Google+ Inside the Print Edition, Vol. II :: Watercolor, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Today we’re sharing a few additional images from the second Watercolor Palette, shot by Kyle Barnes at the Watercolor Resort. As you’ll see soon enough, we put our Paul Frederick suit to work — three different guys wore it over a period of two days!  Ben is also sporting a Paul Frederick tie, while lovely Kacie is rocking J. Crew (one of my favorite styles, I must add!) and an Avelle cuff.  One of the coolest parts about this shoot was that Cafe Thirty-A, a delicious local restaurant, was on-hand to serve up a few of their most popular entrees.

We shot this nautical palette two different ways: once on a dock, and once in a park.  Even away from the water the sea-worthy goodness shone through, which I hope makes landlocked brides everywhere breathe a little easier!

Big thanks also to Fifty Flowers (wholesale blooms), Fisher’s Flowers (floral design), Two Fishes Artistry (hair and makeup), and Nationwide Tents N Events (rentals) for helping this shoot come together!

Credits: calligraphy strips, menus, and placecards by MM Ink; embroidered runner and napkins by Filigree Monogram Designs; linens from La Tavola Linen; red leather favor boxes from World Market; red heels from Christian Louboutin; glass jars and mini lanterns from Beau-coup Favors; truffle favors from Nonnie Waller’s

P.S. When I tell you that none of these photos appeared in the print edition, and that this post doesn’t even scratch the surface of the gorgeousness that you’ll find inside the issue, I really, really mean it.  There’s a whole other tablescape we’re not even showing you!

    Adore how the navy works with the crisp white. Stunned by this not-so-cheesy nautical combo the first time I saw it in the mag and still am today. It’s such a clean, crisp way to have a colorful and traditional wedding at once. Can I get a do over now, please?

    Watercolor is one of our favorite places to visit when we stay in nearby Rosemary Beach. Beautiful setting, beautiful images.
