You have got to look at the full gallery…it is bursting at the seams with inspiration.
From Elisa Bricker… This styled shoot is inspired by the grace and soft color of the South. We chose our location for its historic plantation feel. We created color pallet of teal, pale pink, buttercream and accented with copper. In creating this shoot we imagined the couple. The Bride, Birdie Mae, was a pastor’s daughter who wanted a small, intimate wedding. Her fiancé , Hugh, wanted to make sure she got everything little thing her heart desired. His wedding day gift to her was a white Bible, traditionally carried down the aisle as a southern alternative to a wedding day bouquet.
Their menu was also a nod to their southern roots and included Black-eyed pea salad with garlic kale, white bean hummus and spicy peanut sauce, fried green tomatoes, pan fried fish, and sweet potato flan for dessert. Another southern tradition is the groom’s cake and charm pull. Charm City Cakes created a beautiful vintage car for our groom’s cake as well as a delicate wedding cake complete with charms for a charm pull!
