From J Morgan Flowers... When I think of Southern hospitality, I always think of good, homemade comfort food and being able to relax and enjoy the company! With that in mind, Aviva, of Kiss the Planner, and I set off to design the perfect home style wedding inspiration! We chose a short informal dress for the bride with well-worn cowboy boots and a loose, natural, hand-tied bouquet of orange roses, kangaroo’s paw, alstromeria, solidago, wheat and hanging amaranthus tied with burlap and tartan ribbon details. The bridesmaids carried a similar bouquet with splashes of blue delphiniums and topped of their casual look with cowboy hats! The groom, in his best shirt, wore a mango calla lily with touches of kangaroo’s paw and ribbon accents to match his new wife! The guests escort cards were postcards placed in a copper mail box telling the guests to relax and stay a while!

Southern style is all about the food, so we set a pine table with a seersucker runner, vintage dishes I inherited from my grandmother and greeted each guest with a large succulent! The long table was then outfitted with large pitchers of blue hydrangeas with a mix of the chosen florals and cattails. The food we chose to complement this shindig was cornbread, barbeque ribs, molasses baked beans, squash and corn, all washed down with a mix of flavored ginger ale and sodas presented in wooden pails! A wedding cake would have been too formal for such a casual affair, so a bundt cake topped with hydrangeas and a collection of homemade pies was the perfect ending to this feast! As favors, we presented gift bags of bread mixes and pepper jellies! We hope our home style inspiration shoot gives our Southern brides a few good ideas on how to bring your upbringing into your big day!
