Twilight in the Heart of Southern Oaks

We found this incredible LOCAL venue, just mildly out east in Sarasota, thanks to the direction of my friend Marisa Merlino and in turn, the welcoming Brittany Eagans. It’s called Southern Oaks and it shines in subtle waves of luscious greens and deep earth tones. The oak trees outstretch their limbs across the short cut grass like mothers’ arms over babies. I was so lucky to find this incredible company called So Staged Event Rentals who may be the sweetest vendor I have worked with to date. They brought in these stunning iron hanging chairs that fit like a glove into the bridal scene we were creating. It rained for an hour into the assigned start time of the shoot and we lost that light time. But somehow it was meant to be because what we created demanded the twilight and darkness.
