Rustic Southern Romance Farm Wedding

Picturesque pastures married with rustic details makes me one happy wedding blogger. Especially when said farm feté happens to have the talented MARROW By Glass Jar Photography behind the lens. From the stable side ceremony (with a bird seed exit) to the reception, each moment is the definition of Southern romance and you can see it all here!

From MARROW By Glass Jar PhotographyA romantically rustic southern style wedding in Rome, Georgia. This gorgeous barn/farm wedding was full of great inspirations for future brides looking for a rustic yet elegant vibe day.

Starting out getting ready in the a white marble room inside an old barn style home, followed by a Stable side ceremony with a bird seed exit to the reception.

From the beautiful Bride… My dream was to find a farm location with lots of green spaces and a rustic charm that was also able to accommodate our family and friends for a whole weekend getaway. By chance, we came across this beautiful farm property in Rome, Georgia and instantly fell in love with the photos. As we currently live in NYC, we had to plan from a distance and ended up booking The Farm without ever having visited! We could not have made a better choice – The Farm was everything we could have hoped for and more. From the rolling green pastures, to the huge barn, and the many unique cottages scattered throughout the property, this was the perfect location for us.

Throughout the planning process, our talented friends and family were our biggest source of help and inspiration. A friend of ours who is a graphic designer worked with us to create a custom invitation suite that helped set the tone for the wedding. The invites included a watercolor image of the barn made by another very talented friend/bridesmaid. Greens and whites were our unofficial colors, keeping things simple and natural as the surrounding scenery was beautiful on its own. I let my bridesmaids pick their own white/off-white dresses and they all turned out lovely together. The groomsmen wore matching slacks, grey suspenders, blue gingham bow ties, and fun socks that were given as a gift. My mother made my veil and I pinned an antique blue broach that belonged to my grandmother on my bouquet. A friend hand painted a welcome sign and the wedding program sign.

It was very important to us that the ceremony be deeply personal and unique to us as a couple, so we skipped any traditions or rituals that were not meaningful to us and focused on what we felt mattered most. My youth minister, who has known me and my family for years, married us; we wrote our own vows; and the maid-of-honor sang the Beatles song “In My Life” as I walked down the aisle with my parents. The ceremony was very emotional, everyone cried (and laughed!), and it was definitely my favorite part of the whole day.

For reception décor we kept it simple with single stems in vases and jars and greenery scattered throughout. The same dear friend who painted the watercolor made us a huge map pointing out all of the locations that have been part of our relationship – this was a fun way to tell our guests more about us. Instead of a guest book, we let everyone take Polaroid photos of themselves and write a little message across the bottom. I highly recommend this; the photos are way better than a name in a book and many of them are hilarious! For our food we wanted to represent our respective hometowns (Atlanta and Houston), so we had a huge southern spread with BBQ and a mashed potato bar. One of the highlights was the beer we served. One of the groomsmen is a talented brewer, so he made us three unique wedding brews, each with their own special labels, which were a huge hit. Also at the bar were local Texas and Georgia beers; our signature cocktails, the Manhattan and French 75, were classic nods to our current home. Neither one of us are big wedding cake people, so we opted for a two tiered pound cake (made by a friend), a chocolate groom’s cake, and lots of PIES! The reception was a blast and flew by way too fast. Luckily, many of our friends were staying on the property so there was an unofficial after party that went well into the night!

Oh, and one more thing: bury the bourbon! We buried ours two months before the wedding date, and the whole week leading up to the day the weather was looking terrible. I’m talking thunderstorms and hail kind of bad. But we dug up our bourbon after rehearsing the day before, shared it with the wedding party, and low and behold, on our wedding day we had no rain and the most beautiful diffused light. Yes, it’s a somewhat silly southern superstitious tradition, but it was totally fun and made for some good memories – plus, no rain!

From Brita PhotographyI’m so excited to share Blair and Jonathan’s gorgeous wedding at Little River Farms with you. There was not a detail overlooked for this southern yet very classic and elegant wedding. From rustic, farm tables at the reception to sophisticated, pastel details in the flowers and attire…Blair and Jonathan’s wedding was the epitome of a timeless southern wedding.

When I arrived at Blair’s bridal suite, she had all of her gorgeous, wedding details ready for me to capture. There were so many meaningful pieces and there wasn’t a detail overlooked. From her grandmothers’ broaches to the embroidery on her wedding dress and the most lovely, sentimental jewelry…everything was just beautiful. I felt so honored to be the one capturing these heirlooms and special pieces that Blair and Jonathan will remember for the rest of their lives. Over 200 guests filled up their outdoor dining room at Little River Farms as Mr. and Mrs. Morgan made their grand entrance. Wooden tables, pastel floral arrangements, and rustic, elegant accents decorated every room of their venue. Their friends and family had a great time celebrating and dancing into the night, laughing, singing, and enjoying every moment of Blair and Jonathan’s special day.

