From Noi Tran Photography – “It never fails here in the south, Georgia particularly that rain will parade on your wedding day! The idea for this inspirational shoot comes from a southern tradition, Burying the Bourbon.”
From Noi Tran Photography – “Tradition has it that if the couple buries a bottle of bourbon one month before the wedding day, at the location of the ceremony site, it will not rain on the wedding day. I’m not quite sure how accurate that truly is but I’m totally for digging up the bottle of bourbon on the day of the wedding and toasting loudly to the couple, CHEERS!
There are even a few variations of this folklore. To bury it upside down, that it must be a full unopened bottle and even burying it on a nice pretty day (that’s to say if the weather permits) so that you’ll have that kind of day when the big event arrives!”
“Whitney of Whitewood Events approached me with the idea of Burying the Bourbon as an inspiration for a wedding editorial and I was all for it. Joining us as the modeling Bride and Groom was Christopher and Melody Munn. They are quite the charismatic couple. Christopher rocked his up do bun and Melody charmed us with her captivating beauty, as always.”
Floral Recipe for the bridal bouquet from Gardenia Floral Design:
“Lenten roses, hybrid anemone, maidenhair fern, white astrantia, sword fern, dusty miller & Italian ruscus combined for a textural, unusual late winter/early spring bouquet for the bride, and a complementing boutonniere for the groom!”
From Noi Tran Photography – “A greenhouse is such a unique place to have a ceremony. Since greenhouse venues are not as open to the public, this is a great idea and backdrop for a smaller and intimate wedding, maybe even an elopement. I love all the lush green and the different varying plants. It was a natural backdrop that didn’t need much help from our simple human hands.
As a nod to spring we decided to add in pops of pink and soft yellows but still keeping small appearances of winter to show the transition. As you look around you can see the beginnings of spring and new blossoms awaiting. Rain is much-needed for this process. But we definitely don’t want rain on the wedding day so why not bury the bourbon and wish the rain away?!”
