The Meadows

THE MEADOWS STYLE SHOOT


 

One thing we love most ( other then making a Bride feel beautiful ) is being in a Career that is so full of other dedicated, passionate, and gifted vendors. We all hold special skills that not only connect us to our Bride & Groom but makes it an unforgettable experience.

This style shoot shows three real couples, two photography companies, one Venue, and much-much more! I guess the only thing left to say is: Are you ready for some magic?

Karl and Patricia


" Now at last they're beginning chapter one of the greatest story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before. " 
- C.S Lewis

 

Karl and Patricia tied the knot at the Twickenham House & Hall located in The Blue Ridge mountians of Asheville North Carolina. 400 pristine acres of nature! 

 

As professionals we strive to make every bride feel unique and beautiful. Patricia's hairstylist, Tiffany Johnson did natural curls and softly pinned back twist on both sides. She then added beautiful assorted flowers to top off the look. The makeup artist, Kelly Farrell did natural tones with a little smoke!! 

 

Working with Patricia and her bridal party was nothing short of a pleasure; she's absolutely the kindest and such a shining light ( Karl you're a lucky one ) Thank you to Chelsea Collins Photography for sharing these beautiful pictures with us!! 

The Carolinas Magazine


So excited to announce that we have been featured along with Photographer Danielle Hutchinson, Jerrye Gordon Events, Photographer Allie Miller, and Wedding Style + Design Whimsically Wed in The Carolinas Magazine!! 

 


Up first we have our Nantucket Sail Boat Elopement Shoot! Designed by Jerrye Gordon and Photographed by Danielle Hutchinson in Beaufort NC; We loved everything about this beautiful seaside town!

 

 

Nothing says Nantucket like having greys, blues, and of course REDS! Having that pop of color with her low styled bun, flowed perfectly with her heart shape neckline dress. May I add how stunning she looks with it!?

 

Be sure to grab a copy today at your local Barns and nobles to know more vendor details of this Beautiful Shoot!! Located in The Carolinas Magazine!! Page 40

 


 

Last but certainly not least, we have our Neuse Breeze Shoot located in Havelock NC. This shoot was photographed by Allie Miller and Designed by Whimsically Wed. This shoot definitely sent modern goddess vibes!! 

 

3.5 Acres of Pure Bliss!!

Neuse Breeze is well known for its breathtaking waterfront views. If privacy is a key attribute for you on your wedding day, look no further because of this private getaway would just do it for you!! 

 

From romantic moments on the flower swing to the great wall of donuts!

( Funny Fact ) During this shoot it thunder-stormed. Really bad. However In-between the rain Photographer Allie Miller was able to work her magic and capture this beautiful pictures.

 

There's nothing we love most then incorporating natural tones, and textures in our bridal updos: especially when having a seaside wedding!  Be sure to grab a copy today at your local Barns and nobles to see this beautiful spread!! Located in The Carolinas Magazine!!

Mr. & Mrs. Nelson


Being there to get Tia and her bridal party ready was such a fun experience for our team. Everyone was very sweet and eager to have a full glam experience! Most of Tias bridal party never got Airbrush Makeup done before then, so they were definitely in for a great treat.


Working with Trevor and Shelby from The Pennington Co, was an absolute pleasure! Their photography style is very romantic, yet vintage which makes it a very laid back and easy going experience for both Bride and Groom. Trevor and Shelby Pennington reside in Raleigh NC and have a passion for capturing couples special moments.

Kristine's Real Life "Dusty Blue" Wedding

We love when Brides get inspired by our Styled Shoots! Chad + Kristine's inspiration came from our published Dusty Blue Shoot. Kristine had a vision: and she wanted to recreate every detail for their big day! 


 

Chad + Kristine’s wedding colors were soft, cool tones; white, blues and greens with oh-so timid pops of pinks. Photographer; Kate Supa, captured their love beautifully. 

One thing you should know is that we LOVE bouquets! Fiore Fine Flowers did a stunning job with both Kristine’s bouquets & the Styled Shoot that was the inspiration! Kristine’s floral arrangement had white roses, and pastel/blush roses wrapped in two tone pink ribbon. Simple and elegant. 

Wrightsville Manor is truly a magical venue that offers a lot of space to create wedding magic. From the pebble stone walkway, and the center front water fountain, to the grand brick fireplace; this venue is a breathtaking! Our dear friend Jana from Design a Dream Events certainly has an eye for design: and the organization necessary for happy brides and vendors. 

