When Marilisa from Martel Event described this shoot to me, she noted that the peach and neutral tones used made it fitting for spring, summer, or fall — and I couldn’t agree more! From the picturesque farmhouse setting at Half-Mile Farm to the natural texture in the bride’s skirt, I was captivated by each thoughtful detail, and hope it provides lots of fall wedding inspiration for y’all this morning, too!
Big hugs to Davy Whitener for these photos!
From Martel Event:
With a stunning setting like Old Edwards Inn & Spa’s Half-Mile Farm, it’s not hard to dream up a lakeside elopement to celebrate the commitment and unity of two people. The color palette and overall feel of the aesthetic was inspired by the natural muslin fibers of Carol Hannah’s Kensington skirt. The casual linen texture made elegant with the fullness of the skirt embodied the carefree and timeless spirit of the couple we imagined would pursue this type of gathering.
Martha McIntosh used a mostly neutral color palette for the florals, allowing the beauty of the couple and the setting to enhance the floral story. By including subtle pops of peach in both the centerpiece and bouquet, the flowers were given a fresh and playful feel – similar to how relaxed the couple feels with one another. The neutral tones of the guest table details as well as the paper goods created by Lydia Whitener ensure that the details are not bound to a particular season, but could easily be assimilated into a spring, summer, or fall affair.
For a small fete consisting of only family or close friends, we envisioned the couple adorning their guest table with collected heirlooms of china and mix-and-match flatware. The wedding cake, designed with a delicate stitching pattern and adorned simply with silk ribbon and single peony sits atop a hand-made cake stand cut from a single piece of wood- another heirloom for the couple to remember their wedding day by for years to come.
