I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

The Barn at Swallows Eve in Fredericksburg, Texas set the scene for this light-hearted and lively inspiration shoot. Florist and stylist Taylor Cumbie Design saw the new barn venue as “a beautiful, natural canvas” with its dusty grays and earthy neutral tones of the landscape—perfect for introducing a lush, saturated palette of juicy corals and deep plums. The florals are, of course, fabulous and Southern Unique Events pulled together additional fun details like a retro food truck and vintage car. We’re loving the happy look and it’s all captured here by Allison Jeffers Photography.

Today we bring you a Tuscan-inspired shoot in the foothills of Tennessee. In the words of The Gifford Collective, “Let’s face it. Not all of us can swing a destination wedding in Tuscany no matter how much our hearts desire a celebration spent sipping Chianti in the gorgeous Italian countryside.”  With this truth in mind, the team set out to create that same that warm and earthy feeling at Meadow Hill Farm just south of Nashville. Details include living centerpieces by Gradient and Hue, hand-lettered bread wrappers and shimmery copper menus by Fanciful Ink, Italian-made glazed ceramic wall tile seating chart installation and a hand-painted 3-tier cake adorned with greenery and tomatoes by Copper Whisk Cakes. Touches of terra cotta and an abundance of effortless European flair, the film images captured by Cassidy Carson Photography are sure to inspire all our Tuscan-loving couples.

Photographer Kristen Hendricks Photography brings us a palette of wintery pastels in this inspiration shoot set at Silver Oaks Chateau. Dusty blue details in the tablescape, textural florals by Roses & Mint and hand lettering by RSVPEAS add romance while mix-and-match china and Made by Lia‘s petite blue cake decked out in florals keep things feeling modern. Kristen Hendricks Photography captured all the details set against the seasonal backdrop of bare trees and we’re thrilled to share the beauty in these images.

We are completely holi-dazzled by Caroline and Ben’s Auburn, Alabama wedding. Invision Events planned the day with help from florist The Flower Store and stationer Linen & Leaf. The deep maroon palette is the perfect twist on traditional holiday colors and keeps things totally timeless with a multi-seasonal appeal. The details are stunning—a lush ceremony arch, letterpress calligraphy, wood-mounted custom signage, embroidered cocktail napkins, suspended greenery structures and flowers everywhere—and the best part is that it was all set against the backdrop of the bride’s family cabin at Parker Hill. The family property is also a venue and Carline and Ben’s wedding was the first to be celebrated there. Lucky for us, the couple enlisted the skills of our friend Davy Whitener Photography to capture their day and the images are stunning.

What made the wedding special and unique? 

The wedding was unique to me because it was freezing and raining most of the day! We had to do a last minute rain tent for ceremony, but it ended up all working out and was beautiful. We were all close together and huddled up! And our pictures turned out beautiful!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

My mom and I found the Rivini gown in Atlanta at Lori’s Bridals where “Say Yes to the Dress” is filmed. I had looked at several other places, but when I tried this one on it was that feeling of “THIS IS IT!” It fit me like a glove so I didn’t need to do many alterations and the veil really sold me on the dress as well.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We did a lot of personalization like most people do from the napkins to the cups, but I think the biggest thing was having the wedding at our family cabin. My dad renovated it for the wedding so none of our guests had ever been there! It was our own style from the actual venue down to the décor!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The vows were the most memorable part of the day for me! Our longtime family friend married us and my aunt read a poem that my grandmother – who had passed the year before – had written years ago about getting married on a rainy day. It was so surreal that it was actually raining on our wedding day! I felt like my grandmother was with us at the ceremony.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met in Destin when I was on a girls trip in 2015. I vacationed in Destin a lot and had a friend that was living there. We ran into him and he introduced us! Ben deployed to South America a week later for six months. We kept in touch and when he got back to the states we immediately started dating. The engagement was very low key! We were living in Destin and on the way to dinner he said needed to get something from my parents beach condo that he had left there. We went out on the balcony and there were flowers and he got on one knee and asked! It was just us – very personal and sweet! And overlooking the ocean which is a big part of our life!
