At-Home Elevated Farm Chic Wedding

[field title=”Wedding Colors”]

Yellow, peach, orange, sage, green, aubergine, sea grass, and violet.

[field title=”Design / Vibe / Vision”]

Because we were getting married at my parents’ farm in Athens, Georgia, we landed on the vibe of “farm chic.” We worked with Soeur Events to execute our vision of a cozy, home wedding with a modern twist. We wanted to combine traditional farm aesthetics (fields, grasses, trees, rustic finishes) with refined and sophisticated artistic flourishes from Soeur Events and Pollen Flowers & Goods. The design included everything from an embellished tree stump arrangement to direct our guests to the ceremony site to an exuberant arrangement of baby’s breath as a focal point to our ceremony. Quote from Soeur Events (event designer): “There’s something truly magical about an at-home wedding, and it’s an area where our expertise in tenting truly shines. We take immense pleasure in crafting bespoke experiences tailored to each client’s vision. For Callie, it was essential to create an event that stood apart from her sister’s, and we’re proud to say we delivered beyond expectations. Guests were greeted with refreshing cocktails on the lawn upon arrival, followed by a heartfelt ceremony in a secluded field lovingly prepared by the bride’s father. His dedication, from tending to ant hills to chopping wood, epitomized the lengths to which families go to ensure a flawless celebration. Underneath an elegant sailcloth tent, guests savored culinary delights from carefully curated stations, all in harmony with the rustic charm of the farmhouse surroundings, a vision meticulously overseen by Callie’s mother, whose impeccable interior design taste left a lasting impression.”

[field title=”Proposal Story”]

We met in Atlanta in June 2020 through mutual friends. It was the first weekend in Atlanta after the pandemic began when restaurants and bars were allowed to be open. Woody was out with his friends, and I was out with mine, and then one of our mutual friends introduced us at the restaurant. We talked at the bar in the restaurant until it closed. The proposal took place at my parent’s farm in Athens, Georgia, which later became the venue for our wedding. It’s a very special spot for us as it represents family time relaxing in the country. That weekend, my older sister Anna was coming to the farm with her family, and Woody knew I would want to drive up to see them. On Saturday morning, we went for a walk, and he proposed to me at the pond on our property. When we got back to the house, both of our families were there to celebrate. Later that day, we went to downtown Athens, and ten of my best friends surprised me at a bar with champagne in hand! It was a day full of surprises and love from family and friends! When it came to deciding where the wedding would take place, choosing the farm was easy because it’s such a special, sentimental place to us. My older sister got married there as well, and I knew that I would want to do the same someday. One of the best parts of having it there was that we were able to have all of our favorite people in a place that was so familiar and meaningful to everyone. I was so excited being able to wake up there the morning of the wedding and get ready with all my best friends in my favorite place!

[field title=”Wedding Gown”]

I walked into my appointment at Mandi Jackson Bridal in Atlanta I thought I already knew what I wanted. But when I put on the Oscar de la Renta dress, I knew it was the one! It was something completely different than I had ever pictured myself wearing. It felt utterly timeless and I especially loved the floral applique details. We customized the dress with shoulder straps for the ceremony, which later came off for the reception. Near the end of the reception, I changed into a short dancing dress by Amur. It felt wonderful to lighten up at that point. And it was fun to wear a second dress. I chose to wear white all weekend. At the rehearsal dinner, I wore a white linen maxi by ALEXIS.

[/field]
[field title=”Bridesmaid Dresses”]

I knew from the beginning that I did not want traditional bridesmaids dresses and thought it would be more fun for everyone to choose a dress that they felt comfortable wearing and that they could wear again! I had been a bridesmaid in at least 10 weddings, and I did not want my bridesmaids to be stuck buying one more bridesmaids dress that would only be worn once. I gave everyone a color palette of earth-toned dresses and told them the dresses could be floral or solid, so there was a mix of each. I also sent everyone some inspiration photos to help them when looking for dresses. Each bridesmaid sent me their dress prior to picking for final approval, and it ended up working out perfectly. I thought all of the dresses looked great together, and they complemented the farm’s rustic charm and blended in with the surroundings. My two sisters were my maid and matron of honor. I wanted them to stand out from the rest of the bridesmaids as they were the only ones who stood next to me during the service, so they wore matching white dresses.

[/field]
[field title=”Groomsman Attire”]

Although our wedding was in the country, we wanted a certain level of formality so the dress code was black tie. Everyone looked sharp in their tuxedos, especially Woody, who wore a classic black tux by Sid Mashburn and a black silk bowtie

[field title=”Food & Drink”]

After the ceremony, we passed signature cocktails to the guests. The drinks included my favorite, a margarita, and Woody’s favorite, an old-fashioned. Guests enjoyed Dennis Dean‘s passed hors d’oeuvres which included caprese skewers, lobster rolls, ahi tuna crudo and Spanish Christorra in puff pastry. Although we had originally considered doing a seated dinner, we decided that food stations would encourage guests to move around the property and sample a variety of exquisite dishes. We had four chef-attended stations, including street tacos, shrimp, and grits, leek-wrapped halibut over fettuccini, and braised short ribs with mashed potatoes. Guests mingled and ate while taking full advantage of the lounge areas designed by Soeur Events.

