A Bright + Cheery Southern Soirée

With sweet snaps from Shannon Ford Photography, this love story transcends the Mason-Dixon Line. At a national art conference, a New York City Art Gallery Manager (and our bride to be,) Alexis, was swept off her feet by her dapper Southern beau.

With a wedding in the works for the end of June, this Savannah soiree is all kinds of fun, fabulous, and full of our favorite thing - color! Design Studio South {AES} led the planning and design and with florals by A to Zinnias, there's really something special about this girly gathering!

From the team, "Alexis has been planning the perfect modern wedding in this city rich in history and now the final touch is to get her bride tribe in place. What better way than to celebrate with a Southern soirée bridal brunch, she thought!"

Full of liveliness and laughter and with a bright bold citrus color palette at play, everything about this styled shoot was just perfect! So let's take a look at how it all unfolded, shall we?
