Inspired by spring delicacy and intricate details, this dreamy, intimate editorial in Augusta, GA, combined whimsical colors and textures with bold, chic elements to produce a celebration rooted in Southern hospitality. From the gorgeous bridal suite and breathtaking ceremony florals to the exquisite stationery and dusty blue heels, this styled shoot is a timeless depiction of a garden-inspired wedding. Every detail was influenced by seasonal tones and layered with refined design to inspire the authentic bride and groom who seek to elevate their spring wedding.
Featuring classic Southern magnolia trees and an open-air chapel, Gracewood Manor was the perfect location to display an elevated spring-themed wedding look. Carefully crafted stationery by Maddie Laidig Designs highlighted this charming venue on the custom invitation suite. Additionally, the bride’s whimsical blue and white gown, which encapsulated the essence of spring with every stitch, was the star of the editorial.
The undeniably mesmerizing custom floral arch crafted by Becca Zorn Designs was positively breathtaking. Hues of pink and blue among the garden foliage illustrated the delicacy of spring throughout this elevated editorial. Every element, including the stunning cake by Hey Honey Cakery and the bold bar display from Party Reflections, was dripping with floral perfection.
Another unique design element was the intricate yet intimate estate table. This head table, boasting a lush floral installation among dainty candlelight, was completed with the elegant texture of a BBJ La Tavola fine linen. A display of elevated Southern hospitality, this table incorporated delicate details, including scrolled stationery and hand-painted cookies to sophisticated china and classic glassware.
From the beautiful blue floral escort card display to the natural wood elements of the estate table chairs, this editorial played with rich tones and subtle motifs by incorporating consistency into every element. Ashley Hamilton and her team at Hamilton Events loved integrating the overarching design into even the smallest detail, and they hope this styled editorial will inspire couples actively planning their dream wedding!
