Today we are setting the stage with Allenbrook Farms Wedding Details from J+Z’s wedding. I had never been to Allenbrook Farms before, but their website got me excited and inspired.
One Detail to Rule Them All (and no, it’s not the rings, lol)
One of my very favorite details, not just from this wedding but from any wedding. Jenny started a journal when she and Zac started dating about the relationship. Ummm, I know, right?! I thought it would be a perfect detail with which to photograph the wedding rings. I didn’t read it, obviously, but when I opened to a random page this was the entry: You’re my steady ship and my safe place. (okay… I’m actually getting a little choked up at this) I think this is so special.
I wanted to find a cool place to hang the dress that brought in elements from the wedding vibes. Upscale and rustic was what I was searching for and I found it – it just so happened that the color of the walls went well with the color palette of the bridesmaids’ dresses.
Allenbrook Farms Wedding Details are different from other barn-like reception venues. The amenities and overall style of this organic farm and luxury wedding venue in Franklin TN were lovely! I also am a big fan of gray (actually, gray is my favorite color!) so it goes without saying that this striking wedding venue was a joy to photograph.
To illustrate my last point, look at these luxury wedding details at Allenbrook Farms: this chandelier is beautiful, and I always swoon over long tables. They look great and are fun to photograph.
Here’s a shot from below as well. If you love symmetry, this wedding venue is perfect for you.
Again, the long wedding tables are so fun to shoot. They use two of my favorite composition tools: leading lines and the rule of thirds (which I wrote about in my photography how-to book).
Is It Cake? Yes, lots and lots of cake.
And now, let’s take a moment for this cake. Gorgeous gold leaf accents pop on the minimal color palette that matches the wedding colors. Divine.
But when it comes to cake, these two were the conversation pieces of the wedding reception. I’ve been to many OU football games with the Sowers family and they take college football seriously. It’s apparent that Zac’s side does as well. And y’all, it’s not an optical illusion or forced perspective: the OU cake is juuuuuusssst slightly bigger than the Ole Miss cake. Boomer!

Jenny and Zac’s Allenbrook Farms Wedding Details were both beautiful and thoughtful. Everything had a purpose and a sentiment. I love that.
