TRENDSETTING - An Elegant Equestrian Styled Shoot

To showcase the new Diehl Farms venue we created a stylized photoshoot dubbed 'Elegant Equestrian', which combined classic Southern elements with vintage touches, along with character unique to Diehl Farms.

A ceremony in the rolling pasture featured weathered wooden benches and cowhide ottomans mixed with chiavari chairs for an eclectic look, and an antique church window created the perfect alter arch.

A cocktail hour lounge space featured a vignette of cowhorn chairs and loveseat accented with pillows in persimmon velvet and leather, all aside a trio of hay wheels.

A feasting table inside the stable sat perched beneath a swag of garland, dressed in hemstitch linen runner and floral embroidered overlay with vintage china and an assortment of cowhide chairs and mahogany chiavaris, while a charming sweetheart table sat beneath a giant wagon wheel chandelier.

A colorful beverage station featured a peachy shade of punch with orange-sugar rimmed crystal glasses and birch paper straws.

A bountiful dessert cart housed displays of pie pops, butterscotch milks, and other sweet treats, while an hors d'oeuvre display offered delectable appetizers that incorporated a nod to the tomato farm as well.

Inspiration for the escort card display came from the farm's main crop - tomatoes; lined up inside crates and pinned with gold vellum leaves to direct guests to their assigned tables.

Even the floral centerpieces and bride's bouquet were accented with colorful tomatoes.

The models were styled in an "All American" look, with elegant yet soft hair, flowing dresses, and layered necklaces.

So many lovely details everywhere you looked!

Katie and Adam - A Southern Summer Wedding at the Farm

Katie and Adam - A Southern Summer Wedding at the Farm

What better color combo for a summertime wedding than Strawberry and Lemon?!  This bride and groom had a Southern summer vision for their wedding day with accents of wine barrels, mason jars, watering cans, and stacks of books to represent the bride’s love of reading and career as a teacher. Guests even found their custom escort card bookmarks elegantly placed in between the pages of some of the couple’s favorite novels!  With a nod to the fruity color combo, a self-serve Arnold Palmer station offered guests refreshing lemonade, strawberry lemonade, and southern sweet tea. A tower of assorted cupcakes satisfied everyone’s sweet tooth before sending off the bride and groom as through a sea of fluttering pom poms showing off their University of Florida and Michigan State pride!

Blair and Jake - A Country Couture Wedding

Blair and Jake - A Country Couture Wedding

There’s no better way to say "I Do" than on a breezy autumn day with a waterfront view at Davis Island Garden Club. Blair and Jake exchanged their vows amongst family and friends in Southern style surrounded by the lush garden setting. This country couture wedding was perfectly accented with vintage-style furniture as outdoor seating where guests could lounge and enjoy a mini cigar bar.  Classic beverage dispensers offered a variety of refreshing lemonades and teas. To honor the couple’s journey, guests found their seats at tables reflecting places to which Blair and Jake had traveled. Each table was adorned with flickering votive candles surrounding lanterns or tall floral arrangements of curly willow with violet and ivory stock. String canopy lighting floated above while family and friends gathered at the food stations offering unique choices such as a salad and biscuit bar, chicken and potatoes, or brisket and mac n cheese. If guests saved room for dessert, a large wine barrel displaying a stand of assorted cupcake flavors would satisfy their sweet tooth.
