French Country Wedding Shoot
French Country Wedding Shoot.
From planner and stylist Sarah Duckworth: I am so excited to introduce the world to Dove Meadows - a new, charming, barn style venue now open in Monroe, just outside of Charlotte.
When designing this shoot, we immediately thought of the french countryside, which was effortless thanks to the rolling hills of farm land and the sweet little pond all situated on it's gorgeous 15 acre property.
Dove Meadows isn't like any other old barn turned wedding venue - Owner Ashley Tolar completely transformed this barn in to a neutral oasis with white washed walls, upgraded fixtures and a bridal suite that could make any bride blush! If I didn't know any better, I would have thought the barn was straight out of a Joanna Gaines handbook for shiplap! A rustic styled shoot just wasn't going to do this space justice, it's far too elegant for that! Instead we found ourselves inspired by the charm of the south with a little prep, mixed with a the soft french countryside; the result was breathtaking!
Imagine driving down an old dirt road to your own little paradise, tucked away from all but the sound of crickets and a welcomed breeze. A ceremony that overlooks a sweet little bond and beyond that, God's untouched beauty, the day just gets better from there!
From the custom olive oil favors to the lush floral designs, we hope this shoot inspires many future brides to see the endless possibilities that are all offered at Dove Meadows.
