Vintage Savannah Wedding // Meredith + Mike

Today’s romantic Savannah, GA wedding is filled to the brim with vintage details and sweet personal touches! The bride and groom held an intimate ceremony in the quaint Washington Square Park. The bride collected vintage handkerchief’s for guests to use during the ceremony and gifted unique vintage purses to each of her bridesmaids. The couple started their reception on a high note as musicians lead the entire wedding through the historic treelined streets of downtown Savannah. Enjoy all of the images below captured by Jade and Matthew Take Pictures of this intimate and thoughtful wedding!

Wedding Style // Magnolia Decor

Magnolia’s are such an iconic Southern flower. So much so that the classic large blooms are the state flower of Mississippi and Louisiana! I love that magnolia’s are popping up in weddings from table decor to chandeliers and even single blooms as bouquets. There is something so elegant about a magnolia blossom and their glossy leaves are the perfect addition to any table scape!

Teal Island House Wedding // Jessica + Kris

With a color palette of teal and bright pops of pink and coral this Island House wedding on the bank of the Stono River in Charleston, SC will have you feeling so cheery you’d swear it was still summer! Pure Luxe Bride designed this coastal affair which features one of my favorite wedding elements, a unified pattern. This couple wove a teal and white pattern throughout their table runners, bar panels, and pole ties. Jennifer Bearden Photography captured all of the details including fresh berry treats from Sugar Bakeshop and homemade jams from the mother of the bride.

DIY // Gold Leaf Pumpkins


Fall decor has a way of always looking the same. There’s usually a lot of burlap, brown and plaid involved. With gold so popular this season I decided to create a twist on traditional fall decor by creating gold leaf pumpkins. These pumpkins are super easy to make and would make great place settings for a Fall wedding or even Thanksgiving. Read on to see how I created these little golden pumpkins!

You will need gold leaf sheets, adhesive, sealer, a small sponge brush and a small bristle brush. Here is a great starter kit I found online.

Take a damp washcloth and clean and dry your pumpkins. Let them fully dry before applying the adhesive or it will not stick. While you’re waiting for your pumpkins to dry, create a workspace by laying down newspaper. I learned the hard way that gold leaf gets a bit messy!


Apply the adhesive to your pumpkins by using the sponge brush. Let them dry for 1-2 minutes. The glue used for gold leaf is very watery. If you let it dry for a few minutes it gets a bit tacky, which helps the foil stick.


Apply the gold foil sheets to your pumpkins. I find it works best to just use your bare hands as rubber gloves get tricky and then you have a whole big sticky mess! Try to apply the entire sheet at once to your pumpkin. If you try to apply in small pieces the gold leaf tends to crumple on itself and you end up with a messy looking glob.


Pumpkin_06Once you are happy with your gold application use the bristle brush to gently apply sealer. Some of the gold leaf will come off at this point… but don’t freak out! That’s part of the charm and “look” of gold leaf. While your sealer is drying the gold will dull in color but this comes back once everything is all dry!Pumpkin_07

Happy Weekend // Around The Web

Wow I cannot believe it’s October already! Where did the summer go? I’m heading up to Washington D.C. this weekend and am looking forward to seeing the changing leaves. That’s the one thing I really enjoy about Fall and miss living in a beach town. One thing I hate about Fall? It’s almost time to don a wetsuit… yikes! Enjoy the weekend!friday

Classic Coral Southern Wedding // Kelly + Jesse

I can’t think of a more perfect way to start the first day of October than with this classic Charleston wedding at Lowndes Grove. Ooh! Events created a relaxed yet formal affair along the Ashley River. Bridesmaids were dressed in coral with pops of coral woven in throughout the wedding details. A luxe bedswing and fun scalloped umbrellas provided space for guests to lounge under. You won’t want to miss any of the images below from Paige Winn Photo of this classic Charleston affair!
