Rustic Chic Vinewood Plantation Wedding Film

I think every Monday morning deserves a little something cozy, especially when it’s a bit gloomy outside as it is today in our little corner of New England. And this sweet film from Artworks Wedding Cinema? It hits the spot. Set at Vinewood Plantation and packed with all kinds of rustic chic goodness, it warms the soul. Grab your mug o’ coffee and press play m’dears!

Plantation

From Artworks Wedding CinemaJosee and Adam’s beautiful Vinewood Plantation wedding had all the amazing details that a rustic chic wedding has to offer. My personal favorite was the bright color of the bridesmaids dresses, which really shined amidst the neutral tones the plantation has to offer. Fortunately, the rain held off for the couple to have their ceremony outside beneath a rustic huppah flowing with soft sheers under a large Georgia oak tree. In lieu of a guestbook, guests were invited to sign their names on a quilt. In trying to keep the impending rain out of the picture, the couple enjoyed a short and sweet ceremony where the rabbi was both sentimental and inserted a bit of humor throughout! Guests then enjoyed a wonderful dinner inside the barn as well as the outdoor horseshoes and a fire pit. Dancing the night away culminated in the couple’s sparkler departure where guests were then asked to take home some yummy peach butter as a reminder of the day. We wish Josee and Adam a wonderfully happy life together!

North Georgia Wedding at Vinewood Plantation from Alucinarte Films

The first time I spotted this breathtaking Vinewood  Plantation wedding, I did a double-take.  Like a stare for a minute, look away, stare for another minute kind of double-take.  You know, just to make sure I wasn’t completely imagining the beautiful grounds and historic stables draped in gorgeous chandeliers. And when I had convinced myself that this is a wedding that did indeed take place, I dived into the details like any wedding lover should.  Because with a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown, the fab stylings of Vinewood Events, Inc and an entire gallery of lovely captured by Alucinarte Films, this is a day straight from a fairytale.  See it all here.

And even more gorgeous to devour with this sweet film from Alucinarte Films.

From the Bride… Jeremy and I were so blessed when it comes to our wedding day, and for so many reasons; all of our close friends and family in one place to honor our commitment, day full of sunshine, yummy food and drinks, amazing florals and design.  You could not only feel the love you could ‘see’ the love that day in all the fine details and glamorous touches. So many people worked so hard to make our day special.  To top it all off, Vinewood is owned by a friend I’ve had for over 20 years, making our wedding day even more heartfelt and full circle for me. It was a day that can never be duplicated and one that we will look back on forever with gratitude, happy hearts and huge smiles.

I can never thank Claudette Montero from Alucinarte Films enough for all her hard work that day . The day was long and hectic and it went by so fast. Now, every time I look at her images it brings an instant smile to my face just remembering those feelings like it was yesterday. The memories she managed to capture we (and my family) will have to cherish for the rest of our lives. She is very talented and asking her to participate in our wedding day was one of the best decisions I made as a bride to be. Our wedding was our idea of perfection in every way… simply magical.

From Vinewood EventsWhen a dear friend of mine and her fiance began the search for their wedding venue, I was over the moon when they chose Vinewood Plantation. Vinewood was a bit of an unusual choice for Casey and Jeremy. They live in the DC/Virginia area and both of their families live there, as well, but once they thought about all of the extended family and friends they realized that for the most part no matter where they chose their venue would be a destination wedding.

Casey had always imagined her wedding being a formal black tie event. So with a lot of faith that comes from a deep rooted friendship, she entrusted me to create a formal ballroom reception feeling within our historic stables. Beginning with a color palette of black, white and silver the details all began to come together.

Most importantly memories were made. Fantastic memories to add to an already incredible journal of life’s experiences shared with friends. A huge thanks to all fantastic vendors for doing what they do best and for making Casey and Jeremy’s wedding day such a wonderful experience from start to finish.

Newnan Wedding at Dunaway Gardens from This Is You Photography

There’s no mistaking that when you’re planning a DIY wedding, you need all the help you can get. This lucky bride just so happened to get tons of help from her artsy and crafty mom and together they created one fabulous day. From the doilie painted table clothes to the antique brooch bouquet, this wedding is a total original. This is You Photography captured it all perfectly. Click here for the full gallery.

From the Bride… After I got engaged the first thing my mom and I tried to nail down was the venue and the overall feel/look of the wedding. Heath and I love doing and being outside, so I had narrowed it down to an outdoor ceremony. We looked around the Newnan area and my mom had visited Dunaway Gardens and she was in love. I went out there as soon as I could and saw what she was talking about. It was beautiful and I knew that it was the spot.

I had always loved casual, rustic, antique decor used in weddings so now that we had the location the look was starting to develop. I was inspired by antique ball jars for centerpieces and wanted to use burlap since it was a great natural backdrop for just about anything. I didn’t use a wedding planner- my mom is a retired art teacher, so once I talked about what I wanted and showed her things I liked she ran with it. We spray painted doilies onto the table cloths, she scavenged antique shops for jars, made a moss P and you can see from the pictures the list goes on and on…. I owe her BIG! and more importantly I trusted her with anything she suggested she was making. One thing I did want was a brooch bouquet. Flowers wilt and die and I loved the idea that its something I could keep and remember the day. I also love the idea that if I have girls, I can give them one of the brooches off my bouquet. One of my favorite parts of the day was my dress…. after traveling and trying on who knows how many dresses I had narrowed it down to a 2 dresses but before I went back to try them on I had an appointment at New Natalies in Atlanta. I went and saw the bottom of my dress in a bag and said,” I like the lace, lets try this on.” I saved it for last, and when I saw myself in it, I knew.

For music, my mom really liked the idea of a string quartet playing and we asked Jacob Winslett, our praise band leader at our church, to do a solo. Jacob sang “Take My Life” by Chris Tomlin during the lighting of the unity candles. For the reception music we wanted to have variety and we thought a dj would be best for that. Lastly, another part I knew from the begining I wanted to include, was a paper lantern release. I had seen the tradition for couples to write love wishes on the lantern and then releasing it for it to come true. I think they are beautiful and thought it would be a cool thing to include.
