A Wedding Vendor Dinner

What’s better than seeing a wedding head table setting idea? How about six of them, from six different wedding pros!

multiple wedding table ideas with flowers arranged in various styles. Wedding couple and beautiful wedding dress.

Better yet, this included a styled shoot, and a dinner party for wedding vendors. We work events together, but don’t really get a moment to talk or get to know each other very well. With wedding season starting in full at the start of April, the timing was perfect! Photos by Life with a View Studio unless otherwise marked.

It’s Painted White!

For several months… ok, a year… maybe more, I’ve wanted to paint the barn white inside. To me, the dark rustic-ness didn’t fit the Cottage or feel seamless with it. The Cottage is bright and happy inside, and a little trendy.

The red oak in the barn didn’t feel that way. We had the trendy lighting (which is easier to see now, and I loooooove that) but it didn’t jump out well against the natural walls.

Now I feel like all of our black hardware makes a statement, and the brick in our floors is more apparent as well. Brick will be in a few places throughout the venue as we keep adding.

It adds a more modern vibe too. It’s so light, bright and happy in here, even on a SUPER cloudy day. Our location under so many trees in the forest puts us in the shade much of the year.

These are all iphone photos, which (for me) are not the easiest to edit — I prefer to shoot in raw and edit in lightroom nowadays. Our lovely couple from yesterday’s wedding left the flowers from the arbor behind just so I could come up with a quick tablesetting for this blog post. We seriously have the best couples.

Florals were by Creighton’ Wildflowers, over in Chickamauga. Faith is so talented — isn’t this beautiful?

Stay tuned for more — we have a few fun photoshoots lined up with some of Chattanooga’s best, most talented wedding vendors!
