Laid Back Country Wedding

wedding invitation ideas @weddingchicks

Our next bride and groom wanted their wedding day to have a rustic yet elegant vibe. A day where everyone could come together, relax and bask in their love. As you will soon see they were totally successful.

Creating a  day that is packed to the brim with steal worthy ideas, overflowing with wild floral arrangements, cowboy boots and DIY wedding projects. Including the amazing chandelier that was hand-crafted by the bride herself.  Need we say more? Also, don’t forget to check out the bridal shoot before this laid-back country wedding. View the full gallery here. Captured by Cami Dunn photography.

Rustic Venue

The style and history of the Mill made it the perfect spot for our day. It has just the right rustic elegance that spoke to both of our personalities. Our ceremony was outside just before sunset & the reception was inside to keep our guests warm from a brisk November night.

thoughtful diy details

Over the course of a year, I was able to plan every detail of this day. The decor, flowers, cakes, playlist, and even my dress alterations were done by me, my mom & bridesmaids. I hand wrote all of the signage, created the “love” marquee sign, and collected and arranged all of the centerpieces. However, I’m most proud of the wagon wheel mason jar chandelier I crafted. It was the perfect touch for our ceremony spot.

consider hiring a videographer

We so recommend hiring a videographer, we were fortunate enough to have one in the family! My uncle was able to capture all of the little moments that we missed or had forgotten about in the excitement and chaos of the day. I hadn’t given much thought to a wedding video, but it has been so wonderful to be able to relive our day!

Bold and Modern Style

From Ivory and Beau I have a fascination and love with everything in Palm Springs and everything mid-century modern so when The Brice Hotel and its stylish modern pool came to Savannah, GA I saw this as our chance to put together a shoot worthy of a Palm Springs pool party.

The color palette we chose for this shoot was light with soft pinks, yellows, blues but we wanted a bold pop of black to make the look less girly and more bold and modern. Our bride wore a blush ballgown by Blush by Hayley Paige and our bridesmaids wore black dresses/rompers and shorts from local boutique, Fabrik.

easy cocktail recipe

A simple little drink that is always classy. A Gin Fizz as a little pep to your bar menu and if you really want to make it fancy here is a delicious recipe for a rosemary gin fizz that we know you’ll love!

diy ice cream sandwich bar

Leopolds Ice Cream and their ice cream tricycle added some summer fun to the day with scooped ice cream and plenty of toppings. But they didn’t stop there! The fun continued with hand made ice cream cookie sandwiches! Holy Moley those look so good!
