Our “Sweet Southern Sunday” wedding speaks to the lovely, understated, and simple design elements that add a bit of Southern charm…and none of “the fuss”. Set in the early afternoon, this wedding included an antique door as the ceremony arbor and a perfect backdrop for the bride and groom to say “I do”. Vintage tea cups and saucers adorned each place setting for the afternoon brunch menu. In keeping with the Sunday theme, the Sunday Times announced the bride and groom’s big news. The newspaper “programs” included a crossword with clues inspired by “fun facts” about the happy couple.
The bride’s great aunts baked pies from recipes that have filled their family’s kitchens with heavenly aromas for generations. Sweet Tea scented candles permeated the air throughout the venue. And, the flowers were bright and light with a collection of Gerber daisies, Peruvian lilies, succulents, and sprays of baby roses. The favors included mason jars of Momma’s homemade jam with directions to “Spread The Love”.
There was an unmistakeable feeling of love and intimacy felt by everyone who attended. Each of the design elements right down to the Southern Sunday brunch menu left the guests feeling like they had been invited right into the happy couple’s home.
Be true to your style. Sweet. Southern…or whatever that style might be.
