Vintage Romance for the Modern Bride

Coastal Occasions in Jacksonville Beach, Florida was the perfect venue for this styled shoot.  It is an outdoor venue with overhead pergola, lights, and a blank enough setting to really be able to style your wedding according to your theme.  The theme for this styled shoot was; Vintage Romance for the Modern Day Bride.  We wanted to show brides that vintage can be used in a more modern way, while still keeping the dreamy romantic feel of it.

The florals were a beautiful white with lots of greenery added to the sweetheatable and the mantle.  Pops of color were used for the Invitations, cake, rug, and the awesome green velvet sofa. Blush and softer pastel colors were used for the table decor to add to the romantic feel of the shoot.

If you’re unsure how to pull of the vintage theme, take a look at the pictures from this shoot for lots of great inspiration.

Sweet as a Georgia Peach

I loved everything about this Sweet as a Georgia Peach styled shoot!  The venue; Tybee Island Wedding Chapel was absolutely beautiful and set the stage for a truly southern styled wedding shoot.

 

Anytime I can incorporate my teacups into a table setting, I am over the moon!  I brought several of my floral teacups for this shoot.  The place settings I chose had hints of peach and I used pale peach napkins.  The peaches in the champagne coupes were my favorite detail of the table decor.

Oh Those Mason Jars And All Their Uses!

If you're in the South it's hard to escape the mason jars!  These babies aren't just used for canning in these parts!  They are popping up at all types of events.

Mason jars are being used for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, and other events.  They are most typically used for drinking glasses and for flowers.  Sweet tea, lemonade, and signature cocktails are great ice cold in a mason jar.  Bouquets of colorful flowers really stand out when put in mason jars and make great centerpieces.  But, why just stop there?  There are plenty of other uses for the mason jar!

Gold flatware really pops when it is in a mason jar and used on a dinner or dessert table.  I love how my vintage flatware looks in a mason jar.  It's a great look for a rustic wedding with a vintage feel.

Who doesn't like dessert?  Mason jars are great for desserts!  Serve your guests ice cream, parfait, or a chocolate mousse in a mason jar.  Doughnuts are super fun at a party and everyone seems to love them!.  Fill mason jars with milk, add a straw, and top with a doughnut.  Your guests will love this!

If your having kids at your event they need a space of their own and activities to keep them entertained.  Fill mason jars with crayons, colored pencils, cards, or dollar store games and puzzles.  The kids will be happy you thought of them!

Whether you love them or think they should be just for jams n jellies there is just no escaping the mason jar.  I kind of love them and have many in my rental inventory!

Dish It Out....
