Elizabeth + Si | Merrimon-Wynne Wedding

If I had to choose one word to describe Elizabeth and Si’s wedding, it would be magic. The sparkle of all of the twinkling lights in collaboration with the beauty of the holiday season, a stunning bride in a Vera Wang dress, a crisp and clean color palette (green, gold and white!) and flawless flowers made this wedding one for the books!
Elizabeth is a classic southern beauty.  Charming, sophisticated and decisive (a wedding planners dream!).  She knew she wanted a Holiday inspired fete, but without anything “kitschy Christmas.” She chose the classically southern statement foliage, magnolia, to highlight on her save the dates and throughout the reception.  Meristem Floral created a magnolia skirt for the cake table (cake from Edible Art), a beautiful magnolia swag in the middle of the dance floor bar and 6’ hanging magnolia arrangement over the cocktail hour bar.  YES!
Guests were guided through the main house where a Christmas tree filled with childhood ornaments greeted guests.  The ornaments had been gifts of Elizabeth’s mother to her over the years.  We loved this sweet sentiment. Guests then made their way through a tunnel of twinkle lights (by Get Lit) into the equally-twinkly tent.  The highlight of the tent were 2 giant 9’ trees in the center of custom built round banquettes from Themeworks Creative.  The trees were dripping with orchids and hanging votives, it was pure magic!
Signature Drinks, appropriately named The Elizaberry and the Si-Lent Night (Elizabeth’s handiwork!) were obviously a huge hit among wedding guests.  Rocky Top did nothing short of perfection as belly’s were filled at food stations that were as easy on the eyes as they were on the taste-buds!
The day started with smiles and laughs and ended the same way as Elizabeth and Si left as husband and wife. In between there were many happy tears, lots of awe-struck moments, a few surprises (ahem, drum solo by the groom!) and a whole lot of merriment! We could not be more excited to share the highlights of the night with you captured by the talented Amanda and Grady.
Happy marriage Elizabeth and Si, We love you!!
