The glamour and elegance of the 1920’s comes alive in this Gatsby era wedding inspiration from C. Hope Photography. From the blush cut out gown to the trailing feather bouquet, this shoot is everything a vintage glam lover dreams of. They even have an old Model T for the getaway car! And you know I’m obsessed with the greenery covered couple’s chairs!

One wedding venue option I bet you’ve never thought of: Main Street! A whole city block of Sumter, South Carolina was blocked off for this romantic Southern wedding captured by Megan Manus Photography. The long row of farm house tables down the center of the street is such a wow factor and unexpected fun for guests!
My wedding day was truly a dream come true. The romantic deep reds mixed with rose pinks and golds made for the most beautiful fall decor. My dress was a vintage inspired lace gown that went well with the bohemian/romantic style that I was looking for.
I wrapped my great great Grandmother’s handkerchief around my bouquet and my Mother in Law gave me a beautiful sapphire and diamond ring which was a gift from my Father in Law to her on one of their first anniversaries to wear as my something blue.
The most important things to the two of us while planning were the food and the band! We wanted everyone who attended to have the night of their lives and enjoy fantastic food as we love to travel and try foods from everywhere.
I could not have asked for a more perfect location than downtown Sumter SC to hold the reception. The newly renovated outdoor venue was picture perfect with exposed brick and bistro lights adding the perfect ambiance for the evening.
My favorite parts of the day where seeing Ryan for the first time when I walked down the aisle, and our first dance. Celebrating with family and friends was the best part!

Vintage and minimalism meet in this charming white wedding captured by Casey Green Photography. With a historic courthouse as their backdrop, this couple set the scene for a beautiful wedding filled with meaningful details and a simple vintage touch. I love the cake display on the grand piano! Such a dreamy setting!
We spent many of our dating years centered around the Decatur area, so we felt right at home choosing our wedding venue in Decatur Square. My husband and I don’t have a very conventional style, but we both wanted a traditional white wedding. We chose accents of soft grey, navy, and a rich green. The all white marble ballroom was a perfect canvas to build on.
My mother used the skirt of her wedding dress to create pocket squares embroidered with the date for all of the men in the bridal party. She also took apart her dress bodice to create a beaded bag for me. My family also follows the lucky tradition of putting a handed-down sixpence in the bride’s shoe.
The ability to choose our own vendors and have free reign with decor was the most important consideration to us while planning. We visited so many venues that forced couples into using their cakes, their decor, their vendors, florals, etc. and we wanted something uniquely us. We felt we couldn’t have the day we wanted with so many limitations. The Historic Courthouse in Decatur allowed us the freedom to have a wedding that felt like “us.”
My husband and I honeymooned in Japan, so we had our guests write notes in a book about Japan instead of leaving just their names in a traditional guest book. I also created the table numbers out of vintage Japanese postcards.
The best part was marrying my best friend! We were so blessed to be surrounded by such loving and supportive family members and friends. (They’re also very patient – we dated nine years before we got married!) The day was more perfect than I could have ever imagined.