[/field]
[field title=”Florals & Decor”]

Quote from Pollen Flowers & Goods: “The style of the flowers needed to suit the family’s property, not only the pastoral nature of their landscape but also the modern but rustic style of the house. But, we had to be careful – we didn’t want anything to go dark or blend in too much — so we chose bright materials that would show up against the more organic elements we picked to use, like the tree stumps, baskets, and our grass pendants. We achieved this by using the white baby’s breath, white delphinium and yellow butterfly ranunculus, also bright yellow velvet ribbons. To keep these more pristine flowers feeling appropriate, we mixed in lots of foraged branches and plants that grow and bloom at that time of year. I loved that we were able to pull off a somewhat dressy event without feeling too “woodland.” I love the woodland look, but I think it can feel dated and dark if not in the right setting. This was both happy and bright while still reflecting the family’s easy and outdoorsy style.”

[/field]
[field title=”Wedding Cake”]

We tried to use as many local vendors as possible for our wedding, and the cake was no exception. Our favorite baker in Athens is Cecilia’s Cake Shop. After our tasting, we decided on a classic 3-tier buttercream wedding cake with vanilla and chocolate layers. Pollen Flowers & Goods adorned it with a few loose blooms of purple clematis on the vine. Just like the wedding itself, the cake was a perfect mix of traditional and rustic sophistication.

[/field]
[field title=”Readings, Ceremony Music, Reception Songs”]

We loved it when the band came out with horns and led us and the guests to the dance floor to transition from dinner to dancing. Our first dance together was “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne. My favorite memory from the reception was dancing on stage with Woody and looking out and seeing the dance floor filled with all of our best friends and family, knowing they were having such a great time. Our band, TPG, was truly amazing and played for three straight hours.

[/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #1″]

Soeur Events orchestrated a beautiful white sailcloth tent decorated with hanging basket weave lanterns and inviting lounge areas. One of my favorite details was a large square wooden bar that served guests on all four sides so that no one had to wait in line for a drink. Milk and Honey Bartending was on hand to make cocktails all night long. Pollen Flowers & Goods decorated the bar with large foraged greenery in oversized hand-blown vases and finished with a loosely tied yellow velvet ribbon.

[/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #2″]

We wanted to finish the evening with a bang, so we arranged to have a sparkler exit outside the tent. Although it had been sprinkling on and off that night, the rain wrapped up at just the right time (I swear Erica Missell from Soeur arranged this just for us!). We took one last look at our guests, and Woody gave me a big kiss. Then, we took off in a vintage white Buick Wildcat convertible.

[/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #3″]My parents were both deeply involved in preparing for the wedding since it was hosted at their home. They worked with Soeur to ensure that the house itself as well as the entire property was primed and ready for hosting our weekend. And now that it’s over, we feel so lucky that we can return there and be reminded of our wonderful wedding celebration.

A Southern Spring Wedding Along the Chattahoochee River


[section title=”The Planning”]
[field title=”Wedding Colors”]A spring color palette of blues and greens, creamy whites, and pops of buttery yellow. [/field]
[field title=”Design / Vibe / Vision”]

From Evermore Wed: Caroline and Jason had already chosen their venue when they reached out to us for planning and design services. Their chosen venue is a 1000-acre resort nestled along the Chattahoochee River and the pine trees of southwest GA. Taking inspiration from Caroline’s classic taste, the indoor/outdoor flow of the venue, and the spring season of the wedding, we gravitated toward a palette of blues and greens, creamy whites, and pops of buttery yellow.

[/field]
[field title=”Proposal Story”]Caroline is a consultant, Jason is an electrical engineer. They met and began dating in high school and both attended Georgia Tech. Caroline is a classic beauty, exuding a natural, easy elegance. Jason is fun, easy-going, and loves to laugh.[/field]

Dinner was hosted in the west ballroom of The Stables. The bridal party was seated at a large estate table adorned with a lush runner of blue hydrangea (the bride’s favorite).

[/field]
[field title=”Florals & Decor”]

The outdoor ceremony took place in front of The Stables at a large white pergola atop a cobblestone courtyard. We wanted to soften the white structure and make it feel as though it had always been there so the florist, Blooming Bouquets, covered it in wispy greenery and soft white blooms. The large ceremony space was made even more intimate with the addition of a greenery and floral covered archway that guests and wedding party entered through. For the reception decor, Each place setting featured the signature blue and white stripe on the napkin as well as on the menu. Each napkin was tied with a Southern Tribute acrylic napkin and gold leaf napkin ring that featured spring elements like magnolia blooms, dragon flies, and bees (a nod to the couples’ alma mater Georgia Tech). Classic cut crystal wine glass and water goblet added a bit of tradition to the table.

