Real Wedding: Kelly + Josh

Today’s wedding submission from High Cotton Photography has us seeing double! The color palette and details remind us of our styled shoot with A.G. Lighting at The Sonnet House currently appearing in our 2014 issue. We love this venue for its many picturesque moments from the signature red tub inside the house to the farm on the grounds. It’s also perfect for hosting a ceremony in the backyard and transitioning to the reception both inside and outside the house, and your guests never have to leave one location to celebrate your full wedding day! Our friends at A.G. Lighting are experts at this bringing their lighting and draping techniques to this venue for a customized look and feel. Cafe lights over the back patio ensures your reception can continue into the night with a warm glow lighting the way. We are especially fans of the favor – personalized hot sauces! What Southern home is complete with hot sauce handy? Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Roberts!

Real Wedding: Emily + Zach

If you love a wedding with natural, Southern details then you are going to love this Real Wedding submission from J&D Photography. Emily & Zach’s soiree had the personal touches that make their day so special – the bride even crafted her own bouquet and flowers that are absolutely gorgeous. We must say we are impressed! The pews and paper lanterns at the wedding site create a fairytale ceremony scene in the woods. And at the reception outside the J&D Farms barn, guests can play a round of cornhole toss under glowing cafe lights before the party gets into full swing. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Davis!

Real Wedding: Amy + Lane

Today’s Open Submission comes to us via Shae Owens Photography. Amy Marquis & Lane Brunson tied the knot on a private property in Leeds on a crisp fall morning on October 26, 2013. We love weddings. We love brunch. Combine the two and we have a match made in heaven. After seeing these images, you will certainly join us in voting for more brunch weddings. Living in the South, we have the luxury of still being able to have outdoor weddings during the chillier portions of the year. Amy’s fur stole was the perfect accessory to keep away the chill and made for quite the stunning look we must say. Perfect papers from Annabelle’s, loose garden-style florals from HotHouse Design Studio and a ruffled cake from Olexa’s complete the rustic charm of this soiree. Kudos to all involved and congratulations to Mr & Mrs. Brunson!

Real Wedding: Jillian + Jesse

AWM 2014 is officially completed, on newsstands and in hands of future brides! Now we are thrilled to continue sharing even more Real Weddings on the AWM Blog. Our first wedding to share for the new year takes us back to the cool, crisp fall days for which we long again. Jesse Edwards and Jillian Wright were married on November 23, 2013 at Seven Gables in Tallassee, Ala. Pumpkins galore and deep, rich tones make this wedding a true ode to autumn. One of our favorite details is the chalkboard program in lieu of a printed version. The more chalk, the better we say! Kudos to Campbell Photography, on these lovely images. Congratulations to Jillian and Jesse!!
