Poetic Countryside Wedding Ideas for the Romantic Couple
Saying I Do in the Countryside sounds absolutely magical to us and once you see these photos by Jessica Gold Photography, you will think so too! The Middleton Place venue, which was dressed in elegant ivory florals by Floressence Flowers and along with incredible Fine Art Curation member Willow & Oak Events was the picture-perfect backdrop for all of the fun and energy to be had! From the romantic oak trees to the outdoor tablescape full of blooms, this is one for the Pinterest boards!
From the event designer, Willow & Oak Events: “Inspired by the concept of a gilded countryside wedding, we sought to bring together the finest vendors along the East coast for this editorial abundant in femme details with a modern twist. Throughout the romantic allés of Middleton Place’s 18th century gardens lie inspiring vignettes, thoughtfully placed amongst the lane dusted camellias and ancient live oaks.
We knew from the start that the ceremony should incorporate one of this Charleston wedding venue’s famous oak trees, and the floralized pendants that Highlands based Floressence Flowers created did not disappoint! The look is poetic by definition, and the bride’s side swept ‘do by Pampered & Pretty echoed the motion of the scene. The Happy Bloom led this real life couple across the expansive grounds teeming with labyrinthine hedges, tranquil lagoons and the wooliest wedding guests we ever did see. It was a no brainer to call on the creative talents of Paper Refinery for all the paper elements, and she brought to life such beautiful details as acrylic + wax seal place cards, botanically-forward invitation suite and a fan-shaped menu with a custom floral print and gossamer silk ribbon we won’t soon forget!
Every piece of the tablescape was crafted with intention, from the marble candle holders and the Himalayan root tapers they support to the flower-etched vintage glassware beside each French glazed plate. Bringing all these curated details to life are the pastel blooms flourishing across the table from end to end. As if all these wedding elements weren’t scrumptious enough already, Vanilla + The Bean answered our prayer for texture with this artisan confection featuring a timeworn plaster patina. Such a beautiful nod to the historic homes you find throughout Charleston! What a privilege it was to design this luxury fete with a powerhouse team of vendors. And what an honor it is to share it with you!”
