Granville Farms Real Wedding
Shannon and Taylor’s wedding was an absolute dream. They were married at the beautiful Granville Farms at Lake Helen, Florida. Nestled among 22 acres of stunning pine trees, this venue set a breathtaking scene for both the ceremony and reception.
The rustic ceremony area, complete with a grand fireplace, was the perfect backdrop for their I DOs. Following, Shannon and Taylor had their first dance beneath a dazzling chandelier in the 7,000 sq foot barn. Surrounded by a room full of loved ones. Their special day included beautiful floral, that fit their theme perfectly. Thus portraying a romantic and classic yet rustic feel. Along with the rustic interior, the venue offers 22 acres of lush, colorful landscapes and cozy gathering areas. Granville Farms is a dream destination all couples seeking both tranquil beauty and luxurious comfort.
Shannon and Taylor chose a traditional chair setting with lanterns surrounded by greenery as aisle décor. The popular brown, farmhouse style chairs matched the interior of Granville Farms perfectly. The dark wood crossbeams provided a warm feeling for the ceremony on their special day. This location provide ample lighting for later ceremony times as well. The happy couple used the grey stone fireplace and mantle as their backdrop. Therefore, the bridal party attire, as well as the couples attire, popped beautifully.
This rustic wedding set a beautiful scene for the happy couple to get married. The bride wore a lace and floral patterned dress with a short trail. Her veil framed the couples attire well. In contrast, to her white, lacey wedding dress, the groom wore a traditional black suit. The suit was paired with a white rose boutonniere to compliment the bride’s bouquet. The groomsmen matched the grooms attire, while the bridesmaids wore different fabrics in a nude color palate. For all of those reasons, the bridal parties attire contrasted beautifully against the outdoor scenery and the indoor, rustic feel.
Granville Farms has a large interior area for both ceremony and reception spaces. Shannon and Taylor converted their ceremony space into the reception space during their cocktail hour. They used the same chairs from the ceremony as the seating for the reception. This is a very cost effective idea for all couples on their wedding day. Furthermore the couple used the greenery and lanterns from their ceremony as the centerpieces for their reception. In addition to the rustic, elegant reception was their four-tier cake decorated with simple, white sugar paper flowers. The happy couple chose to include macarons and tarts as their other dessert options. What better way to celebrate a happy union than sweet desserts.
