Get the Look: A Palm Beach Inspired Brunch

As the wether warms up, we can’t help but dream of all the outdoor brunching in our future. It’s a favorite past time and one that the colorful surroundings of Palm Beach know all too well. So when this team of vendors, including Design Studio South + Kato Floral Designs, decided to showcase the beauty of a modern, Floridian inspired brunch, you bet Lily Pulitzer, flamingoes and mimosas were involved. Click through the slideshow for all the fun details captured by Rach Lea Photography.

From Design Studio South We toured the new Brice Hotel and were immediately inspired to do a super fun modern twist on a Palm Beach inspired shoot. From the hot pink brunch invitations, to the flamingo coasters, we had nothing short of fun that day.

Colorful Southern Spring Wedding at UGA

With spring in the air, these diehard University of Georgia fans returned to their collegiate roots (they got married in the UGA Chapel!) for this colorful, family-filled wedding in Athens. While the Groom and his groomsmen rollicked around the campus, the Bride looked stunning in crystal-embellished Maggie Sottero, offset by the bridesmaids’ coral Bari Jay gowns, with Brita Photography capturing all the pretty for us to share with you, here!

From Brita PhotographyMorgan and Drew are loyal University of Georgia fans and alumni so it only made sense that their wedding would be in Athens, GA! When I arrived at the Georgia Gameday Center where all the bridesmaids were getting ready, I was greeted with big smiles and warm hugs. I couldn’t wait to get started! All of her bridal details were stunning: Her teal wedding invitations, coral wedding shoes and coral bridesmaids dress, and beautiful teal, ivory and coral bouquets (with peonies – my favorite!). Drew wrote the sweetest note for his bride inside the ring box, too: “Because you are my best friend.” It just melts your heart!

Morgan and Drew’s ceremony was at the gorgeous white Chapel on North Campus and their reception was held at the UGA Classic Center. We took the shuttle bus all around campus and stopped at several important places to them: North campus, the UGA stadium, the grand staircase, Magnolia’s, and behind the Chapel (to ring the bell)!

It was the perfect day to get married. Spring was in the air and we were able to capture so many beautiful pictures and moments!

From The Bride… We wanted our wedding day to be romantic and classic, something that would be feel timeless when we looked back and thought of everything it represented. It was hard trying to imagine all of the smaller details put together for one big event, but I knew I wanted to keep the details to kind of an understated elegance look where nothing was too much. This lead to the beautiful, but subtle colors of lilac and gray, and when it was all said and done, it was beyond perfect.

We brought a lot of our own stuff in to the venue, and I cannot thank my family enough for helping to make and put together so many of the details that made everything unique. My dad handmade all of the table numbers and our chalkboard, we had a family friend make our wedding cake, my mom helped make my photobooth, but it was all of that and more that made our day even more special. The venue also has these large bay windows in it that brings in the most magnificent light, so we didn’t have to do a lot of decorating, but the flowers from Amy Osaba paired with the candles and lighting of the room just made it all look so enchanting. It was the perfect amount of romance and party for our wedding.

Everyone had such a good time, and I can’t imagine our day being captured by any other photographer! Cory and I were just so overwhelmed by the love and support from everyone on our wedding day, and it really was everything we could have imagined.

From the beautiful Bride… Dan and I share a contagious kind of love that surrounds us and makes everyone around feel happy and at ease, so when it came time to plan our wedding the most important thing was to bring together all of our closest friends and family for a fun celebration inspired by a mashup of the best of both of us. Since our love brought me to Atlanta (we dated long distance for a year before I decided to move ), it was an obvious choice to get married in the city where we began our life together! Our lovely photographers, Rustic White, helped us TREMENDOUSLY in helping me, a non- native, find amazing vendors and the place where we got married!

We were so happy with the way everything turned out. It was everything we dreamed about and more!

From the Bride… To describe the day in a nutshell: Better than I could have ever dreamed. In order for me to describe the day, I would have to go back a bit and describe how we got there. When my fiancé and I got engaged, we knew from the start we wanted a wedding that would be “us”. Not one of these mega blow-out weddings you go to or the chic fancy weddings you see in the magazines. We wanted something that spoke who we were as a couple. I am one who loves the small intimate gatherings, rustic yet elegant decor, beautiful but simple flowers and good food and wine. My fiancé, who is an executive chef at a private country club, focuses on food and wine first, then the surroundings. The good thing is that we both had the same vision when it came to our wedding. We wanted somewhere that was local, beautiful setting and, of course, good food. This is how we decided on Bistro VG. 

October 10, 2014 was a beautiful day. The temperature was perfect and not a cloud in the sky. For our wedding, we had rented out the back room at Bistro VG, a local restaurant in Roswell, Georgia that has been around for years.We had only invited thirty-two people; mostly just family and a few very important friends who had been big influences in our lives. The staff had transformed the back room into a mock chapel, and it looked beautiful. The rustic white painted brick walls, the linen chairs and elegant, yet simple flowers really made the room unique. I had made programs with my best friend that laid on every chair, and on the back we printed a thank you from my fiancé and me for everyone being there.

Our service was performed by a local minister who was amazing. She let us tailor our whole service to fit exactly what we wanted. One great idea that we did was a wine box and love letter time capsule. This went in place of the traditional candle lighting ceremony. Another aspect of the ceremony that I thought was great was the inclusion of my fiancé’s daughter. Not only am I saying ” I Do” to him, but also her, and we wanted her to know how much we both love her.

After our ceremony, we invited guest out front to the restaurant bar for cocktail, this was the perfect chance to go take some pictures. And let me tell you about our photographer, Michelle Scott – she was incredible. My fiancé had never met her, but when he did, he instantly felt comfortable. He’s not one to have his picture taken, but she just made it feel natural with no anxiety. We proceeded to take pictures with family before finishing with some shots of just the two of us outside. I do have to mention that she got some incredible shots of me getting ready and some timeless pictures of my dress.

After about forty five minutes of cocktails, we invited every one back into the back room, which had been transformed by the staff into one large communal dining table, outfitted with cream and tan linen, beautiful flower arrangements, candles and place cards that I had made. We decided to have platters of cheese and charcuterie out for our guest, and my now husband had a bourbon table out for anyone who would like bourbon. Our guest book was the Bouchon Cookbook by Thomas Keller (because food plays such a big role in our family it just felt appropriate and we thought it was unique) that guests could sign on any page they wished. Our cake table was beautiful. We had both the wedding cake and groom’s cake made by Frosted Pumpkin, two forks with Mr. & Mrs. on them,  a cake sever that had our names and date engraved on them, and more of the flowers we had chosen.

From then on, it was a very informal yet formal dinner. There were toasts, bottles of wine being opened and, of course, great food. One of the best and most fun parts of the night was the photos we took outside after dinner. We had asked Michelle if we could do pictures with sparklers to make a heart, dance in the lighted trees outside and she delivered. She was so fun to work with. She made taking pictures so fun, that we decided to run across the street and stand in the median while traffic was coming, just to capture the moment. And I do have to say that when we got our pictures back, I was blown away. They are incredible. My husband is a fan of black and white photos, and was not disappointed at all. Just to go back and look at them lets us relive it all over again.

After our pictures were over, we went back in, told our guest goodbye and jumped in our private car waiting for us and headed home as husband and wife. To some our wedding doesn’t seem like a lot, but to us it was the world. Having such a small intimate wedding at such a unique place with “us” written all over it was magical. I would never have wanted anything different.