Kristine; you and your bridal party looked AMAZING!! Thank you for choosing Silverceiling and a huge thanks to the vendors for being a part of this fabulous day!

       These two love birds tied the knot at The Airlie Gardens in Wilmington NC. The Airlie Gardens is 67 acres of pure beauty; the Historic grounds are covered with many different flowers & trees which gives this location Encore best of & best place to get married in NC!! 

IMG_3737.jpg

        The romantic yet stunning wedding footage was captured by Digital Wunderland. For almost two decades Digital Wunderland; has been awarded winning film and photography company. The family owned business is operated by Joe and Lindsey Cheshire.  

IMG_3739.jpg

        

Working for Soben was an absolute pleasure; her and the bridal party were so sweet and all smiles when our professionals, Tiffany Johnson ( Makeup Artist ) and Martha Ann ( Hairstylist) were done working their magic. Soben’s hair choice was old Hollywood glam curls with a soft neutral eye. She wore a heart-shaped ballroom dress and paired it beautifully with a veil that was outlined in vintage lace. Surrounded by her; her bridal party who all wore loose waves, with natural eye makeup. 

     Silverceiling enjoy every moment making this bridal party feel glamorous! We wish Scott & Soben the absolute best.

Courtney + Nick

On March 31st, 2019 this beautiful couple tied the knot. They wed at Neuse Breeze in Havelock North Carolina. The venue is nestled on a three and a half acre waterfront estate that is absolutely breathtaking. 

 

Arielle Valenzuela captured the love between Courtney and Nick perfectly; as well as the love between Courtney and her girls!! 

We enjoyed every moment working with Courtney on her big day and wish them all the love in the world! xo

The Historic Wakefield Barn

As promised ladies and gentlemen; I present to you The Historic Wakefield Barn!

 

We met our model just this past week in our Bridal Suite. She is recently married and was the perfect muse for this shoot! We used light blush and champagne tones to compliment the elegance of the shoot; and completed her look with an undone updo. 

 

Brandon Humes from Southern Love Studios captured the setting perfectly! I think our favorite part was sunset. The combination of the barn and horses with the view was absolute perfection!!

 

As you know; details are everything! Chad Biggs Event Planning and Design is a boutique firm and specializes in making dreams come true! Their Planning and Design team is out of this world and sure to meet all of your wishes. 

Expressions of Love had an amazing touch on flower arrangements and even added their beauty on our three tier cake by Simply Cakes! Keeping details in mind; Cask Designs created the chic stationary and table cards! Everything about this shoot was a dream. 

We are so excited to kick off this Wedding Season and looking forward to more breathtaking events with Chad Biggs Event Planning and Design!! 

 

Historic Glam

If you haven't heard of Chad Biggs Event Planning Design brace yourself for some serious beauty. 

In addition to creating some of the most magical weddings, they also have an amazing team that is sure to make all your dreams come to life.

We met Janna (one of Chad's right hand women) and Daniel (right hand man) during Styled Shoots Across America at Melrose Knitting Mill. We immediately fell in love with them and the venue! They mentioned they were opening another location in Wakefield and sure it'll be the hot spot venue of 2018! So with that being said; I was all eyes and ears with anticipation. 

We then met Chad at the Southern Bride and Groom Mixer and to say it was love at first sight would be an understatement! He mentioned the opening of the new venue and that he'd like to do a Styled Shoot before the Grand Opening; of course we were all in!

I can't say too much; want to keep the element of surprise :) but the venue is amazing! Our shoot is on March 5th and we are ecstatic to work with Chad's team! Picture; rustic, romance, a tish of gold, and a lot of magic! 

Brandon Humes from Southern Love Studio will be the photographer, floral arrangements provided by Expressions of love, and we will be on the hair and airbrush makeup game! 

Stay tuned for some sneaks babes! xo 

 

American Beauty

Styled Shoots Across America brings Wedding Professionals from all over the country together to learn, create, and inspire! When Heather Benge; the founder of SSAA contacted us and asked if we wanted to be a part of their shoot in Raleigh we couldn't say "yes!" fast enough!

Our shoot location was Melrose Knitting Mill in Downtown Raleigh. It's the perfect venue if you're looking for an urban chic atmosphere. Tall ceilings, beautiful windows, and an open floor plan made for the best setting. 

