Wenjie + Futhum | Soft Contemporary Wedding at Fernbank Museum

A real Georgia wedding, featured in Southern Weddings, Wenjie and Futhum stated their vows in front of their families who came from far and wide to witness their love for one another. Taking place at The Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta, Georgia, both Wenjie's Chinese heritage and Futhum's Eritrean could be seen in the details. While they opted for a more modern Westernized ceremony and reception, featuring culturally valuable colors and design choices, their love for each other and from their families crossed all barriers. Being a part of the entire planning process and design was absolutely a joy for us, and we wish them a very happy One Year Anniversary month! We love you two, and we wish you many many more years of adventure, laughter, growth, and love.

Modern Farm Romance | Elegant Neutral Indoor Wedding Inspiration

Today we get to share a very fun project, featured in Wedding Sparrow this morning!

Bringing to life a vision for a creative project is the most fun, you guys! Curating all of the details, to suit this Photography Workshop, hosted by Noi Tran, was every bit what you think of when you see or hear 'collaboration', and we enjoyed it to the fullest. Thank you Angelina, for trusting me with completing your vision. We can't wait to see and share your finished product, but until then, here are some of our first picks from Noi Tran. Cheers to Friday!

For our Friday finale of the week, we're loving today's elegant and timeless indoor wedding inspiration, courtesy of photographer Noi Tran. Every element, designed by Whitney Downs, feels a bit Old World with a hint of European in style with the dusty neutrals and natural elements. One of the design specifics that we really loved has to be the chic black candelabras as they added the perfect amount of height to the tablescape to complement the stunning arrangement by European Floral Design....

Emily + Kevin | Charming Southern Garden Wedding

Announcing today that this sweetest couple's wedding is being featured on Southern Weddings! The engagement and planning process was around 16 months, and we loved every single moment of it. We loved that Emily and her mother were as excited about all of the details as we were, and to see it all come together is a dream.

This wedding is the epitome of a Southern Garden Wedding, and the beautiful Taylor Grady House is the backdrop. Enjoy!

Sarah + Josh | New Year's Eve Nuptials

There's no party like a wonderfully executed New Year's Eve Wedding (Party)! Sarah and Josh said 'I Do' on December 31st, with their close friends and family, at The Georgian Hall in downtown Athens, Georgia. The entire planning process was a blast, and we were on the same page throughout! It's always a wonderful experience to be able to plan and execute our clients' dreams and visions for their special day. And honestly, we squealed with delight when we got the 'okay' to have confetti canons for the stroke of midnight. It did not disappoint!

All in all though, Sarah's love for a clean and classic style with a touch of contemporary made it a breeze for us. She let us know what she liked and didn't like, and working closely with all of the vendors to ensure it was perfect was such a joy! We worked with Oconee Printing for the custom designed monogram which can be seen on the invitation suite, matchbooks, koozies, and champagne glasses. We were sure to include a wide variety of white and green florals throughout the space, seeing as the design called for simple sophisticate, and we are thrilled to share some of our favorite images with you here! Everything from the specialty linens to the custom lighting and fun beats, provided by David at Sound Insight Productions, we created an atmosphere worthy of the occasion.

Don't miss out on their wedding day video at the bottom - it's one for the books, you guys! The team at Loree Videography nailed it, to say the least!
