Formal Fall Garden

November 2, 2009

Here in the South, the weather stays nice pretty late into the Fall which makes it feasible to have an outdoor wedding even in early November.

If you’re in the South, I think a wedding in a formal garden, filled with sculpted evergreens, stone statues and architectural details would be lovely and unexpected for a Fall wedding.

There’s definitely more to the Caribbean than beaches and palm trees. Rather than the typical island wedding, I figured I would share another side of island style. In this case, an elegant wedding in the lush gardens of an old plantation house.

Old World Vintage

June 1, 2009

Even if getting married in an ancient city like Rome is out of the question (and the budget), recreating that old world feeling is still possible. Have a banquet-style feast at one long table, place flowers in mercury glass vessels and incorporate stone statues into the decór…