When we arrived Intrigue Designs was teaching their floral class. I've never seen so many beautiful flowers in my life! The colors we're so vibrant and made for beautiful arrangements, and don't even get me started on the centerpiece! So magical!

 

Sugar Euphoria provided an amazing cake with beautiful designs and we fell in love with the stationary from Chickadee Dixie! The handwritten calligraphy was absolutely stunning! 

It was an amazing shoot and the photography is phenomenal. It was so exciting and educational to work with so many talented souls along the east coast!

With that being said... (drum-roll please) We are ECSTATIC to announce that will be traveling with Styled Shoots Across America starting July! We couldn't be more thrilled to share our love for the bridal industry and make new connections :)

Bald Head Island Wedding Inspo

Can you imagine a wedding environment that is the ultimate "Get Away?" Intimate, whimsical, and a mini-vacay for not only the bride and groom, but the bridal party and attendants?! 

Bald Head Island is JUST THAT! Nestled away about 30 miles from Wilmington, you have to take a ferry to enter the island- and no cars are allowed! Well, except for golf carts, which you'll see in some of our photos.

DID SOMEONE SAY A BENTLEY GOLF CART?! You've got it!

We were so happy to partner with Southern Bride and Groom magazine to create this island inspired shoot. All photography was done by Magnolia (good friends of ours!) and the floral magic was created by Fiore Fine Flowers.

 HAIR AND MAKEUP DEETS: We wanted to keep the vibe feeling soft. Pretty. Enhanced but not over-done! We opted for a signature blow out on our bride, full airbrush makeup- soft contour (more highlight!), and a soft rust/ bronze smokey eye.

A Whimsical Rehearsal

 

 

If you haven't been to Isaac Taylor gardens in New Bern; these photos will surely get your dreaming!

We got to work with some amazing vendors and models on this shoot and couldn't be more excited to share the final product with you!

 

Photo Jan 11, 9 28 36 AM.jpg

Jerry Gordon styled the event using romantic pieces from Charming and Quaint; which really made the place settings magical! Front the candlesticks tapering throughout the vines, to the sweet little figs places on each menu; it made for a perfect tablescape!

Photo Jan 10, 6 52 24 AM.jpg

Not only did we get to stage a rehearsal dinner but we also got to eat! (Which is always a bonus!) Seaside Sensations brought in the most decadent meats, vegetables, and breads we've ever tasted! Needless to say; our plates we're cleared by the end of the meal :)

Then came the cake; which in itself was a work of art! I think one of my favorite things about this shoot was fig placement! Besides them looking so sweet as decor they tasted amazing! Even though we were all stuffed from dinner, we couldn't say no to dessert! The Famous Baking company gave us the most beautiful and delicious cake we've ever tasted :)

Melissa Blythe photographed everything perfectly; she really has an eye for beauty and making everyone feel comfortable. We've worked with her on multiple occasions but I have to say; this was one of our favorites!!

It was such an amazing night spent with some our favorite people and we cannot wait to create more magic together :)

This one's for you, DINAIR AIRBRUSH!

A great question to ask is, where would Silverceiling be without the incredible technology of Dinair? Today we celebrate 35 years of being part of the incredible Dinair family! 

It all started with one bride, 5 years ago, that asked a simple question. "Hey have you ladies heard about airbrush? I heard it's kind of a new thing for weddings- I was wondering if you guys offered it?"

We knew we had to learn more! And upon our research, we found that it was pretty much the most amazing makeup out there. 

I MEAN WATERPROOF? I MEAN, HD FINISH AND DIMENSION? I MEAN, NON- CAKEY AND LAYERABLE? I MEAN, THIS SOUNDS LIKE A DREAM!

Our Founder Kelly decided to go all the way Airbrush. She flew out to NYC to get her first certification and fell in love with the Airbrush Lifestyle!

 2014 it all began!

2014 it all began!

She took all of her knowledge and brought it back to the team. She learned that not only could you airbrush makeup- you could airbrush the body- EVEN HAIR- create art- and apply expert spray tans. She was completely blown away!

Perfect for all skin types. Hypoallergenic. Provides light to full coverage. IDEAL for sensitive skin. 

Our team fell in love and the rest is history. We had the opportunity 2 years ago to work a fashion show with Dinair/ TLC Say Yes to the Dress and met some other amazing, airbrush babes. Here's some of our favorite pics! NYC, We meet again!

