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.

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 Photography… Morgan 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!
