We envisioned a warm and simple environment with a coziness for our guests. We knew this would be our chance to be around all of our loved ones at once and we wanted to create a special feeling environment. It also reflected our personal aesthetic as well. The rope was a nod to our love of water and sailing.

We used natural, wooden, and organic materials. Aside from the wood and rope we used touches of grey and coral. My fiance tied tons of monkey fists knots with rope and we used antique sugar molds, cheesecloth and airplants as the main decorations.My parents were a huge help collecting all the props. My maid of honor helped me make a garland of ribbon that hung in the entry. We used extra ribbon as accents on the aisle and the bride and grooms table. I asked friends and family set up decor for me and they literally read my mind and gave me my dream wedding. I am so lucky and very grateful!

We decided that we would love to get married in the neighborhood we live in. Our loved ones are so spread out to it was important to have them all gather and get to know the place we call home, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. When we stumbled on MyMoon and it was perfect. Beautiful outdoor patio and old brick walls. The staff was perfect. They are experienced with weddings and took great care of us. Kenan is the wedding guy there and he is amazing.

Southern Railroad Depot Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Moving from one Southern state to another, this Alabama wedding shot by Austin Gros got me grinning like a possum eating persimmons! It took place at the Historic Roundhouse Railroad Depot in Huntsville, my newest venue fave. So many of the details from this wedding were crafted by the bride and her mom, including Jalapeno Pepper Jelly as favors. Read on below for all the deets directly from the bride.

Our wedding was perfect. It came together flawlessly. We have a lot of extended family that live out of state, so it was very important to us that our wedding have a warm, mingly feel. We don’t all get together very often and went we do we love to talk! We wanted our guest to
move, gather and mingle on couches, at bar tables or in seats. When people walked into our wedding I wanted them to feel like they were walking into a southern home. That is why we decided to use the Historic Roundhouse Railroad Depot in downtown Huntsville.

My Mom and I collected and crafted so many elements of the wedding. It just made it feel more personal. We collected all of the vintage books from the library, to decorate the tables. I love to read, and now those books are on bookshelves in mine and Alan’s home. We also collected the lanterns and mason jars. Most of the mason jars were pulled out of Alan’s grandmother’s attic. We made the ribbon wands that sent us off at the end of the night. Because our venue was a historic location, we had to be a little creative. That meant no sparklers, rice, or birdseed. So we came up with ribbon wands and it was perfect! Our favors were a labor of love a year in the making. My Dad grew all of the peppers in my parents garden, then my Mom made all of the jars of the jalapeno pepper jelly, then I created the tags, and we had an assembly line of help tying the burlap on the top.

I wanted a organic, wildflower feel but not too weedy, besides that I gave them creative freedom. We also used a lot of ferns and green plants from a local nursery, Catbird Seat. The plants really helped to fill in the space. The Roundhouse, where the reception was held, started as just a big empty room. The greenery helped to warm it up and make it feel more homey.

From Kellan Studios: This workshop was hosted by our studio and Jodi Miller Photography this summer in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains at the breathtaking antebellum plantation called Pharsalia. Still in the family for well over a 100 years, it is a working orchard, vineyard, as well as selling flowers and vegetables at market all summer long.

Our workshop focused on the best of the best that the south has to offer as well as working with the unique challenges that this area can be handed (swampy hot summers for starters!). Attendees were treated to a southern retreat like feel dining on gourmet southern cuisine/drinks all day during the teaching sessions. The shooting sessions focused on four areas of the wedding world: Bridal portraits, engagement shoot, wedding day private session, and shooting reception details.

Each shooting section was highly stylized and detail heavy to incorporate that rich vintage southern feel of the plantation and surrounding views. The weather was picture perfect and each element came together seamlessly.
