Romantic Southern Wedding Details
We are LIVE again and the new website and blog for weddings are in Full Swing with this romantic southern wedding inspiration!!! Hooray! We could not be more excited to share this feature production with you! Located at one of my favorite venues, Baker’s Ranch! This beautifully rustic ranch is perfectly nestled amid the towering oaks of Parrish, Florida. It is the perfect oasis for any celebratory occasion, including our favorite occasion – Weddings!!!
The inspiration for this wedding styled shoot came directly from my own rebranding process. I recently decided it was time to take on a completely new approach for my Wedding and Event Planning and Design company! In doing so, I knew I wanted to connect with the foundation of who I am and where I am from. As a girl raised in the heart of North Carolina, I wanted to ensure a sweet southern elegance and charm, paired with touches of old south romance and sparkle! I knew Baker’s Ranch was the perfect location and I couldn’t have asked for more hospitable hosts than Boris and Alla.
This set was put together by many talented vendors. Early on, I contacted Rina of Rina Kay Photography to be my right hand in this production. She beautifully captured all of the details of the shoot! I have admired her as a photographer and knew she would be the perfect fit in capturing a beautiful and timeless romance!
The invitation suite was designed by Lindsay of Writefully Simple! I knew when I went to her for the project she would undoubtedly understand my vision for a whimsical romance underneath the cascading oaks. The menu looks as delicious as ever – I could grab a fork as we speak!! And speaking of fork, what pairs better than a bamboo spoon for our feature favor than The Cake Zone‘s very own Little Tipsy Cakes? If you’ve never tried these spoonfuls of Heaven, you need to stop what you are doing right now and just make it happen! I can’t rave enough about them!
Our bride wore a stunning Amsale wedding gown provided by Calvet Couture Sarasota of Sarasota, Florida. The ruched bodice couldn’t have fit our bride more perfectly! Layers of silk chiffon effortlessly cascade over this stunning Crimson sofa from The Copper Acorn. The florals for today’s feature provided a lush and whimsical layer, full of color and wrapped in soft silk ribbon, elegantly designed by Still Floral.
What groom is complete without a perfectly tailored suit from Jackie Z Style Co. I just loved the deep red bow tie that complimented our color palette so well. And Styles by Kelly Anne did such a phenomenal job creating a soft and full bridal updo paired with a natural finish makeup!
Those flutter sleeves of Blush Bridal’s Amsale wedding gown are so swoon worthy and look stunning next to this rustic metal ceremony site!
This centerpiece completed in stone flower vessels, with a bountiful array of red Roses, Veronica, White Stock, Green Hellebores and a touch of Astilbe! Such a romantic combination for your beautiful wedding day!
This gold and blue accented china is paired so elegantly with the gold silverware on this rustic farm table! And it’s adorned with brass candlesticks!
Did anyone call for a barista on their wedding day? We were absolutely over the moon about this detail! Out and About Coffee graced the shoot with their traveling gourmet coffee station. How beautiful is the craftsmanship on this tasty latte? This company is growing fast and caters to all of your wedding day coffee needs!
There are so many fabulous details! And we just couldn’t do a southern wedding inspired shoot without completing it with an outstanding bottle of bourbon… the wooden bar is hand crafted and compliments of Baker’s Ranch!
I was so excited to accentuate this bride and groom wedding suite! And isn’t it the perfect place for a photo opp if you are foregoing the ever-so-popular first look?
Saving the Grande Finale for last, how about this incredibly crafted white and gold wedding cake by The Cake Zone! This show stopper lowers down from the A-frame ceiling of the Baker’s Ranch ballroom. We were sure to give it proper flair with luscious floral.
