Lighting can really help to set the mood. Dim lighting means romance. Edison bulbs are all the rage right now and here at The Space at Feather Oaks we couldn’t agree more that this idea is a must have. The exposed bulbs bring in an instant mood and are perfect for creating an intimate feel at a wedding. Whether your reception is outside under the trees or in a beautiful barn, Edison bulbs bring an added vintage, classic romance to the celebration. You could hang just one bulb over each table or the whole ceiling. No matter how you choose to arrange them, Edison bulbs are a beautiful, cost effective way to help set the mood for celebrating!

Baby’s breath can be absolutely breathtaking (pun intended) when used in a barn wedding to give a rustic feel. Here at The Space at Feather Oaks we love these ideas for weddings at our barn!
- Boutonniere: a dried bundle of baby’s breath tied with some burlap.
- Baby’s breath globes: you can hang them from the ceiling or drape them over chairs
- A classic wreath
- Rustic log centerpiece hollowed out and filled with baby’s breath
- Cupcake toppers
Whether it’s Summer here in North Florida or Winter, baby’s breath can be used anytime of the year to make your wedding spectacular!

Vintage Milk Bottles
Vintage milk bottles just sort of scream farm! They add that personalized touch to just about any function. For a wedding they are great to collect to use for flowers as centerpieces and even use as a fun way to serve water or non-alcoholic beverages on each table. You could get them monogrammed with both of your names and the date for everyone to take home. Vintage milk bottles would also be great to give as gifts filled with homemade beer if you brew your own! OR if you want to keep them after your wedding you can display them in your own kitchen and continue to use them for fresh flowers and fun drinks during parties! What awesome reminders of your big day! Vintage milk bottles could also be used for parties for kids filled with all kinds of milk or juice to serve. The great thing about them is they can really be used for any function. These would work great at any celebration at The Space at Feather Oaks!

Flowers = romance plain and simple! We give flowers as gifts, as tokens of affection, as reminders of our feelings. In light of all that, what could be more romantic than getting married under a ceiling draped in beautiful fragrant flowers?! We couldn’t imagine anything more perfect for a barn wedding. The idea is one that can be tailored to fit your wedding. The flowers could be in your color scheme. We have so many beautiful flowers in the North Florida area. They could even be the favorite flowers of a loved one who has passed on and whose memory you want to honor on your big day. Or you could decide to drape the room in your favorite flowers because it’s your wedding and why not?!! There is no right or wrong as long as it’s authentic to you as a couple! It is perfectly rustic and would be a great touch on the farm for one of our many brides at The Space at Feather Oaks.

Incorporating Fall Elements Into Autumn Weddings
Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year. We cannot get enough of fall weddings here at The Space at Feather Oaks! Orange and yellow leaves fill the trees just as they are about to hit the ground for winter. It only makes sense for autumn weddings to be just as beautiful as the nature surrounding us in Tallahassee, Florida. For those autumn lovers out there here are some ways to incorporate this theme throughout your magical day in the barn at our farm.
Food: there are many options for great fall appetizers thanks to the wonderful markets still in full swing with amazing seasonal veggies. Gazpacho in chilled shot glasses with red and yellow tomatoes is vibrant with fall colors add in zucchini strips for the final touch. Another great appetizer is the ever-faithful stuffed potato topped with sour cream and chives. Potato soup is always a fan favorite too. Lettuce wraps with meat mangos and salsa can help bring out those great colors as well.
Cocktails: Behold the perfect fall cocktail; Apple cider, bourbon, Ginger Ale in a mason jar, garnished with a thin apple slice. Cheers!
Table Settings: Take a mini pinecone cut it in half and you have a name cardholder. Take any large vase fill it with pinecones and small pumpkins and tie a strip of burlap for an easy fall-filled centerpiece. Go a step beyond that and put it on top of a thin stump of a tree surrounded by candles. B-E-A-UTIFUL.

