Elegant + Eclectic Farm Wedding Inspiration

If you are in the throws of planning a gorgeous Southern affair, then this shoot photographed by Jess Hunter with design and styling by Martha McIntosh is so up your alley. It pairs eclectic pieces with gorgeous blooms and a beautiful charm that Southern weddings seem to have in abundance. And even if you’re wedding doesn’t have Southern roots, you’re sure to find a little something to love here.

I currently live in Washington state, but grew up in Georgia. This time during my visit home I knew I wanted to put together some inspiration for a Southern wedding-something that would resonate with Southern brides yet have a little different feel to it. This is how this shoot was born. I wanted it to have gorgeous, yet unique florals, along with eclectic elements that you wouldn’t see all the time in the South, while also allowing some traditional Southern elements to shine through. At the same time, I wanted it to be outdoors to have an organic and rustic feel, and the gorgeous farm venue definitely lent those two things which paired great with the elegant and eclectic elements. Southern Vintage helped tremendously with finding the perfect pieces for the shoot-down to a very specific array of tableware-each place setting was different along with the glasses, and chairs. Everything was mismatched-but in a complimentary way to provide visual interest and to keep the eclectic feel. Also, Martha Macintosh decorated one of Southern Vintage’s wagon wheels with greenery which makes a great ceremony or even reception decor piece. The ceremony seating was to die for-a perfect timeless, eclectic blend of old wooden chairs and stately upholstered pieces provides a refreshing option from the same old ceremony seating.

1920s Winter Glam Inspiration Shoot from Haley Sheffield + Southern Vintage

Combining the uber-gorgeous fashions of the 1920’s with just a dash of modern stylings is never a bad idea, particularly when it comes in the form of a beautiful inspiration shoot like this darling sesh captured by Haley Sheffield.  I’m talking stunning gowns from The Sentimentalist, glamorous jewelry from Vintage Green and a whole lot of vintage goodness courtesy of Southern Vintage, here to rock your Wednesday in all sorts of ways.  Care to take a gander?  Join me in the gallery for sooo much more.


Melissa Welch, stylist for the shoot, found inspiration in the pieces of Vintage Green Jewelry–a company by Edith Anne Hunt that collaborates vintage gems (literally) with contemporary elements to make extraordinary, unique pieces. After thrifting two 20’s-inspired evening gowns, Melissa coordinated with Southern Vintage (a vintage rental company based in Macon, GA) and several other vendors to create a shoot that would inspire the modern bride, while incorporating the glam and elegance of the 1920’s that we all love.

For the day-look, we used a light blue beaded chiffon gown, paired with a stunning Twigs & Honey headpiece from The Sentimentalist (a bridal boutique in Atlanta), as well as a few vintage-mod pieces from Vintage Green. We decided to go with a down-do for the bride, styled by Nichole Mitchell of Signature Salon. Jennifer Horton decided to use a soft, peachy color palette for the bride’s makeup, supplementing the softness with the classic cat-eye liner. For an extra touch of modern, she also painted the bride’s nails black to bring a “punch” into the light colors of this look.

For the evening look, we used a black beaded halter-neck gown, paired with a vintage fur coat, a dramatic necklace from Vintage Green, and another headpiece from The Sentimentalist. We just love the way each of the elements catches the candlelight. For this look, hair stylist Nichole Mitchell structured a stunning modern take on the classic up-do, featuring interwoven pin curls. The makeup for this look played on the drama of the gown, with sultry eyeliner and a dark burgundy lip.

We hope that these looks inspire brides who love the elegance of the 1920s, but want to incorporate them in a more modern way. We recommend choosing daring colors, vintage-mod jewelry pieces, and even small touches like dark lips and nails. In addition, we love the idea of using unique and bold statement pieces in the wedding decor–like the vintage red chaise lounge used in this shoot.