A Cheerful Spring Forward Wedding in Georgia at Greenfield Farms


[section title=”The Planning”]
[field title=”Wedding Colors”] One thing Emily knew she wanted for her wedding day was color! As much as she loved the timeless white wedding, she was ready to include lots of vibrance in her wedding day design. She has always been a “pink girl” and luckily Zubin supported her including as much as she wanted. The color palette began with a pairing of pink and blue and evolved into added pops of yellow and orange.[/field]
[field title=”Design / Vibe / Vision”]Emily and Zubin had always dreamed of a Spring garden party vibe – romantic, fun, and full of joy. She wanted the colors, flowers, and decor to be reminiscent of a beautiful Spring day. The couple chose Greenfield Farms wedding venue for its sprawling outdoor spaces. They planned for an outdoor ceremony site as well as a patio cocktail hour to really embrace the garden party vision. And when it was time to bring the party inside, the guests were greeted by lively floral centerpieces and Springy linens.
[/field]
[field title=”Proposal Story”]Zubin proposed on a crisp Fall day. He had told Emily they were meeting his family for lunch at an Italian restaurant in their neighborhood. He convinced Emily they should walk and take a detour through the park since it was such a nice day. In the middle of the park he had flowers and champagne waiting on them. Emily recounts that it was the easiest yes she had ever said. After the proposal they spent the afternoon soaking in all of the joy. They later celebrated at dinner with both of their families and drinks with close friends.

[field title=”Wedding Gown”]Emily knew she wanted something more modern with an interesting detail, whether it be sparkles, lace, applique, etc. When she started dress shopping, she had her mind set on a fitted gown and had tried on over ten of them. She had even narrowed it down to one dress when she happened to mention to a Lovely Bride associate that she wanted to try on Tara Lauren’s Kismet gown. As soon as she had it on and looked in the mirror she knew it was perfect. She loved the corded lace and rose motif. The A line organza gown was romantic but also quite striking with the high slit detail. It felt like the very best balance of modern and fun without being too trendy.
[/field]
[field title=”Bridesmaid Dresses”]Emily asked her bridesmaids to choose a blush or peach, floor length gown in either a solid or pattern. She trusted they would all choose gorgeous gowns and she couldn’t wait for the pop of color it would bring to the ceremony. As each bridesmaid chose her dress, it came together more and more and Emily enjoyed watching her bridesmaids be a part of creating such an important piece of the aesthetic of the day. The final assortment of dresses was stunning!
[/field]
[field title=”Groomsman Attire”]For the groomsmen, Zubin wanted classic fitted black tuxes. Emily wanted him as the groom to stand out from the groomsmen a bit. So, they customized a tux for him with a navy jacket to give him a pop of color against the groomsmen.

[field title=”Food & Drink”]As guests arrived, they were greeted with a glass of champagne. Emily and Zubin wanted them to enjoy the wedding experience from start to finish. After the ceremony, the couple went into cocktail hour with signature cocktails of moscow mules and margaritas. Guests enjoyed District Events Catering passed hors d’oeuvres including goat cheese phyllo triangles, chicken chipotle empanadas, and steak “frites” on a waffle chip. In the reception space, there were preset berry salads and bread baskets at the tables. Dinner was a served buffet with grilled asparagus, roasted potatoes, chicken roulade, and churrasco skirt steak. The couple had a full, open bar all night and at 9pm, they had passed espresso martinis as a special cocktail for their guests.

[/field]
[field title=”Florals & Decor”] The talented Soiree Southern events created a bridal bouquet in a “fresh picked” shape, tied with the fabric of Emily’s bridal gown. It was full of roses, peonies, and ranunculus in the couple’s chosen colors of whites, pinks, yellows, oranges, blues and plenty of greenery. The bridesmaids’ bouquets were more prominently white with pops of color. For the ceremony flowers, there were two pedestals on either side of the aisle with two large, asymmetrical arrangements on the inner pedestals and two smaller arrangements on the outer pedestals. Lush arrangements were also placed on the mantle at cocktail hour and the reception space.
[/field]
[field title=”Wedding Cake”]The cake, by Acuna’s custom cakes, was slightly off-white with light dusty blue palette-knife florals and small white pearls. It was a three-tier cake with the bottom tier being white cake with almond and raspberry icing. The smaller two tiers were chocolate cake with dulce de leche icing. Why choose one flavor when you can have two?!
[/field]
[field title=”Readings, Ceremony Music, Reception Songs”]It was very important to Emily and Zubin that they write their our own vows. They wanted the wedding to feel personal and for all of their guests to understand how important this moment was to them. Hearing each other’s vows was their favorite part of the wedding. To make it even more special, the ceremony was officiated by Emily’s grandfather. It was incredibly special to have him there to marry them.

