Bridal Luncheon Party Inspiration | Dresser Palmer House

June 5, 2013

As most of you know, I have the huge honor of being part of the upcoming NOT Wedding event in Charleston on June 13th.  If you don’t know, then make haste and familiarize yourself with the coolest wedding show around.  Tickets are still available so if you are engaged (or may be soon…) go ahead and snag one – you will be treated to a live renewal of vows and an awesome party – the best part is that you get to watch all the wedding vendors in action and then go talk to them in person – its THE BEST way to find what vendors are for you!

One of my responsibilities was to organize a styled shoot to showcase the talent behind The NOT Wedding Charleston and to offer brides some inspiration.  Its the extra responsibility I most wanted because styled shoots are my favorite thing to do.  Lucky for me, I got it!  And lucky for me, some of my favorite people to play with are also doing the event!  Audrey of French Knot Studios and Tori of Ever Thine Vintage are really to thank for making all of our ideas a reality.  So, get ready to feast your eyes on some lavender and herb themed loveliness!

Miss Wyolene designed the sweet invitation.  In case you can’t read the clever play on words – it reads “It’s thyme to celebrate our friend Rosemary Marie on her wedding day because she’s a big dill.”  RSVP: “Kindly lettuce know if you’re cumin.” (hehehehehehe)Savannah Fashion Wedding PhotographerSavannah Fashion Wedding PhotographerI had the three best models a girl could ask for – a huge thank you to Sterling, Jill and Kat!Savannah Fashion Wedding PhotographerThe “Oh Happy Day” banner and all the cute little flags were lovingly crafted by Liddabits Design Shop.Savannah Fashion Wedding PhotographerSavannah Fashion Wedding PhotographerAll of the china, silver and doilies were borrowed from one of my favorite resources – Lillian’s China.Savannah Fashion Wedding PhotographerPlace settings were trimmed with rosemary and the name card vases were filled with lavender.
