Chic Kentucky Derby Wedding Inspiration in Stillwater

by Brynlee Handy

The rich history behind southern prep style always has a hold on us, but this Kentucky Derby wedding inspiration manages to take that love a step further! Styled, planned, and designed by the ever-creative Harper Mae Events, this shoot was captured on camera by Carsyn Craytor Photography in light and airy scenes around one of Stillwater’s newest wedding venues The Range Wedding + Event Venue. This setting blends modernity and chic, sleek accents with a rustic barn setting making it the ideal spot for hosting a styled wedding editorial characterized by clean lines and classic patterns and prints such as this. Our bride models an eye-catching jockey style ensemble, but her off-the-shoulder gown from Chantilly Bridal Studio was arguably the star of this show, flaunting a flattering cowl neckline and complete with darling button detailing down the back. Her look complements each aspect of this derby wedding inspiration down to the gorgeous gingham tablescape and equestrian-centric acrylic stir sticks from Wooden Hearts Boutique!

 

Vintage rentals hold loads of character and these from Marianne’s Rentals make the perfect cocktail hour lounge setup for your guests to sit and sip, taking in your entire wedding and all its stunning details. When it’s time for sweets, those who enjoy cake can have a slice of this cheery white wedding cake designed by Sweet Devotion Cakery or snag a miniature pie baked by them as well. There are so many pretty, preppy elements to behold throughout this Kentucky Derby wedding inspiration, so naturally, Courtney Kibby Designs was on the scene to capture it all with her experiential live wedding services and delicate watercolor details of the day in its entirety. From a stately invitation suite and calligraphy by The Letter Box to hand-lettered dessert tags, to dinner menus that flawlessly complement the reception scene, bespoke wedding elements make up a small part of this styled shoot but certainly the most impact on its design. See all the best shots down below. Cheers!
