Jackie + Grant had the most beautiful Southern wedding this past January at Summerour :: one of the most beautiful venues right in the heart of Atlanta (although it feels a world away). Soft and vintage with lots of adorable little details, their day was a perfect reflection of the sweet couple they are. And isn’t Jackie just so pretty? We have been lucky to have her helping us out here lately, too! Thank you to Paper Antler for capturing these sweet moments so beautifully. Enjoy!

Jessica + Jason’s wedding at JCT Kitchen was so special and intimate. A focus on good food and good times, and a reflection of the city they met and fell in love in. JCT Kitchen oozes with southern charm, also echoed through every detail of their wedding, all beautifully captured by Kate Belle. Their flowers were designed and created by our very own Maria. Her soft + natural palette was made of all kinds of pretty blooms, including dusty miller, peonies, succulents, and ranunculus. Take a look, and we hope you enjoy!
This wedding is featured today on Style Me Pretty! Be sure to check out their post for even more images from this charming wedding.

It’s always such a pleasure working on shoots for Atlanta Weddings Magazine. Especially when it’s with some of our very favorite folks. This one is a love story taking place in one of the most romantic cities in Georgia. The idea is almost a peek into a couple’s destination wedding weekend in Savannah. We follow them antiquing at Alex Raskins, rickshaw riding in front of The Pink House, enjoying a cafe au lait at Paris Market, and dancing on River Street with a jazz band. Savannah is such a sleepy and sentimental town, rich with history, and the perfect backdrop for a getaway with your beloved.

And a big thank you to Atlanta Weddings for always inviting us along for the ride. And this pretty behind the scenes video by Whitney Tomasino ::
So excited to have this shoot featured today on 100 Layer Cake!
This wedding is quite a treat for us to share with you. Leslie is my cousin, so aside from the obviously gorgeous images from Heidi Geldhauser, this wedding was extra special to work on. I finally got to share the gorgeous, vast cornfields of Illinois I talk so fondly about with Amy, Meredith, Heidi, and Christian. It really was so special, and I’m thankful to have all of these awesome people I get to work with and call friends.
Leslie + Lloyd got married on Leslie’s family farm in rural Illinois in true Americana style on Fourth of July weekend. A combination of flowers shipped in (like the pretty peonies and ranunculus) mixed with local wildflowers picked on and around the farm created an effortless, yet elegant feel. Amy’s chuppah was gorgeous, located where two of the cornfields meet behind the house. Guests enjoyed the Jewish/Christian ceremony seated on haybales circling around the couple. Oh, and I should mention that my cousin Reed drove Leslie to the aisle in an antique Model T that he and my late uncle restored together. We arrived to the farm to a treasure trove of antique vessels my aunt has collected over the years, which we used for most of the reception flowers. All of the tables were covered in an assortment of her pretty vintage linens and china pieces. Tons of handmade details (a handpainted flag, papercut table numbers and matching escort cards, wood road signs…), and a big thanks to our intern Meredith for all of her help getting it all done. We battled tons of bugs and crazy heat, but in the end you would be none the wiser when seeing these gorgeous images Heidi took. The story begins with a “fun on the farm day,” complete with pig races (so cute!), a petting zoo, skeet shooting… you name it. And ends with a big grand fireworks finale. Hope you enjoy!
Elizabeth + Brannard got married on a pretty, sunny day at King Plow Arts Center. Flowers in lovely yellows, whites, and greens, and tons of candlelight lit up the space. Elizabeth is the sister of Amy’s good friend Anne, whose wedding you may remember seeing on our blog earlier this year! We were so excited to be a part of her big day, and just adore Anne and the rest of her family. Lovely photos by Caroline Petters, catering by Bold American, paper goods by Erica Loesing. Enjoy!
Congratulations Elizabeth + Brannard! Wishing you lots and lots of love and happiness…
We are overjoyed to finally be sharing Jeni + Justin’s special wedding at Hawkesdene House with you. You may have seen it featured on Martha Stewart Weddings and The Bride’s Guide over the last few months. [No one can seem to get over how cute the paint by number was!] Martha even featured Handsome the pug once again on her blog. It was just such a beautiful wedding with so many thoughtful details, held last fall in perfect autumn weather. The ceremony not only celebrated the love of Jeni and Justin but also incorporated Jeni’s daughter Emma, escorted down the aisle by Handsome the pug. Thanks to Jeannine Kennedy of Honeysuckle Wedding Company for coordinating all of the details, and beautiful photos by Alan Friedman. Stay tuned on Thursday for their Rehearsal Dinner fiesta!
Congratulations Jeni + Justin! We wish you lots of happiness and love.
Lauren + Josh were married at the gorgeous Farm at Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, North Carolina. Such a treat for us to spend a weekend in such a beautiful place! There are so many pretty spots on the property, it is the perfect wedding getaway. Lauren had a beautiful vision of flowers in pretty neutrals :: whites, pale yellows, and greens, with a woodsy, romantic look and feel. And the rain let up at all the perfect moments to allow the perfect weather day. Thank you to Tina Rowden Photographers for these beautiful images and Elizabeth Fletcher of I Do Events for doing such a fantastic job bringing everything together. Wishing you lots and lots of happiness Lauren + Josh!
Tracey + Brian’s gorgeous Georgian Terrace wedding was a true pleasure to work on from start to finish. A real labor of love. Tracey and her mom Karen quickly became friends as we coordinated for months leading up to the wedding making sure every detail was just right. With all of our powers combined we worked on everything for their wedding from invitations to flowers, and lots of little things in between. Carla Gates so beautifully captured the details, from the hair + makeup artistry of our good friend Raney O’Keefe to the invitations designed by Erica. Spring weddings have to be one of our favorites – just take a look at this color palette. Pretty sherbet tones, flowering branch. Yum! Thank you so much Tracey + Brian for letting us be a part of your big day! Congratulations Tracey + Brian!

