Whimsical Summer Wedding at Rip Van Winkle Gardens

This Bride’s classic Hollywood hair and stunning red lip makes my inner glam girl downright giddy. Greer Gattuso Photography captured every romantic glance and sweet kiss between these Southern cuties and their whimsical wedding was full of personal touches and vintage chic flair, all thanks to the planning power of Elyse Jennings Weddings.

From Greer Gattuso Photography… Under the enchanting oaks of Rip Van Winkle Gardens, Ellie and Brandon tied the knot! Their antique inspired soirée blended whimsical, nature-based beauty with tarnished brass relics that brought a romantic past to the present! This bride with her old soul spent her engagement shopping at estate sales and vintage markets to be able to layer tarnished candlesticks on top of old dusty books, and gold painted vases filled with flowers on top of mahogany side tables at the beginning of the aisle! And my, did it look pretty!

Their venue offered charming cottages to dress in and lush gardens to take photographs throughout! The old mansion offered a historic backdrop for their ceremony, the stillness of the river was the perfect contrast to their surprise firework show, and they danced all night on their checkered dance floor under the stars! A magical night under the moss covered oaks!
