We were honored when San Diego Style Weddings asked us to style a fabulous, out of the box and jaw dropping photo shoot at the secluded and one of a kind venue – Willow Creek Ranch in Valley Center. We chose the theme – Southern Wedding! This venue added a sense of romance and light to this styled shoot. The design of this shoot incorporated many vintage items from the décor to the table scape. The bistro chairs and cake table were provided by Raphaels Party Rentals, but Willow Creek Events was gracious enough to lend us some of their gorgeous vintage-inspired items, as well. These beautiful photos are abundant with tasteful pastel colors such as teals, light pinks, and greens that enhance the feel of Southern Love.
So what makes a southern wedding? A traditional southern wedding might include detailed table settings and vintage touches throughout, all to preserve a classic elegance. We decided to stick to the classic theme by incorporating rustic chargers (Pier One), atop beautiful floral print china with gold silverware accents, provided by Not My Dish. These settings were topped with simple and sweet menus by Love Notes Stationery who designed all the southern wedding styled print. The table was draped perfectly with lace linens from Sweet Ribbons Events to add a touch of romance.
The colors were displayed in beautifully crafted floral pieces by Design Works Floral. From the accent bouquet to the centerpieces, these stunning arrangements added to our theme throughout.
Vintage furniture was integrated in the design to tie everything together. The Lucca Bistro Chairs were accented with “Darlin” and “Gent” for the bride and groom. These were the perfect elements that allowed the table to take center stage. The peach colored royale chairs accented the table ends and added vintage elegance to the setting.
Two fabulous cake were designed by Grove Pastry Shop. The main cake was kept a classic white, but accented with sugar flowers, beautiful gems and pearls to add vintage glamour. There was also a guitar-shaped groom’s cake which shared one of the many traditions of Southern weddings!
From the flowers to table setting, every aspect looked fantastic, and thanks to the fantastic skills of Mr. and Mrs. Wedding Duo photography the design was captured flawlessly. At Your Side Planning is proud to have been a part of this gorgeous shoot. A big thank you to all involved in making this photo shoot a success!
