Every now and then I come across a wedding that is so dreamy, my lovely coworker has to nudge me from my distant gaze. From the seeded eucalyptus bridesmaid bouquet through the last kiss, this wedding from Sweet Souther Charm looks like a scene ripped right out from the Brother’s Grimm. But don’t take my word for it, there’s a whole gallery of whimsy from Brianna Forster Photography to revel in.

… One thing I love about my couples is that I genuinely click with all of them and I hope you do as well! When Jennifer and David first contacted me and described to me their wedding day plans, I was super excited and knew we were meant to be! With Jennifer and David I could just see there was more to just love in their relationship. They have a special story that I had the privilege enough to hear about on their wedding day. Jenn and David had heard about each other through mutual friends but when Jennifer was 14 she was in a car accident and as a result 9 years later found out she had to have brain surgery. Because of this Jenn and David were only able to talk on the phone for two months before finally getting to meet and as Jennifer said “the rest is history.” Falling in love with each other came so naturally for the two of them and everyone can see they are meant for each other without a doubt! Now, I am usually pretty strong about not getting emotional during weddings but every once and a while its a good thing my camera has auto-focus. One of their requests on their wedding day was that I would catch their romantic moments in a beautiful way and help them relax in front of the camera but most of all enjoy they day with them! Well, I can truly say I enjoyed everything about their day from start to finish and I hope you do too.

There is not one single detail of this romantic Southern affair that I’m not completely head over heels for. It is literally packed full of pretty. Sweet Southern Charm brought vintage gorgeousness to the table, Minted set the tone with a bit of sparkle and Libby’s Flowers added a softness to the day with stunning blooms. I could talk it up all afternoon but I’m sure you’d rather swoon over this goodness from Hunter Ryan Photo.

From the beautiful Bride… For our wedding I had envisioned a soft and romantic southern wedding with a blush, mint and navy palette that was equally as beautiful as it was comfortable for all our guests. I was very drawn to vintage and garden wedding styles and when we found are venue; an old historic home directly located on the water with a sprawling lawn, everything just came together.
I was really fond of our menu that was centered around comfort foods. During the cocktail hour the guests were served macaroni and cheese with crab martinis, shrimp and grits in old champagne glasses, southern pot roast for dinner and of course our dessert bar featuring mini pies and cookies and milk.
In regards to other special details of the day, the presenting of a necklace and a family vow to my daughter, Isabella, our flower girl, signifying the important date of us becoming a family was very touching and special.
Apart from saying “I Do” being our favorite part of the day, we thoroughly enjoyed having so many of our family and friends together to celebrate and to watch and enjoy everyone’s joy and excitement of all the details and little touches that had been planned. Everything we had hoped for that evening had far surpassed any of our expectations and that is largely in part to our wonderful vendor team and our wedding planner moving everything along without a hitch.
