These vendors are redefining what it means to be a rustic bride. Who says you can’t mix a whole lot of glam, elegance, and rustic in the same setting?! With open air concepts being a big hit with guests since the days of Covid 19, we took this styled shoot to an open field, fresh air, and picturesque background!

The location of this unique wedding shoot was The Barn at Royal Gait in Trinity, North Carolina. This premier wedding venue is situated among rolling pastures and a century old wedding barn. While they have hosted countless weddings in their barn, the owners wanted to try something new! Just because a wedding venue has a well-known popular ceremony or reception area, do not be afraid to take things out of the box for your special day. We took it to a new location never before used during a ceremony or reception and we are shook over the results!

Our planners for this shoot took the concept of an intimate field elopement and planned a beautiful Tuscan themed color pallet. From the burnt amber napkins and apricot-colored candles to the crystal chandeliers, this was a magical dinner under the stars.

Florals were created with hints of cream, white, and orange, along with a beautiful moss table runner with pampas grass, highlighting the wedding dress perfectly. We were all so joyful to have this vision come to life.

The delicious, white, and orange custom cake did not disappoint and as the sun began to set, a unique mobile bespoke cocktail service was the perfect way to get the party started.

If your dream wedding is to have an intimate outdoor dinner reception, our goal was to plan something that would inspire you to plan your own.
