Kentucky Derby Themed Wedding Photo Shoot

A spring day filled with beautiful horses, vibrant bow ties, big hats, mason jars, Bourbon, sweet tea, and two charming love birds saying ‘I Do!’ Sounds like a Kentucky Derby styled wedding that could only be dreamed up by two talented power houses, Limelight Photography & Très Chic Southern Weddings. As we all know the Kentucky Derby is a quintessential southern event, that showcases fun-vibrant infused traditions with bright colors, bow ties, big hats and pies. So inevitably Barrington Hill Farm was a no brainer when selecting a venue to execute the most fabulous Kentucky Derby inspired wedding shoot you've ever laid those full-lashed eyes on.

So let’s get down to the very fabulous details… The escort card table featured equestrian details with a saddle, horseshoes, bits, prestigious equestrian awards, and stunning Hermes scarfs, while showcasing the beautiful invitation and escort cards, which capture the essence of the Kentucky Derby.

The rustic reception table is a refurbished farm table made from old barn wood, beautifully styled with a navy and white striped runner, luscious florals, and  bowtie napkins on mix & match vintage dishes.The place cards are designed as place ribbons. The napkins are tied as Bow Ties and the menu cards feature bowties on top.
The dessert table showcases a lace detailed buttercream cake with a sugar peony and hydrangeas. But, what’s dessert without the best southern drinks, Lemonade + Sweet Tea complete with pink, green or blue striped paper straws and bows. The ceremony is kept simple to appreciate the gorgeous oak tree with a beautiful white iron and crystal chandelier.
