*A Note from Shauna Autry Photography
“Before Mara and Andrew's wedding I only had a chance to meet with the bride. When I arrived at Mercury Hall on the wedding day Mara's sister approached me and said, “Just wait until you see Mara and Andrew together they are so loving towards one another.” She was absolutely right and you could feel the love in this vintage inspired DIY wedding. The bride and groom made the day so smooth, special, and laid back. The wedding had a very vintage feel with it's neutral color palette that included creams, grays, and light pink. The flowers were simple and white and displayed in elegant table settings made using vintage tea kettles, books, and candle holders. The wedding was filled with touching surprised from the bride to the groom, including a vintage car for transportation, a flash mob, and a pancake snack. The whole event made me feel like I was in the novel The Great Gatsby, with a little flair. It was simple, heartfelt, and beautifully put together.”

Feelin Kinda Sunday– I dont know about you, but I am loving the idea of a reception venue that has gorgeous Baptist church influences! Mercury Hall seems like a unique location allowing you to have that slightly naughty feel of partying in a church! From the color block stained windows to the vaulted white wood ceiling, I have a crush on Mercury Hall!
White On White– While white is most certainly the signature of the classic bride, this wedding in particular has a sweet white finger print throughout. Starting with our lovely bride who is indeed beautifully styled in a slink white Nicole Miller gown with complimentary white birdcage veil, we next move on to the simple white florals that perfectly punctuate this sweet fete. Mercury Hall's white wood space perfectly fits into this white washed theme while the white on white cake brings the whole neutral feel home. White is not just innocent, but beautiful.
Easy Breezy BM Style– There is something about the overall feel of Mara's girl's that bring a real well styled casual feel. The girls, while looking absolutely lovely in their dresses, have a comfortable happy sense about them & it shows all the way to their bright smiles. Dressing your girls in ensembles that make them happy too leads to an even better wedding day all around!
