A warm color palette of deep red, vibrant orange and cream paired with rustic décor set the mood for this boho-luxe styled shoot at a luxe barn in Eatonton, Georgia
In the woods of Eatonton, Georgia, there is a modern, luxe barn that created the most whimsical vibes for this boho-luxe styled shoot. With a warm color palette of deep red, vibrant orange and cream paired with rustic décor, this shoot was perfectly unique.
“It’s perfect for the bride who is laid back enough to get married in a barn,” said the photographer, “but luxe enough to have the finest finishes.”
Starting with the invitation suite, there were white papers with beautiful, sage handwritten calligraphy and intricate floral designs. The layout was surrounded by sprigs of fresh eucalyptus and deep red sequined ribbon.
As her dress hung delicately by a large window in the natural light, the bride lounged in a flowy orange tunic while she got her hair and makeup done. When she finally slipped into her bridal look, she looked like a bohemian princess.
She wore a sleeveless, ivory lace gown with a plunging neckline, romantic open back and tulle, lace-trimmed train. To add some vintage flair, she completed the look with a suede, burnt orange moto jacket with embroidered floral design on the lapels.
Her fiery red-orange hair was curled, styled in a low ponytail and adorned with a floral hairpiece, and she added a pair of gold, geometric drop earrings embellished with crystal stones.
The groom looked edgy and chic in a classic black suit, paired with funky socks reading “I love you more than coffee” and a tie with mallard ducks. His boutonniere was made of white daisies and lush eucalyptus.
In the bride’s bouquet, a warm fall color palette was brought to life with cream garden roses, baby’s breath, eucalyptus, pampas grass and bright red proteas. The arrangement was adorned with a beautiful rosary bead necklace and held together with a bone-colored linen ribbon.
Both the bride and groom wore multiple boho-vintage rings with unique statement stones, and proudly showed off their many colorful tattoos. Standing next to them, the bridesmaid wore a strapless, burnt orange jumpsuit with beautiful flowy details. She carried a delicate bouquet with a single garden rose, baby’s breath and a palm frond.
“This styled elopement was highly influenced by the colors of fall from the color palette of the details down to the bride's hair color,” said the photographer. “The details are all a rich and moody color but with apop of brightness.”
Out in the grass, there was a gorgeous arbor, created from large tree branches and decorated with a floral arrangement with palms and red roses, and a vibrant red drapery. Resting in front, there was a wooden sign reading, “unplugged ceremony.”
After the couple read their vows from small notebooks reading “his vows” and “her vows,” the bride and groom danced around the grass, spinning each other and soaking in every bit of love.
In another area on the lawn, a beautiful farm table was set with crossback chairs and a rustic-chic tablescape. There were wicker chargers, palm fronds tucked underneath glass dinner plates, forest green linens and acrylic crystal goblets.
Menus with beautiful handwritten calligraphy were placed on each plate and in the center of the table, there was a beautiful fall floral arrangement, burnt orange candlesticks and votive candles shaped like lotus flowers.
The wedding cake was a colorful display of taste and design. It was an ivory, two-tiered cake with floral design in every color of the rainbow. Perched on a wooden table made from large barrels, the cake was surrounded by plates of cookies, bags of coffee beans and a bottle of rosé.
In front of the table, there were stacks of books, vintage leather luggage, a basket weave vase with greenery and dried flowers, and a sign telling guests to: “Treat Yourself.”
Once the sun began to set, beautiful light beams coming through the lush green forest made the perfect shot for the couple by a rustic wooden fence. They held each other, showering each other with kisses and a lot of love.
“This shoot also chose a specific couple as an ode to the alternative couples out there with tattoos and body modification to show that though society may mark them as an outcast couple, they themselves make their day special,” said the photographer.
As the shoot came to a close, the couple clinked their Starbucks coffee cups, personalized with “Bride” and “Groom,” and watched the sun go down at the end of a perfect day.
