Though Victoria + Rusty met in law school, it wasn’t until their first summer working together in Savannah that they started dating. It was only appropriate, then, for them to come back to Georgia for a Southern wedding at the gorgeous Ford Plantation. The couple took full advantage of the scenic trees dripping with Spanish moss and held the ceremony under their shade. The two exchanged vows in between tall vases filled with hydrangeas and orange blossoms (a sweet nod to their engagement in an orange grove!) as a small group of their friends and family looked on. Victoria looked lovely in a Deborah Lindquist dress (how pretty is that bow in the back?!) and Rusty looked like quite the Southern gentleman in navy and khaki, topped off with a bow tie. I love that even their dogs dressed up for the occasion in a garland and bow tie. Victoria and Rusty described their wedding as full of “‘Slap your granny’ good food” and we believe them! With sweet tea, Arnold Palmers, handmade pies and a red velvet cake, this reception has us licking our lips! Good Southern food was the perfect way to top off a beautiful reception, where hydrangeas, cotton bolls, and burlap set the scene. Of course, nothing’s more Southern than celebrating with your closest friends and family. We love that V + R highlight that as the most important detail. Who could argue? Especially when you end up with fun photos like the last one from 1313 Photography. Too fun!
