Woodland Inspiration Wedding Shoot

Recently we partnered with a fantastic group of Tampa wedding vendors to create an inspirational woodland styled wedding at Casa Lantana. The details came together beautifully and we were thrilled to see the photographs featured on Ruffled blog. Now, we're delighted to share them with you!

A little dish on how we crafted our menu...

We thought a lot about the desired style and location of the event, creating a woodland chic menu that felt delicately bold in both flavor and appearance. Earthy ingredients included those you would find from the forest floor and robust proteins such as lamb and short ribs. Each plate was completed with complimentary garnishes including edible lavender and pops of fresh fruits and tiny veggies to add to the whimsical fantasy of the wedding.
