This beautiful Southern wedding from Black & Hue Photography is the epitome of rustic chic! Ashley and Brian’s Tallahassee wedding is the perfect marriage of black tie style and a romantic barn location. The historical grounds of the Goodwood Museum and Gardens could not have been more perfect for their classic vintage affair. The gardens surrounding the restored plantation-style manor offered a beautiful location for their heartfelt ceremony – even in the winter, the Florida greenery and gently draping Spanish Moss could not have been a more lush backdrop!
Ashley and her gorgeous bridesmaids got ready in the elegant manor house, before taking portraits through the gardens. The rich palette of cherry red and ivory with black tie details looked incredible against the deep green of palmetto fronds and orange trees. The romantic, draping silhouettes of their mismatched gowns kept things comfortable in the Florida heat, while the floor-length skirts played well with Brian and his groomsmens’ black tuxes and bow ties!
Although they chose not to see each other before the ceremony, this sweet couple shared an intimate moment before seeing each other at the end of the aisle. They exchanged letters and read them just steps apart in the gardens! After their vows in front of the manor house, Bryan of Black & Hue escorted them throughout the gardens to capture the rich, golden light of magic hour. They rejoined their guests in the elegantly restored carriage house. The exposed wooden eaves and long farm tables offered a relaxed atmosphere, the perfect example of a rustic chic wedding! Lush ivory rose centerpieces lined the tables, warmed by the glow of hundreds of candles. The bride’s mother, Carol, was the mastermind behind their beautiful farmhouse chic decor!
