Benjamin and Alexandra’s southern wedding in Arkansas called upon a marigold and pewter color scheme, flowers picked from local gardens, and a sense of family. They were absolutely able to pull together a stunning handmade wedding that included vintage heirlooms, lawn party games, and colorful DIY accents. Hand fans and vintage handkerchiefs were presented to guests to combat the potential heat of the outdoor wedding, while edible candy buttons decorated their wedding cake at the reception. And as a reminder of their dating days, favors of individually wrapped Life Savers were present for guests to take home with them.
From Stevie Ramos Photography: “Greg and Laura had a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony including the signing of the katubah. Their close family and friends did the 7 blessings over them during the family ceremony. Laura’s father is Indian, and she traveled to Indian to purchase a traditional Indian wedding gown for the reception.” Congratulations, Greg and Laura!
This Alabama southern wedding by Chanterelle Photography is the bee’s knees, y’all. From her ethereal wedding veil to the beautifully classic bouquet of white blooms she carried, we’re kind of in love with Courtney and Greg’s traditional Fountainview Mansion wedding day. The calligraphy on their invites, the tall centerpieces of hydrangea and white rose, and the “something blue” that wrapped around Courtney’s bouquet are just the beginning of all the southern goodness.
From Sally Watts Photo: “Kellie and Russ live in Charlotte, and planned a destination wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. Kellie is Southern and Russ is from England, so the RiverOaks venue was perfect for them. It’s a blend of Lowcountry waterfront hospitality and English cottage charm.
The event had a distinct casual Charleston vibe, but with opulent touches, such as varied real china place settings. The outdoor atmosphere after dark was reminiscent of a Gatsby era lawn party. The dessert and coffee service area was another nod to the couple’s heritage, with southern and British delicacies.” Congratulations, Kellie and Russ!
We hare in love with the military wedding goodness Rachael Foster Photography was able to capture in Virginia. The bride and groom combined traditional wedding elements with family heirlooms — a garter made by the bride’s mama, a family locket, and photos of both families. The groom’s cake was an ode to his military career, and the gorgeous stained glass windows of the church where they wed happened to be the childhood church of the bride!
