In today’s styled shoot, the bewitching beauty of the weeping willow trees at this Florida wedding venue set a magical backdrop to be inspired by. A simple yet sophisticated color theme plays off of the organic elements of its scenery. We’re particularly smitten with both the beautiful wedding cake and its creative table display — aren’t you?
When you combine natural scenic beauty and a talented photographer, magic happens! Photographed by Olivia Morgan Photography, these striking images could write their own love story.
A classic black and white invitation suite from Olivia Grace Paperie takes on a playful twist when printed with greenery and floral details.
Southern Grace Events used the charm of their Southern locale to its full potential with a sleek color palette of black, white, and green to accent lovely vignettes. The floral designs are amped up with unexpected features like the addition of artichokes into the bouquet and centerpieces.
Of course, we have to mention the bride’s gown from One Fine Day Bridal Salon, because those beaded cap sleeves are seriously calling our name.
From the photographer, Olivia Morgan Photography: The styled shoot was held at Chandler Oaks Barn, a brand new venue that will be opening soon in St. Augustine, FL. The Venue is absolutely stunning! From the all-white barn, the giant, modern chandeliers, to the countryside property with dozens of beautiful oak trees and white fences. This venue is perfect for the southern brides that want a little elegance on their wedding day. With this editorial, we tried to showcase just that.
The style of the shoot perfectly reflects the marriage of classic southern charm to modern elegance. We especially love the unexpected pop of color from the artichokes with the timeless look of black and white finishes. When creating our design for a couple, we love to join their styles together to represent two individuals becoming one. We feel as though this is a way to keep the design fresh and interesting but it also reflects how beautifully their differences can mold together while creating something new! Our Models, Kasey + Matt have been married for almost two years and were both happy to relive their wedding day with a styled shoot.
Black tapered candles were the perfect way to add another unexpected edge to this already unique tablescape.
Wake us up because we must be dreaming! This incredible cake from Custom Confections is too good to eat! Perfectly on-theme and playing off the beautiful weeping willows, this black and white floral cake is forever one of our favorites.
The donut display from Cinotti’s Bakery is one sweet ending to an amazing event. We love how versatile a donut bar can be, with custom colors and flavors, and this one does not disappoint.
