Real Wedding ~ Melissa and Keith

Have you ever been to a wedding where there was a pig as a guest? No? That's strange... it happens all the time! Ok, we're totally kidding. We've seen a lot of weddings, but this was a first for us. When Captured by Kate photographer Kate Thornton sent us Melissa and Keith's pretty spring wedding planned by Something to Celebrate at Lowndes Grove, admittedly it was Dallas Alice, the couple's adorable pet pig, that caught our eye. We took a closer look and the fun event had so many pretty details that we couldn't wait to share them with you.

Melissa chose a palette of fresh green, crisp white and an array of violet hues, ranging from deep purple to pale lavender. Her bridesmaids wore cocktail dresses in bold plum and carried massed bouquets that included green hydrangea and violet ranunculus. Pomanders of light green and purple hydrangea on shepherds hooks lined the aisle for the outdoor ceremony and Dallas Alice wandered nearby while Melissa and Keith exchanged vows.

The reception was a mixture of indoor and outdoor atmospheres, with a tent staged on the grounds near the plantation house. The tables were set in pristine white linens with centerpieces created in a lush mixture of green and purple blooms. Bamboo chairs added a natural element, while wrought iron chandeliers draped in florals hung overhead. Don't miss a single detail, including the couple's four tier cake with exquisite green piping details by Ashley Bakery and a few special appearances by Alice Dallas!
