Luxurious Vintage Farm Styled Shoot from JPC Event Group

Death to burlap and mason jars!

I'm kidding, of course.  I'll always love the rustic look.  But just because your wedding is in a barn doesn't mean you have to go with this style for your big day!  On the contrary, the juxtaposition of a rich color palette, sparkly elements, and luxe textures against the wooden beams of a barn can be absolutely stunning.  Burgh Brides Vendor Guide members Rustic Acres Farm and Garnish Event Design (both of JPC Event Group) know this all too well, and hopefully this styled shoot from them will help you think outside the mason jar.

To show off the venue and their floral and design chops, Garnish curated a look that was one part vintage, one part extravagant, and all parts divine.  Antique china, velvet settees, sequin linens, and vibrant, lush florals come together beautifully and provided a surprising pop of excitement.  With the help of crystal chandeliers, shiny gold touches, and sheer draping, the barn was transformed into an enchanted setting.  Couple the perfectly-styled decor with Savor Fresh Catering's farm-to-fete creations and unique food presentations, and you have the makings of a real party!

And that's exactly what this styled shoot turned into.  After all the details (and even a few models!) were photographed, the special guests arrived to explore the venue and to indulge their senses in just a sampling of what JPC as a whole can do.  Luckily, if you weren't there, you can relive the beauty below…or you can plan to attend the Rustic Acres Farm Open House & Garnish Event Design Floral Showcase on May 15!  Be there for the reveal of recent farm renovations, taste the fresh offerings of Savor, see some of Pittsburgh's most talented wedding vendors in action, and let the incredible designs of the entire JPC Event Group inspire your own wedding day!

As you scroll through the photos below, be sure to also keep your eyes peeled for other Vendor Guide members Event Source and Steven Vance Violin & DJ Music!  Magic happens when good people come together!

From Jody Wimer of JPC Event Group…

For the design of the event, I really wanted to do a vintage/ethereal forest/Anthropology feel with the moss, vines, and lush florals.  The fabulous leaf applique silk linens and velvet furniture added a sumptuous, luxe feel to the theme.  And our newly-crafted Amish farm tables were divine with gorgeous foliage garlands and vintage, golden-accented China and stemware from Event Source that I was dying to showcase.  Every detail attacked your senses – from the tactile luxurious feel of things to the beauty of eating with your eyes first.
With food, I always try to be as “out there”, showing people that there is a whole side to “catering” that they don't know exists beyond the stereotypes.  We have a funny saying that “We build a restaurant for every wedding we produce.”  But it's so true because we insist on fresh cooking with the best ingredients.  So for this event, I wanted to really showcase that paradigm by creating the made-to-order pairing bar where our chefs created custom one bites and craft cocktails from a menu as each guest ordered.  It was so fun!  And people loved it.
We also featured an elegant display of hors d'oeuvres and hand-passed appetizers, all made with peak seasonal spring produce like asparagus and spring peas.  This just reaffirmed our commitment to fresh, sustainable catering.  As we say, “From farm to fete!”
