This Morning Glory Farm wedding shoot came to life while Sabrina and I were planning our Summer trip to Spain. We absolutely love Spanish culture and decided to marry their colors and textures with one of our favorite Charlotte wedding venues, Morning Glory Farm. Our goal was to create something classic and timeless without going overboard with the elements… there’s just too many choices with Pinterest and Instagram these days.
For the flowers, we selected a bright pink bridal bouquet to resemble the bougainvillea you see all over the streets of Seville and then mixed in some clay vases and planters that you’d typically see outside restaurants there.
The featured cocktail is called “Tinto de Verano.” It is half lemon spritzer + red wine, perfect for a scorching hot afternoon. We paired that with a charcuterie board, and things that could be eaten with fingers, just like the tapas you’ll find all over Spain.
Though the bridal gown was not a flamenco styled dress we chose something that was easy to maneuver in and flow-ey so she could be comfortable mingling in an outdoor environment. We thought putting the bride in some designer leather flats would add a nice Spanish touch – easy footwear, yet bridal-appropriate. Please take a look at how it turned out and follow the super-talented vendors who played a part (links to their sites are below).
This shoot was not intended to be filled with numerous frilly details, but rather uncomplicated non-fussy elements for real brides to get ideas from. Not every wedding has to break the bank. It is easy to pull together a backyard wedding with inspiration from you and your fiancé’s most-loved travel.