We are so excited to finally share Casey + Paul’s gorgeous wedding at the Stables at Lake Martin. We couldn’t have been more thrilled with every little detail of this wedding, all captured by the amazing Simply Bloom. We’re always so excited to work with them, obviously! These images are just stunning.
The Stables at Russell Crossroads are the most beautiful horse stables you’ve ever laid eyes on. So gorgeous. Exposed wood all around, world class horses, and a major attention to detail down to every last window latch. On this night in particular it looked simply magical :: a mix of rustic and elegant, a touch of glitter, and sparkling candlelight all around. We created a fabric chandelier to hang in the center of the space that glowed as everyone danced and enjoyed the evening. Casey’s dad made all of the farm tables by hand using wood from her grandfather’s barn.
A special thanks to Ms. Linda, who was so kind, helpful, and forgiving. She let us work through the night hanging all 750 feet (!!) of muslin fringe down the length of the stables (and getting lots of threads all over the floor). And kept us laughing as we then took it all back down again. Also a huge thanks to all of our helping hands who made all of that fringe possible! Don’t know what we would have done without all of you! Lastly, a special thanks to the Stelling family for letting us make a weekend out of it staying at their lake house. AND Ginny for coming along to help us out. Wow, we’re pretty lucky.
Now for the gorgeous images! Beginning with a sweet painting (one in a series) Paul created to propose to his love ::Congratulations Casey + Paul! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your beautiful day!

Lovely Courtney had such a gorgeous vision for her wedding day. She wanted the whole ballroom at the Cherokee Town Club to feel like a garden. Whimsical, light, and airy. One of our favorite color palettes, and always so fun to incorporate fruits and pretty, flowering branches. To see more beautiful photos from Courtney + Andy’s big day, visit David Shirk’s blog. Congratulations Courtney + Andy! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your beautiful wedding.
And we were so excited to have some of Courtney’s flowers featured in the Fall/Winter 2011 issue of Brides Atlanta!
Jen was just so sweet. We met her back in her SCAD days, and kept the friendship ever since. She had the loveliest vision for her wedding, and she was sweet enough to give us so much creative freedom. We all agree that her chuppah was one of our favorites. Congratulations Jen + Matt!!
Ohhhh Kelly + Drew. One of the sweetest couples we have had the pleasure of working with, whose love for one another rubs off on everyone around them. (You may remember seeing their adorable engagement shoot here!) From the moment we met it was a match made in heaven. Kelly was one of those dream clients who trusted us completely. For that we are always grateful. Bold chevrons, sherbet gradients (the table linens, the bridesmaids dresses, table numbers!), huge balloons … we had such a ball! Scott Chester was there to capture all of the gorgeous details, all of which were coordinated by Ashley Baber. The one and only Sun in My Belly catered. Cator Woolford Gardens was just glowing. Congratulations Kelly + Drew! We wish you all the best…

