Reminiscing on last August when this lakeside wedding took place at one of the prettiest spots on the water. Katie and Charles said I do at one of my favorite little chapels on Lake Martin then danced the night away under a beautiful tent with family and friends. I loved getting to team up with the gals at Mariée Ami and play in the prettiest palettes of pinks to create a Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer inspired design. Learn more about the flowers chosen and the creation of all the pretty floral designs on the wedding day.
Collins and Michael were married the 10th of June (the reason they picked the date is as sweet as their five-tiered cake) in Dothan, Alabama. Take a look into Collins and Michael’s beautiful wedding and see why we enjoyed working with this precious couple so much!
It’s pretty normal for you to find my nose deep in any floral related book I can get my hands on. There is something so fascinating to me about the intricacies of flowers. From the smells, textures, shapes, patterns, colors, meanings, origins…I think ultimately it is seeing the Lord’s handiwork scattered across the earth with a gentle reminder that sometimes the most beautiful of things take time and usually grow through a whole lot of dirt and that out of patience and grace, we to can flourish from the messes of everyday life.
Here at Southern Posies, we LOVE working with other creatives on fun and fresh projects. When Lauren Kendrick, owner of the cutest little monogram shop, Sassy Biscuit, gave us a shout to contribute to her beautifully-southern styled shoot, we just couldn’t resist. Lauren was inspired for this shoot by everything she adores about the South, from our beautiful plantations, to the Spanish moss hanging from the trees, to heirloom monograms. Our gal Reese Witherspoon said it best when she said, “My rule is if it’s not moving — monogram it!” Together with some awesome vendors, Lauren’s vision of Contemporary Southern Elegance came to life on a sweet spring afternoon.

When sweet Elisabeth, with Elisabeth and Butter, contacted us about a super fun shoot with Draper James of course our southern (and Reese Witherspoon!) loving hearts did not skip a beat in saying YES. With honor and respect for family and heritage, Draper James ranks high on our list with likeminded ideals of hospitality, grace and charm. To boast those southern principles loud and proud we channeled our inner Shelby (Steel Magnolias, friends) and went with a signature blush and bashful palette.
