real wedding, georgia style

Next week I'm heading south for the wedding of one of my bestest friends, Laura. Laura and her hubby-to-be live in Athens, Georgia and have an amazingly rich life made up of running an organic farm, owning a delicious, pioneering restaurant and hip, local bar, plus Laura is a nurse and Jason is finishing his PhD program at UGA. They have carved out an enviable existence in their little corner of the south. And their wedding is going to be rad! Hopefully I'll be back with some "real wedding" type photos to share, but for now, here's an inspiration board I put together for Laura earlier in the spring.

The wedding is at Tucker Plantation, in the countryside outside of Athens and it will be catered by their restaurant, farm255, which is fed by the farm, fullmoon co-op. Laura is growing most of the flowers for decoration and almost everything used in their celebration is from friends and local vendors. It's like the epitome of a "green" wedding, without really trying. Except that we are all flying across the country to be there of course, but we bought our terra passes like good, environmentally-friendly citizens.

Board credits: most of the images I saved before I had designs on blogging, so I'm not sure where all of them are from... eek! But I would guess, martha stewart and Snippet & Ink are major contributers. The dress is Alix & Kelly, the invite is Pica Press, the beet card is Yee-Haw Industries, the hair piece is Easter Yu.

Hi- I know this is a super old post, but I just found your blog recently and I've been scrolling back through the archives, and i was so excited to come across this! We met Jason at a Georgia Organics Conference a few years ago, and then made a trip to Athens about a year later to visit the farm and eat at the restaurant, and we ended up having dinner with Laura & Jason. I love it when it feels like a small world!
I really like your beautiful blog! So much inspiration...