North Georgia Engagement Session

Who could be better than a close friend to photograph your engagement session? Sawyer Baird jumped at the chance to capture these adorable friends in their element, and every photo in the full gallery is sure to steal your heart! From casual and cozy moments walking the dogs to a dazzling, dressed-up affair, it’s the kind of shoot we dream about!

From Sawyer BairdMadeline and Zachary are two of the funniest, sweetest and beautiful people I know… let’s be honest here.

When Zachary told us that he was proposing to Madeline on their recent cruise that they went on, and Bert and I would have to make a video saying “Congrats” due to them having no cell service – I sobbed in the happiest of ways. We were beyond thrilled for them. Being a part of this process and being able to photograph such amazing memories for them just melts my heart. It truly is such a gift.

I can not wait to stand with these two next May as they say their vows and start forever.

Romantic + Classic Industrial Southern Wedding

Having been to Savannah more than once, I’m well aware of the magic it possesses. Its sparkle shined a bit brighter for this beautiful spring celebration, captured in all its glory by The Happy Bloom. From the glittering gowns worn by the Bride’s lucky ladies to the dapper doggies, it was an affair not to be missed!

From The Happy Bloom… Just a few weeks ago, we photographed Brittany and Michael’s wedding in Savannah’s incredible Forsyth Park. Of course, no wedding day is complete without a quick trip to Wormsloe for their first look and Bay Street for some classic cobblestone portraits! Brittany and her girls started the morning with mimosas, a little bit of Taylor Swift and a whole lot of laughter. Heather of Beyond Beautiful by Heather worked diligently on the bride’s hair while the bridesmaids made sure to keep the mood light and the jokes plenty. Brittany decided that metallics would rule her wedding, draping her girls in a champagne dress that looked like magic. Add a bit of soft green and wisp of ivory and she had a wedding day with class, style and sparkle. Yes, every Southern girl’s dream.

Brittany and Michael’s love story is so beautifully intertwined that both of their families celebrated this day with joyful tears and beaming smiles. We absolutely loved the moment when Brittany put on her dress and shoes, surrounded by the smiling faces of her adorable bridesmaids. It was such a beautiful moment and we’ve never felt so much love in one room. And the moment that her granddad kissed her cheek after he walked down the aisle?! Ugh, our hearts! With their sweet pups watching with eager eyes and pointed tails, these two people became one underneath the sweet Savannah Spanish moss. Brittany and Michael wanted to give their guests the true Southern experience. And no trip to Savannah is complete without whiskey and a large helping of old fashioned soul food. Before the reception, Michael dug up a bottle of whiskey (that had been in the ground for months!). For those of you who don’t know, this prevents rain on your wedding day. Oh, don’t believe us? There wasn’t a single drop! As their guests entered the reception, they were greeted with a glass of sweet tea (some with a touch of bourbon) and a plate of fried chicken with all of the fixins.

From the Bride…Brendan and I met for the first time at the Passion Conference in Atlanta; one year later we met again at a New Year’s Eve bonfire on a friend’s farm where we actually had a chance to speak. Our best friends on either side were our wingmen, and a month later we were dating! We dated long distance for ten months until he popped the question on Blue Mountain Beach with our family watching from a distance.

When it came to planning the wedding we had a few things set in stone that we both wanted. We knew that a big ceremony was not for us. An elegant and intimate wedding with those that loved us most as witnesses was most important and we also knew we wanted to be married relatively soon. I searched online for wedding venues in Florida and Georgia, BUT nothing stood out to me. After almost a week of back and forth we decided on my hometown of Bainbridge, GA – we would have the ceremony in The Old Library (a family owned building in historic downtown Bainbridge) and our perfect twinkling reception in my Grandmother’s back yard! We hired the most amazing planner Christy McCoy, with Christy McCoy Studios. Christy made my vision come to life, while fully encouraging my crazy ideas! She handled all of the planning, setting up, as well as being our florist.

The wedding was such a God moment. We had the most beautiful natural light coming through the windows; flower petals and candles lined the aisle, and all of our closest family and friends smiling back at us. We wanted our wedding to glorify God; we prayed that everyone present would experience the love of Christ. We asked our friend Bobby Forrester to sing Holy Spirit by Bryan and Katie Torwalt as I walked down the aisle. It was such a special moment for me!

The reception was so magical! I dreamed of a sit down dinner under string lights, and that is exactly what Christy created. We had a typical southern dinner, preserve roasted chicken, buttermilk mashed potatoes, and asparagus. Everything was perfect! One of our favorite and most special moments of the day was sharing our first dance to Take the World by Johnnyswim!
