our work along with several of our pals was featured on the Weddings Unveiled Blog: Completely Unveiled. Woohoo! A repost follows, and you can check out the original here
There’s something so Southern about a farm wedding and when event stylist Opulent Couturier sent us this styled photo shoot photographed by Kristyn Hogan at Front Porch Farms in Nashville, we knew we had to share it! We love the long wooden table and bright floral arrangements created by Brocade Designs in vintage cans, mason jars and silver mint julep cups. A palette of gray and yellow is woven throughout the design, with a yellow flower motif appearing on the lovely paper goods created by Sweet Life Designs. Bird nests add a little bit of whimsy, while lemonade served from mason jars, a cotton blossom wreath, an old wire fan and worn case goods give the shoot a vintage feel. We especially love the custom “just married” banner created by etsy seller Bekah Jennings and the inclusion of blue-gray thistle in the arrangements. Thank you to Latrice of Opulent Couturier for sharing this delightful farm-inspired photo shoot with us!

I’m going to editiorialize and add some comments to each series of images
Front Porch Farms is out a rural highway, with the perfect natural backdrop. While the house looks older, it’s actually a new build with every modern convenience. There’s so many perks to hosting your event out here– coupled with scenic vistas, it’s an amazing spot. Our inspiration was a rustic vintage feeling, inspired in a yellow + gray color scheme, with pops of green. I used a mix of wildflowers paired with more refined blooms– like yellow callas– and placed them in vintage-inspired containers found by Latrice of Opulent Couturier. The chalkboard writing is my attempt to convey a similar script to the lovely invites designed by Amber of Sweet Life:
We did two looks for the table- one more wild and rustic, with galvanized container floral runners with Acacia, button mums, and berries paired with the tins, and a second look with vintage mason jars, poppies, acacia, orchids, and stock. I love the integration of china plateware found by Latrice, and her darling little birds in cute nests: precious.
Jars were lined with hydrangea leaves for a rustic look, and I think the florals really popped against the deep dark woodgrain:
a wheatgrass flat embellished with poppies & button mums became the perfect spot for escort cards on display, and our lemonade was embellished with personalised straw monogram markers by Sweet Life Designs.
Catch a glimpse of the bouquets surrounding the amazing cake– love this! with bouts to match; an upstairs alcove became the perfect staging point for a lovely cubbyhole display in vibrant colors and textures:
Beautiful brides in gowns by the Bride Room– they were all breathtaking, and you’d think it was 70 degrees (it barely crested 50) as these ladies frolicked on the yard:
A great day & wonderful shoot!
