Escape into an enchanted woodland wedding styled shoot today with Rising Lotus Photography and a creative team of vendors based in Florida. With a love for nature, this whimsical woodland wedding will transport you to the magical forests of Casa Lantana in Brandon, Florida. While classic elements of a wedding day are presented, you will find some of our favorite top trends of this season showcased – a blush bridal gown, hanging cake and floral swing. The ethereal color palette of blush, champagne and gold complements this natural setting to perfection. If you have yet to discover your wedding style, this inspiration with event designer Pea to Tree Events and Hannah’s Florals and Events‘ design and décor will have you falling in love with this possibilities of a rustic, organic, woodland and whimsical fairytale day. And for couples that savor entertaining and socializing outdoors, there is a culinary menu to feast on by Olympia Catering.
Drawing inspiration from the enchanted woodland setting, All Brides 2 Be designed a custom blush wedding gown boasting hand-sewn petals along the train made to appear as if they are falling into the forest floor. The elements used throughout the shoot highlight how nature can mix with manmade elements and how classic blends with modern ambience. To illustrate, bark pieces serve as a uniquely creative way to list food items and reference the organic setting. Candelabras atop the tablescapes are a nod to old world elegance, while the lounge area has a modern feel. The details were styled with a whimsical yet modern approach so prospective brides can envision the design possibilities from an elegant affair to something more extravagant and opulent. Speaking of extravagant, there’s a butterfly headpiece finished in 18KT gold leaf seen at New York Fashion Week created by Dolly Donshey of Monstruosite. The floral hanging cake by Chantilly Cakes and the floral swing draw in our attention to detail and heightened romance.
It would take us pages of adjectives to pay tribute to this enchanted woodland wedding treat, but we know the images spoke for themselves! Now, hurry up and start pinning!
