STYLED SHOOT // Classic + Colorful Southern Wedding // Georgia Wedding Photographer

Yeesh, I am so excited to share with you a styled shoot that brought together some of our area’s most talented vendors.

Lisa Thorne of Thorne and Thistle Designs (based in Auburn, but happy to travel!) used her creative genius to create a perfect mix of Southern charm and colorful florals to create a seriously stunning event. I am always blown away by her ability to take one piece of inspiration (in this case, the venue itself– the Town Hall at Old Town) and run with it. She created some of the most incredible bouquets I’ve ever seen, flower crowns for our little wedding guests, an intricate floral arch and chandelier above the ceremony site, and an out-of-this world tablescape atop Outdoor Events‘ one-of-a-kind farm tables (and surrounded by their AWESOME wooden x-back chairs.) I love Outdoor Events’ selection because it’s so unique and versatile (did you see that vintage whiskey barrel!?). They also are SO GREAT to work with!

Bright Salon, Uptown Gowns, and J. Andrews Bridal made sure our bride + bridesmaids looked absolutely gorgeous. I loooove the gown that the girls at Uptown provided– so elegant yet simple. With Wonder Paper provided a beautiful paper suite– I’m especially fond of the green envelope liner– such a nice touch!

Lastly, Patti Hasting of P.Hasting Design made sure the day ran smoothly. I have had the joy of working with Patti more and more these past few months, and I truly don’t know how I ever got by without her. I cannot stress enough the importance of having someone like Patti help with your wedding. She is such a gem and makes sure that nothing falls through the cracks and that everyone is in the right place at the right time. As a bride, it’s so important to enjoy your day and not be stressed, and I can honestly say that Patti makes sure that happens!

A special thanks, too, to our wonderful models! Y’all were a dream to work with and I am so thankful for each of you!
