Red + Greenery-Filled Southern Wedding

Believe it or not, Christmas is just days away (!!!) and this celebration is giving us holiday spirit like no other. Deep shades of red paired with lush greens and succulents set the tone for a Southern wedding like you’ve never seen, and A. Thomas Photography was on hand capture every moment. Inspiration awaits this way in the gallery.


From the Bride… I had so many parts of the day that I loved, but a few favorites included putting my dress on and showing it to family and the girls for the first time, walking down the aisle to see Colin for the first time, and how incredible I felt during my bridal portraits. It was the best day! For me, so much of my style inspiration was centered around the venue. I wanted the design to be elegant but to also have a rustic & whimsical feel. My bouquet was incredible and incorporated my love of succulents in a way that still tied into the fall season. I wanted it to feel casual and for people to feel comfortable, while still having jaw dropping details. Lots of greenery in the reception added to the whimsical feel, as well as the trailing ribbons in our bouquets.

Inspiration for the Fashion-Forward Bride

If you’ve never considered wearing a cape on your wedding day, this photo shoot is all the inspiration you’ll ever need. Photographed by Almond Leaf Studios and designed and planned in the hands of Emily Claire Events, it’s a fashion heavy, floral loving slice of pretty guaranteed to find a place on your Pinterest boards. Find even more to love inside The Vault.

From Emily, the planner and designer… We knew that we wanted our inspiration to be the chic Atlanta bride, so we included a mix of classic yet slightly modern details. Fashion is front and center here with the bride wearing a gorgeous Caroline Hayden gown, Oscar de la Renta earrings, and Christian Louboutin heels. We loved how structural the gown was and how the cape gently flowed across the staircase at the venue. If that cape doesn’t make you feel like a queen on your wedding day, then we don’t know what will! 

Ivory satin linens, ghost chairs, and silver details set the stage for the fabulous tones in the flowers to shine through. Peonies, carnations, roses, and ranunculus play together beautifully as they cascade across the table. Every brides favorite shade of blush, peach, and ivory can be seen making an appearance!
