French Garden Party

Chic European inspired details look sweet in this dreamy garden party. For this styled shoot, we decided to incorporate two of our favorite themes: gorgeous French inspiration in a distinctly historical Florida Keys setting, The Truman Little White House.

 The ceremony arch was styled with a simple light-colored bamboo canopy draped in white fabric and accented with white phalaenopsis orchids. We chose the soft, but vibrant color palette after being inspired by the fabric we used- a classic French toile in a beautiful hue of olive green and white, complemented with pops of yellow, pink and gold. The Truman Little White House with its rich history, garden-like setting of large shade trees and lots of lush, greenery was the perfect backdrop for an intimate garden party.

Mix in a historic site, lots of lace, a bride and groom in their wedding attire, gorgeous decor elements, a chandelier suspended from a tree, and a geometric black and white dance floor with a twist and you have all the elements for a chic, classy soiree! To keep a semi-rustic, provincial feel, we opted for wooden-x-back chairs and a custom, wooden farmhouse table for the sweetheart table, complete with an ivory loveseat and olive green pillows.

The tables were designed in a traditional country French style with arrangements of antique dutch hydrangea, dutch yellow tulips and yellow french garden roses. The tables were accented with gold candelabras, gold beaded glass chargers, gold flatware and gold-rimmed glassware. To complete the look, we used a simple but gorgeous naked cake accented with theme florals and greenery.

Lastly, the stationary, presented in hues of cream, green and yellow, accented the tables in the form of place cards, menus and table numbers.
