Green Pastures Shoot – Bar Cart Styling

When we were asked to put together a shoot based around styling a bar cart for Brides of Austin with talented friend and photographer, Sophie Epton, we immediately replied YES! After all, the bar is one of the most visited parts of your wedding… Guests gather around to grab a cocktail, mingle with other guests, and sometimes use it as an escape from the dance floor. Or, dare we say, it gives them the courage to hit the dance floor?

Utilizing our Marlowe bar cart, we styled it two different ways. One was with floral arrangements and candles, perhaps as a beautiful addition to your ceremony backdrop? Who doesn’t want gorgeous, jewel-toned blooms by Petals Ink to be apart of their wedding? We’ll give you a hint: nobody.

Our other option was for a traditional bar setup, and we used some of our favorite pieces from our mid-century collection of glassware and barware. With the addition of dainty details that tied the entire look together (we’re talking about you, floral ice cubes) and an accompanying lounge area fit for only the most beautiful of brides in a Dalena Vintage gown, we’d say this shoot was definitely one of the most beautiful we’ve been apart of.

Of course, the backdrop for the shoot is what truly tied the entire look together. Green Pastures, thank you for letting us inspire brides with your gorgeous property!

This shoot can also be viewed in the current issue of Brides of Austin.
