Classic Springtime Dunaway Gardens Wedding

No one tells the story of a wedding day quite like Amy Arrington. She has this beautiful way of capturing even the simplest moments that take our breath away. And this al fresco beauty set in Georgia? Well, it’s one for the books. Planned by Chancey Charm with floral design by Amy Osaba, it’s a celebration inspired by an organic, Anthropologie-style aesthetic while playing to the cues of the springtime season. Watch moment after perfect moment unfold inside The Vault and film below.


From Amy Arrington Photography… Lisa & Brian were wed on May 2, 2015 in front of 110 guests in the charming amphitheater of Dunaway Gardens in Newnan, Georgia. Their early May wedding was inspired by the feeling of an al fresco dinner party with the whimsical decor of Anthropologie. With the help of event designer Marilisa Schachinger with Chancey Charm, the couple sought to blend traditional elements with an organic aesthetic and recruited Atlanta’s best vendors to bring their vision to life in one of Georgia’s most remarkable venues.

After the couple were wed by both of their fathers under a botanical chuppah, guests moved into the cocktail hour garden for hors d’oeuvres and a very southern game of corn hole. When it was time for dinner, everyone gathered under the reception tent for memorable toasts by the wedding party and delicious cuisine created by Sun In My Belly.

Once the sun had set and cake was cut and passed, the party moved into the party tent where guests danced the night away thanks to Emerald Empire Band. Brian even surprised his bride with a sweet serenade of “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green with the band. It was a sweet, personal and memorable day for all!

Ethereal + Elegant Morning Rise Inspiration

First up on this morning’s agenda? Find a way to replicate these pretty lil’ lens captures a la Sawyer Baird. Because there is no doubt that perfectly lit mornings punctuated with calming cups o’joe are something really magical. And if you think that’s as dreamy as it gets, just wait until you see how the rest of this beautiful day unfolds in THE VAULT, (hint: it’ll definitely make you a morning person)!

From Sawyer BairdWhen dreaming up your wedding day… I believe that you should always take the morning slow. As hard as that may seem. When dreaming up this session we wanted a classic bridal with neutral tones – along with a lot of emotion. Easily, your wedding morning is the first thing that came to mind.

The slow morning rise with a cup of coffee reflecting on the day that is about to be the most amazing day of your life is not only important, but beyond special.

Rustic, Elegant Wedding in Georgia at Vinewood Plantation

This wedding is so incredibly special. Special in the way that it is gorgeous, but also in the way that it is meaningful. It’s glamorous, but filled with so much heart you can’t help but feel something when pouring through Amy Arrington‘s stunning images. It’s warm, it’s cozy, it’s elegant, it’s filled with love –  it’s absolutely perfect. See just what I mean here.


From Amy Arrington PhotographyThe couple, Megan Loflin + Joe Sommers, were married at Vinewood Plantation on November 22, 2013, just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. We loved their “glitter + gold glam” theme at their reception. Fun fact about their “get away car” … it makes an appearance the Zac Brown Band’s music video called “Sweet Annie.”

From The Bride…My now husband, Joe, popped the question while we were visiting New York City, where we’d met while residing there two and half years ago. Having grown up in North Carolina and Georgia, we felt a strong calling to begin our next chapter in the South.

Friends and family were coming from all over the country for our wedding, so we really wanted them to experience a southern affair at its finest! We served apple pie moonshine during the cocktail hour, BBQ, for dinner and southern inspired confections for dessert. We danced the night away to an awesome, classic southern rock band!

My gown was my Grandmother’s, which had also been worn by my Mother and Great Aunt on their wedding days. With the help of a fantastic seamstress in Atlanta, we were able to redesign the gown into a style that better suited me. The gown turned out beautifully and the sentimental value of it is worth its weight in gold (which I used as my core color!).

Even though we chose a beautiful, rustic venue, I really wanted to create a glamorous setting inside the stable. With the help of some of the most talented people I have ever met, including my wedding planner, Eva Clark, this was accomplished. The best part is that our photographer captured our wedding perfectly and I can almost relive the day every time I look through the photo gallery!
