From Emily March Photography: “Lindsay and Drew’s wedding was one of my favorites from this summer – even with the Georgia heat! Such a beautiful and sweet pair. Their wedding was perfectly intimate, and I was so blessed to have been a part of each sweet moment. I was fighting tears when Lindsay’s dad saw her for the first time! Their day was filled with family and friends, and it was clear that they wanted everyone to be a part of their commitment to love and cherish one another. Many of their details, like the lavender and flowers, also had a French Provencial feel, since Lindsay speaks French. But true to their Southern backgrounds (Georgia and Louisiana), they had sweet tea at the ceremony and Blue Moon at the reception.” How could we resist a Georgia wedding sweet as all of that? Congratulations, Lindsay and Drew!
When you see as many weddings as we do, it’s sometimes easy to stop referring to a wedding as “unique” or “inspiring.” We love weddings so much that we could likely see the same things again and again and still be totally, utterly inspired… even the trends we see repeated from season to season still make us have happy butterflies. But when this wedding from Jessica Rayborn Photography landed on my desk, I was a little bit awed. Here was a wedding that was cool and chic and atypical of my usual loves! From the jeweled color scheme to the bride’s gorgeous Winnie Couture gown, today’s wedding at the Atlanta Botanical Garden has us a little blown away. The details are unique and different, and we adore that it’s still so very southern.
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!
This sweet North Carolina wedding is colored in shades of white, pink, peach, and coral. Aaron and Nicole’s wedding day was an obvious celebration of love, laughter, and family, and we love every photo captured by Robin Lin Photography. Bridesmaids carried delicate parasols and bouquets of white blooms, and their wedding cake was decorated with ruffles and metallic gold accents. We love that each bridesmaid wore a unique dress!
Katie Estes Photography of Blacksburg, Virginia sent us this sweet wedding that has a little bit of Russian culture added in for good measure! As part of the bride’s wedding tradition, the groom carried her over the venue’s garden bridge. The wedding was intimate and handmade, with the bride’s mother arranging the bouquets and much of the decor. The lovely newlyweds served pecan pie instead of wedding cake, and their wedding favors were Pop Rocks! Don’t you just love this couple already?
