Vintage at Carnton

This was a beautiful wedding at Carnton Plantation in June. The colors were white, yellow, navy. The bride went with a really lovely vintage theme for her wedding - pulled off by wedding Planner Meredith Zeller of Bridal Blueprints. There are photos from my camera and from Ulmer Studios. Those from Ulmer Studios are marked.

One of the things I loved about this wedding was the use of heirloom brooches and pins in the bride's bouquet. The flowers for the bride's bouquet were super simple - just white hydrangeas - but the addition of the brooches made it stunning!
LinkThe bridesmaids carried white hydrangea, Queen Anne's lace, craspedia, and cotton witha little curly willow twisted over top. I LOVE the addition of the cotton.
Check out the dresses! Anthropoligie I think? Amazing.
The men's boutonnieres were cotton and craspedia.
The bride also had two memorial arrangements for family memebers that had passed away. They were used both at the ceremony and reception.
The centerpieces were made in containers the bride decoupaged with pictures of her and the groom and newspapers.
I went with hydrangeas, cotton, Queen Anne's Lace, and yellow cremones to keep with the vintage feel. Meredith did a lot of custom work for the reception decor - a lot of mason jars, fabric flowers, etc. She really has an eye for it all. Below is the sweetheart table.
I have to include pictures of the grounds. Here is one of the formal garden. Beautiful!
And the marriage tree as sen from the garden. Every wedding I've ever done (except the one when it rained cats and dogs) has been under the shady branches of this gloriously old tree. It's probably 5 feet across? It is so romantic and sweet.
