Aubrie and Trae’s love story started in middle school, took them to college in New Orleans, and despite celebrating their marriage with an Atlanta wedding, they found ways to incorporate details inspired by their time in Louisiana as well as their own personal style and cultural roots.

Long garlands of greenery were mixed with magnolia leaves as a nod to Louisiana’s state flower, the magnolia, while other tables were adorned with linens featuring an architectural pattern inspired by the cast iron gates and balconies of creole homes. The menu for the day was full of savory Southern dishes, and specialty cocktails of French 75s and Southern Mules were made with the venue’s own American Spirit Whiskey. Every detail- the design, the menu, the naming of tables, even the photobooth, carried subtle nods to the place that Aubrie and Trae’s love continued to blossom.

This couple’s wedding day was not only beautiful, but carried so much personality, and truly allowed their guests to celebrate the journey of their love story. Rustic White Photography captured not only the love and emotion, but also this story in the most perfect way.

Did you catch some of the special details that gave guests a peak into their story? We love the simple elegance that they created in this industrial blank space, and they really made it their own. We also can’t get enough of the incredible feature that their bars created complete with the large custom chalkboards and hanging arrangements. They are definitely eye catchers!

Bob and Teresa’s backyard wedding was held at Bob’s parents’ house, nestled along the Indian River on Florida’s east coast. The simple vintage style was highlighted throughout the design of the day, from the bride’s bouquet mixing lavender and a collection of beautiful brooches, to vintage furniture and the history of love behind their “family tree.” They collected twigs and vines from a hurricane that hit their area just a couple weeks before their wedding day, and created wreaths to add to their decor.

The attention to detail in their design created the perfect classic vintage style, and Lisa Marshall Photography captured so much beauty and joy as they celebrated their day. Seriously, it is hard to find a photo of this bride and groom where their smiles aren’t stretching from ear to ear, and we’re so excited to start our week off sharing their day with you!

We just love this couple’s sweet Southern vintage style and fun details they incorporated into their day. The fun bar setup, the clever “family tree,” and the oreo “cake” are definitely some of our favorites in their design, and we love how their personality and simple style really shined through in every detail of their day.

With handmade personal details and rustic style, this Virginia wedding has a special, intimate feel that highlights the incredible joy of this couple. From the green watercolor washed stationery pieces to the incredible paper flower wall, the custom touches that Chelsea and Henry created not only added great design elements, but also made their day highly personalized. The two were very intentional with the team of vendors they chose to work with, and Ashley Glasco Photography did a beautiful job in capturing the emotion of their day.

We are absolutely in love with the ceremony space at the Historic Pole Green Church, and love the unique feel of this outdoor wedding space that has the illusion of a small church- it gives this space a different look that lends itself to a simple and understated design that is full of character. We think you’ll love this fun feature in their wedding day style.

Chelsea has given us some great insight into her and Henry’s wedding day, and we’re thrilled to share with you today. Her final words of advice are serious musts for future brides!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

I used The Knot app as a general timeline to keep track of when I should be completing certain tasks — it definitely helped spread the “to do” list out. Since we did so many of the details ourselves (all the paper products, table centerpieces, flower wall, etc.) it was really helpful for me to share a Google Doc with our wedding planner where I wrote a short description of how everything was put together and where, including sample images. It made me feel confident that our overall aesthetic would be achieved on the big day without anyone having to stress about what went where. My mom was definitely the biggest help keeping me on track and helping me realize all the details; she is definitely the major reason the flower wall was completed on time!

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

We tried to work with vendors who were excited and confident about their approach to the wedding and who had an aesthetic that matched our own. I think this helped make the wedding cohesive and laid-back and we really trusted all the vendors to add their own personal little touches.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?  

We were going for a modern, simplistic Rivendell.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Truthfully, my favorite part was finally getting to say “I Do” to my husband, but it was amazing to get to celebrate that moment with our family and friends all together in one place!

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Practical advice: spread your “to do” list out so you’re not overwhelmed at the last minute, and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you’re uncertain how to go about something. Relationship advice: remember that your fiancé is your forever partner and is there to support and help you — Henry was integral to helping me destress and was a massive help finding vendors! Day-of advice: cherish every minute, the day isn’t long enough and there are more sweet memories being made than you can count!

Jordan and Ben’s country club wedding was full of garden elegance with soft cream, pink, and succulent arrangements accented by touches of birch and wood slices providing subtle rustic touches. The soft color palette and simple, yet elegant design truly allowed the beauty of the day shine.

They created such beautifully cohesive style that carried throughout their wedding day, and Erin Stubblefield Weddings and Portraiture captured their details in the most perfect way. We love the texture that the succulents add to the bride and bridesmaid bouquets, and the centerpieces add a creative twist to this elegant, rustic style. The birch containers filled with large blooms and the silver candelabras dripping with eucalyptus are some of our favorite elements from their design.

We love the beauty of Jordan’s dress and how she transformed a strapless gown into something a little more classic and timeless by adding the lace topper which created beautiful sleeves that sat just off her shoulders. This is definitely a great way to add a personalized twist to your gown, and it is a perfect way to create a custom look for your wedding style.

Thank you Jordan and Ben for sharing your joyous celebration with us!
