Jackson Wedding Film from Nathan Willis Wedding Films

“Here’s to your first love being your last love.” How stinking cute is that? That is what one of the guests at this wedding wrote to the couple. They were wed in a sweet as can be soiree in Jackson, and our lovely LBBer Nathan Willis Wedding Films was there to capture the joy of the day in one of our favorite ways possible – with some extra fabulous wedding cinematography. So sit back and take it in this morning my loves, because it’s a good one.

Trotter and I were headed down to New Orleansthe Mardi Gras Marathon and my 30th birthday. All I wanted to do for my birthday was to go to Jackson Square to have coffee and beignets. So that morning we walked to Cafe Du Monde and enjoyed our breakfast. Afterward, we walked around the square and as we passed the Cathedral, Trotter lead me into the park to a bench. We sat down and just took in the morning. Trotter asked me, “Do you know what I want?” I said, “No what?” He then got down on his knee and said “I want you to marry me!” At that moment I couldn’t even see my ring through my waterfall of tears.

We decided to have the wedding at The South because we thought it was the best location to hold both the wedding and the reception. It is a beautiful old warehouse that was renovated with exposed bricks and beams. We are Christians and wanted a church wedding but realized you don’t have to be in a church for it to be religious because the good Lord would be with us wherever we were. Plus Wendy Putt is the caterer for The South so it was a pretty easy decision.

I wanted an elegantly vintage wedding. I sat down with my sister Kendall Poole, who was my wedding planner, and her assistant Emily and we brainstormed. We looked through magazines, websites, and, of course, Pintrest. Being honest, I was not a traditional bride. I asked my sister to take care of all the details. I wanted to focus more on my groom and our marriage. I had a few things I really wanted but left most of it up to my sister.

Jackson Wedding at Duling Hall from TULIP

This Jackson wedding has mastered the art of light-hearted and fun-filled. Some flag waving here, a stop at the malt shop there and all in all a wedding that seamlessly blends great florals and styling by TULIP and lovely moments captured by Rachel Brooks. The head to head moment between the Bride and Groom in the church is heart-melting and reason enough to check out the rest of the wedding right here. And for all you cute detail lovers, there’s plenty of those too.

From TULIPI met Mary Margaret a couple years ago when she inquired about working for TULIP. Although we were not hiring at the time, we stayed in touch and ended up working on some really fun invitation/print work projects together. She is such a talented designer, and I absolutely adore her work. So when she called to tell me she was engaged and wanted TULIP to do her flowers and collaborate on styling, I was obviously thrilled! I had SO much fun working on this wedding with her. The day was filled with elements of paper, wood, lace, muslin, burlap, succulents, garden roses and mercury glass. An organic palette of green and ivory was accented with coral for a splash of color. It was the perfect combination of DIY details, organic accents and a touch of romance. Rachel Brooks did such an amazing job capturing the love that day … and the details too!

From Molly of MOLLYGEEdesignsA few of us creatives in the wedding industry decided we wanted to do an inspiration shoot that was not your “traditional southern wedding.” In the South, it can be extremely easy for wedding after wedding to be the same ole, same ole. We at MOLLYGEEdesigns wanted to show our brides how versatile the line can be for all wedding themes with birdcage veils, fascinators, sashes, and necklaces. We also styled a variety of bridesmaid and flower girl hair pieces, and even men’s bow ties! All accessories featured in this shoot were hand made by MOLLYGEEdesigns and available on our website. Our favorite local florist, Tulip, really outdid herself, from the flowers, to linens, to print work, to dessert tables, and backdrops! Beth Morgan of B. Mo Foto captured the wedding beautifully, and Antionique Battaglia and Bay Dewitt of Nathan’s Salon did an amazing job styling hair and makeup. Our favorite part of the shoot: a GLITTER filled goodbye!

