The deep south is a terrific place, filled with so much soul, heart & magic. Add a splash of retro 1920's into the mix and you can almost smell that late summer night whisky sweat! When this delicious treat from Georgia wedding photographer Elle Puckett Photographer hit my inbox, I knew I was in for something special. Great Gatsby inspired sessions have certainly been running wild of late, and why shouldn't they will all the glitz, glam and sparkle. What I really appreciate however about this particular session is that it is less Gatsby and much more 1920's art deco goes southern style, complete with all the sophistication and charm one would expect! There is some real styling magic happening, starting with the amazing wood house frame stage, beautifully dressed to take on a sultry night club persona. Proper southern Magnolia blooms lie around every corner, while drippy greens & crystals provide that really earthy moss like feel. Sweet heart tables line the stage, where our couple gets cozy as the sunsets to listen to the band, even having a musical moment of their own. While the decor is utterly divine & transcending, the fashion is completely aces. Our bride wonderfully embodies a fashion vein of a time long ago, wearing the perfect drop-waist lace hemline dress from Ruche and stunning veil headpiece from Violet Bells Bridal. Hair & makeup perfectly complete the package, buying our ticket for a ride back in time. The groom, not to be left in the dust, wears an iconic white tux in that proper southern gentleman style! There is so much about this lovely southern fete that I simply want to be there! From the magnolia blooms to the dark woods, this treat is a refreshing look on all things art deco and 20's!
