Google+ Southern Weddings V6: Blackberry Beauty - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

It’s only appropriate that we’re sharing Blackberry Beauty the week of Thanksgiving, because believe it or not, Thanksgiving was a prime source of inspiration for this berry-filled shoot! We loved the idea of a wedding centering around some of the same things we love most about Thanksgiving–family and close friends, delicious food, and a few tasty desserts in starring roles.

Hugs to Lauren Kinsey for these beautiful images, and to The Strickland House and Eden Gardens for the beautiful setting!

This sweet invitation is one of our favorite details–it’s a personal, handwritten note from the parents of the bride. Clearly, they’re smitten with their future son-in-law!

We couldn’t have a blackberry shoot without including the sweet berry in our florals! Blue Ribbon Vendor Myrtie Blue did a beautiful job incorporating them into the arrangements.

Doesn’t the food on this menu sound divine? Framed by this gorgeous wreath, the menu itself is also quite a showstopper.

Such a beautiful table! The purple glass and flowers tied to the darling chair covers are a few of my personal favorite details, but it really is all stunning.

We love sparkler exits as much as anyone, but oh my stars, this firework exit is nothing short of magical!

We’d love to know, what’s your favorite detail from Blackberry Beauty?

    I know I claimed my favorite editorial already for V6, BUT this is STUNNING! The picture on the porch with tea lights reminds me of the Notebook and its just a timeless, elegant shoot. I want to recreate this! Great job ladies!
