You know what’s the ultimate cure for the late-winter blues? Try a pop of color like the photo by Rachel Elaine above, a slightly boho reception situation like we’ve got below, and one killer farm wedding venue. Actually this is the second time this week we’ve seen barn venues get a modern makeover. If the details are as surprising and inventive as the ones Maxwell + Gray just whipped up at Summerfield Tate Farms, we say keep ’em comin’!

Surprise no. 1: black, deep magenta, and marsala contrasted with winter whites.

*Gasp.* Don’t you just want to head right over to Summerfield Tate Farms in Texas and see this place for yourself? Us too.

Focusing on rich color palettes for both the floral, bridal makeup and desserts, this set the tone for making a boho and moody farm come alive! We chose two custom gowns from Lillian West for the shoot to showcase both a modern two-piece ensemble worn modest for a traditional feel as well as a romantic, vintage gown finished out from head to toe with the most dainty lace and endless rows of buttons on buttons. For the tabletop, we wanted to bring in minimalistic aspects to a space filled with such character, texture, old lines, and acres and acres of raw space just waiting to be filled with color and life.

Love how flawlessly the team translated their color story through the entire scene.

Working with a creative team combined with modern and edgy details, filled with twirling, dancing, laughter and everything you would hope to find in a wedding day, our hope was to create a vision that was inviting and bold while working with approachable vendors and designs for brides to incorporate into their wedding day.

Mission. So. Accomplished. Thanks for sharing, guys!
