This Southern Wedding at Sainte Terre Nailed the Bride’s Farmhouse Whimsy Style

November 27, 2018 | juliette

Brittany and Taylor’s Louisiana wedding at Sainte Terre had all the elegance of a fairytale wedding with hints of southern farmhouse charm that made it truly remarkable. The bride knew she wanted to get married in a place where less was more but was also full of character, so when the couple found a venue that offered both a sweet little white chapel and a large modern farmhouse for the reception, they were sold! The talented venue team took care of nearly every detail, from coordination to catering, but also allowed the couple to add personal touches — such as subtle nods to Disney with a glass slipper cocktail and Beauty and the Beast inspired cake from Meg’s Silver Palate Cakery. Their wedding was airy, bright, and the perfect balance of rustic and sophisticated with farmhouse tables, luxurious linens, and eye-catching floral installations. No detail went unnoticed Andy Roberts Photography, who captured the magic of this southern fairytale wedding in every frame!

The Couple:

Brittany and Taylor

The Wedding:

Sainte Terre, Benton, Louisiana

My wedding day fashion was inspired by truly wanted an exaggerated fairytale gown with a form-fitting, sexy look for the reception. I chose an A-line skirt and cathedral-length veil for the ceremony that I traded for a Moroccan silk form-fitting gown and flower crown for the reception.

Originally, I opted out of a traditional wedding band on the wedding day due to our wedding budget (but secretly really had my eye a gorgeous rose gold miss match band early on in our engagement). Taylor blew me away by surprising me with the gorgeous band during a quiet moment between the two of us before the ceremony!

I have always been a fan of the farmhouse charm look, as well as “less is more.” Sainte Terre came with the traditional quaint white chapel tucked in the woods with the modern farmhouse charm I had always dreamed of, and I knew that was it and I had met my match!

Other than serving a few specific things at the reception, Taylor’s only request was that we write our own vows. I honestly wasn’t too keen on the idea at first thinking about reading aloud our vows in front of all our guests with wedding jitters flowing. Taylor is incredibly sweet but he isn’t usually a public display of feelings type of guy. So hearing him speak the most beautiful words over me and holding back tears at our ceremony was the most memorable part of our wedding day.

With all of the resources and wedding websites out there, it’s easy to get lost in the details. Remember, it’s only one day. Don’t sweat the small stuff! Take it all in and soak it all up. From the engagement to all the days in between to the honeymoon. It’s such a fleeting yet precious time in your life, so enjoy every single second.
