Charming Southern Wedding

May 11, 2017

All White Wedding Decor Inspiration

Ashley chose a timeless combination of neutral tones and natural elements to epitomize Southern charm and sensibility for her marriage to Coleman. The result -- at both the ceremony and the reception -- was timeless and beautiful! 

A Day of Lace and Flowers

The pair exchanged vows in a simple sanctuary adorned only with greyed urns filled with pale blooms. The bride's scheme was wisely curated to include only those elements that added to the joy of the day.

Understated and Elegant

Classic brick, white columns and period architectural detail form a perfect backdrop for this bride and groom, who chose lace and black & traditional black and white formal wear for their special day.

Subtle Sophistication

Wedding Party in Front of Church

Softly draped fabric, with just a hint of sparkle, of attendants' gowns perfectly complements the gentlemanly tuxedoes of the groomsmen, and both are deftly chosen for the site and the occasion.

Gracious Garden Style

Floral displays combining pink peonies, pink garden roses and white hydrangeas form the backbone of this indoor garden party reception. They seem to transport guests back to times past, to a place of sweeping lawns and afternoons filled with dreams. Tall glass vases and smaller rustic urns alternate on the banquet tables to add distinct appeal but never overpower. 


Dreamily Romantic

The juxtaposition of woven homespun and polished marble, of old and new, of minimal decoration and abundant blooms, of simple white and neutral tones and elegant fabrics and typography -- that's what lifts this wedding out of the ordinary! 

White, Beige and Grey

Romantic Wedding Decor and Inspiration

With an aura as light as a cloud of meringue, the reception setting is anything but dull. Instead it shines and provokes delight  -- exactly as it should. Table linen is simply styled, all in barely-there tones that blend with the room's neutral background. The barely there black chairs simply add another dimension of "the way things ought to be." The cake table is perfectly topped off with the cameo sequin linen. Giving it the right amount of glitter and shine to draw your eye in that direction.

Sparkling and Delicious

Ashley and Coleman's gorgeous four-tier wedding cake, highlighted by its own cascading floral display, invites oohs and aahs on a table dressed in sparkling golden glitter. Champagne flutes stand ready for the traditional toast!

Painterly Expression

A portable painters box and easel provide another nod to Southern garden party ambience. Looking at the uncompleted painting, you can almost hear the Southern-accented expressions of good wishes emanating from the lips of the well-dressed guests, can't you?
