Styled shoot serves up a sophisticated and glamorous southern brunch in shades of pink and orange at the Warren House in Jonesboro, Georgia
A wedding reception held in the evening is always beautiful, but this styled shoot got our attention with how it turned the table, literally, and set it for an intimate wedding brunch.
The venue, an historic home built in 1840, inspired the main ingredients of southern charm and hospitality. The home’s stately feel allowed the bride and groom to have some fun and add a few dashes of modern elegance.
“The bride and groom are actually a real couple and both professional dancers,” the photographer said. “We were able to watch their beauty and chemistry come alive as they danced throughout the house.”
The bride wore a simple and sleeveless A-line dress with a plunging neckline. She dressed things up with a matching diamond necklace and earring set. The dangling earrings were the perfect match to her romantic and loosely pulled back low bun. Her groom looked sharp in a classic black tuxedo.
The groom’s boutonniere matched the bride’s bouquet which featured peach and ivory roses alongside more unique florals, like a King Protea and fern leaves.
Together, their sleek looks were a striking complement to the home’s black-and-white color scheme, as well as its signature southern landscape of magnolias, azaleas and ferns. Across from the house was a separate building with these amazing large sliding black and white wood barn doors featuring two greenery and white floral wreaths.
All that dancing worked up an appetite, so the shoot moved to its focal point: a sophisticated southern brunch. Shades of pink and orange, plus a touch sparkle, set the table from details to dishes.
“The space was decorated for beauty and simplicity,” the photographer said. “The place settings all had custom-made menus with gold embellishments for the guests.”
The guest table featured gold chargers with white plates and gold flatware. Each setting also included a pink gift box with a personalized sleeve that complemented the stationery’s design. A rose gold sequin runner and rose gold candle votives added that glam and sparkle.
A sweetheart table set for the bride and groom was dressed similarly, but with beaded gold-rimmed chargers and menus cut to fit inside them. Both tables featured floral centerpieces of blush, pink and cream roses, playing off the bride’s romantic bouquet.
“The florals were freshly cut and in abundance,” the photographer said. “We gave a mood board to our florist to pull beautiful tones to complement the bride’s skin tones.
”Beautiful colors also showed up in the brunch plates that included some southern favorites: stacks of pancakes topped with whipped cream and strawberries, orange and cranberry mimosas with orange wedges, bite-sized chicken and waffles, frosted cinnamon rolls, and gold-dusted pink macarons.
After a day of dancing and entertaining, our bride and groom headed inside to relax. Lounging in the parlor with décor that echoed the day’s theme, this real-life couple savored all the delicious details of their day.
