Elegant Augusta Wedding

Happy Friday darling SMPers! Before you head off into the beautiful weekend ahead, we’ve got a pretty little seafoam and blush number from Brita Photography that will have your heart a-racing. Layered with flowy bridesmaids dresses, the cutest bubbly favors bow-tied with polka dot straws and blooming perfection, I’ll bet my bottom dollar that this gallery will have you grinning ear to ear.

From Brita PhotographyWe are thrilled to share this elegant and sweet wedding in Augusta with you. It’s not just because Cheney and Adam’s wedding was stunning, but also because they are 2 of the sweetest and kindest people you’ll ever meet! When we first photographed Cheney and Adam during their engagement session in South Carolina, I knew we’d become friends! We hung out afterwards, enjoyed a few drinks, and chatted for a while! I even learned what chow chow sauce was…thanks to Adam! And when we arrived to start shooting on their wedding day, it truly felt like we were hanging out with our friends. It was so fun! All of the girls were in the beautiful Penthouse suite of the Partridge Inn. When I arrived, they were were wearing the cutest shortie set by Plum Pretty Sugar. We scheduled Cheney and Adam’s first look to be at the Old Medical College and it was perfect: The weather, the location, and the love between Adam and Cheney. After saying “I do,” they danced and celebrated all night long at the Old Medical College. And, their getaway car was a golf cart! It was such a great time!

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.

Augusta, Georgia Wedding from Ashley Seawell Photography

I’m a girl who loves tradition. It warms my heart, and is one of the many reasons classic weddings like this beauty captured by Ashley Seawell Photography make me weak in the knees. It’s timeless perfection – with the Bride’s gorgeous lace veil and elegant bridal style – and it perfectly proves why a classic soiree will always hold a big spot in my wedding-loving heart. See it all here.

From Ashley Seawell… Rebekah and John invited their guests to celebrate in the bride’s hometown of Augusta.  Their meaningful ceremony took place in her home church and a lovely reception followed at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art (the bride was actually their director at the time of her marriage).  This art museum was the perfect choice for their desire of a thoughtful and intimate reception.  Peonies and garden roses were used throughout the day.  After the couple’s engagement, Rebekah’s family collected vintage dessert plates.  They were a beautiful addition to the cake table and will continue to serve as an heirloom for their family.

Augusta Wedding from David Strauss Photography + Artworks Wedding Cinema

From the very moment we met these two sweeties back in September, we knew we were going to love their wedding.  Love, love, love their wedding.  Because not only do they happen to be the type of cuties you instantly fall in love with (and I mean instantly), they also happen to be an uber-stylish duo to boot.  And, well.  That’s pretty fabulous, if you ask us.  So, to say we’ll be spending our Thursday soaking in every last second of their Big Day as captured by the ever-wonderful Artworks Wedding Cinema?  That’s an understatement.  And you should most definitely join us, because it’s just that good.

Oh, and we’re not done yet.  Check out the amazing gallery of images captured by David Strauss Photography.  They’re awesome.

From the Bride… My husband and I met while attending Lincoln Memorial University in the small southern town of Harrogate, Tennessee. We wanted a wedding that reflected the roots of our relationship with a laid back country wedding. We were so blessed to have my uncle officiate the ceremony which was more than we could have dreamed of. It was a perfect destination wedding weekend with friends and family from all over the country who enjoyed the property as well as the fresh pecans from the grove.

I planned and made almost every detail of the wedding from the invitations to the centerpieces and decor with the help of Laura Brown and Cheryl Meir. Although it was a challenge planning the wedding in a town I had only visited for a few days while living in Boca Raton, Florida it was amazing to see it all come together at the end.

My favorite part of the day was sitting down and enjoying the meal at the long farm table that I had be envisioning for months then dancing the night away with our best friends and love of my life. Advice I would give to future brides is to RELAX and take in the day. Don’t worry about every little detail. Things aren’t going to go as planned, you just have to roll with it, and enjoy the first of many incredible and wonderful days you have with your husband. The wedding is only the beginning of many wonderful years and memories to come make the most of it!

Augusta Wedding by Kaitie Bryant Photography

I don’t believe this darling soiree captured by Kaitie Bryant Photography could get more charming if it tried. Actually, I know it couldn’t. Of course it’s pretty as can be with its library venue and pretty maids and sweet bouquets – but it’s full of heart too. And that’s what really gets me. Everyone chipped in to make sure it was the prettiest day possible for these two lovebirds, and I do believe they succeeded and then some. See it all here!

From the Kaitie Bryant Photography…The bride and groom were on a tight budget but the bride (Elisa) was determined to pull off a beautiful day! Friends in the church and workplace offered all sorts of help for their wedding day, including a friend making their wedding cake, another friend giving them wooden benches made from pallets for their ceremony, their church letting them use their downtown location as a reception venue, and engagement portraits taken by another photographer friend.  Elisa really wanted a pretty location for the ceremony and they had been to concerts on the lawn at a local library, so they decided to just ask the librarian if anyone ever used it for a wedding ceremony.  No one had in the past but they were open to renting out the lawn for a wedding… so Elisa and Nathan had the inaugural wedding at the Appleby library.  The ceremony was so beautiful, from the flowers and mason jars and wooden benches to the different dresses each bridesmaid wore.  The groomsmen had suspenders and brown pants, not even the same brand but just the same color.  It was so neat to see how it all came together so beautifully and to watch Elisa in tears thank those around her who made it possible.  And the two of them just adore each other.  I love love!
