Kentucky Derby Inspired Wedding

Wedding Design

Are you still in need of some gorgeous southern inspiration for your big day? Thanks to Finnegan Photography, we’ve got this delightfully-southern inspiration on the blog today, complete with those larger-than-life bows and hats, a dapper gentleman, and florals out of this world from Joann’s FloristCarlson Premier Events pulled together a shoot that called upon equestrian elegance and loveliness of My Fair Lady. The blending of the two themes created a final product so darling! What’s captivated me most are the centerpieces and how the entire space was dolled up in magnificent blooms, perfectly matching the prim and properness of the whole shoot.

From the photographer, Finnegan Photography: This Savannah, Georgia vintage wedding is all about style and grace as the details come together to become an event filled with inspiration of Kentucky Derby elegance. The Barn at Red Gate Farms is the perfect venue to host a southern engagement. Vintage pieces draped in gold and pink accents compliment the classic look of black and white that could create a timeless set of wedding portraits. All of the beautiful details and wardrobe reflect an inspired “My Fair Lady” look, and the gorgeous Savannah backdrop makes for the perfect southern affair.

Walla Walla Vineyard Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Who can resist Italy and all of its beauty and glamour? We definitely can’t and it’s no surprise that Jamie and Chris couldn’t either. So when they were planning their nuptials, what better way to bring Italy to their wedding than a gorgeous vineyard fête? It’s full of epic views, stunning wedding design by Without A Hitch Weddings, lush greenery by Amoré Floral, great eats; and it was all captured through the lens of Ryan Flynn Photography. So simple and elegant, we easily fell in love with this wedding.

From the photographer, Ryan Flynn PhotographyJamie & Chris had a weekend long celebration with their closest family and friends in Walla Walla – Washington’s wine country, at Va Piano Winery. They wanted their guests to have an Italian-inspired experience of dining al fresco amongst the vineyards – which they pulled off masterfully. We were greeted by an amazing summer sunset for portraits, the guests danced the night away and sent the couple off with a sparkler exit. Jamie wore a beautiful Watters wedding dress that really fit the vibe of her elegant and relaxed day.
