Nothing but happy hearts + poetic garden wedding inspiration in this Southern soiree that brought together a number of Georgia wedding vendors alongside couples in the “to be wed” season of their lives. Yep. We’re talking about the Big Fake Wedding that just graced Athens, Georgia! So get ready to witness some flourishing greenery, delightful pattern play and petite treats that’ll have you drooling… Let’s goooooo!
The fashion from Elegant Bridals is uber romantic and sets the tone for what’s in store! With cascading tulle and vine-like floral embellishments, the sophisticated, yet whimsical tone will continue throughout.
Gardenia Floral Design brought to life this verdant backdrop for the ceremony, creating a lush indoor garden effect amidst the foyer of 255 Milledge. The bride descended a dramatic staircase to reach her groom waiting amidst the soft candlelight and Far Eastern scents.
Soirees Southern Events Planning & Florals served up some pastel beauty in the texture-forward personal flowers held by the ladies + worn by the men.
And the invitations from PlainJane Designs incorporated some happy pattern pops with curlicue script!
Sara + Logan are a brother and sister photography duo based in Athens, and the way they captured the colors and emotion of the day is oh so good!
Okay, agate cake detail… we see you! Hey Honey! Cakery brought this texture amplified design to life and we have a pretty good feeling it tastes as scrumptious as it looks!
Athens-based photographer, Kaitlyn Fellow Photography captures all the details in stride and we’re like…. uh huh, honey!
This sweet film from A & E Videography is a must watch! Don’t miss all the warm fuzzies and eskimo kisses below:
