Georgia + Scott
OLD EDWARDS INN
HIGHLANDS, NC

I can’t recall working on another event where a family called upon three generations of experience to infuse so many sweet and personal details into their special occasion. Georgia, her mother and her dear grandmother whom she called “Mama Too” all had beautiful taste and a desire to create a lovely affair that felt intimate and classically Southern. Think delicious heirloom silver and linen, full, lush peonies, and incredible blooms indigenous to the Highland ecosystem with which they all share a mutual affection. To put it plainly, mission accomplished. The event was simply magical.
The entire design process was really fluid throughout planning. We knew the importance of a classic palate to the success of the desired look. Muted linens with a delicate sheen juxtaposed the beautiful family linens that were carefully draped over tables set with heirloom silver and hemstitch napkins.
Oakleaf Weddings collaborated to ensure regal silver accents, blooms and statement pieces that would be reminiscent of the mountain backdrop. All elements worked in conjunction to create a flawless, polished appearance. In truth, this celebration was a feast for the eyes from start to finish – including the food, which was created to be a completely sensory experience for guests. Southern classics were coupled with staple comfort foods, ensuring that everyone in attendance found something they would enjoy.
