Whimsical Boho Wedding Inspiration – Botanical Garden & Bamboo Farm

When the girls at Ivory & Beau tell you a story about a nerdy botanist falling in love with a fairy wood nymph, you know you’ve made the right friends. You may be thinking, how silly, but I thought, how genius! I love the idea of wedding decor inspiration coming from a passion for science, botany and plants. Almost as much as I love playing off the whimsical nature of a wood nymph. Combine the two and you get magic.

Special thanks to Ruffled for featuring this shoot – see it here.

Boho Whimsical Botanical Garden Wedding Savannah Athens Atlanta Wedding PhotographerWe decided that the perfect location would be our very own Coastal Georgia Botanical Garden in Savannah – they have a bamboo farm (eeek!) and actually play host to weddings and events.

Ivory & Beau made this adorable invitation suite inspired by plants, wildlife and the table of elements – I love the witty language on the RSVP card. Proof that you CAN make great DIY invites and that they can be lighthearted and fun. Set the stage for the theme and feel of your wedding with you invites!Bohemian Botanical Garden Wedding Inspiration Invitations Savannah Atlanta Wedding PhotographerBotanical Garden Inspiration Bamboo Forest Bohemian Blue Hair BrideBoho Whimsical Botanical Garden Wedding Savannah Athens Atlanta Wedding PhotographerAs you all know, I am a complete sucker for a flower crown. If I had my way, I would don fresh flowers on my head on a daily basis. Colonial House of Flowers shares my love for them so she knew to make this beauty for our bride.Boho Whimsical Botanical Garden Wedding Savannah Athens Atlanta Wedding PhotographerBohemian Science Botanical Garden Wedding Inspiration Savannah Atlanta Athens PhotographerBohemian Science Botanical Garden Wedding Inspiration Savannah Atlanta Athens PhotographerBohemian Botanical Garden Wedding Inspiration Pallet Live Wall Escort Cards BouquetIvory & Beau made this vertical living wall out of a palette – find the easy DIY instructions on Ruffled.

Something like this would also look stellar over a dessert table or even hung as party of your ceremony set up.

Bstreet Salon – Fashion – Savannah, GA

Fashion photography makes my heart go pitter patter and its what I continuously look to for inspiration.  So I always jump at the chance to shoot for local hair and makeup artists and designers to keep things fun, fresh and sexy.  BStreet Salon is one such business that I’ve created a fantastic relationship with from doing weddings, inspiration shoots and fashion shows together.  They are one classy bunch and their work is phenomenal.  Paying them a visit in their beautiful historic loft space on Broughton Street will leave you feeling pampered and amazing.  Naturally, I was happy to play with them for an afternoon at 24e (an interior design firm and home furnishings boutique) to give them updated photos for their site and storefront. Yay!

Ashley & Brian – travel themed engagement – Railroad Museum

I always get excited when clients come to me with a specific idea for their engagement session – especially when they want to do something that’s representative of their personalities or favorite things to do.  Ashley is a theater teacher and these two love travel so it was only fitting to create a romantic, old time story for their engagement session.  Lucky us, the Railroad Museum in Savannah was the perfect setting.

Rock n Roll Wedding Inspiration – Dollhouse Productions – Savannah

If you don’t already know about Dollhouse Productions in Savannah, put it on your radar folks, because its kind of the coolest.  Recording studio by day, music venue/art gallery/performance space by night, this industrial beauty can also play host to your wedding.  A super unique space when it comes to the usual fair in Savannah, French Knot Studios and I jumped at the chance to create a styled wedding shoot to help get the word out.  Inspired by its edgy vibe, we wanted to create wedding inspiration that was part rock n roll and part gypsy/boho and what we came up with is something I find extremely beautiful and totally cool.  What do you think!?

Jessica & Tim – Georgia Southern University engagement

Jessica & Tim met at a tailgate with friends while attending Georgia Southern University.  Being huge GSU fans, it only made sense we meet there for their engagement session.   I had no idea how lovely the campus was so  I had an incredible time exploring it with these two cuties!  I cannot wait for their sweet ceremony later this year at the campus’ “Sweetheart Circle.”