[field title=”Special Detail #2″]After spending time browsing invitations, Emily wasn’t finding anything that felt quite right. She decided to put her graphic design background to work by designing the invitation suite herself. It was a labor of love that Emily felt so proud to see come to fruition. [/field]

Heartfelt Spring Garden Wedding At Callanwolde Fine Arts Center


[section title=”The Planning”]
[field title=”Wedding Colors”]

Serenity Blue, Lady Blush, Peach, Lilac, Greenery, Vintage Gold Accents

[/field]
[field title=”Design / Vibe / Vision”]

When Maddie asked Karen of Pop + Fizz, “Can we channel Bridgerton vibes?”, she knew exactly what to do. (Read: All of her Netflix “training” prepared her for this moment.) She and her team filled Callanwolde’s iconic circular garden with lush pastel-colored blooms and built a custom-welded gazebo to sit atop the estate table and set the stage for the Reception by bringing the gardens indoors. Guests were welcomed with parasols, hand fans, and harp music floating through the air. It was ethereal and perfectly representative of Spring in Atlanta. Incorporating lots of vibrant tones and sentimental touches. Maddie and Gabe’s love story is a tale of serendipity and international romance. Their paths crossed in London while Maddie was studying abroad in Barcelona and Gabe was backpacking through Europe. Their journey led them to a sweet proposal in Costa Rica and culminated in a stunning Jewish wedding with nods to Gabe’s Mexican heritage. Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, known for its breathtaking beauty, became the backdrop for their wedding. The venue was adorned with vibrant florals for the ceremony and wedding party, creating a lively and joyous atmosphere. The rest of the decor was elegantly styled to incorporate kisses of color intentionally and thoughtfully.

[/field]
[field title=”Proposal Story”]

We met in London while visiting friends. Gabe was backpacking through Europe before his Sophomore year of college and Maddie was studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain for that summer. Both of us had friends that were doing a work-study program in London together and we happened to visit those friends on the same weekend. Our friends had class or work on Saturday and suggested that we hang out for the day. Maddie was not into hanging out with a stranger all day but then she walked into her friend’s flat and saw Gabe for the first time and changed her mind right away haha. On Saturday, we spent the day walking around London, eating street food and getting to know each other. Maddie was immediately smitten and texted her mom that day that she had met someone. In classic Gabe fashion, he was totally oblivious and had no idea Maddie was into him. We both went to school at the University of Florida and when we got back for the fall semester, Maddie made up any excuse to text Gabe. Gabe eventually asked Maddie to go on a date function with him and we’ve been together ever since. We hadn’t been out of the country in over two years because of Covid and had both been dying to go to Costa Rica. Gabe (our official travel agent haha) planned the most amazing trip in January of 2022. One of our stops was to Tulemar Beach and Gabe suggested that we do an early morning breakfast at the beach. Maddie was a little suspicious but went along with it. Turns out that Maddie’s suspicions were right – Gabe proposed that morning on the beach and had a photographer hiding and taking pictures.

[field title=”Design / Vibe / Vision”]When we first met Olivia about design, she came to us with a vision of a retro London Tea Party. We were excited to put together a design with lots of patterns and colors, while still looking timeless.

With her hand drawn custom invitations, guests got a sneak peek of what was to come. By adding special details in the sketch of actual florals that were going to be used, The Ford rice barrel, her puppy and wildlife native to the Savannah area.

Her venue backdrop is gorgeous on its own, so we wanted to make sure to design each space to accented the . Ceremony was designed with wood chairs and a structure at the altar adorned with florals. As guests transitioned to the back for The Ford home, they were greeted with mini cocktails and quaint hor d’oeuvres. With a setting of the Ogeechee river, we played with colors to compliment the outdoor space and let the view be the focal point.

We created her reception with a clear top tent and turf flooring, then added a simple lighting pattern, to be functional yet intentional with design, and brought the outside in with trees and garden inspired florals.

We adored the blue and white patterned linens and leaf patterned napkins. Tables were created with beautiful layers of patterns and texture to bring her vision of an elegant tea party to life.

Her design was accented with intentional details and surprises wherever you looked. From the hand painted candles, to the decal of their puppy Henry to the custom colors of her bars + stage and the matching snake sketch on her cake we wanted her design tailored to her.[/field]
[field title=”Proposal Story”]From the bride, Olivia: We were in Montauk for the weekend for a trip Sean planned for Olivia’s birthday. It was our first trip away since getting our puppy (Henry) and were so excited for a weekend of relaxation and sleeping in. Sean planned a fabulous weekend and went to some of my favorite spots on the island. On Saturday morning, Olivia (I) as usual was up at the crack of dawn so I woke Sean up and we went to the beach for a walk. Once we were at the beach, we were sitting taking in the morning, when Sean turned around and pulled out the most gorgeous ring. He said the most beautiful thing to me and then asked me to be his wife! I couldn’t believe it! [/field]

