Secret Garden Inspired Wedding by Kiss Me For Eternity Photography

Photos by Kiss Me for Eternity Photography

With its ample lush greens, whimsical decor and floral-filled tablescape, we’re obsessing over the secret gardens vibe of this delightful styled shoot captured by Kiss Me for Eternity Photography. A gorgeous greenery setting was easy to find at the Dallas Arboretum; foliage overhanging and intertwined in a worn wooden trellis created a picturesque backdrop for the table display. Lucite chairs gave a touch of modernity to the seating arrangements, while gold flatware, rimmed chargers and a delightfully stacked display of cheery English floral printed china completed each place setting, all from Posh Couture Rentals. Rounding out the table decor, daffodils, lilies, anemones and peonies took center stage in delicate arrangements by Lush Couture Floral. A brilliant teal and navy and white striped two-tier cake from Tart Bakery completed the setting, embellished with matching floral pieces to top off the delicious display. Look no further for your fix of gorgeous garden inspiration!