Jackson Hole Wedding by Christian Oth

Bonfires and gorgeous tulle gowns, pine trees and peonies; it’s combinations like these that completely redefine the idea of rustic. AND it’s weddings like this gem that merry those rustic details with a gorgeous layer of elegance that fits right at home with the backdrop of Jackson Hole. It doesn’t get much prettier than saying “I Do” out in the landscapes of Wyoming and seen through the lens of Christian Oth, there’s nothing quite like it. It’s art in the form of breathtaking wedding images. Click here for so much more.

Snuggle in for a wee bit more with this moving snapshot of the day captured by Ryan Hinman Films. It’s goose bump inducing, heart pitter-pattering goodness and totally brings to life all that love swirling around the day…

From the Bride… Jackson Hole has been important to my family ever since my dad headed out west in 1969, at age 16, to work on a ranch as a cowhand. Over the years, he convinced the rest of us to love it as much as he does (it wasn’t hard!). Garrett and I first met during our freshman year of high school in Philadelphia. After being best friends for the first two years of high school, we finally dated for our junior and senior years. It was after our college graduation on a trip to Jackson Hole that we rekindled our romance. Since that time, Jackson has become our home away from home. Over the years, Garrett and I have enjoyed countless adventures there and could not think of a better place to start our life together.

Sharing Wyoming with our closest friends and family brought us so much joy. We knew that planning a wedding out west would be a logistical challenge because we live in New York City, and my parents live in Philadelphia, but we were determined to make it happen. It has been my dream to have a wedding at my parents’ home for years, so my mom, sisters and I worked together, and in the end, all of our ideas came together to make an event that felt personal, warm, and reflective of Garrett and me as a couple. Even my dad chipped in to the design by creating that awesome sign post and our Just Hitched signs! Our wedding weekend was everything we imagined it could be, and most of all it was about family, friendship and the authenticity of young love.

Jackson Wedding by Lauren F. Liddell Photography

There is a huge grin on my face this morning thanks to this spring-inspired soiree by Lauren F. Liddell Photography. It just makes me want to find the gorgeous Mississippi field where this wedding took place and twirl around Sound of Music style. The sweet details, gorgeous flowers and vintage vases are divine, and may I just say I L.O.V.E that the bride rocked her spectacles on her big day. So fabulous. So although I won’t be twirling in Mississippi anytime soon, I will be spending my day twirling in this lovely post and its full gallery of images, and I highly advise you do the same…

From the Bride…My inspiration for the day was nature and springtime, I wanted the wedding to have a happy relaxed feel. My favorite part of the day is a tie, I loved the ceremony, being surrounded by those closest to us and having them witness us dedicate our lives to each other was so special, but I also loved riding away with Drew on the golf cart because it felt like the start of a big adventure. My advice for brides: There are a million beautiful options out there as far as dresses, venues, decorations, etc. Try to always let your decisions reflect who you are as a couple. Also keep in mind that you will not be able to please everyone, no matter how hard you try.

Flower colors were yellow, creme, and white and included bitty balls, ranunculus, and monte casino to provide a “wildflower” theme.  Seated tables at the reception were covered with burlap.  Centerpieces were bubble bowls filled with a wildflowers in fold up twig stands.  The menu for the reception included macaroni and cheese served in ramekins, cornbread muffins with black-eyed pea salsa, baby BLT’s, baby barbeque sandwiches, baby banana puddings in small glass containers, crawfish souffle with toasted bread rounds, watermelon slices with the rind on, and water with lemon, sweet tea, and yellow lemonade served in mason jars.  Tree stumps were used on the banana pudding table and the wedding cake table.  A moss covered column was the centerpiece on the main food table

My mom and I collected bottles for the grouping on the mantel and Wendy provided the yellow, creme, and white flowers.  Mason jars tied with twine to the white wedding chairs were filled with yellow, creme, and white flowers and used for pew markers.  We tied bottles to the rafters on either side of the fireplace mantel and Wendy provided flowers for those.