[section title=”The Fashion”]
[field title=”Wedding Gown”]From bride: I got my dress at the White Dress by the Shore. When I first went shopping, I had a very clear style in mind, but when it came to trying on, I didn’t feel comfortable or like myself in anything I thought I would. Who knew there were so many different types of fabrics! I found the ‘Elliot’ after describing my vision; timeless, silently elegant, and most of all comfortable. I feel in love with the square neckline – a personal style staple – and the mid back versus a very low back. I loved that you could almost dress it up and down depending on the accessories and became a canvas for my coveted headband by Jennifer Behr. Also – my bustle, done by the amazing https://www.demelisatelier.com/ was a combination of a French and Ballgown bustle. Allowing the dress to keep its intended shape on the bottom!
[/field]
[field title=”Bridesmaid Dresses”]From bride: When searching for bridesmaids’ dresses, I wanted something that reflected the design inspiration of the wedding; a 60’s garden party with a splash of French Parisian, and a pop of chinoiserie – and something my girls could and would want to wear again. The V Chapman Lily Dress in sage was the perfect fit! With a feminine and retro ruffle silk details, but a more modern silhouette I feel in love instantly! The sage complimented the colorful and unique flowers and linens. We paired them with the Shashi Botanique Earrings for a flirty but elegant statement piece.

[section title=”The Details”]
[field title=”Food & Drink”]From Bride: We wanted to combine the authentic cuisine of the low country and tie in some of our favorites but remaining on theme. Elegant, bite sized hors d’oeuvres and of course a flirty cocktail for the ladies and a classic for the grooms signature cocktail. Our hanky panky featured edible flowers, and the pink of the paloma popped against backdrop. Henry’s Way was an ode to our pup, and Henry Ford’s home who we so enjoyed![/field]
[field title=”Florals & Decor”]From Florist, Andrea – Olivia’s flowers were a florist’s dream. The best of Spring and definitely not afraid of color. For her bouquet, we incorporated poppies, sweet pea, allium, ranunculus, spirea, and phlox together to create a light and ethereal design. Her bouquet was tied with a floral embroidered ribbon. The bridesmaids carried similar petite bouquets tied with wide lilac colored silk ribbons.

For the ceremony, we made a wooden a-frame backdrop that we adorned with bursts of pastel colored blooms. The entrance to the aisle was designed with similar blooms and felt like the ceremony was nestled amongst a lush garden.
[/field]
[field title=”Wedding Cake”]From Bride: Cake / Talk about some inspiration behind what you wanted for your wedding cake. We wanted our cake to be a vignette of our entire affair, and it was spot on. Elegant, unique, and full of surprises! With the natural elements of the Georgia peaches and flowers varietals from my bouquet, and ceremony, to the rattan riser it was on, it was perfect. Too beautiful to eat. I think one of the first times I cried that day was when I first saw my cake. Not only was it beyond gorgeous, it was incredible. We also did le peite pastries to finish out the evening which was a hit!

Throughout my entire wedding, I left a bunch of easter eggs – which fun when someone realized them. In our invitations, hidden in the design were odes to the low country, Georgia, and some of our favorite things.  My headband was called the Meadow, which is my niece’s name. The bridesmaids earrings were called the Botanique which is a nursery for unique botanicals, which Gray Harper absolutely delivered on. Henry popped up a few times (cake, dance floor etc). The cake also featured the snakes from the paper designs, and the butterflies were throughout the evening!

[/field]
[field title=”Readings, Ceremony Music, Reception Songs”][/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #1″]One of our favorite features was the recessed bar at cocktail hour. We placed vibrant Spring blooms inside this shape to create a true focal point for this portion of the reception. The dancing purple allium flowers made the design feel so playful.[/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #2″]Guests were greeted at the entrance of the tent by billowing baskets of blooms and lush Spring trees. The reception bar featured two dutch master style arrangements with tulips and hyacinths overflowing out of the vase. [/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #3″]There were two different styles of guests tables featured at the reception. An estate table with meadow style arrangements running down the center of the tables, and square tables featuring a lush round arrangement full of blooms. We paid attention to including small details such as the moss colored ribbed taper candles on each table. The pillar candles at the sweetheart table also featured a hexagonal design. Chandeliers and tent poles were even draped in vine-like greenery.

Following the ceremony, the aisle meadow arrangements were repurposed on the stage giving them a whole new life at the reception.

Southern Provencal Garden Wedding With Bunny Mellon Touches

Where do we even begin when it comes to this stunning Savannah affair? Runway-worthy fashion statements, Bunny Mellon inspired design and whimsical floral arrangements filled with allium, sweet pea and antique roses from Blossom Events… these are just a few of the insanely special details you’ll find at the full gallery by Julie Livingston Photography. The darling couple acquired the help of Reagan Events to bring their wedding dreams to reality, and boy did they deliver! To say we’re obsessed is the understatement of the century.

