Mix fine china, fanciful floral displays, and woodsy backdrop, and you have yourself the ideal vintage wedding inspiration with a bohemian twist! Nestled in the wide open spaces of the Florida countryside, an equestrian rescue farm plays host for this intimate display. The pairing of this natural, rustic environment with a design that is lush and elegant has a certain organic humility that we cannot deny. Rising Lotus Photography paints us a stunning portrait of what an enchanting love affair looks like through their delightful recollection in photos.

Vintage Wedding Inspiration

The surroundings lay the foundation for the color palette and the floral arrangements: an abundance of greenery - a nod to the pasture land - apricot tones that reference the warm Florida sunlight, and precious pinks and purples that really give the entire theme that bohemian look. With the reception set in a barn, the tablescape's jewel toned hues create a warm welcome and the gold accents play off of the blonde wood surrounding the space. The embroidered table cloth adds an intricate layer of texture while its ivory color keeps it from competing for attention. Just imagine the china to be family heirlooms collected over time or treasures collected from charming antique shops. The floral arrangements were kept eye level to encourage conversation and all eyes on the table settings. Even the horses are enamored with this setup!

The bride seems to have stepped out of a renaissance romance with her exquisite gold and cream beaded cap-sleeved gown by Gossamer. In keeping with the natural aesthetic, a floral crown was set atop her dreamy updo. Ivelisse Quiles of IQ of Beauty created a radiant look using plum tones that were soft, pretty and inspired by the crown's colors. After spending a few quiet moments with her favorite horse, the bride met her groom and they exchanged vows on the vast farmland as the sun rose. What gorgeous imagery! And as the final vintage touch, a classic car whisked them away to a secret place in the woods. Take notes, ladies, because the bar has officially been raised! This redefines romance.
