I beamed from ear to ear when I first laid eyes on these images; this wedding is right up my street, and thanks to Jo Photo I get to share these with all of you. Elizabeth and Jess were married in the Spring at Maryville, Tennessee and they decided on an afternoon tea theme for their wedding day.
There are so many intricate details captured in this day to be ‘oohed and ahhed’ over.
I’ll pass you over to Jo to tell us more about the day.
All things vintage
Elizabeth and her mother, Leslie, planned a small intimate 2 o’clock afternoon wedding with English adornments to include personalized doilies under each plate with each guest’s name on them, lumps of sugar and vintage decorative tea bags. The bride’s veil was hand made by the groom’s mother, and there were antique hankerchiefs for ‘happy tears’ during the wedding ceremony.
The guest seating cards were hand made on vintage paper and hung on twine across antique wooden screen doors. The reception catering included scones, marmalades, delectable tea sandwiches, and hot tea provided in vintage tea pots. The bride and groom’s teapot was hand painted by the bride’s grandmother.
Jam for everyone
An assortment of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry jams were favors for the guests – the berries were hand picked by the bride’s mother and father months before the wedding, canned in their home, and personalized for Elizabeth’s wedding day!
