As the temps creep from chilly territory to downright cold, we’re taking refuge in the rich warmth that Bare Root Flora has splashed this fall shoot with today. Layers of harvest happiness, burgundy ranunculus paired with foraged autumn-ombre leaves and a rustic table elevated by indigo tapers aplenty. Sound cozy? It sooo is, and thanks to Callie Hobbs it all lives in THE VAULT.

From Bare Root Flora…When autumn comes, we seek out warmth through richness and depth of color and texture, gathering and layering gorgeous elements that celebrate this season of harvest and plenty. We were inspired by this notion to create a warm and elegant scene that evokes gatherings we hold with family and friends. A beautiful pick-your-own apple orchard that specializes in heirloom apples was the perfect setting.
Deep jewel tones set the stage at our table, which features elegant yet fresh tableware in rich berry and plum tones. We let the flowers be a focal point on the simple and elegant hand-made farm table. Gorgeous garden roses and spray roses, rich ranunculus, sweet cosmos and scabiosa, textural blushing bride protea and astrantia were accented with seasonal foliages, grasses and beautiful pomegranates, pears, and lush grapes. Cozy sheepskins lent warmth and an organic touch to the rustic chairs. Candles in a deep, rich sapphire tone in playful gold taper holders gave the table a bit of whimsy.
Our bride was timeless yet modern in her two-piece gown. We kept the styling simple, with minimal bespoke gold jewelry. When temperatures dipped, as they so often do on even the loveliest autumn days, this gorgeous blush sheepskin-inspired jacket kept her stylish and warm. Our simple, stylish cake was topped with fresh figs, black grapes and gold leaves for a hint of harvest bounty. A gorgeous Silk & Willow runner and a few beautiful tapers were the perfect complement.

When it comes to farm weddings you should really have two things: animals and wildflowers. This couple had both which means their wedding was not only fun, but beautiful. Captured by Andy Barnhart Photography, playful touches make this farm wedding a cannot miss. You can see every detail (and the animals) here!

From The Bride…When Nick and I began planning our wedding, we started by visiting several venues. Just when it looked like we weren’t going to find anything, a friend mentioned the Lyons Farmette. We scheduled a visit, and it was absolutely perfect! Most of our guests were coming from out of state, and we wanted to create a fun, relaxed experience for them. The Farmette is beautiful with its flower gardens and flowing stream. The animals are adorable and were enjoyed by kids and adults alike. By adding lawn games and a food truck we were able to create a festive atmosphere with plenty of activities for our guests.
There were many elements that made our wedding day special. Reading our vows that we wrote for each other was definitely the highlight for us! With the help of friends and family, we added may DIY touches which really helped with the budget and created that vintage farm look. We were also extremely lucky to find such wonderful vendors. Everyone did an amazing job. Our gift to our guests was local organic honey from Lyons that Jax DeCoster from the Farmette infused with lavender. It was such a special day for us and we are glad we could share it with our family and friends.

From Sara Hasstedt
…This shoot was inspired by the idea of a sweet intimate dinner amongst friends enveloped by trees and candlelight in an orchard. All the details, from the blush-toned Watters corset & skirt combination layered with the ivory Augusta Jones skirt for added dimension and softness, to the varied tones of pink, berry and creams in the florals, and the dainty whimsy of the white polka dotted table linen, hand-selected from a local specialty fabric shop by stylist, Jessica Hearing, were carefully curated to create an overall aesthetic that would speak to a very feminine and fanciful bride.
The menu design combined hand lettering and a subtle watercolor wash. These unique menu boxes were secured with a colorful ribbon and wax seal. Inside the menu box guests will find a delightful treat, french macarons. We love that this menu doubles as a favor. One of our favorite details were the long delicate tapered candles that sprouted out of mini greenery arrangements at the table. We loved how easily this married the romantic ambiance with the outdoor setting.
The florals for this styled shoot were designed to capture the feminine yet wild and free romantic in us all! We loved the âlipstick colored floral paletteâ of Peonies, Garden Roses, Ranunculus and Clematis mixed with a home-grown aesthetic of fresh berries and foliage. It was the perfect color complement to the ladylike hues of the dress and the awesomely organic outdoor setting. Organized elegance in a old country setting could never be wrong.
We really wanted the paper goods to reflect the wedding palette and our elegant bride.
The invitations were each mounted onto thick watercolor paper with a wash of deep pink to make the copy really pop while keeping the overall look soft and whimsical. Illustrated flowers in the liner really completed the look.
