From Sweet Tea PhotographyWhen I found out I was going to be in Savannah, GA at the end of August for my close friend’s wedding,  I wanted to take advantage of my time there and plan a styled shoot!  Luckily my friends have a new southern art & style magazine, called Paprika Southern, which is based in Savannah, GA.  I was so thrilled to find out that they were interested in collaborating on the shoot! These talented friends of mine, Siobhan and Bevin, both went to Savannah College of Art & Design with me and I can’t tell you how much fun we had working together.

That was a busy week for all of us, especially Bevin. We did the shoot on Wednesday and that Saturday was Bevin’s wedding day! We chose September Oaks as the location for both and it proved to be an excellent decision. We managed to have excellent weather throughout both days and we didn’t even get tired of being in the same place for two days. September Oaks is special in the way that it has so many spots that you can choose to host your ceremony or reception at. It’s a family-owned winery located in the historic Low Country of South Carolina, just outside of Savannah, Georgia. They just recently opened their doors to weddings and special events.

As a whole we were hoping to appeal to more of a bohemian rather than preppy bride. We chose a gorgeous Lena Medoyeff gown from a playful new bridal boutique in Savannah, called Ivory and Beau. The owners are young and excited about showing off their hand-selected gowns. 

We pulled Candice Hilse and Grace Jennings of Yoj Events on for the styling. They came up with the jewel toned color scheme, which really catches the eye in the florals, linens, accessories, and dishware Grace chose.

Grace said “I tried to focus on rich jewel tones and dark fruits which both remind me of Autumn.  I love all things vintage, especially juxtaposed with the golden flatware. The lace pattern in the bridal gown emulates leaves on a vine, and I wanted the groom to be rustic yet polished. The linens used on the exposed wood table with folded napkins were Aubergine, the full purple table with green bench was Plum, and the two-top Adirondack setup under the tree was Lime Green.”

So when this team of vendors, including Design Studio South + Kato Floral Designs, decided to showcase the beauty of a modern, Floridian inspired brunch, you bet Lily Pulitzer, flamingoes and mimosas were involved. Click through the slideshow for all the fun details captured by Rach Lea Photography.

Sparkly New Year’s Eve Wedding Inspiration

I’m a big fan of New Year’s Eve, from the sequins to the champagne. It is the perfect party setup. Add in some adorable newlyweds and it’s only gets better. This photo shoot by Marianne Lucille, designed by JLeslie Wedding Decor and styled by Emily Fogarty, put me in the perfect mood to await the ball’s drop tonight and these pics of sparkly cocktails and cupcakes is where I’ll be as we say adios to 2014.

From Jenna Coleman of JLeslie Wedding Décor… When starting a new business in your hometown, it’s always comforting and exciting to work with people you know. For this shoot, we were able to work with a location vendor that Marianne and I both went to high school with. I had worked with Savannah Special Events by Ranco on a previous styled shoot and used them as a vendor at my own wedding so we were able to contact them and involve them in this project as well. Smallcakes Cupcakery provided our cupcakes for the shoot. This bakery just opened in a local area of town and I thought it would be a great idea to help get their name out there! We wanted a classic design style with a hint of glam and sparkle, after all this is a New Years wedding! I made the invitations and paper products for this shoot but was also able to incorporate some DIY elements that make the theme pop! I wrapped the confetti poppers in coordinating black and white scrapbook paper. We glammed up some champagne glasses by dipping the rim in chocolate and adding some sprinkles and pop rocks! I think creating a theme for any wedding or event is a great way to make a memorable impact while staying within your budget; this shoot is a great example!

From Marianne of Marianne Lucille Photography… I really wanted to capture the class of this event. The black, white and gold color palette bring a great layer of sophistication. These colors were the sounding board for the design of this New Years Eve shoot. Jenna Coleman of JLeslie Wedding Decor and I worked on the design elements for the shoot and knew we wanted to add a bit of sparkle to the decor. This little bit of glitter brought a touch of fun and whimsy to it all.

The dress is from Ivory and Beau and definitely a stunner. I love to see brides reach out of the box for their wedding dress color and choose something that isn’t white or a shade of white. The sequins on this dress brought in some bling and made for another fun element to the shoot. All the glitter and glam made this shoot fun to put together and photograph!

Sparkly New Year’s Eve Party

It’s almost time to say our goodbyes to 2014; out with the old, in with the new! And as we prep for the beginning of the new year, there’s no better way than with gold sparkles and mini champagne bottles. Gray Harper Event Maker created the perfect scene to ring in 2015, and with all of Izzy Hudgins‘ shimmering snaps, I’m gathering all of my ideas from this gallery to toast to the new year in style.

From Izzy Hudgins Photography… What’s a New Year’s Eve party without a little sparkle?! Gray Harper Event Maker shows how to throw a playful porch party with lots of holiday glitz. Spring for sequin tablecloths but forage in your natural surroundings for decor – here, we spray painted magnolia blooms gold. Create fun personalized gifts for your guests that double as escort cards by labeling champagne bottles with their names. Using playful patterns like stripes and polka dots keeps your decor modern yet whimsical. And be sure to have a well stocked bar and yummy hors d’oeuvres to keep the party going – we love colorful macarons and fresh asiago popcorn!

Romantic Georgian Wedding Inspiration

There is nothing I love more than a fresh and beautiful DIY and this wedding shoot from French Knot Studios and Izzy Hudgens Photography has done not only that (the embroidery hoop centerpiece is to die for) but continued the fab in a shoot inspired by the beauty of Georgia. And it is perfect.

From French Knot StudiosGeorgia is known for peaches, but it’s also known for cotton, peanuts, and honey. With these products as our inspiration, we created some romantic ideas. Ruffled flowers, hues of burgundy and peach, and a sweet tea bar are just a few of the lovely elements. A hanging centerpiece of embroidery hoops with handmade paper and lush florals doubles as a fun prop for portraits. Honeycomb hexagons line the aisle, and make perfect garnish skewers for the iced tea. You can also include the hexagon with the wedding invite for guests to send back with well wishes written in. Then line the aisle with all the sweet thoughts from your loved ones. Gold gilded packages with long satin ribbons decorate a pile of presents. A decadent vanilla wedding cake covered in whipped peanut butter icing and topped with fresh, local honeycomb is the perfect way to end the evening. With a beautiful view of Savannah’s historic skyline, the Westin’s gazebo and crisp lawn is a delightful venue for weddings.
