The Barn at Cedar Grove Styled Shoot. An afternoon tea-inspired styled shoot sounds dreamy, chic, and sophisticated. However, this particular vision incorporates rustic and shabby touches to blend the classy occasion of afternoon tea with the charming quality of Bluegrass.

The color palette for this shoot focuses on blush, dark pink, and white. It’s the perfect complement to the natural tones of the landscape, the couple’s style, and even the sweet green ceiling of the Bride’s Quarters.

The bride wears a comfortable blush empire waist gown fashioned with sleeves and a flowing skirt, all of lace. Instead of a veil, she wears a handmade flower crown.

The gorgeous bouquet is gathered wildly and features tulips, dogwood, peonies and assorted greenery. It’s tied with a beautiful long pink ribbon.

The groom’s outfit is another extension of the style of the shoot. He wears a simple button-down shirt, suspenders, and brown pants. A little personality shines through his stylish specs.

The front porch of the Bride’s Quarters is a great spot to take a pause before heading over to the barn.

The entrance to the barn is transformed with white fabric panels and string lights across the rafters. It’s a welcoming and enticing scene.

The lovely reception space is brought to life with a simple wooden table with chairs, a white chest, and a lantern.

Additional touches like bowls of lemons, a jug of iced tea, and jars of homemade jam not only tell the story of the Southern location but add personality and color.

A simple cup of tea with sweet treats is such a lovely and pleasant way to celebrate such an afternoon occasion, especially for a small group.

Outside, the barn looks reception-ready with a large wreath dressed in flowers. The couple exit to make their way around the property.

The bride finds a small stream nearby and dances in the water. Her style is so easy and laid back that if an adventure awaits her, she can embrace it wholeheartedly.
