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 Carrie Joy Photography: “The whole session was fun and youthful, which I loved. They incorporated a lot of really fun props as well – including multi-colored balloons and a green vintage bicyle (which they both rode down an old country road near Kennesaw Mountain National Park).”
I am so thrilled by trash the dress/day after sessions. You spent all that money on your wedding dress! Wear it again! Take photographs in it again! Enjoy it! You don’t have to be quite as adventurous as this couple if you don’t want to be, but they are awfully enjoyable to view!
The lovely finds: overflowing baskets of fresh and colorful produce, a farmer’s market theme, a short and country chic wedding dress, big and beautiful sunflowers, a trio of cheery bridesmaids, and three fun food trailers to keep guests from going hungry instead of a traditional plated dinner!
