Southern “Great Gatsby” Style Wedding

What do you get when you bring the glamour of “Great Gatsby” to Orange Beach, Alabama? You get this gorgeous wedding photographed by Christian Oth Studio. With no shortage of great fashion moments and a puppy that’ll make you squeal, there’s more than enough reason to head straight to The Vault.

Beach Resort

What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?

I wanted Great Gatsby meets the South while playing Zydeco. Palmer was born in Natchez Mississippi and I was born in Monroe, Louisiana but raised in Baton Rouge while calling Lafayette home so there’s a lot of culture in that mix!

What was your color palette and your style vision?

I used different shades of blue but really just used the nature and natural surroundings of the water and trees. We have been incredibly lucky to have an amazing florist and caterer that I’ve known since I was 5 that I call family and they knew every vision and made it come alive.

What unique elements or DIY details did you include?

We designed and put together all of ours save the dates with 4 coasters that had the date, our initials, his favorite drink, and my favorite drink as well as Jack Daniels and Maccalen Scotch and stirrers with our initials on them.

What was your favorite moment? Your favorite crafted detail?

I absolutely loved our go away on the boat with fireworks going off the background but if I had to say my most favorite it would have to be the actual ceremony. Everyone told me to keep my pup locked up for the ceremony but as I was leaving my bedroom I decided to let him out and he was the perfect addition while we were saying our vows. He definitely thought the entire wedding was for him.

Tell us about your flowers, your gown, your favors, your cake, etc.

One of my bridesmaids and dearest friends made her famous chocolate fudge and caramel. My sister also had linen bags made with our initials that people put lavender into throw as we left. Our cake was absolutely stunning! My gown was the perfect amount of glam without being too over the top for a beach wedding. The flowers and food were insanely elegant and still made you feel like you weren’t in a home that had been recreated and redone for the event but that you were in a home that was loved and filled with deliciousness and fab floral arrangements. As the night went on we had tambourines that lit up that ended up being a huge hit.

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?

Have a wedding planner! I am a control freak which I never realized until planning a wedding and she made sure that things that went wrong weren’t things I would ever ever ever know about. EVER. Also, enjoy it when it comes because it happens fast.
