You don’t have to travel far to find the perfect Tampa Bay venue for a bohemian chic, outdoor wedding. The Barn at Crescent Lake is located just minutes from Tampa and offers an authentically rustic, yet elegant feel. The outdoor venue features a waterfront barn, three ceremony options and a cabin for both the bridal party and groomsmen to relax in before their big day.
Tampa Bay wedding planners Exquisite Events teamed up with The Barn at Crescent Lake to style the perfect bohemian inspired wedding, complete with a beautiful woodsy backdrop and vintage design elements.
“We were inspired to put together a new and unique style with this shoot, while showcasing the natural, romantic beauty of the venue,” the Barn at Crescent Lake design team explained. “The bohemian, vintage theme gave us the opportunity to show the venue off in a new light by showing brides a new creative theme.”
The bridal party wore blush pink floor length Bella Bridesmaids dresses, which adorned each bridesmaid in a figure flattering way. Tampa wedding hair and makeup artist, Michele Renee the Studio, complemented the natural beauty of the bridal party with chic, beachy waves and dewy, light makeup.
The boho theme was evident in the styling of the wedding decor, which featured wooden farm tables and vintage accents from Tampa Bay wedding designer and rental company, Ever After Vintage Weddings and rustic chic chairs from A Chair Affair.
How would you describe your theme?
A bohemian theme, with vintage style and a natural twist. We decided to go with a theme that was unique and different from our past events, and that would showcase our venue in a different light to reach out to brides of all styles.
What were your colors?
We decided to keep our colors more neutral while incorporating bright pinks and reds to showcase the bohemian style. Our primary colors were burgundy, peach, pinks, and taupe.
How much would you estimate this wedding would cost for 150 guests in the Tampa Bay area?
