Southern Elopement Inspiration Shoot at the Wither-Maguire House
From the Planner, Katie of Big Day Celebrations : The Withers-Maguire House is so charming, I had to come up with a theme to fit. After a brainstorming session, "A Southern Elopement" was born. The idea behind it all was to take two different states on complete opposite ends of our country, in this case Washington and Massachusetts, and blend them together to come up with the look for our Florida-based elopement. During my meeting with Cheryl's Distinctive Creations, we tossed around ideas of evergreen, birchwood, driftwood, sand, shells, aqua, coral and neutral colors. I wanted something that meshed the beautiful evergreen forests of Washington with the sandy beaches of Cape Cod. After that meeting, the look of our shoot was born.
The backstory to our theme goes a little something like this: "Our bride and groom had been in along distance relationship for some time now. Our groom lived in Washington and our bride lived in Cape Cod, MA. Feeling as though they could no longer be apart, they decided to pack their bags and elope to Florida. They wanted to incorporate little bits and pieces of their home into the details of their wedding day. They did this by including craft beer and wines, made in both Washington and Massachusetts, creating a guest book perfectly designed to show where their love began and through added touches in their floral and decor." The Withers-Maguire House was the perfect location to show their story.
