Time and again, I've heard brides-to-be tell me how they found inspiration for their big day on Style Me Pretty, making it such an honor to log on every day. But the credit goes to our Little Black Book members and vendors for constantly creating the pretty for us to showcase. That lovely at hand? A dose of Southern wedding inspiration, infused with whimsy—blooms crafted with care by Poppy + Mint, details designed by Logan Doerries Design and Melissa's Fine Pastries on cake duty... all which make for one stunner of a gallery.

From Poppy + Mint Floral Company... We were supremely inspired by the grounds of Southern Oaks Plantation, and Logan of Logan Doerries Design styled the shoot to highlight a theme of whimsical elegance and Southern charm! The moss covered trees, and the stately columns of the venue provided the most stunning backdrop to accomplish this theme. Overall, we wanted the shoot to be romantic and timeless. The gown provided by Wedding Belles tied our theme together, perfectly! We wanted to stay within a mostly neutral palette while still incorporating subtly colorful tones, and Destiny with Poppy + Mint Floral Company created the most breathtaking floral that perfectly fit this bill. The floral inspired cake provided by Melissa's Fine Pastries complimented the florals in a lovely way! We also highlighted other southern elements such as the horses dressed in greenery wreaths, a classic rolls royce, and magnolia leaves and moss from the property to accent our custom stationery suite by Lady Adelaide, and southern details recently acquired from the Magnolia in Waco! Marissa Lambert captured the day through film, which gave a dreamy and ethereal vibe that radiated through each photograph.
