We have one word for this Smithfield Plantation wedding from Katie Estes Photography: adore. From their adorable pup to the bride’s lace wedding gown and the colorful leaves, this southern wedding is just beautiful. Autumn leaves adorned their wedding cake, the bridesmaids wore olive green, and everything is just lovely.
From Katie Estes Photography: “Christine and Michael’s wedding was full of charm! The bride got ready at her parents’ house, which was nestled up in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. After the groom arrived and we had taken several sweet photographs on the family land, the wedding party moved to the Smithfield Plantation Pavilion for the ceremony. The fall leaves were in full color, providing a beautiful backdrop. The reception, held at VCOM II at Virginia Tech, was also full of southern charm with corncake placeholders, pulled pork, and sweet tea. Did I mention that the bride was super crafty? She made her own veil, invitations, bouquets for the wedding party, AND the homemade limoncello favors!” Congratulations, Christine and Michael!
From Anna Routh Photography: “Ross and Elise are proud Texans. When planning their wedding, the most important thing, besides throwing a killer party for their friends and family, was wearing their boots and dancing the night away. Elise and Ross got married in the same church as Elise’s parents in downtown Fort Worth, and the reception that followed was a true ranch affair, complete with barbecue, country music and s’mores! Friends and family enjoyed delicious eats under the stars on this fall evening and danced away to local favorite, Josh Weathers Band.” Congratulations, Ross and Elise!
Classic romance from Mariée Ami Wedding Planning Studio is making our hearts aflutter this afternoon. The bride wore a chic and simple wedding gown and carried a bouquet of creamy white, silvery and blue blooms. The ceremony took place on picturesque Lake Martin in Alabama, followed by a traditional and beautiful reception. Rose petals followed the bride and groom’s happy getaway.
From Erin Lindsey Images: “Gary and Chyna are a sweet, fun couple from Alabama who are never short on smiles. They got married at the breathtaking Huntsville Botanical Gardens on a beautiful day in September. Their Southern roots showed through their use of mason jars, burlap table cloths, and authentic cowboy (and cowgirl) boots they wore on their wedding day. Chyna loves classic flower bouquets, but decided that she wanted something that she could keep forever. She chose a stunning, unique bouquet made completely out of brooches. Their “cake” was actually tiny cake shooters arranged in tiers on a custom made wooden frame. Their cake topper, which was the cake topper used for many generations in Chyna’s family’s, was set beside the cake shooter display.” Congratulations, Gary and Chyna!
Courtney and Nehemiah’s romantic Louisiana wedding is a sweet reminder of everything we love about the country. Rustic wooden wedding signs, cowgirl boots, bunches of baby’s breath and a backless lace gown… Haven’t y’all heard that phrase about never taking the country out of the gal? The bridesmaids wore lace and unique turquoise jewelry; the groom wore a cowboy hat and his boots, too. We love how unique this wedding is, and it proves our point that love looks beautiful in more ways and styles than one.
