Inspired by our selected venue, a property rich in history is apparent through the remains of a house burned and rebuilt three times since the early 1700’s, as well as the more than one thousand year old Angel Oak in the center of the property. This iconic tree seemed the perfect haven to embrace a post nuptial, intimate gathering and dinner. It’s grandiose and twisted branches creating the perfect environment for both the enchanting dining table and the opulent groom’s lounge and bourbon bar.
To set off the style, a collection of textures and materials were utilized, ranging from light drift wood tables and Marie Antoinette chairs, mixed with luminescent crystal and light grey/lavender laces, bronze metallics and white washed iron. Adding pops of deep burgundy discernible in the bride’s dramatic make up, flowers and lounge area rug.
The long dining table, set perfectly under the canopy of branches so long, they fell to the ground, was set under crystal bird cages and a sweeping drape of lace. The twisted bronze and silver flatware, cut work ceramic chargers and lavender lace napkins accented with vintage style brooches, set up each place setting perfectly. The centrescapes in vintage silver, depict a garden whimsy of kale, ivy, and confederate jasmine vines accented with maiden hair fern. Entwined in the greens flowers in creams and deep reds included stock, kangaroo paw, agapanthus, green cymbidium orchids and complimenting garden roses.
Additional areas housed around the perimeter of the tree included unique industrial style lighted letters spelling out LOVE and a glass top for displaying the bronze tiered cake. Accenting this area hung a lace drum shade chandelier and a floating gold framed mirror. Walking further around guests discovered the groom’s lounge and bourbon bar, featuring stylized flax colored, tufted lounge pieces set atop a deep red, ornate area rug.
