From our fabulous guest bloggers this week, Ami and Rebekah of {Elizabeth Anne Designs}.  How gorgeous is this!? Enjoy~ 
 
True Southern glamour can be achieved with the absence of color, as we see in this vintage-inspired inspiration board.  Gold, champagne, ivory, cream, white, pale blush, and black meld together to create an overall elegance and opulence.

I was honored to be asked to guest blog on one of my absolute favorite blogs on Friday, {What Junebug Loves}.  What an joy!  Christy at Junebug put together a beautiful post for us–she is so talented, a pleasure to know and an expert on weddings.  {Junebug} is a fabulous resource for wedding inspiration and all things fashionable.  Thank you, Christy, for the very kind words about SWS and for highlighting our beautiful southern location favorites.  Happy Monday!

From {Junebug}… 

Following in the footsteps of our last post about new Seattle area wedding venues, today brings us fabulous wedding location finds in Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina from guest blogger Lara Casey. Lara is the Publisher of Southern Weddings Magazine, a long time event planner with Bliss Event Group and a recent bride herself, which makes her a true expert in all things wedding! We are thrilled to have her valuable insight into wedding possibilities in her area of the country and we just love reading what she has to say…

The most popular southern wedding locations tend to be rich with history and tradition. Many of the “new” southern locations are actually historic landmarks that have been transformed into event venues or old mansions that have been remodeled for lucky brides to use on their big day. A few of our recent favorites:

Blackberry Farm, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. One of our favorite photographers, A Bryan Photography, recently shot a fabulous wedding we are about to feature there. They do very few weddings at Blackberry Farm each year (typically 1 or 2…sometimes 3) so although it has been around for awhile as a resort and hotel, they just finished their new reception hall and this wedding was the first to be hosted there.

 

 

Sea Island, Georgia, another location we love. They just finished an enormous renovation of the main hotel, The Cloister, which has created an incredible venue and setting. A Bryan Photography shot this wedding there in the fall. 

 

 

My favorite, Claxton Farm in Weaverville, North Carolina. Converted into an event space in the last decade, this is one of my favorite wedding locations! The 100-year-old tobacco barn is so versatile. I’ve seen several weddings here lately that show the versatility of the space. This wedding, shot by Woodward and Rick Photographers, used every element of the farm in a richly colorful modern way. Gorgeous! See our original Southern Weddings blog post here.

Thanks you so much, Christy!  We love {Junebug Weddings}

The ladies of {Elizabeth Anne Designs} are top notch!  I am so inspired by their posts– beautiful real weddings, expert event advice, stunning inspiration boards and to-die-for details, oh my!  We are honored to have them here with us at SWS this week to bring you their incredible southern wedding inspiration boards. And now, the beautiful and talented duo from EAD…

We are so thrilled to be guest blogging for Southern Wedding Style!  As Southern girls ourselves, we love injecting doses of true Southern charm into every style of event.  So this week, we will be sharing with you inspiration boards for five very different Southern affairs.  We hope that we inspire some ideas for planning your own Ultimate Southern Wedding! ~Ami and Rebekah

Southern Beach:

True Southerners love the beach – and beach weddings, especially in gorgeous rustic locales such as the Outer Banks and Amelia Island, are ever-popular.  This board illustrates the quintessential Southern rustic beach wedding – muted blues, lots of white, and a hint of kraft paper neutral.
