A southern inspired garden wedding at Bryn Du Mansion

Rachel and Stephen’s outdoor wedding at Bryn Du Mansion had all the charm and style of a classic southern inspired garden wedding. Because Rachel spent her post-college years living in Atlanta, she wanted to bring the romantic aesthetic of the south to her big day. Bringing a bride’s vision to life through design is a favorite aspect of my job, and this was no exception. Read on to see how photographer Addison Jones captured the heartwarming details designed for this central Ohio wedding.

designing the details

Drawing inspiration from the Magnolia trees of the south, the couple chose a green and white color palette, accented with tawny gold and blush. Lush florals and fresh peaches wowed wedding guests at long white farm tables in an untraditional silk tent. Consequently, Rachel + Stephen’s garden wedding at Bryn Du truly stands out from the crowd.

Throughout the decor, touches of magnolia evoked Southern charm. Pictured above are escort cards calligraphed on magnolia leaves. In addition, the invitations (designed by the groom!) and programs featured the southern bloom, as well as the ceremony floral designs.

Romantic garden style florals played up the bride’s stunning gown from La Jeune Mariee. Similarly, long silk ribbons from The Lesser Bear provided the perfect touch to the bouquets by Evergreen Floral. Meanwhile, the groom and groomsmen wore floral ties for a pop of color alongside their classic navy suits.

Perhaps one of my favorite moments of the day took place during the ceremony. Following vows, Rachel + Stephen took a moment to step beyond the lush ceremony arch to pray and take communion privately.

Confetti cannons ushered the newlyweds down the aisle in a stunning ceremony exit.

While guests mingled, Short and Stout served delicious southern inspired cocktails between giant trees on the mansion property.

the gorgeous southern inspired reception

If you’re looking for elegant but relaxed inspiration for your summer wedding, stop here. Without a doubt, Rachel + Stephen’s reception was full of gorgeous southern garden inspiration.

First, we enclosed the space in an open-air silk tent with greenery chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. After that, gold flatware and gold-rimmed china topped long, whitewashed farm tables. Likewise, the florist placed organic floral arrangements and cascading greenery down the length of the table. Finally, we styled fresh peaches, strawberries and champagne grapes into tiny gold bowls on the table, resulting in the ultimate summer garden appeal.

Organic summer floral designs included garden roses, cosmos, and ranunculus. Pops of blackberry vine made for a particularly fresh take on summer wedding florals.

southern inspired garden wedding portraits to swoon over

Rachel + Stephen slipped away during sunset for an unforgettable wedding portrait session with Addison. Their portraits in a secluded part of the Bryn Du gardens especially remind me of old romance movies. However, my favorite photo of the day is the one below, capturing the new family as they join hands together. All in all, it was a beautiful wedding full of southern charm and joyful laughter, but the love between Rachel + Stephen and their new blended family made it truly exceptional.

Juniper Rooftop Wedding Inspiration- gorgeous ideas for 614 Brides

Gorgeous, Audrey Hepburn Inspired Bridal Editorial for Juniper Rooftop in Columbus, Ohio

As seen on Green Wedding Shoes

This wedding editorial was designed to inspire brides with the stunning view of the Columbus Skyline from Juniper Rooftop.  Along with Adria from State + Arrow, we set out to create gorgeous Juniper Rooftop wedding inspiration for our local 614 brides. 

We started with a warm and feminine color palette to soften the crisp, architectural feel of the space at Juniper Rooftop. Hues of rose, yellow, burgundy and blush evoked the vibe of a rooftop party in spring. A blush colored satin gown, paired with classic hair and makeup were utterly romantic. The hand painted cake was also the perfect nod to modern, romantic style.

Finally, Adria’s circular floral centerpiece was probably one of my favorite parts of the shoot. Due to the airiness of the design, it allowed for a perfectly framed view of downtown.

Waite for Us- Ben + Kara, a classic garden-inspired wedding at the Columbus Athenaeum

I can’t begin to express how much I loved working with Ben + Kara for their wedding day. Their love for each other is so sweet, deeply rooted, and evident in every part of their planning and throughout the event. Out of their love for their Alma Mater, Ohio State, the couple chose a palette of scarlet + grey, but accented it with pinks, peaches, and greens to create the perfect summer color scheme. Their Buckeye pride was sprinkled throughout the rest of the day as well- Carmen Ohio was played during the ceremony, and Kara + Ben were surprised with a visit from the OSU Alumni marching band as well! Here are just a few of my favorite details from such a wonderful day- all provided by their amazing photographer- Susie Marie Photography (be sure to check her out!)View More: http://susiemariephotography.pass.us/waite-for-usWe wanted to honor Ben’s request for an invitation that wasn’t overly girly. The result was this sweet and simple monogrammed invitation in black and white- with colorful envelopes to give it an extra pop, and a watercolor floral envelope liner- which you can see here.  The overall vibe of the suite was dubbed “Wes Anderson at a garden party” (and Ben and Kara were BOTH happy.)View More: http://susiemariephotography.pass.us/waite-for-usView More: http://susiemariephotography.pass.us/waite-for-uspronoviasgowndetails.jpg
