When Adrienne Page sent me these photos, I could not wait to share them with you! Not only did Sallie Gray and Jason’s September wedding take place in a gorgeous location, but it was designed by Tara Guerard of Soiree. It was a day full of Southern tradition and special details – many of them inspired by the bride’s eyelet dress – and Adrienne captured them all beautifully.

 Guests received pails of goodies, including bottled water and cookies, in their hotel rooms. The guests favors, delicate hand-blown drinking glasses, were also packaged in these personalized pails.

 Sallie Gray wore an eyelet dress by Carolina Herrera, her bouquet was wrapped in eyelet, and even her shoes echoed the eyelet motif.

 For the ceremony, Sallie Gray wore her sister’s veil – something borrowed. Umbrellas were made available for guests in case of rain – or shine!

 To continue the motif, votives were wrapped in eyelet fabric.

 In lieu of a guest book, guests could write on notecards that matched the rest of the wedding stationery, and pin them onto a white bulletin board. Each tier of the cake was a different flavor: butter cake with raspberry filling, lemon cake with lemon curd, orange cake with triple sec, and butter cake with pistachio.
