Southern Plantation Wedding

IMG_9810.jpg

Being able to work at such uniquely southern venues has been an unexpected perk of this job. I grew up in southern California so every time we roll up to a traditional plantation home, I get all googly-eyed at the sight of it.

Quinney Oaks Plantation didn’t need much as far as floral accents go. It was cleanly overgrown with English ivy and Spanish moss hung from the grandiose oak trees. Our bride was all about textural elements so we focused on bringing those into the bouquets and simple bud vase centerpieces using thistle, brunia berries, and Queen Anne’s lace.

The highlight for me, design-wise, was a massive pergola that the bride and groom were married on. Y’all (I can say that now, right??), we used a total of 32 feet of garland on that baby! Shoutout to my work husband/real husband that climbed atop and was perched like a freakin’ gargoyle tying it to the border, while my mom and I alternated holding my little one as it was drizzling on and off most of the morning (because why wouldn’t it be?).

The end result was a beautifully modern take on a traditional wedding scene. Scroll through to see the work we put in on this one.

"Something Blue" Styled Shoot

KG1A8367.jpg

My-oh-my, I am in love with how this turned out. I mean, you can't really go wrong with a beautiful venue, well-chosen decor, and pretty people, but the way this came together was near perfection. This shoot has also been published on The Southeastern Bride. You can find their feature here.

Not pictured: climbing over fences and horse gates to get to the ideal location on the farm for the dining experience I've only seen in my dreams. Okay, that might have been a little dramatic. I mean, there was some fence hopping... but, anyway. 

I went for a light and airy feel in the florals for this one. Browse through the gallery below to see how it all came together.  

I N G R E D I E N T S:

Silver dollar, seeded, and gunny eucalyptus, plumosa fern, Queen Anne's lace, roses, spray roses, carnation, and garden-grown dusty miller and pittosporum.
