Oh be-still my vintage, lace loving heart, this photo shoot designed by Cedarwood Weddings is absolute romance perfected. From the crochet doilies hanging from twine and adorning pillows, to the lace wrapped candles, to the amazing displays of peonies, ranunculus, and spray roses, this photo shoot, captured by Ace Photography is quickly becoming a fast favorite. Oh, and I would totally love to see someone incorporate those darling little place settings tied with herbs and tiny flowers into their tablescape. I could go on and on about this one, but I’ll stop so you can get over to the gallery and see all the beauty and inspiration that’s waiting there for you.
From Cedarwood Weddings…Dramatically set against verdant natural landscapes, the bride’s Vera Wang ball gown epitomes style and sophistication. Coral Charm Peonies, Ranunculus, Majolika Spray Roses, Astilbe, Stock, and Pink Bruina create a romantic bridal bouquet adorned with hand-made crocheted lace flowers, vintage lace wrap and a Milk Glass and Aurora Borealis Rhinestone heirloom brooch. Vintage accessories, like the bride’s hat and gloves, add a dash of southern chic. The groom looks like a true southern gentlemen in gray linen and watermelon bow tie, sporting a bold peony boutonniere.
An artisan made altar with reclaimed barn wood, antique door and bed post draped with fresh flower garlands is surrounded by hay bales with lace and burlap pillows for a Tennessee hilltop ceremony. Custom designed burlap and lace flower basket and ring pillow add an extra dose of adorable.
“Southern Supper” with elegant place sittings at one long table on the farm meadow are dressed with heirloom china, silver candelabras, lace wrapped candles and vintage milk glass overflowing with luscious fruit, herbs and flowers. The menu features local Southern fare such as fried chicken, black eyed pea salad, shrimp and grits and turkey and dressing roulades. A pie buffet, cupcakes and wedding cake in three separate locations infuse the celebration with sweetness, and a sweet tea bar including fruit and herb varieties along with bourbon mint julep tea is as southern as it gets.
Sunset in an antique wood row boat and vintage lace ‘after dress’ and parasol, and the grand farewell in a vintage Jaguar are unforgettably romantic.