From the bride, Miranda… Having each spent time living in many cities around the country before meeting in Dallas in 2020, Scott and I were lucky to have made such wonderful friends across numerous states who we knew we’d be asking to travel to celebrate our big day. We wanted to pick a destination that would allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy exploring in between our wedding events, so we began our search in Charleston, where I’d always dreamed of a quintessential low country wedding (and thankfully my Milwaukee-raised then future husband agreed). After striking out with available dates at most of our preferred venues, our planner, Reagan of Reagan Events, suggested the perfect “plan B” and ultimately lead us to Savannah and the idyllic Ford Field and River Club—it was love at first sight and we immediately set the date for Memorial Day weekend 2022!

So much of the appeal of Savannah for us was in its eclectic mix of culture, history and of course breathtaking nature! We wanted to fully embrace all of those ideals in the design concept of our whole weekend, so we created a vision board that felt like a southern adaptation of The Secret Garden with a touch of Provençal interior design influence: overgrown florals and abundant greenery, grand garden gates and egret motifs, antique collectibles and silver mixed with rattan and wicker pieces, all under a sailcloth tent! My mom, sister and I all share a forever love of purple flowers, so we special requested allium, sweet pea and antique roses all in purple hues as the standout blooms in our table arrangements. Paired back to sage green as the primary color in our design palate, plus touches of soft peach, dusty rose and periwinkle, our all-star vendor team created a space that truly felt as if you were cocktail-ing, eating and dancing on a warm, candle lit summer night in a garden in full bloom.

One of my favorite aspects of our wedding design process was working with the immensely talented Julie King Studio. She created not only our entire wedding paper suite, but also designed the art work for our band stage backdrop, circular cocktail bar dance floor AND fun takeaways like match books, maps of Savannah and our late-night snack bags. I’ve long loved hand painted wall murals and wallpaper for interiors, so she played off of a few of my favorite saved images to create a unique garden design featuring budding trees, butterflies and an egret that became a fixed little motif across all our wedding designs!

Finding the dress(es) was one of the—thankfully—easiest and most special parts of the planning process. For my gown, I knew I wanted something strapless, column shaped and with a bow on the back, based off an inspiration photo I’d saved nearly a decade ago from an Alber Elbaz-era Lanvin bridal collection. I took my mom and sister to shop with me, and on our second stop of the day, we walked into the Carolina Herrera salon in Dallas and found exactly what I had been hoping for and then some! They graciously made a few tweaks to make the bow fuller and visible from the front, and it was more special (and comfortable!) than I could’ve ever imagined. I initially hadn’t planned to find a second change reception dress, but when an appointment spot opened up at Happy Isles salon in LA, I booked a flight on a whim in hopes of finding something to change my mind! I was elated to find just that in a silver fringe-beaded taupe hued dress that immediately reminded me of a ballgown worn by Audrey Hepburn’s Eliza Doolittle character in the film My Fair Lady. It ended up making for the perfect sparkly party dress!

From the rehearsal dinner to our post-wedding Bloody Mary’s + Biscuits goodbye brunch, our weekend was the biggest blur of pure joy, love and sweet moments we’ll cherish forever surrounded by all of our very favorite people who’ve walked us through so many stages of our lives, separately and together. As our guests moved from cocktail hour to the tent for dinner and dancing on our wedding day, we took a moment to ourselves on the lawn to watch the sun go down and take it all in together. The overwhelming feeling of love and gratitude is something I’ll never forget—for any future brides reading this, take a moment away with your husband to soak in all the happiness. You’ll never remember what goes right or wrong, but you’ll never forget those first few married moments of pure wedding day bliss!

This Couple’s Museum of Natural History Wedding Was Complete with Ring Pops and Dinosaurs

Ready for a roaring good time? Christie and Brian got married at the Fernbank Natural History Museum amongst real dinosaur fossils! Brianne McMullan Events planned the modern romantic day, filled with centerpieces inside acrylic boxes that looked like they could’ve been an exhibit at the museum themselves! Lindsay Coletta brightened the space with bright pops of beautiful flowers, and Laura Watson artfully captured every magical moment.  Fall in love with every chic second inside the full gallery.




From Laura WatsonChristie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Natural History Museum in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals. Their design showcased the romantic colors of the season, but the pair leaned into the museum aesthetic by placing their centerpieces in delicate acrylic boxes as if on display in a gallery.



They also added sparks of their personality throughout. When Brian proposed, he initially used a ring pop, so they made sure their guests could take part in the romance at their reception with a basket full of Ring Pops at the ready.



Christie chose her brother as her “Man of Honor,” and he fashionably rocked the title in a burgundy suit. And if you’re getting married in a dinosaur museum, you must have dinosaurs at the reception, right?

Elevate the Coastal Grandmother Aesthetic With This Feminine Jekyll Island Wedding!

Inspired by the hues of a salt marsh just steps away from the Jekyll Island Club Resort, this native-Georgian bride planned her dream wedding day in pale blues, greens, and neutrals – a feminine take on the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic! Take notes because we can’t stop obsessing over the stand-out details of the day – the black and white dance floor and the oyster shell escort display, handmade by the bride’s father, to name a few. Kati Mallory Photo Design captured this elevated classic to perfection, ‘sea’ for yourself in the full gallery!

