Real Wedding at Lavender Oaks
The rustic elegance of Lavender Oaks created a harmonious blend of nature, the outdoors and bohemian aesthetics for this fall wedding, while still exuding grace and formality. Historic barns and acres of majestic forest made an alluring background for the special day. The outdoor ceremony was framed with an intricate white iron gazebo which housed beautiful burgundy mums and lavender on both sides. A wooden cross adorned with greenery stood in the background.
The bride wore a timeless lace gown with three quarter sleeves, keyhole back and button detailing, radiating class and charm. Her bridesmaids emanated the warm autumnal blooms used in her bouquet with the maid of honor in a burgundy dress and the rest of the bridesmaids in blush dresses. The groom complemented his bride nicely in a navy suit, red tie and boutonniere of burgundy and ivory blooms. He also carried a vintage gold pocket watch. Sporting khaki suspenders and burgundy bow ties, the groomsmen helped make the wedding equal parts stylish and stunning.
Inside one of Lavender Oak’s historic barns, the reception was sophisticated and romantic. Rich wooden farm tables decorated with burgundy linens featured floral centerpieces similar to the bride’s bouquet atop lace doilies, accompanied by small votives. The newlyweds were seated side by side in chairs with hand-painted wood signs reading “Mrs.” and “Mr.”
A fun pretzel bar and display featuring an assortment of pies put a playful spin on this charming wedding. Each aspect of the day was chosen with a purpose, making it that much more meaningful to the loving couple. Romantic lace, warm autumnal blooms, and natural greenery provided the perfect setting for the couple to celebrate their love in a timeless and elegant manner, with their own special contemporary feel.
