Southern Bride and Groom Magazine loves when couples use their unique, personal visions to create one-of-a-kind wedding experiences. You don’t have to go with a traditional wedding to have a romantic and beautiful affair. At this past year’s floral shoot The English Garden, a Raleigh wedding florist, created a scene for the non-traditional bride. An urban mix of copper decor and metal accents mix with vintage comfort in this family style wedding reception at The Sutherland Estate in Wake Forest NC.

Copper Wedding Inspiration by Raleigh Wedding Florist, The English Garden

We are seeing the copper trend hit the ground running in weddings recently. Copper allows brides to mix metals if they want, creates an edgy vibe or in this case adds a bit of a vintage touch. Raleigh wedding florist, The English Garden, used copper accents paired with their vibrantly colorful floral arrangements to create this magical scene.

The Sutherland Wedding Venue in Wake Forest NC

The Sutherland is Wake Forest’s staple historic wedding venue. Transformed from its glory as a home estate to become the perfect backdrop to any Southern bride’s wedding day. The Sutherland features open gardens, historic buildings, a modern pavilion and so much more.

The indoor promenade is where this wedding reception floral inspiration by Raleigh wedding florist, The English Garden, took place. The promenade is a perfect NC wedding venue for brides that want an outdoor feel while still being under the protective cover of a roof. The ceilings are sky high, windows surround much of the space, and you have the option of opening up the glass doors to welcome a breeze.

Cottage Luxe has a wide range of beautiful furniture pieces that you can use for your NC wedding celebrations. Raleigh wedding florist, The English Garden, used Cottage Luxe’s copper chairs, and a shabby chic white farm table with matching bar set up. They added some of their own in-house accents too, including the books and lamp shades. Fun, patterned plates popped off of the tabletop, and were a fun pairing with the vintage books on which the floral arrangements are perched.