A Very D.C. Wedding- Courtney and Eddie

Courtney + Eddie: A Love Story 

RossWedding_0052.jpg

Our babes were absolutely thrilled to be part of Courtney and Eddie's Naval Academy wedding! Everything from the getting ready house to the venue was charming and historic. Courtney opted to get ready at the historic Randall house in Annapolis: which boasts gorgeous hardwood floors, a full service bar, lounge area, and comfy bedrooms- set in the middle of the historic district. HOW CUTE! When we pulled up in the early AM we were so excited to see this gorgeous little area!

streetview.jpeg

We felt so honored to be part of her wedding. During her trial run, she told us she had tried other artists in D.C.- and really just didn't feel like they understood her vision. It's so important to connect with your vendors! Upon meeting her, we knew this would be a perfect fit for her wedding day hair and makeup. Courtney opted for a very vintage feel: with gorgeous "Blake Lively" Hollywood glam curls- and soft skin, contour, and a RED LIP. And her dress.... we can't even! It was embellished from top to bottom and fit her like a glove. Courtney + Eddie tied the knot in the gorgeous United States Naval Academy in Annapolis! 

Dear Courtney- Thank you for choosing US! When we left, we truly felt that we had been with our friends all morning. The laughter, happiness, and beauty was contagious.

Getting_Ready-8.jpg

One thing that really stood out to us was something the mother of the groom said:

I’m so glad my son found someone who loves him as much as I do. I didn’t think it was possible but Courtney loves him with all of her heart. And he adores her. I couldn’t be happier!

She said this with tears in her eyes but no worries- the airbrush makeup is waterproof! ;)

We love you Court--- Congrats Courtney and Eddie!

Modern Romance- Emerald Green Inspo

Untitled Export-0030.jpg

If you're looking for a venue that is appeasing to both bride and groom The Meadows is the perfect venue for you! Not only does the venue have the perfect rustic look but it's easily turned into a glamorous event. With the outdoor space; Heron Hall,  enclosed with glass doors and lofted ceilings, this venue is perfect for any bride who wants that touch of history, with a hint of rustic glam.

Untitled Export-0036.jpg

Erin and Tate's dream wedding made the venue more than amazing. Between the whimsical bouquet to the emerald green heels, their wedding was one for the books! Erin's style was complete glamour and connecting her vision with the rustic touch of The Meadows turned out to be the perfect setting for her special day. Please note all of the gorgeous emerald green- which has us swooning- as it adds this touch of luxury and depth!

Untitled Export-0034.jpg

The most exciting part of our job is watching the bride's vision for hair and makeup come together perfectly with the venue setting! Erin's vision was an Earthy Glam. She wanted to incorporate both aspects to create her dream day. With smokey eyes and emerald green heels we couldn't go wrong! 

Untitled Export-0009.jpg

And can we just take a minute to swoon over her bouquet!!! (Swoon.....) Tildy Designs did a stellar job!

Can you believe these DETAILS?! Emerald Green, Pink, Gold and Cream everywhere! Such a beautiful elegant touch. Her cake was carefully crafted by Sugar Cream and Peonies, Macaroons added that french country feel: by Macaronsbyaline, and the invitations by Wedding Paper Love were stellar! 

Everyone was in awe when she entered the room. Her smokey eyes and bohemian hair complimented the aesthetics perfectly! 

Her bridesmaids were thrilled to see Erin's big debut and we created their dreams into reality! Everyone was thrilled to see the airbrush makeup and we were eager to see the finished look!!

Untitled Export-0007.jpg

 

Cheers to Erin and Tate! Making your dream day come to life was more than amazing, and we wish you many years of bliss!

XOXO, Airbrush Babe!

With love,

Bradford Open House

Last month, we had the pleasure of being part of The Bradford Open House! At the open house, we had the opportunity to network with brides to be and other wedding vendors from the Raleigh area!

BradfordOpenHouse_RadianPhotography-16.jpg

There was a huge turnout! Every wall was filled with vendor booths and the rooms were packed with soon to be brides and their families. 

BradfordOpenHouse_RadianPhotography-40.jpg

At our table, we showcased our makeup and several of our details. We even gave a few lucky babes a free airbrush makeover!

BradfordOpenHouse_RadianPhotography-42.jpg

For each babe who got a makeover, we took two polaroids of their final look. One for them, one for us! It was a total hit!
