Inspired by her upbringing on a small rural farm and summers spent at horse camp, this styled shoot from Tara Libby Photography is a charming nod to what we call fall around the Sunshine State. You'll crush over the golden light streaming through the tall pines and how the pops of bright red make the whole scenery cheerful. Enjoy!
"I have been endlessly dreaming of doing a shoot that incorporated a Florida based country wedding with rustic Southern details throughout" says Tara. "When I reached out to Forever Florida to shoot this session at their breathtaking venue I was ecstatic that they agreed, simply because after touring their facility and grounds I couldn't have imagined it elsewhere. With over 4,000 acres of conservation land, horses and riding stables, plus a new facility to host weddings, it was undoubtedly the perfect place."
The creative team carried the autumn tones throughout all the details starting with hair and makeup. A few flowers adorned the brides loose curls and her eyes were done up in golden browns and lips in bold red. She carried a hand-picked bouquet of red blossoms and greenery and wore flannel and a flirty lace skirt with her cowgirl boots, of course!
Seasonal apples and pies were plentiful at the sweetheart and dessert tables. I love the cute red gingham napkins and the equestrian ribbon garland!
The mixture of the warm sunlight and breathtaking views provided a charming insight of what a true Florida autumn wedding day looks like. Forever Florida's conservation land provided an abundance of shooting locations and gorgeous natural lighting which created the perfect backdrop for our shoot. We chose to utilize multiple locations as they were plentiful, different areas created a bold rich ambiance while other's were light and airy.
Last but not least our adorable couple (Melissa and Tyler) are engaged to get married this winter and they couldn't keep their hands off of one another. All-in-all we had a lovely day!
How incredible is that golden hour sunlight!? Thanks for sharing this sweet inspiration everyone!
