Classic Wedding at Home

Well, Spring has officially sprung, if the Azaleas outside my window have any say in it, and you know what that means… wedding season is just around the corner! I’m so looking forward to more quintessential summer weddings just like this one from Clark + Walker because, quite frankly, they’re what makes my Monday mornings that much better.

From Clark + Walker… Jamie+DJ had an incredible wedding on their private estate, where Jamie grew up. The wedding was all hand picked, and incredibly done.

Classic Southern Wedding at Home

Put on your designer shoes — you’re about to be an honorary guest at one of the most beautiful (and of course, charming) Southern Weddings you’ve ever seen, courtesy of Liz Banfield and Tara Guérard. Everything an at home wedding should be…  contained in a gallery to keep you enthralled and looking for more! Sweet love, of course, is at the center — to the absolute core.  ps …  the cake from Jim Smeal is one to die for! Our thanks to Tara & Liz for sharing!

From Tara Guérard Soirée… Few things are more classic and southern than a wedding in the garden. The bride’s parent’s turn of the century Georgian home and it’s surrounding gardens provided the perfect backdrop for the hometown nuptials. The Augusta Symphony Orchestra played Bach and Handel as the five hundred guests took their seats at the ceremony. The family’s silver service was used to present hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour. Servers passed trays of azaleas as a nod to nearby Augusta National Golf Course where the drink is a crowd favorite. Guests dined on Carolina quail, shrimp and grits, beef tenderloin, crab cakes, grilled lamp chops and pan seared scallops. I sought to enhance the garden’s natural beauty using design elements that would traditionally be found in that setting – wrought iron furniture, market umbrellas and black and white awning stripe fabric. Shepherd’s hooks with hanging candles led guests from the cocktail hour to the dance tent and lounge area hidden under a giant live oak. The color palette was based on the blueish-purple hues found in their blooming hydrangeas. In southern fashion, the groomsmen wore white dinner jackets. A six-tier wedding cake, featuring over seventy handmade sugar flowers, was placed in the garden folly at the far end of the property. Bistro lighting kept the main bar lit from above well into the evening. Hot pretzels, the groom’s favorite, and fresh donuts were served late night.

Beautiful High Star Ranch Wedding

I’m at a loss for words. This wedding, from Kate Osbourne Photography, is so beautiful I might just cry. With Honey of a Thousand Flowers behind the day, I knew I was in for it, but I couldn’t even begin to imagine just how perfect the wedding would be. But when I saw it, I was seriously floored.


From Kate Osbourne Photography… Molly & Dan had a casual beautiful wedding at High Star Ranch in Kamas Ut. The wedding was a perfect combination of rustic and romantic. The couple are outdoor enthusiast and waned to have the outdoors be the backdrop for their special day. The ceremony was under on old willow tree and the wedding’s soft pallet were a perfect combo with the late summer event. Guests enjoyed a beautiful dinner followed by dancing in a old hay barn.
