Can I just say that I am super jealous of you Atlanta lovelies? Super. Jealous. Because this weekend (August 18th to be exact) you get to attend The NotWedding, that crazy cool bridal show alternative that actually lets you attend a fake wedding to see all of your area vendors at work. It’s genius + fun + all kinds of amazing and today we’re getting a little sneak peek with a bridal shower kick-off from Molly McKinley Designs and Love Like Weddings. I’m talking Southern-inspired goodness where classic meets contemporary in the prettiest of ways. So dive into the full gallery of lovely and then make sure you get your tickets for this weekend’s festivities… ASAP.
From Molly McKinley Designs… While brainstorming for the Atlanta NotWedding Styled Shoot, we focused on the importance of relationships and community while planning a wedding. A Bridal Shower was a great opportunity to step away from the perfectly set formal table and refocus on the friends there to celebrate the Bride. In the breakfast nook at Madison Oaks, we placed a beautiful trestle table adorned with dainty appetizers and romantic, flowing florals. It was the perfect place for guests to casually gather, meet one another, and fill their plates with yummy bites from Sun in My Belly. By having guests sit around a coffee table piled with gifts, the setting became intimate and almost real. We all felt like someone should be opening those pretty gifts! The guests rocked in the rocking chairs on the front porch of Madison’s most gorgeous Southern home between shooting. The vendors involved just smiled with sincerity all day because of their love for their craft. This afternoon was so lovely. (Can we do it again?)
