It’s no secret that we love a good, old fashioned Southern wedding. You know the kind that’s laid back, yet still stunning. Casual yet with a hint of elegance…this, my friends is it. Morgan Trinker Photography captured this super sweet couple as they said their I Do’s and danced the night away with their guests under the stars. See it all right here.

From Morgan Trinker Photography… Laura and Bryant got married in the charming small town of Pine Mountain, Georgia. It’s the kind of place where, after we checked into our hotel the day before the wedding, we meandered into a local (and incredibly delicious) restaurant and just so happened to meet the florist for the wedding AND the owner of Sweet Home Plantation, the venue, while we were there. Of course they’re friends with each other, and we got to chat with them for quite awhile. It’s the kind of town where everyone knows everyone, friendly faces are everywhere, and no one ever appears to be in a rush or worried about anything.
That’s what made it the perfect spot for a couple like Laura and Bryant to tie the knot. Two of the most laid-back people you’ll ever meet, they wanted a no-fuss wedding with a fun party atmosphere, while also keeping the look and feel of it elegant and oh-so-Southern. After their Catholic church ceremony, guests headed to the plantation home, where they feasted on BBQ and all the “fixins” and danced well into the evening. One of my favorite parts of the day was when everyone sent Laura and Bryant off with sparklers, and they hopped into a gorgeous vintage Thunderbird to drive off. It was the perfect end to a wedding that simply oozed joy and charm.

From the Bride… Callaway Gardens is located in Pine Mountain, Georgia. The pine forests in the winter are beautiful and brown with touches of dusty green which inspired the color scheme. The forest floor is covered with pinecones, which led me to use them in our details. I wanted to share some of my favorite things with family and friends who would be celebrating with us. Old family wedding pictures, southern heritage baskets, preserves and grape vine wreathes from our farm, pictures of Brandon and I growing up and our life together. For favors, we made homemade preserves from fruit grown on the my family’s farm! They were presented in family antique baskets with framed portraits of my mother and grandmother making preserves. Each batch was unique and made with fruit ripe at that time. My grandmother reproduced old family recipes, while my mother added modern twists such as bourbon and basil.

From 13:13 Photography…Laurel and Blake’s elegant garden wedding held at the breathtaking Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. Getting the chance to shoot in different surroundings and to see things new and for the first time is an opportunity we always jump at. So needless to say we’ve been anxiously awaiting this wedding to get here already!
The weeks leading up to the wedding we were in contact with Laurel’s mother, Hope. Every phone call or email from her was like tearing off a small piece of wrapping paper and getting a sneak peak at their vision for the wedding. Hope is an artist and that creativity and meticulous energy came through in every single beautiful detail.
We could not have asked for a more beautiful day, location, and couple. It was a real treat to be apart of it all and can’t thank them enough for choosing us!
