Today’s sweet, vintage-inspired Tennessee wedding from Jessie Holloway Photography has us swooning. The bride wore a beautifully ruffled wedding gown, and her bridesmaids dressed in pale pink. Sara’s new husband wore a pink bow tie, and their first look together is the stuff of southern magic. We especially love Sara’s golden ballet flats. This gorgeous pink wedding has us blissfully inspired today, y’all.
This wedding has our heart today, y’all. From the bride’s lace veil, the vintage bottles filled with baby’s breath, the flower girls dressed in blush pink… from the cross adorned with flowers at their outdoor wedding altar, to the love letter details infused into every aspect of their wedding day, like their cake and the handmade paper decorations at their reception.
A little bit vintage, the entire shabby chic wedding was captured by Melissa Marie photography, one of our preferred North Carolina photographers. From their first look to their first dance to their sparkling getaway, every moment of this North Carolina wedding was pure love and sweetness, and we’re adoring every photo.
A Sapelo Island destination wedding was just what Lindsey and Blake were looking for. Once college sweethearts at Savannah College of Art and Design, the bride and groom celebrated with a wedding weekend with friends and family. Blake even baked the wedding cake as a gift to his new wife. Their ceremony beneath the oaks and Spanish moss is just precious.
Happy Monday, y’all! Have you ever really wanted something, only to be blessed with something that turned out to be far more awesome? That’s how we felt about this sweet Savannah wedding from Paperlily Photography. As soon as we spotted their work, we knew it had to be featured on The Lovely Find. “Is this wedding available?” we asked. “Not that one,” they said, “but we’ve sent something else we think you’ll like!” More like freak-0ut-and-love-it. It’s just pastel perfection!
From Paperlily Photography: “Ryan & Jessica met while they were serving in the military together…They had to keep their romance very hush hush because of protocol, which made it difficult at times, but also super romantic. Jessica had finished her tour and the couple finally got engaged, but Ryan still had a year left. So the long distance relationship continued, while Jessica made the wedding plans. Being from North Carolina, she knew that it would be a Southern affair, and Savannah was the perfect backdrop. Jessica and her mom were very hands on with the planning and decor, scouring every thrift store and antique shop for all of the vintage china and doilies used for the place settings. Other Southern elements were the ceremony on the Savannah River, a choir singing “Oh Happy Day” during the recessional, the sweet shoppe favors, pastel color palette for decor and bridal party, mason jar cocktails, and their exit by bicycle. Jessica’s grandfather presided over the ceremony, and as a memorial to her father, Jessica had doves released in the beginning of the ceremony…”
Skeleton keys, blue silk ribbons, paper flowers and handmade bouquets set the tone for this vintage-inspired Florida wedding. Although time intensive, the look of handmade paper flowers is just lovely, especially if you’re a DIY bride at heart.
“David and I met in the summer of 2005 at a prayer meeting at church. I have never met someone I could trust so dearly and that loves me for who I am–the good, the bad, the ugly. I had always wanted to have something unique about my wedding that was eye catching and memorable. That’s what led me to the idea of making paper flowers instead of using real ones. I spent hours upon hours, even months working on them. I made every flower used in my wedding (minus the eight white roses in my bouquet and the baby’s breath for a filler). The paper I used to make the roses also helped bring out the vintage feel I was going for at the reception. I was so happy with how everything turned out. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
