sophisticated southern charm

From Uptown Events & Travel “We wanted to incorporate as many sweet southern details as possible in this wedding inspiration shoot, while maintaining a clean, romantic simplicity. Green Pastures in Austin, Texas really embodied the authentic setting and understated charm we were aiming for, so we wanted to make the estate our focal point for the photo shoot. It truly offered the perfect backdrop for the ceremony with its bright light and grand live oaks!”

“The color palette we were going for was fairly neutral, focusing on crisp white, gray, and black with pops of green and subtle hints of powder blue. This simplistic starting point helped create an atmosphere of sophisticated romance, while allowing us to be a bit playful in the details.”

“The stunning gown was a statement piece for this sweet southern theme. The classic yet subtly flirtatious design was exactly in line with our vision. We kept the cake minimalistic and modern in order to play up the gorgeous magnolia flower. As magnolia trees perfectly symbolize the southern romantic spirit, we incorporated a magnolia bloom into the groom’s boutonniere and turned magnolia leaves into place cards at each setting.”

“The dining table’s feminine design and intimate ambiance truly encompassed the essence of the day. With ‘sweet as pie’ mini desserts and mint julep libations, our detail choices played up the southern charm wedding theme. Overall, this wedding inspiration is perfect for any couple wanting a sophisticated, clean wedding full of effortless romance and delicate charm!”
