Did I tell you how much I love the blue in this Virgil Bunao wedding? Emily + Brian dressed up Legare Waring House’s already beautiful lawn with flowing linens, floral patterned table runners and string lights. The cocktail tables interspersed throughout the dinner tables carries over the bold shade of blue we love while the cake, courtesy of The Cake Stand, seamlessly mirrored the wedding decor. I’m so happy to see that the couple included a game of corn hole at their wedding, complete with their monogram — because if that isn’t Southern, I don’t know what is!

See all the photos from Emily + Brian’s wedding in their Real Wedding Gallery!

Describe your wedding cake: It was seamlessly intertwined into our wedding décor and decorated with white, cobalt blue and powder blue. It was delicious chocolate, key lime, and carrot cake.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Our photographer! Virgil Bunao Fine Arts wedding photography captured every special moment and emotion that I will be able to reflect back on for a lifetime.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The feeling of having all of our friends and family in the same place sharing in our celebration. The amount of love present in one place was incredible.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are extremely excited to start our life together. We look forward to many adventures to come and to taking on the world together.

      Working on getting you a source, Lindsey! We’ll update as soon as we know. But in the meantime, aren’t they amazing?!

      Hi Lindsey! Thank you so much for your patience! I finally have an answer, though it’s probably not the one you want — they were made by the bride and groom! Darn those crafty couples :)

    Thus far, I have had 2 brides this year use cornhole for entertainment for their guests – 1 had a Miami Dolphins set and the other had a combo of UGA & UF colors. HOWEVER, I looooove this personalized monogram! woo! Doesn’t get much more southern than that, I will certainly suggest that to my next couple.

    Id also like to add that those table runners are exquisite! just love em!

Before I direct your attention to Brooke + Victor’s incredible cake display (no, seriously, you have to see it!) from Jim Smeal, I just want to point out how darling the pop of electric blue peeking out from beneath the bride’s dress is in this second picture. (Confession: I love the blue everywhere in this wedding!) WED designed Brooke + Victor’s Charleston celebration, right down to the lush blue and white hydrangeas. We’re still giddy Mel Barlow shared this wedding with us, and are willing to bet you are, too!

Y’all may remember Brooke + Victor’s cheery South Carolina wedding at the Lowndes Grove Plantation from our last issue. In fact, we’re pretty sure you do, since B + V’s celebration was a hands-down reader favorite, in large part because of the bright blue accents (Nicole Miller bridesmaid dresses and sassy Christian Louboutins, for starters!) and crisp photos, courtesy of Mel Barlow + Allan Zepeda. This plantation-style wedding was one of my very favorites in V3. Brooke still gets my vote for her airy Marchesa column gown!
