Bridal Guide Magazine “Southern Comfort” Feature

One of our May 2011 weddings at Maple Grove Inn was recently featured in the May/June 2012 Bridal Guide Magazine (already on shelves).  We couldn’t be more thrilled to see this event published!  This Southern style vintage wedding had a lot of detail, unique flower arrangements, great use of props, and special touches at every turn.  We are proud of what our team created for Katie & Ashley’s special day.  Some of our favorite vendors were on board too; White Orchid Bridal, All Occassions Party Rentals, Ogle Entertainment & Ambiance Light Design, Milestone Motion Pictures, Magpies Bakery, and Fourth Year Studio.  All of our combined hard work was captured in some amazing (as always) photos by Tara of Dixie Pixel Photo.

Today we share the photos that were featured in the magazine along with a few that maybe you have not seen.  The full design album from this event can be viewed on our Facebook page by clicking on the photos below.

The bridesmaids bouquets included peach, pink, and ivory roses, tuberose and parrot tulips.

The boutonnieres featured spray garden roses and Dusty Miller.

The bridal bouquet was a lush group of pink peonies.

The altar area included our barn wood pedestals covered with a lace overlay and bow.  The barn wood frame highlighted a lace and ribbon design.

The table designs were all a bit different.  This one featured blue thistle & Queen Anne’s Lace.

This design included some old spice jars used as vases underneath a glass bell jar.

This barn wood box held a flower filled apothecary jar atop a bed of wheat grass.  A cotton flower adorned the front.

We also used wheat grass to line this brick wall with candle filled aqua Mason jars.

Here we added a basket with vintage books and a simple peony & thistle in a glass bottle.

An old glass window frame; we can find ways to incorporate just about anything!

We love to use vintage luggage cases too!

We also love to hang things!  Here we framed a grouping of flower filled glass bottles strung from a tree.

The photos above were captured by Tara of Dixie Pixel Photo, one of the best wedding photographers we know!  Without her attention to detail & design, we wouldn’t have had such wonderful photo results from this event.  Her work is frequently published and shared on well known wedding blogs because of her ability to capture emotion and tell a story through her work.  To view her album of this event (don’t miss the super sweet reception dress the bride wore designed by Dolly Couture!), go here:
