or style can be added to The Maxwell’s lounge, lawn, patio and, of course, The Great Room, which can seat up to 300 guests. The possibilities are endless, so let’s see how FauxReal Flowers and CE Rental chose to create an atmosphere of modern wedding elegance at The Maxwell in Raleigh.
Modern Floral Design from Raleigh’s FauxReal Flowers
Lisa Smith and Amber Holmes saw a need for affordable wedding flowers in North Carolina. They teamed up to launch FauxReal Flowers, a rent-and-return, custom faux flower company. Unlike many flowers-for-rent, FauxReal offers a high-quality aesthetic. Your wedding guests won’t know that your flowers are fake! Even at the touch, these silk blossoms feel incredibly real. All FauxReal floral arrangements are completely customizable. Couples have the freedom to choose the color, flower type, style and size of each arrangement they order. If you thought there’s no chance of getting peonies out of season, think again. FauxReal carries all flower types year-round.
Creating an Elegant Wedding Look at The Maxwell
Lisa and Amber showcase a variety of floral arrangements in this styled wedding shoot. Arrangements vary in size, ranging from small to extra large. This table would make for a stunning head table because it is placed perfectly before The Great Room’s fireplace. Moody florals take the eye on a journey from ground-level to tabletop to fireplace mantle. Champagne roses combined with eucalyptus and Italian ruscus are accentuated by dramatic black pampas grass and gold berries. White dinner plates and gold flatware from CE Rental look striking atop a Casablanca Midnight linen. They’re tacked on clear Orizzonte Gold Rim chargers, allowing for the linen to peek through. An 8-foot-long “swag” rests atop the fireplace mantle. FauxReal offers swag floral arrangements that can be draped almost anywhere, priced $50 per foot (2-foot minimum).
Model Anna Haddock is a local lifestyle and travel blogger. Raleigh-based beauty salon Pinup Studio gave Anna an elegant updo, certainly fitting for the day. Soft tendrils of Anna’s hair on either side of her face frame also glamorous makeup. And, this wedding hair and makeup look pairs effortlessly with a dress designed by Dany Tabet from White of Raleigh. The independent bridal gown salon in Raleigh has a photo-worthy ambiance. Plus, White of Raleigh’s thoughtfully curated selection of wedding dresses come in a wide range of prices, from some of the most sought-after designers.
