Traditional Purple Wedding with a Modern Twist

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this charming historic wedding in Georgia! Brian and Natalie rented out The Venetian Room near downtown Atlanta, and had this early 1900s venue decked out in beautiful violet hues. If you enjoy the finer things in life, you swoon over this purple wedding theme.

Their special day was both classic and modern. From the elegant marble to the chandeliers, the entire space leaves guests breathless. We are swooning over the pink and purple flower bouquets and the array of deep purple, and soft lavender, bridesmaids dresses. The sophisticated white Calla Lily centerpieces on the reception tables made quite a statement, as did the tiny candles scattered about the crystal vases. What was the real icing on the cake for us? We got a huge kick out of Natalie and Brian’s swirled chocolate and vanilla cake. Who doesn’t love getting the best of both worlds on their special day?

Grey Classic Wedding on High Grove Estate

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this stunning classic wedding inspiration with you all! Set on an elegant Southern estate overlooking Lake Laurel, you’ll quickly see why these vendors fell in love with its vintage charm.

Perfect for any time of the year, this chic color palette is neutral enough to be used during any season. We love the various grey hues, and baby blue colors paired with just a hint of mint. Though this wedding feels traditional, it also encompasses some boho style flare. This swoon-worthy wedding dress has an embroidered lace bodice with an illusion neckline. If that doesn’t make you fall head over heels, the cathedral train will!

Their elegant floral watercolor invitations set the tone for this event. Filled with soft creams, pastel blues, and chic grey tones, this vintage design perfectly matches the reception decor.

A Romantic Southern Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are swooning over this seriously stunning styled shoot! There are so many things we love about this piece- its romantic charm, the golden summer hues, and the vintage Rolls Royce automobile. If you are thinking about hosting a summer outdoor wedding, take notes on this epic traditional wedding inspiration.

There is something so nostalgic about Charleston; we are forever smitten with the Spanish moss that dangles along the old trees, and the ageless brick homes that live within its city limits. It’s a quaint little city that almost seems to take you back in time. Though any wedding theme looks stunning in South Carolina, we can’t help but fall head over heels for a soft color palette here, where the scenery does most of the talking. This formal wedding used our premium foil pressed wedding invitations to tie in their chic theme.

Make sure to also check out the fun creative video down at the bottom! #swoon

Rustic Pink Outdoor Farm Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are elated to be sharing this classic southern-style wedding! Brooke and Steven were married on a stunning 50-acre family farm out in South Carolina. Their sweet ceremony took place alongside a serene lake, and was then accompanied by some hilarious wedding photos of the bride and groom. This rustic farm wedding is too much fun! Did we mention they even have a horse and buggy?

Steven and Brooke wanted a fun and casual atmosphere for their big day. They made sure to have some delicious home-cooked BBQ at their reception, as well as some rustic decor pieces. Brooke was most inspired by blush and gold colors, which are perfect for the summertime. Vibrant pink peonies were seen in every bouquet, and paired with whimsical bridesmaid dresses. The dance floor was a big hit that night and everyone danced to an array of great tunes, from Forever Young to Uptown Funk! These two lovebirds will be headed to Central America for their amazing honeymoon.

Autumn Wedding in Asheville

Today, we are so happy to be sharing this adorable Southern wedding with ya’ll. Alex and Windsor first fell in love while attending Harvard! Though the currently reside in Boston, they held their wedding back in Windsor’s hometown of Asheville, North Carolina.

These lovebirds had their wedding start off with a traditional church ceremony in the morning, a chic brunch in downtown Asheville during the afternoon, and finished with a backyard BBQ in Windsor’s childhood home during the evening. If you enjoy a gorgeous wedding with a fun twist, you will definitely enjoy exploring these wedding pictures. Who doesn’t love s’mores and southern rock music? This wedding is the epitome of a perfect summer night, or some wonderful rustic, autumn inspiration.
