Hello my friends! I’m doing a flashback today because Emma and Lucy Jean were staying with us for a couple of days and I spent time away from the computer 🙂
Like all weddings, Southern Weddings are full of charm. Today I’m going to show you a few photos of my daughter and SIL’s wedding. Bethany and Darren wanted a outdoor wedding in a place that felt beautifully southern. They settled on Wide Awake Plantation in South Carolina. I think the lazy river and the gorgeous Live Oaks won them over.
The lanterns were a beautiful touch…
She wanted this little set up….vintage fabric and chair for photo-ops!
Turned out pretty special I think and fit in with the ‘southern wedding ‘ theme.
****LOTS of emails come in every year about Bethany’s dress! Here’s the 411! It’s Marisa by Tamara Kristen
The flowers Bethany used were soft pink hydrangeas, pink dahlias, and pink peonies…
I caught a tiny spotted guest on my menu!
All the dinner plates were ones we found at antique stores…all different and each with their own story~the different china would be wonderful for a baby shower too!
The place-cards were adorable birds nests with tiny birds tucked inside~a cute parting gift and could be used as a Christmas ornament later on 🙂
Bethany put a tiny veil on hers…
And a tiny top hat on Darren’s!
Bethany put vases with the hydrangeas inside the bird cages…
Little votives wrapped with brown ribbon were scattered here and there on the tables~
And a dahlia here and there just because!
I love this little plate…
Everyone had a wonderful time at dinner…and the skys were blue~No rain in sight!
The bar was outside of the tent~We found this window frame and thought it would look great in the big oak!
And here’s the candy table!!! Darren and Bethany had their engagement pictures put in a book at Snapfish! (Kyle Hale took the engagement pics and the wedding photos! We think he’s utterly awesome!)
Bethany ordered most of the candy online…it’s amazing what you can get online!
Tiny cupcakes of all kinds were the other dessert!
We found some vintage dessert plates too!
Had to use a little milk glass!
There were toasts and an amazing slide show and then when the sun went down…we just danced…(Notice Kyle…he can dance, eat rock candy, sip wine and take great pictures all at the same time! I have pictures to prove this but I’m afraid to post them until he goes through and deletes any bad pics of me on the dance floor!!!) Emma, Trey and Jamie really danced!!!
Darren & Bethany left to sparklers !
It was an amazing begining to a wonderful life…I hope maybe you get an idea or two for an upcoming party you may be hosting! Love to you my friends…
