The Best of Southern Weddings Part III

Beth, our wonderful marketing manager (and my awesome boss), had the pleasure of taking part in her sister Laura’s wedding this past Saturday at Heartwood Hall. Laura, who wed fiance Cary, were married in Heartwood Hall’s new ceremony and reception site, aptly titled The Barn.

A huge thanks to Denise Suthoff, the owner of Heartwood Hall and of course, congratulations to the new couple, Mr. and Mrs.  Cheston!



The Best of Southern Weddings Part II! {Guest Post}

A special thank you to our friends at Southern Bride. Below is a recent blog post that goes along with our “Best of Southern Weddings” series. Hope you get as much inspiration out of it as we did! You can’t get any more Southern than mason jars. 🙂

The Mason Jar, also known as “Ball Jar” was invented in 1858 by John Mason. The original purpose of the mason jar was to be used for preserving and storing food. They are still used for that very purpose today, but have also become quite popular for weddings as well. Many brides have been using mason jars to incorporate a little southern flair into their big day.

They can be used in so many ways! They can be a decoration with candles or flower arrangements inside, on tables, as aisle markers, as table numbers, filled with some treats/favors for the guests, and of course they can be used to serve food and drinks.

Mason jars can be used in both formal and casual settings. Adding some beautiful floral centerpieces can make them more formal, while placing a single stem or votive candle can make it more casual. They can also be used as glasses for your guests to drink from. You can serve Southern favorites like lemonade or sweet tea or even a signature, Southern cocktail.

Holly and Aaron Ryan, who were married in Moorseville, AL used mason jars to decorate the church they were married in. They hung the jars on the pews with simple flower arrangements and delicate ribbon The church was very old and Holly did not want to take away from the character of the church, which is why the mason jars worked so well. Their wedding was a true, Southern event and the mason jars added that special touch and set the tone for their special, Southern celebration.

The Best of Southern Weddings Part I!

At Mahaffey, we feel blessed to be based in the South. Though we do travel a good bit outside of our region from time to time, there’s really nothing like a classic southern wedding.

With that in mind, we’re going to start a mini series on “the best of southern weddings.” To start it off, I’m sharing details from the wedding of a good friend of mine who recently had her wedding blogged about in a two-part series.

If you’re a true Southern Belle going for a Southern vintage theme, look no further than Southern Weddings Magazine‘s latest blog posts for your inspiration…especially Andrea & Tres, Part I and Andrea & Tres, Part II! Here’s a brief overview of this exquisite Southern wedding…

“Everything about our wedding was Southern! Our theme was Southern vintage, and our venue, Southern Oaks Plantation, set the tone for all the details. The front lawn of the antebellum home served as our ceremony site with a horse and carriage incorporated into the ceremony. My girls carried magnolias down the aisle, and magnolias were also included on our invitations and our wedding cake. To give the guys a Southern touch, they wore cotton bloom boutonnieres.”
