Event planner Primrose & Lily partner with Stephanie Alberse Photography for an elegant outdoor styled reception on the lawns of the historic Tucker House.

Situated in Raleigh, North Carolina, the Tucker House is in a neoclassical revival style and a popular venue for wedding receptions and ceremonies. With lush green lawns, inviting fireplaces, and traditional furnishings, it’s easy to see this site was chosen.

Wooden tables and chairs exude French countryside charm, made elegant with a simple white table runner and cream colored cushions. A trailing vine adds a bright pop of natural color.

Elegant chinaware pairs with elegant and blue tinted glasses. A blue napkin rolled up to resemble a rose adds a romantic touch, while canvas napkins tie together rustic undertones. 

The floral arrangement ties together blush, green, and blue tones. Roses, pops of color, and an overflowing array gives off the impression of freshly picked flowers. Transparent rose gold candle holders add jewel tones while keeping with the elegant, natural theme.

A second table arrangement leans more to dusty blues, with blue napkins and a vine of white and peach roses. Subtle geometric candle holders and elegant plates add gold tones. This is the perfect accent to the head table, adding color but keeping in theme.

This styled shoot is truly a beautiful inspiration for a garden, outdoor, or estate wedding. If you’re considering such a set up, consider an illusion lace wedding dress or even blush pink hue.
