Dinner for Two Under the Oak Trees by Bloom Works

An Outdoor Sweetheart Table and Floral Ring in Shades of Pink by Raleigh Wedding Florist Bloom Works

With no beginning and no end, the circle symbolizes eternity. That romantic notion is represented with an engagement ring, but we are also huge fans of the floral ring as an accent to a wedding. For a Southern Bride and Groom tabletop editorial, Raleigh wedding florist Bloom Works created a romantic wedding dinner for two underneath a giant oak tree, on site at the beautiful Sutherland Estate in Wake Forest NC. The giant floral wreath beneath three crystal chandeliers makes a centerpiece backdrop for the sweetheart table. Romance abounds in blooms of every shade of pink.

Some of the Best Raleigh Wedding Vendors Create Vibrant Summer NC Wedding Inspiration

Southern Bride and Groom magazine loves to showcase dreamy wedding inspiration. We are proud to feature who we consider to be the best local Raleigh wedding vendors. This particular styled shoot was a true artistic collaborative effort.

The scene was conceived by Raleigh wedding florist Bloom Works. They built an incredible floral ring out of vines, coated in vibrant pink wedding flowers. Greenery drips off of the base, evoking a dream-catcher. The look is mimicked on the sweetheart table, in a low floral arrangement set atop greenery draped over the table.

Get Lit Event Lighting installed the dazzling crystal chandeliers. This final touch gave the ambiance of intimacy, even within the great outdoors.

Jamie Blow Photography perfectly captured the romantic scene at The Sutherland, one of the most beautiful Southern wedding venues near Raleigh.

Raleigh Wedding Florist Bloom Works Creates an Elegant Outdoor Tabletop Look

Bloom Works utilized natural elements to complement the outdoor setting. Wooden hatch back chairs from Party Reflections flow nicely with the earth and trees. Driftwood was used as a decor accent, as well as to house the centerpiece itself. Otherwise, the design oozes utter elegance, with a formal tabletop place setting of pinks and golds to match the flowers, topped with a beautiful custom menu by If It’s Paper. The bride and groom chairs are designated with mini floral rings that echo the large backdrop wreath.

LC Steele in a Romantic Wedding Day Look from Raleigh NC Wedding Vendors

The bride wears a long sleeved Essense of Australia gown from one of the best NC wedding boutiques, Lana Addison Bridal. Her wedding hair and makeup is styled by Bella Trio, and her jewels are from Bailey’s Fine Jewelry.

Do you happen to recognize the bride? It’s Lauren Steele – aka, LC Steele, the amazing fashion blogger. We were lucky to work with this beauty before she relocated out of the Raleigh area. No, that is not her real groom – but you might recognize him, too. Joe Kolousek is a local model who has graced the cover of Southern Bride and Groom magazine before – including with the lovely LC Steele. He looks mighty handsome in his fitted navy blue suit from Bernard’s Formalwear.