Jacqueline and Ryan’s wedding took place in Jekyll Island, Georgia. Just a short drive away from Jacqueline’s hometown of Saint Simon Island, Jekyll Island was the perfect place to have their friends and family gather to celebrate the beginning of their marriage. Miraculously, the couple did not use an official wedding planner and instead designed this stunning affair with Jacqueline’s impeccable taste.

The wedding color palette was inspired by the colors of the salt marsh – pale blues, greens, tans and golds – which is located only steps away from Crane Cottage where the ceremony and reception were held. Guests got to experience sunshine and the breeze coming in from the marsh as Jacqueline & Ryan exchanged vows under the Spanish moss blowing in the trees above.

Their reception, held in the gardens of the cottage, featured a classic black and white dance floor and greenery, along with an escort card wall, designed and built by the bride’s father and showcasing oyster shells, that helped guests find their seats before the plated dinner service began.

Overall it was a beautiful spring day on the Georgia coast!

Floral-Centric Inspiration in Full Bloom at Savannah’s Historic Bellwether House

Refined and timeless with a hint of the ‘unexpected’ was the creative direction for this styled shoot at Savannah’s historic Bellwether House. Allison Event Design expressed the feeling of abundant romance with garden-inspired patterns. From the bride’s hand-painted floral gown and her cascading white rose bouquet by Jardinière Events to the curated tablescape, this real couple’s love story was surrounded by blooms. Watch love blossom in the full gallery, all captured by The Happy Bloom

From Allison Event Design… When dreaming up this photoshoot, I wanted to pull together the ‘unexpected’ elements. Overall, we aimed to curate a look that was abundant and romantic, while also being refined and timeless. We love that couples are opening themselves up to making their day their own and truly about themselves. At Allison Event Design, we love working with couples that enjoy adding in
traditions and details about their love story, to fully bring it to life.

Here we have a gorgeous bride in a hand-painted dress and embroidered veil full of life and color. She is celebrating their love and not afraid to show their closest family and friends her boldness. We’ve paired it with a traditional white and green bouquet, but large and draping to add to the dramatics. Her groom is in a classic tux adding to the elegance and timelessness of the evening. They are happy throughout the photos, laughing and excited for this next chapter of their lives together.

The design tells the story of how their love started simple. The front steps have the added touch of florals but are simply stating that love is starting here at home. In the back courtyard, the table is lush and full. Their love has grown over time through the simple, delicate details and moments. Inspired by some of the most beautiful gardens in the world, we played with a layering of colors, textures and patterns to bring an organic yet refined feel to the tablescape. Bringing the sense of design and intentionality to the shoot was paramount to ensure their blossoming love story was conveyed and consistent, just as we are with all our couples’ stories.

Music is incredibly important to the couple – so they made sure to have musicians at every stop – including a Bagpipe-lead champagne walk between their garden ceremony to their ocean-front cocktail hour. Custom-stamped ice cubes for their drinks and butler-passed hors d’oeuvres greeted guests at cocktail hour. 

They also included their Frenchie – naming the bars with beautiful acrylic signage “Lulu’s Bar” – and featuring his and hers signature drinks (Red Hand for him, and White Linen for her). Every detail was meticulously planned and executed to perfection – and they ended the reception with a firework display before heading to their after-party!

Black and White Wedding Elegance With a Dress That Would Make Carrie Bradshaw Proud

If you’re anything like us, there’s a good chance you’re obsessing over the Sex and The City reboot updates generating some major buzz all over social media at the moment. And after seeing today’s stunning editorial, we couldn’t help but wonder… is this one of the most incredibly chic dress moments we’ve ever seen on SMP?! We’re pretty sure miss Carrie Bradshaw herself would agree that the answer is a resounding yesssEvery fashionista has to see the full gallery of details from this day – brought to life by Greychic Wedding, with floral design by Dinara Almenova and photos from Yulia Galygina!

From Photographer Yulia GalyginaThis wedding shoot was a part of Tamara Gigola Workshop. We were surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Georgia and beautiful Vazisubani Estate. Creating this shoot the organizer GreyChic Wedding drew inspiration from the history of the Vazisubannin estate. Style, elegance and modern trends come together in the actual moment. A simple idea, so close in reality or in dreams, for many of us, in my opinion, will not leave anyone indifferent. 

The photographer Yulia Galygina was able to convey all this in an amazing way through her shots. A large team is working for this, stories, poses, shots, and style are carefully thought out for a long time. And all these stages bring great pleasure, especially when we see the result. In the 1800s, this splendid estate belonged to a renowned nobleman Sulkhan Chavchavadze. A pioneer in winemaking back in the days, Chavchavadze built the estate and vineyards in 1891. His contribution to the cultural and educational development in Georgia, particularly Kakheti, is paramount. With time Chavchavadze’s once-prosperous palace and vineyards deteriorated. 

