For this shoot, we were fortunate to partner with Tucker’s Gap Event Center at 2900 Callis Road in Lebanon. Although the shoot was in and around their equestrian barn on the property, a large event center is currently under construction scheduled for completion this summer. The brand new event center will mirror the rustic charm of the cedar, stone and ironwork style of the barn in this shoot. Tuckers Gap Event Center will be a 5000-square-foot climate-controlled venue, featuring indoor and outdoor spaces, formal gardens, suites for the bride and groom, a separate bar area, and catering kitchen. For booking, contact Event Center Coordinator Nancy Baker: (770) 906-0489.

Kitty Waters, owner of Oh Crumbs Bakery, created a four-tiered wedding cake with custom sugar roses and baby’s breath. The side desserts for the table were elegant sugar cookies decorated with royal icing, strawberry cupcakes, dainty pink raspberry macarons, and lemon cake pops. They all were decorated in white and tones of pink and burgundy, each easy for guests to pick up and nibble upon.
