Playful Georgia Farm Wedding: Missy + Sten

bride and groom

The design aspects of Missy + Sten’s playful farm wedding were inspired by the rustic surroundings of their Georgia venue, Vinewood Plantation, as well as their love of all things vintage! They knew they wanted to incorporate some seemingly common + stereotypical wedding details, like parasols, pinwheels + cowboy boots, but pair them with more unique + eclectic elements to give the environment a ton of personality. I’m super in love with the pretty, bright bouquets by Jennifer Hopkins and all of the sweet, antique furniture pieces + decorative elements that were incorporated into the design. So many lovely details to inspire those of you who are planning a day with a fun vintage vibe!

Big thanks to Matt Miller at Our Labor of Love for the super pretty photography and congrats to Missy + Sten!

One of the ways Missy + Sten put a twist on the traditional was by hanging paper parasols, in various shades + sizes, upside down over the head table. The end result is a totally playful + eclectic look, and a super easy DIY that has a lot of impact!

Surround yourself with good people that want the best for you. A support system is worth more than gold! Take it one task at a time, and try not to get too overwhelmed with the planning. Enjoy your big day, and try to take it all in because it goes by so fast! Also, focus on finding great wedding planners, a great dj, and great photographer - we did and it made all the difference in the months leading up to the event, the actual wedding, and the photos we have to cherish all of our special memories!

Free-Spirited Fall Vow Renewal

anniversary shoot

With tomorrow being Thanksgiving, what better way to get in the holiday spirit than with a super lovely fall vow renewal, brimming with pretty ideas for fall brides or last minute holiday decor! Captured by Frenzel Studios, this editorial is full of fun, homespun details that would be easy to recreate for your own celebration. Think birch branch wreaths repurposed as plate chargers and lovely pinecone-filled cloche dome centerpieces, just to name a few! And I’m totally smitten with the lovely fall-inspired floral design, which incorporates some unexpected elements like cotton seed pods + pheasant feathers. Here’s a bit more from Jessica + Luke, who celebrated their first anniversary right around the time of the shoot:

Our shoot was a cool opportunity for me to think about my wedding with a different theme and atmosphere, utilizing the gorgeous property at Cedarwood. We created a beautifully romantic, autumnal and intimate setting in the wild grasses of the nature preserve; it felt like we had run away in late October to elope in a secluded, grassy field in the Irish countryside!  Luke and I had so much fun feeling like newlyweds again and will treasure these memories and photos forever.
