It’s often difficult to get in the holiday spirit here in the South. There’s just something inherently strange about going to the beach in the weeks leading up to the dead of winter, the ocean the only frigid thing in sight. While holiday-themed lattes and the rare blustery cold days certainly help, it’s gorgeous decor and event design that really kick us into Christmas mode. A team of incredibly talented Georgia wedding pros came together to make our glittery, festive dreams come true. Led by planner Jessica Marie Patton of Southern Sophistication Designs, a wedding planner in Atlanta, Georgia, this inspiration shoot managed to evoke the holiday cool-girl in us all. The hand calligraphed stationery suite, designed by Sherry Beauchamp of Sweet E’s Celebrations, dazzled in a striking gold ink on cranberry paper. The bride shined just as bright in a slinky beaded gown by Jovani, from High Maintenance Dress Boutique in Athens, GA. Keeping in the spirit of the holiday, “guests” enjoyed festive cranberry cocktails around the tall Christmas tree, appropriately decorated with ‘Mr.’ and ‘Mrs.’ ornaments from Kate Aspen. Andie Freeman Photography, a photographer in Athens, Georgia captured every holiday sparkle at The Vines Mansion, a private residence wedding venue in Loganville, GA.
