Southern Blues and Marigold Wedding Inspiration!

I am excited to finally share more of this gorgeous wedding inspiration shoot we did last summer!  It was published last week on Whimsically Wed!  Be sure to go check out the feature!


It was such a treat to work with The Coordination Company and Wisteria Designs to create this amazing day!  When brainstorming the perfect Southern wedding, we knew we had to include a monogram!  Simply Jessica Marie made us this gorgeous custom crest monogram that really inspired the rest of the day.  We drew inspiration from her design and echoed it in the details of the day.  From displaying the crest on the getaway car and beer bicycle to placing it on the menu cards and invitation suite.  The crest gave us the perfect jumping-off point for design and pulled everything together cohesively.Lowndes Grove is such a gorgeous venue that really brings black-tie vibes to any wedding.  We wanted to stay true to that but do a navy tuxedo!  The bridesmaids were adorned in varying shades of blue that paired perfectly with the gorgeous gown our bride wore!  We also paired a gorgeous veil with pearl accents in the bridal look- because what’s a southern wedding without pearls? The intimate Ceremony design was a highlight of the day for me!   The waterfront house is such a classic design that it just made to have it be the focal point for the ceremony.  Wisteria Designs made a gorgeous aisle of florals that complimented the arched windows perfectly!  It was a showstopper for sure!
