Sweet Southern Wedding in Tennessee

AustinGros_Parker&Spencer_1

An upscale Southern wedding at an elegant outdoor venue is what these two musical lovebirds dreamed of for their big day, and with the help of family, friends and talented wedding vendors – including the amazing AUSTIN GROS who captured these delightful images – that’s exactly what they created. Their venue, a beautiful plantation home with full-circle views of the rolling Tennessee Hills, brought to mind the lake trips of their youth, while a firework show was a happy reminder of their July 4th engagement.

When it came to her stunning florals by LAUREN ATKINSON Taylor knew exactly what she wanted: café au lait dahlias, with astilbe, peonies and garden roses, as well as deep green foliage to reflect the tree where the romantic outdoor ceremony took place. Finding a caterer who could cook like her grandmother was another priority, and the spread of delicious Southern fare included banana pudding, macaroni and a biscuit bar. This gorgeous wedding also features in Issue 7 of MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE.

Modern & edgy bridal gowns from Houghton NYC

Angela&Evan_Houghton_1

I’ve been lusting over some of the gowns I’ve seen online recently from HOUGHTON, and you’ll see exactly why in this fun, modern shoot from ANGELA & EVAN PHOTOGRAPHY. Stylish, sexy and timeless gowns, they offer brides a fashionable yet non-traditional option for her wedding day… and they could definitely be worn again!

Angela & Evan said: “When we saw the dresses from Houghton Bride, we fell in love with each and every one! We’re talking jaws on the floor, eyes popping out of our head, nearly drooling… our favorites featured pink-to-ivory ombre lace, icy blue overlays, low backs, high slits, and crop tops!

The look of Houghton Bride is modern, edgy and sexy. In designing this shoot, we wanted to soften this look with hints of femininity and touches of romance, without straying too far from the original Houghton Bride style. We worked with solid color backdrops, pastel color panels and minimalist furniture pieces that allowed the intricate details, delicate textures, and bold silhouettes of the dresses to standout. Make-up was kept fresh with smokey eyes and pink lips. Hairstyles of messy low buns, side braids and soft waves complimented the character of each dress. Tess of JULY FLORAL DESIGN, created dreamy “levitating” floral garlands of eucalyptus branches and garden roses, heather clutch bouquets, airplant head wreathes, and an absolutely stunning garden rose headpiece. Her florals added just the right amount of organic beauty to this very chic shoot.”
