Soho House Wedding from J Morgan Flowers

Sometimes the shortest engagements yield the prettiest weddings. And this next wedding, sent into us by J Morgan Flowers proves just that. Pay close attention my friends because this gorgeous and intimate penthouse wedding for 10 was planned in just two weeks! We can’t help but fall fast in love with this romantic and spontaneous display of love. Join us in the gallery for even more.

From J Morgan Flowers… Eun planned her wedding in two weeks. Yes, you read that right — two weeks! After a whirlwind romance with Daniel and a ring on her finger, Eun called her family in Korea, and a wedding date was set! She booked the penthouse at The Soho House in South Beach as her wedding venue because it was the perfect space to hold her and her 10 guests. With Daniel’s Chinese roots, they kept with tradition and did a tea ceremony to honor the parents.

The ceremony was held with just the ocean view as a backdrop and those closest to them to witness. The table for the celebration dinner was adorned with three taller vases and topped with a lush, modern arrangement of hydrangeas, roses and lilies. The base was set with a collection of vases of various sizes, each full with lush florals and candles in between. Each napkin was adorned with a yellow rose to welcome the guests to this special occasion.

We wish Eun and Daniel a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness as they start out on the journey of husband and wife.

North Georgia Wedding from Valimont Photography

This rustic + elegant wedding at The Barn at High Point Farms from Valimont Photography is as sweet as they come. To keep herself on a tight budget, this graphic designer bride designed her own paper goods, handmade much of the decor and utilized inexpensive (but totally beautiful) elements like burlap and baby’s breath! And the end result? Pure perfection. See the rest right here!

From the Bride… I always dreamed of a rustic, elegant wedding. I knew going into our wedding that we were on a budget and I would have to make a lot of the decorations myself and get really creative with where our money was spent. We decided to have an outdoor June wedding at a barn in Flintstone, Georgia. The barn was perfect. We could have our ceremony and reception in the same location and it provided for a breathtaking backdrop to our special day. To save money, my bridesmaids wore different dresses all in similar shades of light blue. I got my dress on the sale rack and I designed my own save the dates, invitations, and programs. We used inexpensive items such as burlap and baby’s breath on the tables and I handmade the guest book as well as other little details. Being on a budget was difficult, but it made the day even more special because of all the little details and effort we put into it. It was my perfect day.

From Brenda Upton PhotographyThis unbelievably adorable couple tied the knot at the Walter’s Barn in Lula, Georgia. It was an outdoor farm wedding, complete with mason jars, church pews, DIY fan programs, bright, colorful flower arrangements and flower girls so adorable you’ll die. Inclement weather added a bit of stress, but in the end everything turned out flawless. It was one of my favorite weddings I’ve ever photographed.

From the Bride… We got married at my husband’s parents barn property on the Chattahoochee River in the North Georgia Mountains. The barn is in the Sautee Nacoochee Valley, and it just five minutes from Helen, Georgia. This wedding was almost all DIY, with an amazing family friend doing the wedding details. Danielle did all the decorations herself. The wedding was in October, so it was a sunny and cool night.

Gainesville Wedding from Amanda Suanne Photography

When you work at SMP, you spend a lot of time falling in love with gorgeous gowns – it just comes with the territory.  So, when this stunning Gainesville affair from Amanda Suanne Photography came our way, I fully expected to spend a few hours of my day dedicated to dress-only swooning.  But, the moment I spotted this glorious Amsale number, I knew a few hours wouldn’t be enough.  Because this is the kind of dress that is sooo take-your-breath-away gorgeous, you don’t know what to do with yourself. An amazing gown, an elegant affair and a whole lot of pretty.  Join me in the gallery for so much more.

From the Bride… Last October, Austin and I went on a weekend trip to Charleston. It is our favorite spot to visit during the fall, and we always spend hours walking around downtown, but we had never been out to any of the beaches there. The second morning of our trip, Austin woke me up extra early to go see Folly Beach, where we got engaged! It was one of the sweetest moments in my life, and I will always cherish our special weekend away. I was so excited to dive into our wedding that I started making notes on the drive back home to Georgia. 

