Ginny & Ed III: The Ceremony + Reception

And finally, these are a few of my favorite images from the ceremony and reception...

I love Ginny's expression as the couple is pronounced husband and wife.

The photographer, Josh Goleman, also provides this fun vintage polaroid photobooth set-up for the reception. Ginny and her friends provided the vintage props and hand-painted signs. Guest loved it and I think Ginny was in there almost all night!!

And this was my favorite moment of the night- The Righteous Brothers song "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" was playing and Ed and all of the men in the bridal party simultaneously ran over to Ginny and sang to her on bended knee {think Top Gun}.

Congratulations, Ginny and Ed! I wish you all the best as you begin your life together in NYC. See more of this wedding on OnceWed {I, II, III, IV, V}, 100 Layer Cake and on Josh Goleman's blog.

Ginny & Ed II: The Details

Oh the details!! Where do I even begin with all of the fabulous details from this wedding? I suppose I will start at the proverbial beginning with the telegram-style wedding invitations created by Greenwich Letterpress.

Ginny's gorgeous bouquet and all of the florals were from Gloriosa.

Guests were asked to wear "20's themed attire" and when they arrived, there were hats available for them men and hand made feather headbands for the ladies. We placed a heart-shaped fan {with the bride and groom's names and wedding date} and freeze-dried rose petals to toss at the couple after the ceremony on each guests chair.

Ginny and Ed had their guests sign in on swatches of fabric that would later be made into a quilt. We also displayed family wedding photos on the guest book table.

Guests enjoyed the open space of the Pavilion that had lanterns strung throughout and casual wooden tables adorned with flowers in various vintage containers. The stations-style dinner, also provided by Gloriosa, included Southern favorites. Cupcakes and a hilarious "Bleeding Armadillo" red velvet cake {from the movie Steel Magnolias} were served for dessert.

Again, thank you to Josh Goleman for these images!

Ginny & Ed I: The Couple + Wedding party

I was super excited to see this wedding featured on OnceWed and 100 Layer Cake yesterday. I had the pleasure of working with Ginny and Ed for their wedding on May 30th at Serenbe and just fell in love with the southern charm + 20's couture/vintage details of this wedding and this super sweet couple who met in the 8th grade! There are so many gorgeous images to share from New York photographer Josh Goleman, I will start with the lovely bride and groom and their oh-so-stylish wedding party.

Next up: the details and my favorite images from the ceremony and reception.

Robin & Neill

I wanted to be sure you had some eye-candy even while I was away! I am jumping ahead again, but I just have to share this beautiful wedding. Robin and Neill were married at Hawkesdene House in North Carolina on June 12th. Robin and Neill were engaged at Hawkesdene House, so it was only appropriate to return to the quaint B&B for their intimate wedding celebration. The ceremony took place in front of a smaller barn on the property- down a path lined with rose bushes in full bloom with bright pink buds. Robin integrated herbs throughout the entire wedding- in her bouquet, the centerpieces- even what guests threw as she and Neill made their way down the aisle after the ceremony. We loved the estate table that sat 40 guests for dinner in front of a picturesque large barn. After dinner, everyone danced and enjoyed the bride and groom's cake {displayed on a tree stump, of course!} and FIREWORKS! Late night, guests headed to the fire pit for S'mores. Best Wishes, Robin and Neill- thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! Thank you very much to Torrence Photography for these stunning images- breathtaking! And a MAJOR shout out to our team member Courtney and the florist Dina for their hard work and saving the day despite of the monsoon-like rains.
