Tea parties are the best, don't you think?  They are like this crazy cool nod to classic romance (think Jane Austen) with an elegant vibe that seriously can't be beat.  So, a tea party inspiration shoot?  Amazing. Especially when it's a sweet collaboration between some of Georgia's finest vendors, including Pretty Swell PartiesBloomin' Bouquets and Rebecca Diane Invitation Boutique.  Oh, and the vintage china from Vintage English Teacup?  Beyond beautiful.  See every last moment captured by Julie Anne in the full gallery.

From Pretty Swell Parties... We envisioned an afternoon tea party with a soft romantic feel, and a modern twist. So we mixed the sweet elements of lace and vintage china, with bright and modern colors like hot pink and orange.

We were lucky to have our very own English tea expert in Vanessa from Vintage English Teacup, who assured us that the blustery cold rain we had all day only added to the authenticity of the shoot. Luckily the venue at Hawks Ridge Country Club has some beautiful covered porches with amazing views that provided some protection from the rain!

Vanessa's gorgeous selection of china and linens paired perfectly with the furniture selection from Crush Vintage rentals, a new vintage rental company, who came armed with a lovely selection of tables and chairs, while the gals from Bloomin' Bouquet's Unique Floral and Event Design brought the most gorgeous roses that provided just the kick of color we needed to keep things fun and fresh.

The invitation suite, along with the menu cards, tea bag favors and escort card display were created by debut invitation designer Rebecca Diane {Stationary Boutique}. Rebecca has the utmost attention for details, which results in exquisite paper products that are so highly customized to coordinate with every little detail, like the gorgeous lace cake created by Sweet Peeps Bakery and the gorgeous lace dress provided by BelFiore Bridal.

Julie from Julie Anne Wedding Photography really captured all of the details so beautifully, despite the torrential downpour (and tornado sirens going off!) around us, including the warm moments between our lovely couple, Terah and Michael, even though they were freezing in such unusual weather for a Georgia spring!
