Ashley & Ryan’s southern inspired wedding from this past Fall is on the blog today! Complete with mason jars and a big white dress, this classic ceremony and reception was perfect for our charming couple. We loved the southern feel Ashley & Ryan incorporated into their big day, and we can’t wait to share the details and pictures with you all!!

Friends and family gathered at a traditional church to witness the “I dos”. It was a beautiful day in early October and the weather was perfect! Ashley had on the most gorgeous gown and she was truly stunning as she walked down the aisle. She looked like a princess from a fairytale in her long, ball-gown style white dress! After that, guests headed to cocktail hour and outdoor reception at Kingston Plantation and Inn.

The plantation is a beautiful venue for a wedding. The inside contains fireplaces, antiques, fine art, and more to give off an old historic atmosphere. Outside, there are beautiful gardens, mini horses roaming the grounds, and an amazing view of the river. During cocktail hour, guests were served drinks in mason jars with white and purple striped straws. They mixed and mingled on the planation’s back lawn overlooking the river before heading into the reception tent for introductions, dinner, and dancing.

And now for one of our favorite aspects of wedding planning…the details! Ashley & Ryan’s color scheme was purple and silver, and each table had a silver tablecloth with purple napkins to add a pop of color. Their centerpieces included branches with crystals hanging from them and lighted branches, so there was plenty of sparkle as it started getting darker. The lights strung along the tent and purple uplighting provided the perfect environment for this outside night reception. And we can’t forget to mention the cake! It was four layers of all white icing and beautiful flower detail which fit their traditional style perfectly. They even made sure to include a little bit of Ryan’s personality with a fish groom’s cake! Each guest was given candied pecans as a wedding favor to remember the night before sending off Ashley & Ryan with a sparkler exit.

We loved the classy country feel of this wedding and the amazing couple that were married that night. POC loved working with Ashley & Ryan to plan such a great wedding full of family, friends, fun, and Southern charm!
