Intimate And Colorful Soho South Cafe Wedding *

With mismatched colorful chairs, bohemian rugs, and an autumn color palette, Amanda and Kyle’s Soho South Cafe wedding was colorful, trendy, and a Pinner’s dream. This venue was the only one they looked at, and it was love at first sight. Not only is the venue both stunning and unique with its high ceilings, large windows, and strung lights, but Ivory & Beau didn’t shy away from adding beautiful colors and textures to the space. 

This colorful day also included bridesmaids in perfectly mismatched dresses, a beautiful embroidered bridal denim jacket, and terracotta pot seating charts. We’re definitely suckers for a good bohemian wedding, and this one is one for the books. Get ready to add some inspiration to your mood board with photos captured by Mackensey Alexander

The Wedding:

Soho South Cafe, Savannah, Georgia

Beautiful and Safe Celebration

I’m just so proud that it all came together as perfectly as it did despite everything going on in 2020. We were so stressed about having the wedding and we ended up having to decrease the guest list significantly. It was beautiful, safe, and perfect, and I wouldn’t change a thing!

A Soho South Cafe Wedding

Honestly, it was the only venue we looked at. I saw some photos on Instagram and knew I wanted to check it out. We went and it was perfect. It really fit the vibe we were going for.

Personalizing Their Ceremony

Our officiant was my best friend. We recently moved to Savannah and didn’t know anyone locally yet that we felt comfortable asking to officiate our ceremony. Asking my best friend ended up being the best decision because it was personalized and so special.

DIY Party Favors

We had DIY party favors for all the guests. I ordered a bunch of 2-inch succulents and cacti then planted them in small terracotta pots. My mom and I painted to match the wedding. It was so cute and I know a lot of my friends and family still have theirs at home.

Gorgeous Airbnb Jekyll Island Micro Wedding *

Gorgeous Airbnb Jekyll Island Micro Wedding *

A sunset beach portrait session, a memorable drive in a vintage convertible, and a reception so rowdy that the cops were called. Lindsey and Drew’s Jekyll island micro wedding was unforgettable, to say the least. With the help of friends and family, the couple planned a DIY wedding at Jekyll Island United Methodist Church before partying the night away in a small yet lively reception at an Airbnb.

Using deep orange and red sunset-inspired decor they ordered online, along with florals arranged by Gray Harper, Lindsey and her sister transformed the backyard into a space where the beach met the desert for a unique COVID-conscious experience. So whether you’re looking to host your own creative micro “I do’s,” or you just want a little backyard wedding inspo, these portraits captured by Ben and Vicky Photography are sure to inspire.

Why A Jekyll Island Micro Wedding

We knew we wanted something special that represented our relationship while also being close enough to our guests after both of us living out of state for seven years. Jekyll Island was a destination wedding idea while still being home–an adventure while still holding nostalgia. It was a place we attempted a camping trip in 90+ degree weather one summer when we first started dating in college. It was familiar and still held its own mysterious magic we had yet to fully uncover. 

A Memorable Drive In The Convertible

Driving home from the beach in our rented convertible, my head resting on Drew’s lap, and the star canopy the only thing in sight. We reflected on the day and took in the surrealness of the moment. Just as I started to feel a dip in the overwhelming emotions of the day, I sat up to see our whole family with sparklers waiting for us at the front of our Airbnb backyard reception. The song I picked to play, “Bittersweet Symphony,” carried over the sparks. Tears filled my eyes with an appreciation of our loved ones there who helped us make this day special and at how far we had come to get to this point of bliss. It was the perfect song for the perfect moment that will last forever.

Putting Together A DIY Wedding With The Help of Family

Our wedding was one big DIY project! We were originally supposed to have our wedding reception at Jekyll Island Club Resort, but due to COVID, we decided to cut down our wedding to our immediate family members. We ended up having a backyard Airbnb reception with our own setup, string light production included. I had our decor delivered to my parent’s house in Georgia. My sister and I laughed with relief while we unboxed decor—everything was what I had envisioned. I can’t thank her enough for helping this vision become a reality!

Getting The Police Involved  

Our reception got the cops called on us, which really had us laughing since it was a gathering of under 15 people–seniors included! We had to unexpectedly move back to our other Airbnb with a pool that was closer to the beach. Not too shabby! Our night ended with a dance party by the pool, beach walk, and a family huddle that we’ll all treasure for our lifetime.

Elegant Savannah Wedding at Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum *

Elegant Savannah Wedding at Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum *

Love is in the details, especially at this elegant Savannah wedding. By keeping it simple, minimalistic, and elegant, Kristin and Alex let the city where they fell in love do the talking. They added their own personal flair to their wedding by sharing a unique wedding favor—fresh local ground coffee bags to keep the party going. 

Every inch of this wedding coordinated perfectly—the wedding invitations, the bridal bouquet, the green trees of Savannah, and the table decor. Savannah and Greg from Authentic Creative captured this beautiful ceremony so keep on scrolling to see minimalism at its finest!

