On its own, Savannah, Georgia is pretty much the epitome of perfect marrying. But add to the mix the styling prowess of Morgan Gallo Events, lush florals from Harvey Designs and an entire world of vibrant hues (think pink, yellow and orange) and it becomes the land of, well… everything. It’s one part rustic, one part whimsical and all parts pretty. See it captured beautifully by Nate Henderson right here.
From Nate Henderson Photography… Kara and Brian chose historic Savannah, Georgia for their destination wedding. The ceremony took place in the traditional courtyard of the Ships of the Sea Museum, while their reception was held at the museum’s newly constructed pavilion.
The bride was involved on many details of the wedding, including custom designing and printing the textiles used at the wedding. The florals by Harvey Designs were overflowing with a bright spring look. Southern food served family style was prepared by Chef Nick Mueller. It was all quite awesome!
From The Bride… We wanted to have a beautiful, simple day that really highlights how much we appreciate our friends and family. As much as this day is about celebrating our relationship, we also want it to be a celebration and thanks to our friends and family. My brother married us and one of Brian’s friends played guitar for the ceremony. We really wanted to have the ceremony be an inclusive celebration.

I think every Monday morning deserves a little something cozy, especially when it’s a bit gloomy outside as it is today in our little corner of New England. And this sweet film from Artworks Wedding Cinema? It hits the spot. Set at Vinewood Plantation and packed with all kinds of rustic chic goodness, it warms the soul. Grab your mug o’ coffee and press play m’dears!
From Artworks Wedding Cinema… Josee and Adam’s beautiful Vinewood Plantation wedding had all the amazing details that a rustic chic wedding has to offer. My personal favorite was the bright color of the bridesmaids dresses, which really shined amidst the neutral tones the plantation has to offer. Fortunately, the rain held off for the couple to have their ceremony outside beneath a rustic huppah flowing with soft sheers under a large Georgia oak tree. In lieu of a guestbook, guests were invited to sign their names on a quilt. In trying to keep the impending rain out of the picture, the couple enjoyed a short and sweet ceremony where the rabbi was both sentimental and inserted a bit of humor throughout! Guests then enjoyed a wonderful dinner inside the barn as well as the outdoor horseshoes and a fire pit. Dancing the night away culminated in the couple’s sparkler departure where guests were then asked to take home some yummy peach butter as a reminder of the day. We wish Josee and Adam a wonderfully happy life together!

Wedding gowns are a work of art to me. Intricate and exquisite, they are one of the most important pieces of clothing you’ll ever wear. So when we had the opportunity to take a behind the scenes look at how Chaviano Couture brings their visions to life, we obviously jumped. Captured beautifully by Exquisitrie By Kelly Sauer, this gallery is sure to leave you in awe.

….Have you ever wondered about the process that goes into making the loveliness that comes together for a wedding dress? Chaviano Couture wanted to give you a look at the care she puts into the process of creating custom wedding gowns for its brides, from the simple muslin beginnings to the small details to the stunning wedding day results.
This shoot, titled “Sew In Love” before it ever came into being, was a dream that Annette Thurmon and Carlee Sizemore had to tell the story of a custom wedding dress from behind the scenes. Their vision brought a fantastic creative team together last August to capture their inspiration for their brides. The shoot brought lace and vintage and tulle together with Carlee’s exquisite styling, Amy Osaba’s fantastic florals, and an amazing European vibe at the private residence that hosted the shoot. The shoot carries a bit of whimsy, a bit of fun, a dash of drama, and a whole lot of unparallelled pretty for the bride who is looking for inspiration for her own wedding.
