As you enter the iron gates of Casa Lantana, a private, twelve-acre estate, you’re immediately whisked from the exhilirating hustle and bustle of Tampa Bay into a romantic oasis. Fountains, balconies, three acres of woodland, and ancient oaks with Spanish moss color this venue with natural beauty for a styled shoot reminiscent of a French countryside wedding.
Simple scripted invitations by Korynne and Company were anything but basic. Wrapped in golden ribbon and sealed with wax and vintage stamps, the suite set the tone for the wedding’s elevated European style.
The gorgeous bride wore a dreamy, high neck blush wedding dress with delicate, beaded lace from Truly Forever Bridal, her long curled hair pulled into a ponytail finished with a white and copper floral pin by Adore Bridal. Her natural makeup look let her bridal glow take center stage, and her dapper groom dressed in a black-tie tailored suit completed their timeless wedding aesthetic.
Lush earthy hues were incorporated throughout the reception’s tablescape design to match the property’s natural allure. Set and Styled’s head table seamlessly incorporated rustic and refined styles with details like vintage china, gold silverware, and clear glass drinkware pairing perfectly with satin napkins and taper candlesticks.
Blush, one of this year’s most popular wedding colors, was given new life when paired with accents of muted, burnt orange and pale yellow flowers courtesy of Save the Date Florida and coordinated with Arnold Jeweler’s ring that captured golden hour magic.
After saying I do under the weeping willows, the couple enjoyed Booze and Bubbles’s fresh take on the champagne tower, a champagne wall set against a bright wall of greenery, for a fitting French countryside wedding first toast. A light blue cake, with intricately iced baby’s breath and geraniums by Willow Wisp Cakes, was almost too beautiful to cut into. The couple and their guests spent the rest of the day celebrating while soaking in the afternoon air and the venue’s stately bucolic scenery.
