This summer was rain, rain, rain. I have grown up in Georgia and cannot remember another time when we had so much rain! So as Julia and Luke’s wedding day approached I was getting pretty nervous about their outdoor ceremony. Luckily, mother-nature was on our side and we squeezed in a beautiful ceremony outside in The Trolley Barn’s garden and were inside with twenty minutes to spare before the downpour. Whew!
Inside The Trolley Barn, Julia and Luke loved the natural beauty of the venue and accenuated it with rustic decor and wildflowers. My favorite personal touch they added was their “table names”. Each table had a trail name on it that Julia and Luke had hiked together. And the wedding party table was labeled ‘Great Rocky Mountains” where they went to hike on their honeymoon! How cute is that?!

Sayako and Jimmy
I had been dying to help plan a wedding at Montaluce Winery. The grounds there are just unbelievable! So I was so glad to meet Sayako and begin about a year long relationship of wedding planning. I was even happier to see these photos from Studio B Photography that captured the beauty of the day so well! (Yes, I am talking about the bride too!) Most of Sayako’s family flew in from Japan and stayed at the Villas at Montaluce, which is where the bride and groom also spent their first night together as husband and wife. I remember talking to Sayako at our first meeting and the feel that she was going for was “romantic”. With a fire roaring in the fireplace, dinner by candlelight and the view of the vineyards….I don’t see how she could have picked a better place!!

I wish we could see more of these in bouquets. Succulents are so clean and their design adds such a cool element to a bouquet or arrangement. You can use succulents for southern theme decor or even in a modern museum! You don’t even think about fun stuff like this unless you are working with a super creative florist, like Le Bonne Fleur or Blossoms Atlanta, here in Atlanta, Georgia!! Some are even tiny enough to go in a boutonniere. Or, what about favors, placed at each place setting? That’s definitely something that would be enjoyed long after the wedding!
