Secret Garden-Inspired Alabama Wedding

You may think you’ve seen a “secret garden” wedding done before, but I can assure you that you’ve never a day quite as charming as this. Think ‘maids dressed in lavender, mixed blooms a’plenty and a pint-sized bridal party all sweet in a row. Simply Bloom Photography came along for the fun, and the gallery is every garden bride’s dream come to life.

From Simply Bloom PhotographyThe bride described envisioning a “secret garden” theme for her wedding day. She also outlined that her style is very eclectic and that her dress as well as the bridesmaids’ are flowing and ethereal.

Paige and Jesse were a dream couple to photograph and their wedding embodied just that. Every detail felt like an organic and artistic choice. It was apparent that they fully trusted all their vendors, because the final result was a masterpiece from each contributor.

One of our favorite moments to capture was when the bride saw her father for the first time on the day. It was everything Paige promised it would be: heartfelt, warm, emotional and plain moving, even for us behind the lens.

From MARROW By Glass Jar Photography… MARROW is a new digital film division of Glass Jar Photography.  This wedding is both a great example of our work with the new division, as well as a great source of ideas for brides looking for some cool floral design, and creative reception styling.

A gorgeous sunny day in the south, covered in flowers and color, Rachel and Nate tied the knot.  Starting with getting ready in an old house across the street from the Gothic style church where the ceremony took place to the antique car get-a-way to the reception on Nate’s family property out in the country.

We ended the night in a perfectly dreamy lit tent in an open field, releasing paper lanterns in the air. It was truly a southern charmer of a wedding.

Silver + Gold New Year’s Eve Wedding

How is it already February? I’m finally getting my mind wrapped around resolutions and fresh starts and now I have to add valentines and sweet treats to the list. But not before we have one last hoorah with all the glory of a New Year’s Eve wedding, complete with festive balloons and confetti. Marrow By Glass Jar Photography captured the countdown and I’ll be reliving all of this fun until next year.

From The Bride…Krzysztof and I met a few years ago and fell in love instantly. He took me to Poland to meet his parents two months after our meeting and from then on we just knew. It was funny because we actually went to the same high school at the same time but did not know each other then. It must have been fate. We got engaged on Christmas Eve when he got down on one knee in our little house’s foyer. While I was going to school for another degree I planned the wedding myself (my Korean background and analness would not allow for any delegation). Luckily we had a 1 1/2 year engagement.

Every since I was a little girl I loved the color pink (blush pink in particular) and I love the color with gold. This was basically my inspiration. I am an avid lover of thrift store shopping and bargain hunting. Pretty much everything for the wedding was found in a local thrift store. Vintage couches, anything brass or gold, and anything Victorian. I was going for a “Marie Antoinette in Alabama”.

We found the venue together and it was not like the usual Southern barns you see in weddings down South. It was fairly new and was set upon 23 acres of beautiful landscape. The ceremony took place at St. Mary’s of the Visitation Catholic Church where Krzysztof and I were member’s of. We had a full mass and included 7 groomsmen and 7 bridesmaids. The church was beautiful on it’s own so decor was unnecessary. Finery’s Traci Rush and I got together and I was able to explain to her my vision for the reception and she was able to set everything up according to my plan. We had a cigar bar out under the “hay barn” where there were two gorgeous vintage sitting areas and an electric violinist playing during cocktail hour. The DJ played much techno since that was our favorite genre of music. And our Polish and Korean families danced together.

The incredible cake that I sketched up was put together by Slice at a Time and was a showstopper….she made it look exactly like I envisioned. An almost 3′ tall fondant, almond cake surrounded by ruffles and gold touches. And of course what “french princess” wouldn’t have a delicious macaron tower to go along with it? We also included a tea and coffee station for after our plated dinner (on vintage mismatched china) that included a full course of Polish cuisine, we loved being able to see all of our family and bridal party at the head of a 48 foot long head table centered in the barn. Our lengthy reception of 6 hours ended with us walking between our wonderful friends and family lighting sparklers. The videographer, I Do Flix did a remarkable job capturing what all we missed and our lovely and talented photographer, Vania Morris from Simply Bloom Photography took some amazing shots. We could not have asked for a better wedding. I finally married my Polish Prince and lived happily ever after.

From Glass Jar Photography… Amanda is Persian, but grew up in Alabama, met Ben (from Cullman, AL) then they moved to Chicago, now LA…So, they wanted to throw a wedding party that mixed her heritage with his, and their shared southern roots into a beautiful and fun wedding on the mountain.

The colors were a mix of purple, red and black, and at the reception they had belly dancer’s, fire breathers and all kinda of cutely named southern drinks, etc…they even had a cereal bar for later in the night!
