Midcentury Modern Farmhouse Wedding Inspiration (With A Pretty Ruffle Cake!)

Midcentury modern chairs, stylish concrete candle holders, lush roses & eucalyptus, sexy copper timepieces, and everyday attire – today’s styled shoot is like our favorite Brooklyn lifestyle shop came to life in wedding form (hello, dream world!)

With a balance of modern wedding attire and midcentury furniture, this farmhouse wedding inspiration blends all of our favorite trends in design and style. The shoot is classically pretty (thanks to plenty of lace and roses) and masculine and warm (thanks to deep tones and wooden details).

And the cake, oh the cake! As if we weren’t obsessed enough with ruffled dresses, we’re spoiled with a dramatic & clean white ruffled cake. If you’re looking for a serious wow factor on your dessert table, not only will this beauty impress, but we’d bet it would match just about any color and wedding-day style.

Our overall inspiration was to take this farmhouse-styled venue and add some modern touches to keep it natural and dreamy! Perfect for the bride who wants a  touchmodernity without sacrificing a timeless and organic look! We would describe the overall aesthetic as a “modern farmhouse” with a whimsical touch.

The venue was built on a true passion for love and family. The owners, Jessica and Kyle, said “I do” under the same tree we set out to create our ceremony backdrop. We decided to do a floral tree installation to have a natural look with just the right amount of blooms!

The aisle was marked by modern mid-century inspired planters filled with foraged greens and blooms of white and soft blush hues. The ceremony site had a sentimental story, and the chairs did, too! The mid-century modern chairs, manufactured in the 1950s by Haywood Wakefield, were salvaged from an old school house in Chicago. The contemporary ceremony chairs still felt natural, with strong wood tones and a simple design.

As our models walked down the aisle carrying our hand-tied bouquet, we knew we got it right! Erin’s makeup by Laura Reynolds Artistry created a youthful, natural look that perfectly matched her romantic falling curls. Erin wore a Maggie Sottero gown provided by Lola Grace Bridal Boutique, featuring a gorgeous lace-detailed back and flowing skirt! Mason was the perfect match, and the two models had us falling in love as they brought life into our vision!

The front barn doors are breathtaking as you drive up to the venue and look out on the property. We knew it was just the perfect place to stage the dessert table. Lauren with Sweet Flours created a whimsical yet clean aesthetic for the cake. We chose our modern white buffet as the cake table accented with stylish industrial tea light votives by Southern Reclaim Co. and our mid-century planters lush with foraged greens and white and blush tone blooms. Deep blue candlesticks in our brass vintage candlesticks on the table elevated the design with another layer of timelessness.

As evening struck, we moved inside the barn, where the scene turned dramatic and magical! We used natural farmhouse tables, which integrated the natural wood from the surrounding trees. Our tablescape featured actual vintage mid-century modern tabletop pieces, including Russel Wright American Modern dinnerware and vintage gold Diriylte Empress flatware accented with marble chargers. We incorporated cool blue tones with the china and pops of soft blush tones through the floral arrangements!

Combinations of rustic and modern pieces were used to tailor the vintage and farmhouse inspirations into an evolved, chic design. Jelly Press’ paper goods designed a fun and artistic suite perfect for the bride who wants a romantic theme throughout the wedding!