Simply Elegant Colors for this Maritime Museum Wedding

We used black and white with shades of grey for our color palette. This was honestly one of the hardest decisions to make because we do love color.  Originally, we considered a bolder direction, but to achieve the timeless look we were going for the choice became obvious. We were able to get creative with some of the grey shades we used. And honestly, going with this color scheme ended up making a lot of other decisions much simpler.

Memorable First Looks and Teary Eyes 

The most memorable part of the day was definitely the first look. It was filled with the biggest emotions of the day for us—it really doesn’t get any better than that feeling. Suddenly any lingering stress completely washed away and all that we felt was pure joy! I particularly loved seeing my older sister—and maid of honor— bawling her eyes out while our good friend and groomsmen offered her his handkerchief. Our photographers, Savannah and Greg, coordinated everything perfectly.

Personalized and DIY’d Wedding Touches

We DIY’d a good portion of our wedding. Utilizing our graphic design backgrounds, we designed our entire wedding suite—down to the map of Savannah with a list of all our favorite spots. We also designed all of our signs, built the frames, removed labels from 100 wine bottles for table decor (which was quite fun), created our own personalized coffee bags for wedding favors—the list goes on! We spent time on the projects because we wanted it all to look as professional as possible. It was worth it to us because we loved the time being creative and building the day together.

Wedding Advice from the Bride 

Find inspiration and tips through other weddings but don’t compare. Now more than ever it is so easy to fall into the trap of trying to be the best bride with the most beautiful wedding. I’d encourage all couples to focus on the fact that you are marrying the person you love and this day is yours to create together, then it will be perfect!

Cozy Boho Backyard Wedding in Georgia *

Cozy Boho Backyard Wedding in Georgia *

With temperatures quickly dropping and fall calling our names, we love the idea of backyard weddings with bonfires, fuzzy blankets, and warm colors. Caitlin and Ryan’s cozy boho backyard wedding in Georgia was just that–and it’s giving us all the feels. With the help of expert planner Sweet Magnolia Weddings, the pair put together a laid-back day where they tied the knot in front of their closest friends and family.

The vintage rugs, neutral floral arrangements from The Funky Shack, and small teepees for the reception perfectly match the vibes of the surrounding forest. And Caitlin’s two-piece wedding dress from BHLDN and The Sentimentalist paired with the burgundy fur is the perfect mix of simple and elegant. We’re oh-so-glad that Junebug member Emily Battles Photography was there to capture the details of this intimate day and share it with us.

The Couple:

Caitlin and Ryan

The Wedding:

Tyron, Georgia

The Boho Backyard Wedding Vibe

We knew we wanted a laid-back, cozy, and all-inclusive atmosphere. We wanted people to be comfortable and enjoy themselves–including us. So, we made the space feel warm, energetic, and romantic.

Including Friends and Family in the Ceremony

Our ceremony was very personal because we asked one of our best friends–Brandon–to marry us. His words were heartfelt and sincere, which is what we wanted–to be surrounded by love. Instead of having a bridal party, Ryan and I both had our brothers stand by our side. Again, we wanted to be surrounded by love from our closest family and friends.

Shop similar furs: Faux Fur Stole ($72.99); Red Faux Fur Wedding Shawl ($59.99); Burgundy Red Faux Fur Wrap ($51.30)

A Diverse Wedding Menu

We had a giant charcuterie table open the entire night for guests to snack on. The main course was our favorite food, which is Indian from our favorite local Indian Restaurant. We wrapped the night up with Waffle House for guests to either eat while they were there or to take home with them.

Laid-Back Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse Wedding *

Laid-Back Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse Wedding *

Between the stellar bridal fashion—complete with star-covered boots—a ceremony in the thick of the forest, and live alpacas roaming the property, Ren and Ronnie’s laid-back Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse wedding was certainly one to remember. The cozy outdoor venue was the perfect spot for a non-traditional celebration full of love and laughs.

With the help of expert planner Harts and Petals, the couple created a day that spoke to their unique personalities. They kept decor and florals minimal, which allowed the magical treehouse to shine. While we could ramble on about how much we love these creative nuptials, we’ll let the photos taken by Junebug member Sophie Berard do all of the talking.

The Couple:

Ren and Ronnie

The Wedding:

Alpaca Treehouse, Atlanta, Georgia

Why an Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse Wedding

We wanted something memorable but cozy. The Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse was the first and only venue we toured. It was just unlike anything else on our list, and it felt really magical being there–as if we had been transported. It’s in the middle of the city but it feels secluded and private.

Wedding Day Advice From The Bride

The most important takeaway for us was that we were happy we gave ourselves permission to be selfish. Planning can be hard when you start to think about what others might want or be expecting. But if there’s one day in your life that revolves completely around you, it should be your wedding day.

An Unforgettable Wedding Favor From The Alpacas

The most memorable parts were probably the small speeches given by our friends and family before dinner, and maybe when one of the alpacas spit on Ren during photos. It was also supposed to rain all day–which we were dreading–but it didn’t actually start until we were safely in our treehouse for the night. We watched the storm from the skylight above our bed.
