Category: Inspirations

After 7+ years of writing about, dreaming about, and scheming about Southern weddings, they still don’t get old to me! I’m constantly energized by the thoughtful, creative ways y’all incorporate your stories and what matters most to you into your wedding day details, and by our vendor community, who is always finding new ways to put unique twists on Southern staples. This wedding inspiration by The Willetts and Brianne McMullan is a perfect example. My favorite part? The subtle Atlanta nods they mixed into their vibrant Palm Beach meets Regency aesthetic. Lots of inspiration to pull from here for spring, summer, and even winter weddings!

From the team: We are so excited to share this beautiful styled shoot, showcasing a glam, colorful, and truly Southern style! An incredible team of vendors came together to showcase South Florida, Palm Beach infused details. Our inspiration came from the trend of adding bold color and bright patterns to a blank background. Even though the Hollywood Regency style became popular in the 1930’s, there’s a huge rebirth of the vibrant style today which we thought could (and should!) be translated into upcoming weddings! Incorporating details like the peach tones, actual peach fruit, and a modern background added touches of Atlanta to the theme. Our delicate, bright and metallic details brought this beautiful shoot together!

It’s no surprise that so many of our favorite weddings of all time took place under the gracious canopy of a Sperry Tent. They’re the perfect classic backdrop for events of all aesthetics, with their beautiful sailcloth canopies, expert construction, and lyrical lines (plus, those flags atop each tent peak!). Today, we’re sharing nine of our favorite Sperry Tent weddings that show the range of celebrations where these tents are at home, and how many creative ways they can be used.

If you’re thinking of booking one for your own wedding or event, be sure to check out Sperry Tents Southeast!

No. 1: Alex and Trevor’s wedding was one for the books, from their candle-lined ceremony in the woods to her overflowing bouquet and their sugar flower cake. A twinkle-light draped Sperry Tent was the perfect setting for dancing into the night! Photos by Clark Brewer, styling by Caroline Brewer, and planning by RT Lodge. See more of their Sperry tent wedding.

No. 2: Continuously ranked one of the best all-time from our archives, Callie and Jamie filled their wedding with meaningful details inspired by their love story. For their reception, they chose to dine al fresco at long tables, then headed under the tent for dancing, late-night snacks, and a confetti blast! Photos by Nancy Ray, planning by RiverOaks Charleston, and design by Rebecca Rose Events. See more of their Sperry tent wedding.

No. 3: When I think of the ultimate Southern Weddings wedding, Whitney and Clark’s celebration pops to mind first. From their classic attire to the graceful way they hosted their guests under a tent and inside Pippin Hill, it doesn’t get much more lovely than this. Photos by Patricia Lyons and planning by Easton Events. See more of their Sperry tent wedding.

No. 4: I mean, I’m making this list, so I guess I get to include my own wedding, right?! It is most definitely one of my favorites :) Our tent added the perfect indoor-outdoor feel to our garden reception, and was the perfect classic backdrop to our pink and navy details. Photos by Tanja Lippert. See more from our Sperry tent wedding.

No. 5: Anne Sydney and Jesse might win for having the larger tented wedding in our archives, clocking in at 470 guests. But I think they also might win for best tent location: on top of a mountain! Photos by Melanie Mauer and design by Jaclyn Journey. See more from their Sperry tent wedding.

No. 6: Georgia and Charlie’s tent was the perfect classic backdrop for their colorful, floral aesthetic. I love the patterned curtains they added at the tent’s entrances – such a pretty touch! Photos by Eric Kelley and planning by Easton Events. See more from their Sperry tent wedding.

No. 7: Landing yet another Easton Events wedding on our list (we told you she was the Sperry queen!), Lauren and Rob’s classic coral celebration always stands out as such a joyful one. I loved how simple and vibrant their color scheme was! Photos by Jen Fariello. See more from their Sperry tent wedding.

No. 8: A petite tent is a perfect way to gather in an intimate crowd and make the space feel intentional! I love this pretty anniversary party on Snippet & Ink (her pink dress!). Photos by Tec Petaja and planning by Calder Clark.

No. 9: Jen and Shane turned to a tent when thunderstorms threatened their outdoor ceremony – such a great Plan B! :) We love the lush greenery lining their aisle as well as the custom monogrammed Moscow Mule cups. Photos by Katie Stoops and planning by Easton Events as seen on Style Me Pretty.

After just a quick cupcake decorating class at our annual team retreat, I have a deep appreciation for the makers of the amazing cakes we are honored to feature. Let’s just say that pastry decorating might not be my hidden talent. Luckily, our brides worked with some very talented folks to create these ten fabulous sweets tables. Scroll down for your favorites from 2016!
