In the midst of an absolute wonderland forest of trees sits the Carolina Grove. This modern venue is a showstopper, due in large part to how they have maximized the breathtaking beauty of nature all around them! The folks who designed this venue were absolute geniuses, as natural light seems to stream in everywhere. This meant there was no shortage of beautiful places to photograph our cake. In fact, we had trouble picking just one spot! (We ended up using the patio, the large door backdrop, and the back wall of the venue.)
This photoshoot just felt like springtime to me and reminded me of a picnic on a warm, breezy spring day. The use of bright colors and the wicker basket details made it feel even more whimsical and fairytale-esque. Using baskets instead of vases or urns added a layer of casualness to this shoot that we absolutely loved.
Our cake was another one of the unique oval shapes that we are starting to fall in love with! While ovals still have a very natural shape, they provide a modern upgrade to the classic round cake, making this cake a great fit for the modern yet natural venue.