This was by far a highlight for us last year. To get to work with the one and only Jose Villa was an absolute pleasure we had long been awaiting. Not only is he incredibly talented but also so incredibly humble and kind. We had a lovely weekend at the beautiful Serenbe, packed to the brim with gorgeous details and lovely ladies. Joy + Emily did a fabulous job bringing this shoot to life, right down to the very smallest details.
Thank you Jose for the breathtaking images, to Joy + Emily for inviting us to be a part of this workshop, to Ginny Branch for her positive attitude and helping hands. This was also where we first met Meagan, who later designed our website!
First up :: summer countryside :: Love this! Joy envisioned this arch that Ginny and Erica spent days creating. Despite the heat and crazy bugs (gross!), this beautiful piece became a permanent Serenbe fixture. white and deep indigo wedding (at Dunaway Gardens – beautiful!) :: (This may look familiar from the current cover of Southern Weddings Magazine!) Check out even more images from this weekend on Once Wed here, here, and here! Click here to read more about the Once Wed Workshop for Wedding Photographers.

So excited to share this wedding with you. *Seriously* a gorgeous wedding, chock full of cute details. Thanks to all of the beautiful images from Gina Zeidler, it was nearly impossible to pare them down to include only what you see below! And if you haven’t already, go pick up your copy of the current Southern Weddings Magazine to see lots, lots more.
When Camille asked us to be a part of her wedding I was so touched. I mean, she is an incredible photographer (see more of her gorgeous work here). She is so sweet and was also kind enough to photograph my son’s birthday party last year. From the moment she started to describe her vision and inspiration, we just knew. We always love the opportunity to use all of these fun colors of flowers! And not only did we do the flowers, but Erica designed and handmade the most amazing invitations you have ever seen… and not to mention the yard games signs, placecards, cutout cake sign… Yes, she is extremely talented!
Every little detail. Just gorgeous! Surrounded by only a handful of their closest family, Camille + Mark had a beautiful, intimate wedding at Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, North Carolina (they even had the farm table made to just the right size to perfectly fit their family).
Hope you enjoy!
Congratulations Camille + Mark! We wish you lots of happy moments to come…
A big shout out to the lovely Ginny Branch for all of her help with this wedding. We’re some lucky gals to not only share a studio space with her but also to call her a friend.

Michelle and Shahar. What a beautiful wedding to kick off our new blog! Michelle came to us with such adoration and beautiful ideas. We were so thrilled to do her wedding at the always-inspiring Serenbe on a beautiful summer night. And we always love doing a wedding where we love all of the other vendors :: as always, Heidi blew us away with the yummy photos. She never ceases to amaze us. Sun in My Belly, Smilebooth (you can see those images here), DJ Mike Zarin, and Wages Films (see their wedding video here!), all collaborated to make their day truly memorable. This just turned out to be such a pretty wedding and we are thrilled to show you. Oh! And would you just look at how gorgeous Michelle’s BHLDN dress is!? Lovely, lovely, lovely…
Andrea & Thad are the most adorable couple, and I had soooooo much fun bringing their vision to life at one of my favorite venues. I knew as soon as we started talking about hanging floral installations, combined with the crafting genius of Ashley Meaders, that this was going to be one awesome wedding! Many thanks to Our Labor of Love for capturing all the details so beautifully, and to Bold American for providing the catering. Even the Smilebooth was there! Seriously, I am so honored to be able to work with these amazing vendors.
