This Mississippi Bride Brought the Outdoors In With Rustic Touches
Caroline and Clinton’s nature-inspired wedding day was nothing short of perfect. From enchanting wooden details to graceful greenery mixed with all-white blooms, the space these two created could easily make you forget you were actually inside.
“Clinton is a huge outdoorsman, and having grown up on a ranch, we knew we wanted our big day to reflect our love for the outdoors,” said Caroline. “Due to the cool spring temperatures we decided to bring the outside inside and enhance our rustic venue with a ton of greenery, branches, pops of crisp white flowers and dim lighting. These elements created the perfect simple, yet elegant, backdrop for the most special night.”

Things That Only Happen At Southern Weddings
Most weddings have an excited couple, more than a few loved ones, a grand send-off, and an 'I do' kiss – but Southerners have added their own charm to wedding traditions. We've mastered the art of soul food, we usually have fantastic 75˚ (enviable, really) weather, and our wedding receptions are full of syrupy drawls. If you find yourself at nuptials below the Mason-Dixon, you'll find some extra-special moments: seersucker suits, a buried bottle of bourbon, and a wedding cake with charms baked into it. Although very central to our region, these special Southern wedding traditions are celebrated for very specific reasons. We choose seersucker because it'll hold off the strong Southern heat. We bury bourbon so that we won't have to handle so much of that strong Southern heat. And, we pull charms so that our futures will be as lucky and prosperous as the bride and groom's.
