Pastels in The South

Apr 19, 2019

Peach and blush pastels mixed with spring florals create a whimsical style at a rustic venue with modern touches in an elegant styled shoot at Tin Roof Farms near Columbia, South Carolina

There’s no question the peaches and pastels in the south go hand in hand together. That’s why when planning this styled shoot, the photographer and planner decided to pair the color palette with a dreamy southern venue. The mix of modern and rustic came together with the spring colors to create something beautiful beyond belief.

“We chose to incorporate peachy pastels in this southern, elegant venue setting,” said the photographer. “In the south, we have a thing for barns and chapels, but what is even better about this venue is that they offer brides just that and more!”

Starting with the getting ready space, every little backdrop and detail in the venue was perfect. From the pink ottomans underneath the oversized black paneled window to the farmhouse chic taupe sofa the girls sipped champagne on to the pink velvet, gold legged chair the bride got ready in, each spot was just as picturesque as the next. 

Rarely do styled shoots feature full getting ready shots, but with the behind the scenes shots from this shoot, it really inspires a bride to find that picture perfect spot where they can spend the morning relaxing with their girls in matching silk robes, just like the ones featured. 

In their robes, the girls sipped champagne and even got a visit from an extra furry friend. Nothing beats puppy cuddles on wedding day!

The bride had her hair done in a braided half up, half down, curled style. Her pinkish smoky eye added the right drama to the look. When she put on the dress, the whole look came together. The low cut front and back was covered in a flower pattern that trailed off into the full tulle skirt and picked up at the bottom. The flower accenting couldn’t have worked any better with the spring theme. 

The bridesmaids joined the bride again, but this time in mismatching peachy blush mismatching gowns. One dress was flowy and off the shoulders, another was modern and sparkly, and another was textured and traditional. It was the perfect mix. And once the flowers were added into the picture it was a dream come true.

Each bouquet was slightly different, but somehow each flowed into the next for one seamless look. They were all full of peach, blush, mauve, pink and yellow blooms and topped off with textured greenery. The ribbons that flowed down from the stems added a whimsical feel that we love. 

The girls all stood in front of a grey stone, floor to ceiling fireplace. The wooden mantle had a large arrangement of mostly greenery but a few pops of colored flowers and candles on the other side. More loose greenery and candles flowed down onto the raised hearth of the fireplace and onto the floor. 

After some time with her girls, the bride was joined by her groom. He wore a khaki colored suit that was perfect for the warmer season. The blush bowtie added the right pop of color to his look. 

The couple moved from the fireplace backdrop to the reception set up and it took our breath away. Across the room, with the fireplace still in the background, there was a rectangular table set with a crisp white linen and a peachy gauze runner along the center. There were wooden oval crossback chairs that took farmhouse chic to another level. 

In the center of the table there was a single flower arrangement full of more pastel blooms and textured greenery. On each side of the arrangement the rest of the table was lined with pastel colored taper candles in gold candlestick holders. There was a watercolor acrylic table number sign that enhanced the whimsical feel. 

Each place setting was set with a gold rimmed acrylic charger, topped with a gold rimmed white dinner plate. A singular gold hammered fork was wrapped into a white organza napkin and tied off with a singular white flower and small sprig of greenery. The whole look was topped off with a small peach, handwritten place card. 

What you didn’t see was just outside the white walls of this gorgeous indoor space it was storming like crazy. 

“We were under tornado warnings and it was raining and storming like crazy,” explained the photographer. “Thanks to this beautiful white indoor space, we were able to pull it off with no worries! We came back later the same week to shoot outside at the most gorgeous chapel you could ever lay eyes on!”

The bride twirled and danced in the open field in front of the white wood chapel. With the golden sunlight in the distance and the fresh green nature all around, it’s no wonder that spring season is wedding season!

Later, the cake table was placed in front of the chapel for a dramatic shot that took our breath away. On top of the peach linen covered table was an acrylic stand that held the most beautifully simple tiered cake. It had three full sized tiers but between the bottom and middle tier was a small half size tier to add a different shape to the look and bring in a modern feel. The tiers alternated between peach, white and champagne in color and was accessorized with a mini greenery moongate piece. 

Aside from the cake, there was also a donut display mixed into a champagne display. Two of the best things if you ask us! It was all displayed on a gold bookshelf with florals and greenery woven throughout. 

To tie it all together, the shoot featured a beautiful invitation suite that set the whimsical, romantic, spring tone from the beginning. The pastel green envelope was lined with dried pressed flowers and the invitation was handwritten in a cursive font and sealed in a peach envelope. 

So many different styles came together in this shoot to create one cohesive look that we are totally crushing over. The rustic venue was full of modern touches and next to the color scheme and florals it took on a whimsical feel and was topped off with gold elegant touches.