In 2013 the visionaries behind Vazisubani Estate took it in their hands to revive the derelict estate and transform it into an iconic destination – one rooted in its rich history, uninterrupted winemaking tradition, exceptional cuisine, and outstanding hospitality. With that in mind, the vineyards were replanted and an old wine cellar restored. The palace was renovated and now is a 19 room exquisite boutique hotel. Two looks were chosen for the bride. The first image and dress from the designer Murashka Wedding Atelier is simpler and more concise, emphasizing the modernity and natural beauty of the girl. The second one is bold and with an emphasis on the large voluminous sleeve of the dress from the designer Katya Kutz. The decoration and color scheme of the table was very simple, but quite relevant and modern. Florist Dinara Almenova was able to highlight the elegance and color scheme of the Vazisubanni estate.

This Flower Forward Georgia Wedding Has Love In Full Bloom

This classic and elegant Swan House wedding is sure to stand the test of time. Krissy Campbell worked closely with our couple to design a day that not only dazzles but also shows their deepest appreciation to family and friends for celebrating with them. The invitations and day of stationery were designed and calligraphed by the bride herself, a truly personal touch as the couple wrote each guest an individualized note placed at each seat along with the dinner menu. From the fountain cascading with blooms to the reception covered in an abundance of fabulous flowers, Thorne and Thistle Designs created magic at every turn. You can feel the love bursting out of the artful imagery by Bonphotage. Visit the full gallery to fall in love.



From Krissy CampbellAfter hearing about Ariel and Jordan’s love for nature, travel, history, and architecture, we knew it would be fitting to start with a neutral color palette, keeping in line with their timeless taste. It was also extremely important to them to create original moments, integrate their families, ensure their guests felt personally appreciated, and to find space alone for the two of them that day. All of this gave us a wonderful foundation to work with as we designed the experience alongside them.



We worked with talented floral designer, Thorne and Thistle, to create stunning floral vignettes that flowed naturally throughout each space at the Swan House – from cascading arrangements down the fountain to flowing pops of greens and softly colored florals and candles through cocktails and dinner tables.



As you can see through the beautifully captured photos and video from the Bonphotage team, Ariel and Jordan were incredibly thoughtful as they chose each detail of their celebration from beginning to end. The aesthetic and beauty was only heightened by the intimate moments between them and the intentional touches added for their loved ones.

This Couple’s Savannah Fête Will Charm You with Its Formal Meets Fun Festivities!

Bethany and Jesse’s wedding fête was filled with festivities, endearing touches, and a show-stealing furry ring bearer in Savannah, GA — the city that stole the couple’s hearts! The talents of Design Studio South and Gray Harper Florals’ muted arrangements with pops of burgundy accentuated the natural beauty of the intimate garden where the couple tied the knot. After the ceremony, a soulful, New Orleans-inspired parade kicked off a lively night at the Mansion on Forsyth Park complete with a bourbon and cigar bar. Relive the mesmerizing charm and romance of this formal yet fun celebration in the full gallery, vividly shot by Kati Rosado

From Kati RosadoBethany and Jesse’s destination wedding highlighted the charm and romance of Savannah, Georgia – a location with both family ties and precious vacation memories, like visiting every Christmas, that quickly stole the hearts of this couple. The historic and natural beauty of this city set the most perfect backdrop for this couple to say “I do!”. Although the couple initially planned to have the ceremony at Forsyth Park, a quick pivot was made to a nearby private garden due to COVID restrictions.

The private garden screamed romance with its natural awe and wonder. To make sure we accentuated rather than transform this incredible space, we chose soft colors + patterns with subtle pops of bold burgundy flowers in the Gray Harper Florals’s arrangements to keep the party going. A bold floral design wasn’t all this couple had in mind for a party. This couple celebrated “tying the knot” with a second line band (@Equinoxorchestra), giving off a New Orleans vibe, that led a parade featuring the newlyweds through the streets of Savannah back to Forsyth Park for a final round of celebration at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. We wanted to carry the intimacy from the private garden inside and push the formal romantic vibe through to the reception space while continuing to keep the fun atmosphere which included a bourbon and cigar bar! To accomplish the romantic vibe at the reception, we canvassed the venue with subtle pink linens, plenty of lit candles, gold metals, and deep red/pink tones in the table arrangements.

We valued the intimacy in this COVID restricted, destination wedding and ensured that personal details of the couple were scattered throughout the ceremony. A handmade quilt honored the bride’s mother, and a pot of pansies signified their shared sorority. Every detail in this wedding shared more and more about this darling couple. The star of the show, however, was undoubtedly the couple’s fur baby who appeared dressed to the nines in his very own tux. This sweet pup carried several roles as both the inspiration of a specialty cocktail at the reception and as a featured ring bearer during the ceremony.

The romance and fun felt on the wedding day was enough to carry us to the moon! Despite the challenges faced planning a wedding during COVID, Bethany and Jesse made sure every touch remained intimate, personal, and full of vibrant celebration. We were thrilled to partner beside them to make sure the whole show went down without a hitch and fulfilled their wildest destination dreams!
