When the very talented Danielle Lateulade asked me to collaborate on a shoot at one of the most beautiful hidden gems of South Florida, Estancia Culinaria, I was head over heels. Estancia Culinaria is a private, family owned avocado farm outside of Miami that is one of the most unique wedding venues available. Because it’s so absolutely gorgeous we wanted to capture it’s beauty in all it’s glory while the sun was shining, so we came up with a Country Brunch theme. I had such an amazing time teaming up with a bunch of crazy talented vendors, it was just icing on the cake that we were featured on Green Wedding Shoes!
How amazing is this little chapel?! The family built the chapel completely out of coral rock with custom wood pews and crazy beautiful stained glass windows. Unearthed Vintage brought some amazing pieces and props to style, from mismatch chairs, to wood crates, gold flateware, and a custom gold table for our doughnut dessert spread. The list goes on and on, they’re the best of the best.
The gorgeous Jenna from Hot Pink Style stood in as our blushing bride with her fiance, Adam. You could truly feel the love between the two of them and it was like a trial run for their big day! Plus we felt so lucky to have a real couple on this shoot, made our fun day, love filled. Not only was Jenna our model, but Hot Pink Style also took care of all the dolling up. How stunning was she!
The lovely Laura from Make Merry created our wonderful cheery papery. The inspiration was southern hospitality and color from the mini paintings that we had used as favors at each place setting with some gold glitter thrown into the mix. She nailed it with the paint splotches, color and whimsy. I loved the recipe rsvp card and the little details from the place cards to the napkin wraps and carriage sign. She’s awesome.
I may have had to sample the crazy delicious concoction Chef Santi had created for our Signature Cocktail…. it tasted as good as it looks.
How fun are these geronimo balloons and tissue tassels from The Flair Exchange?! They make me oh so happy.
I myself have a sweet tooth, so we of course had to do a dessert spread… full of yummy doughnuts and cake. Sweet Treats by Jacks created our adorable cake, cake balls and pops. Cute and delicious, she’s such a sweetheart.
