Charming Wedding Inspiration at a Southern Manor


Drawn to the history, tradition, and charm of the South, Harper Mae Events presents us with the most charming southern manor inspiration. If Scarlett O’Hara from Gone with the Wind were getting married in the 2020s, this would be her wedding. Scarlett O’Hara would dream of sharing her vows amidst the beautiful details in a setting infused with emerald-rich tones and feminine details. There is no better venue to be the backdrop to a charming southern manor shoot than the historic Dominion House. The breathtaking elegance of the venue and beautiful outdoor garden offers a romantic grandeur space to say, “I do.” A delicate romantic tablescape is only fitting in such a grandeur space. The tablescape showcased a charming blend of ivory and emerald linens from Mood Party Rentals paired with butterfly detailed china from BC Clark Jewelers. And yes, you read that right, butterfly detailed china! We are obsessed! The butterfly china even influenced Robyn’s Flower Garden for her floral inspiration. Lush greenery with large blooming garden roses in colors of caramel antique, toffee, and blush and ivory adorned the tabletop. In addition, place cards and menus from Paper + More encapsulate the southern manor charm with rich floral detailing and emerald hues. Incorporating well-designed stationery throughout the table setting is one the easiest way to elevate wedding decor. Further choosing a motif and color palette and letting your vendor work their magic will always result in a beautiful outcome. Marianne’s Rentals worked their magic by adding rich emerald candlesticks that increased the dramatic emerald hues. Likewise, Mishelle Handy Cakes played upon the floral motif and created the most elegant three-tiered cake. The charming southern manor shoot displayed a gown that Scarlett O’Hara herself would envy. A modern yet sophisticated dress with a deep V-neck and a grand bow on the back from Bella Rose Bridal. This gown is a show-stopping moment and represents what it means to be a southern manor bride. The bride wore a clean and sleek bun paired with a bright lip from M Salon. Equally as important, her groom looked charming in a tux from The Wardrobe Modern Menswear. Finally, the ever-so-talented Meg Rose Photography brought the shoot to life by capturing all the bright and charming southern manor details. Keep scrolling to see all the stunning images. Cheers!



From the planner, Harper Holloman with Harper Mae Events:Naturally drawn to the history, the tradition and the charm of the South, I found myself asking a single question: ‘What if Scarlett O’Hara from Gone with the Wind was getting married in the 2020s?’ I wanted to create a setting that was infused with rich tones, feminine details and a modern, yet sophisticated, gown that Scarlett herself would envy. The romance and the grandeur of Dominion House served as the most perfect backdrop for my inspiration.
