Southern Living

I clearly remember when this bride booked with us a year ago. Our October dates were filling up fast and other people were interested in the date she was too. She was able decide quickly and we were fortunate enough to book her as one of our brides!

Since we'd already had our Martha Stewart Bride, we decided to dub this bride our Southern Living Bride. She got her inspiration from Southern Living Magazines and actually ordered her centerpiences from their magazine. She had four different centerpieces - three of which were made of wroght iron. Her colors were fall themed and she carried that theme through out her entire event very well!
Below are some pictures I was able to capture of her event.

Orange roses added elegance and bursts of color.

The bride put together hand made notes and reserved signs to fit her theme. Instead of a traditional sign in book, guests were asked to leave the bride and groom a note on special paper slips with colorful markers.

Overview of her sign in table. Photos of the couple and from her bridal shoot are always good ideas for your sign in table area.

The bride made origami roses to adorn her cake.

The Grooms cake was four Chocolate Sunday Surprise cheese cakes. He is an avid duck hunter so that was the theme of this table.

Origami paper was wrapped into cones and filled with rose petals. These were given to guests as they lined up outside to wish the bride and groom farewell.

Outside centerpieces and hanging Chinese lanterns.

These wrought iron candle holders handing from Sheppard's hooks lined the walkway in front of the building. They were beautiful and smelled like holiday spice. Keeping them lit was an impossible task - but the idea was good.
