A sweet Southern wedding with a must-see custom groom’s table

muted colorful summer wedding centerpieces

Holland and Dylan first met in 2012 at Jackson Preparatory School before Holland transferred to attend a new school. Three years later, in Oxford, Mississippi, fate intervened as they coincidentally found themselves attending the first Ole Miss football game of the year. Two weeks later, they officially started their journey together, and the rest (as they say) is history! Eight years later, they said "I do" at The Jefferson Oxford with the help of Gavin Snyder and captured by Chelsea Duff Photography.

Contrary to her initial vision of an all-lace dress, Holland opted for a simple yet classy white gown from Bridal Path that was elegant and timeless. To add a touch of lace, she adorned her veil with a delicate lace trim, which also matched the cake table linen overlay later at the reception. Holland's favorite part of her outfit thought? The shoes!

The floral design by Fresh Cut focused on vibrancy and playfulness. Even though she started with a color scheme of light blue, green, and white, Holland felt inspired to add more colorful fun.

Food by Elizabeth Heiskell played a significant role in reflecting the bride and groom's personalities. The couple incorporated their favorite childhood treat, grilled cheese, with a dedicated grilled cheese bar. Donuts, their beloved midnight snack, made an appearance as a late-night snack at the wedding, as well! The groom's table featured game food such as turkey and duck he had hunted himself, tying in Dylan's passion for hunting and the outdoors.

Reflections from the planner

“It was an honor to plan and design such a beautiful wedding celebration for Holland and Dylan. When I am designing a wedding for a client, my goal is to always have the room be a reflection of the couple and the bride. Colorful lush florals accompanied with soft blue and white linens were the perfect combination of sweet and fun. It was apparent that Holland and Dylan bring so much joy to everyone around them, so it was inspiring to see such an amazing space come together for them alongside their friends and family to celebrate such a milestone in their lives," shared their planner, Gavin Snyder.