Wedding planning was one of the most enjoyable things I’ve ever done. I loved every aspect of the planning process. From the beginning, I knew I wanted a traditional wedding. For our ceremony, Austin and I agreed that we wanted the elegance and grace that comes with being in a church, and I wanted that to carry over into our reception. My event decorator, Andy Beach, was so easy to work with.  The first time we met I told him that I wanted a “colorless” wedding with the fullest flower blooms he could find. The vision for our wedding day was classic with a contemporary twist. I really didn’t give him any other guidelines, yet somehow he created exactly what I had dreamed of. I am still amazed at the beautiful flower arrangements Andy and his team created. They used lots and lots of hydrangeas with cabbage roses, peonies and ranunculus. Everything was beautiful and just perfect.

Stunning as the decor was, the most important detail of our wedding was making sure that we had fun. I told my parents several times that we wanted the beginning of our wedding to be traditional and sweet, but that after dinner I wanted a fun mess out on the dance floor — and that is exactly what we got! My dad picked the band before I even knew who they were, and they did not disappoint. Our friends and family danced and sang the night away. It really was the best night of our lives. Before the night ended we gave all of our guest fresh apple pies from McDonald’s in a special box to remind them that “Love is Sweet.”

I’ve been struggling for what seems like forever to find just the right words to describe my feelings for this beautiful Blue Ridge affair, but I just keep coming up short.  Problem is, I am sooo beyond obsessed with every gorgeous detail, there’s not a word in the English language that can give it justice. Not a one.  So, please excuse my bumbling as I tell you that I am head over heels for the breathtaking chapel, rustic backyard reception and beyond amazing images by Amy Arrington Photography - and then prepare to fall in love with every last one.  Click here for more.

From the Bride… John-Paul and I met at a Halloween party in 2010. We were both newly divorced and struggling with that stigma. We were happy to find understanding from each other and quickly became a couple. We have worked hard to not repeat our past mistakes and make sure this marriage is our last. Although previously married, we wanted to make our commitment to each other a day we would always remember surrounded by those we love. Our wedding was in the north Georgia mountains in the town of Blue Ridge. We had had the ceremony at a rustic little chapel in the woods, Pleasant Gap Tarpley Chapel, that is only used once a year for a family reunion. It was built in the 1800s but was rebuilt in the early 1900s. We had a cocktail reception right next to the chapel in my family’s blueberry patch, and our reception was held at our second home right down a gravel road from the chapel. My family and extended family owns all the land between the chapel and our second home, and I grew up coming to these mountains and driving past the little white chapel in the woods. When I brought John-Paul to the mountains for the first time, he was completely at home, and since then, it’s been a special place for us. My parents passed away in 2007, and this was also a very special place for them, so it felt like a great way to honor both my parents and our relationship to have our wedding there. A couple of other things we did to honor my parents were that I wore my mother’s wedding veil, and we used my mother’s vintage napkins at the reception. She loved vintage linens and had over 100 white napkins.

We created most of the decor components ourselves, with lots of help from our friends and family. Our vision was rustic and simple, with neutral colors, burlap, twine and mason jars. All the pallet furniture and the popcorn cart at the cocktail reception were built by John-Paul and me, with the help of Pinterest. I made the large moss B hanging on the chapel, the burlap table runners, the mason jar table numbers, the matchbooks, the napkin rings, the signs and programs. I used my silhouette machine to make all the signs and used mostly pallet wood and frames from the thrift store that I painted and transformed. I like simplicity when it comes to flowers, so I also did the flower arrangements and bouquets. I scoured thrift stores for books about love or weddings and used those under the table number markers. We got the honey from a local beekeeper, and we’ve gotten so many compliments since the wedding about how amazing it is.

The day was exactly what we wanted. Everything was perfect and reflected “us.” The one funny incident, which you will see in the pictures, is that while I was waiting to walk down the aisle, I was standing over a yellow jackets’ nest. As I started down the aisle, my uncle jerked me back and started trying to release the 20 yellow jackets that were caught between my dress and the lace overlay. Thankfully, they were not against my skin and no one got stung. It at least kept me from crying down the aisle.  John-Paul’s daughter, and now my stepdaughter, Kaila, was our flower girl. We had a special place for the kids to eat and play until the dancing started, and they all had a blast, as you will see in the pictures.
