Tropical Southern Bridal Luncheon For The Die Hard Golden Girls Fan

Golden girls inspired bridal luncheon

For the die hard Golden Girls fan - this bridal luncheon is a must-see from Southern Savvy Events! With a nod to both the Southern and Sicilian backgrounds of Sophia and Blanche, the details turned out both picture-perfect and tantalizingly tasty!

With palm leaves, gorgeous dahlia’s and several lovely mini cherry cheesecakes, this shoot has stylish vibe fit for any bride-to-be, fan or not! Cathy Durig Photography captured this day beautifully, so be sure to see all the lovely images in the full gallery after.

Special memories

From Lauren of Southern Savvy EventsWhen I think about my Grandmother and the time we spent together, the Golden Girls always comes to mind. As a young girl I would spend the night at her house and every time I remember laying in bed watching Golden Girls and snacking on Tums (so funny to think about, was this healthy? probably far from it!)…I suppose you could say it was my thing to share with her.

Golden Girls inspiration

Since this shoot is so near and dear to my heart it was important that the creative team be the perfect fit. I was very specific when selecting our team to ensure they were all familiar with the Golden Girls, could take my inspiration board and understand exactly which parts of the show I wanted to highlight.

Southern and Sicilian details

The Duke Mansion was a natural fit to showcase a lanai type backdrop and pulling in Banana Leaves and Palm Fronds gave a nice nod to Miami, the show’s setting. Sophia and Blanche’s respective Sicilian and Southern backgrounds both play a major role in defining their characters so we have included details of both into our menu and specialty drink details.
