It was an absolute joy getting to work with Delaney and Mikey for their elegant Forbes Farm wedding on Saint Simons Island. It was one of our first times visiting this new one-of-a-kind wedding venue, and it did not disappoint. 

Forbes Farm

Forbes Farm is the newest wedding venue on Saint Simons Island and is a must-visit. This marshside wedding venue provides a stunning southern backdrop with the perfect Lowcountry atmosphere.

With indoor and outdoor event spaces to choose from, you truly can’t go wrong with this Georgia wedding venue. The outdoor area features immaculate lawns, open-air patios, and classic southern views. While the indoor spaces are truly exquisite. The indoor reception space is an elegant wood frame structure with crisp white walls and exposed wood accents. One of our favorite features in this venue is the breathtaking chandeliers in the ballroom. We can’t wait to bring these ceilings to life with beautiful blooms!

Elegant Fall Wedding Design

For this Forbes Farm wedding, our couple opted for a warm, rich-colored palette with autumn tones. We used lots of burgundy, chocolate, dusty pink, and white blooms in the floral design.

Deep burgundy tones were incorporated throughout the design, from the velvet bridesmaid dresses to the wedding day stationery. Even the groom’s outfit change featured a velvet burgundy jacket.

This autumn-inspired color palette popped in the reception space, where it was paired with white textured linens and natural wood accents.

Delaney and Mikey’s wedding ceremony took place on the Forbes Farm lawn overlooking the marsh. The couple opted for low-lying floral arrangements as the backdrop to their ceremony, which were brought to life with autumn-colored florals.

After the ceremony, guests headed indoors to the reception space for an elegant evening of dinner and dancing. For the guest tables, Emily Burton Designs went with a tasteful neutral design where the floral centerpieces were a focal point and were a warm pop of color. We opted for clean, classic, and crisp ivory tapered candles to not take any attention away from the romantic florals.

No detail was forgotten for Delaney and Mike’s elegant black tie affair on Saint Simons Island. We were so thankful to get to work with one of the newest Saint Simons wedding venues and would love to help bring your Forbes Farm wedding to life! Reach out to see if we are available on your wedding date and to book your consultation call today!