Down on the Farm - Kids Barnyard Bash!
Kids love all things farm. We can only chalk it up to all the nursery rhymes like Mary had a Little Lamb, and Old McDonald. But really can we blame them? Bonfires? Hay rides? Horses? Count us in! There is so much that can be done for kid parties on a farm and it is amazing to see how creative people can get. How great is that farm themed bowling shown above! Or the food ideas; how clever is that? There are even cupcakes designed to look like farm animals. Here at The Space at Feather Oaks we are all about local fresh produce; how cool would it be to have a fun farmers market set up at a kid party with yummy, healthy snacks? Its no secret that we love mason jars as much as the next person, one great idea is to have mason jars filled with strawberry, chocolate, and regular milk ceiled and but into an tin crate filled with ice. Nothing says down home good eating like chicken pot pie, caramel apples, and smores on a stick. Y-U-M. The ideas are limitless, you get to thinking and we’ll provide you with The Space you need!

Mama's Blue Dress Concert on the Farm
The owners of The Space at Feather Oaks always envisioned having outdoor concerts under the giant Pecan tree on the farm. "We knew it would be the perfect place to throw your picnic blanket down with great friends and yummy food and listen to some foot tapping tunes". Scott and Katrice just had to find the perfect band and the perfect available date in between the barn wedding activities and the private parties! Ironically, this year at the 30A Songwriters Festival they ran across the perfect band and even more ironically the weekend the band could come to Tallahassee was the one best weekend in the busy Spring wedding schedule for The Space at Feather Oaks !! It was a match made in heaven. The upcoming super star band, Mama's Blue Dress was booked and plans made for a wonderful evening under the stars and under the tree for 200 + friends to share food, fun and fellowship all while they listened, danced and hoot and hollered to the best new band coming out of Nashville, TN.

Sweet Southhern Wedding in Tallahassee
The Space knew this wedding was going to be one we remembered when we saw the wedding party dance their way down the aisle to an upbeat, modern love song. Even the bride, in her adorable cowboy boots and beautiful white gown, danced her way to her new groom, with her mother dancing right beside her.
Kristin and Simon were the epitome of the perfect, young, gorgeous couple who looked so madly in love and truly happy to be getting married. The North Florida fall weather was perfect for their special day as the guests celebrated all night long. Bright, neon lights lit the dance floor with the blazing bon fire roaring in the background.
Kristin and Simon, now Mr. and Mrs. Collins, were wonderful to work with and The Space wishes them nothing but happiness in their new life together!

Tricia DeSalvo was a vision in white as she walked down the aisle in the crisp, autumn air to a beautiful Celine Dion song. Her groom looked at her with a tear in his eye and you could just tell they were meant to be.
Their wedding was a mix of beautiful fall colors with the added decoration of paper lanterns displayed throughout The Space at Feather Oaks, all lit with different color lights. The delicious aroma of the white-iced, chocolate/vanilla swirl wedding cake filled the halls of the barn, while fall-scented candles allowed for soft, intimate lighting.
The modern country chic-ness offered by The Space at Feather Oaks was the perfect setting for this fall, Saturday night wedding in Tallahassee. Not only was there a photo booth set up near the bar, which made for some funny pictures the couple will always remember, but private violinists played beautiful renditions of the couple’s song.
This night was one they will always remember and we thank the wonderful newlyweds for choosing our amazing venue to share in their special night!

Giving back to the community: The Space at Feather Oaks donates their venue to Holy Comforter Episcopal School
The Space at Feather Oaks recently donated their venue in a silent auction to help raise money for Holy Comforter Episcopal School at the Holy Comforter Annual Gala. The highest bidder was to receive a scheduled dinner party and a night full of southern comfort and rustic charm underneath the unique venue that is The Space, along with 50 of their closest friends. Turns out, one of Holy Comforter’s own parents’ was the highest bidder!
The dinner party was gorgeously set up with mason jar candles, cowboy boot centerpieces and the intimate setting of eating and drinking under the Tallahassee night sky with friends and co-workers. The vast, farm background allowed guests to mingle and walk around as they pleased while admiring the many horses The Space houses.

Lots of wedding celebrations and now we are in full swing with holiday parties which we love but we had to take a minute to do a little shout out to one of our recent sweet couples that was married on a beatutiful fall day in November here in Tallahassee at The Space at Feather Oaks.
