Do you spend your time at the horse stables? What about longing for walks through fall leaves and dreaming of autumn color palettes? Do you absolutely love wild florals + foliage and the look of midwestern barns? If you’re nodding your head, then you’re going to fall absolutely head over heels with today’s editorial (you can thank us later!).
With a focus on a floral horse jump backdrop at the new outdoor venue at Baker Creek Farm, Molly Taylor and Co. along with Shi Shi Events created some serious autumnal magic! The al fresco wedding space lent itself to the overall moody and romantic feeling for the day + having one gorgeous horse (decked in florals) didn’t hurt… Gina of Shi Shi Events shares: The ceremony showcased the venue’s cozy, lush grove surrounded by billowing, mature trees. Using a color palette of candlelit ivory, blush, honeyed coral, sienna, dusty rose, marsala and burgundy, the ceremony design centered around a horse jump backdrop adorned with orchids, dahlias, roses, hydrangea and smilax. A mix of pampas grass, hydrangea, roses and dahlias framed the front from the ground and created an aisle.
Dreamy, right? Let’s wander in the photos captured by Jenny Haas!
Gypset Creative crafted all of the darling paper pieces and the invitation was a knockout… The invitation suite featured a custom sketch of the farm and classic calligraphy throughout. Natural papers in tones of candlelight, soft grey and dusty rose created a varied, perfectly paired suite.
Rio, the horse, was adorned with a garland of flowers and foliages crafted by Molly Taylor and Co..
The groom sported a burgundy suit from Topman, which paired well with a pale blue shirt, cognac and blue patterned tie, and whiskey dress shoes.
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH. This vignette is running wild with florals and we can’t get enough of it!!
All those florals!! The sweeping florals by Molly Taylor and Co. along the gate featured a color palette of candlelit ivory, blush, honeyed coral, sienna, dusty rose, marsala and burgundy.
The tabletop featured a rosy BBJ Linen and a double runner of rose velvet and natural cheesecloth.
Lacy, scalloped stoneware from Event Source mixed with onyx flatware and cut crystal stemware created an elegantly eclectic place setting that was rounded out with a soft, metallic napkin and hand-lettered menu on natural deckled edge paper.
The whiskey and bourbon bar was decorated with an asymmetrical climbing floral piece, consisting of dahlias, roses, orchids and various foliage.
Simple, sweet and stunning!! Hummingbird Bake Shop’s confectionary creation was topped with an array of gorgeous florals + a twisted knot of velvet ribbon and dyed silk. Curious about that handwritten scroll? It reads: In a sea of people, my eyes will always search for you.
Beautiful, right?! We’re loving all the autumn vibes and could see so many of these elements translating to many different events… Thank you so much to the talented team of vendors behind this!
