Wedding Inspiration for the Garden Sophisticate
by Brynlee Handy September 20
The garden sophisticate is a classy act to follow, with sights set on a more traditional wedding design that planner Middleton Events styled to be both luxe and effortless in mood! In the gallery below, Caitlin Rose Photography captured a secluded, secret garden vibe that will work with any number of guests, as long as the setting is as lush as UMLAUF Sculpture Garden + Museum where the serenity of nature and maturity of modern art meet. Enhance an intimate garden wedding with overgrown floral arrangements in varying white blooms from Reiley + Rose bringing even more romance into play. Exquisite was the bride’s strapless Unbridaled gown that she modeled among the greenery. A petal appliquéd piece of art, the gown’s open neckline encouraged Think Brink Beauty to style her with half-up hair and natural, rosy glam bridal makeup. Finally, a few dainty gems and fine jewelry from Nicole Mera complete the whole gorgeous look. Acrylic always adds a modern touch and this signage by Owl & Envelope is simply divine, its translucence making it not at all out-of-place with the natural scenery. An elegant seating chart led guests to an outdoor reception where crisp white linens pop on a baby blue tablescape that held décor, place settings and more from Whim Hospitality, plus seated with romantic, natural bentwood chairs. A few potted herbs added a continued garden feel to the mix and for something sweet at the end of the celebration, Sweet Treets Bakery created a blue, four-tiered wedding cake dream complete with gold leaf and agrarian details that tie in all the whimsical and organic aspects of the editorial. Read on for a note from planner Middleton Events who envisioned the design and styling of this garden sophisticate wedding inspiration. Cheers!

From the planner, Stephanie with Middleton Events: “My inspiration for the shoot was a secret garden. I wanted the tablescape design to incorporate garden elements like potted herbs, plants and neutral blooms to create a timeless and romantic scene. The UMLAUF Sculpture Garden + Museum was the perfect backdrop to have my vision come to life!”
