Part 2: Becky +Jon at Southall Eden
Continued from Part 1... The celebration began with an intimate hill-side ceremony and quickly transitioned into a good old fashion hoe down with the help of the wonderfully talented Hog Slop String band.
There were lots of personal touches that were especially meaningful to the couple. The groom’s sister designed the invitations and programs. A friend of the bride made custom burlap runners for her tabletops and we used some of Becky’s own collection of vintage containers mixed with Southall Eden’s milk glass collection for the centerpieces.
We used a more contemporary mix of flowers such as pink Protea and assorted succulents with farm wedding classics such as dahlias, thistle and butter stock to provide lots of color and texture throughout the property. One of my favorite details was the home-made relish that Becky bottled for favors. This was an old family recipe (the original copy of the recipe was on display in a frame with the favors) and it is personal touches like this that make any wedding celebration even more special.
Thanks again to Adele Reding Photography for the gorgeous images, Southall Eden for the lovely location and The Enchanted Florist for the fabulous florals.
