2019 Spring + Summer Wedding Trends

Who else is ready for warmer weather?! I know we sure are! Well thankfully Spring is just around the corner! That’s why we thought it was a good idea to share some of the 2019 Spring + Summer Wedding Trends we have heard buzzing around the wedding world!

  1. Coral colors: this bright, cheery color is the perfect pop of color to incorporate into not only your Spring wedding, but a summer wedding as well

  2. Non traditional bridesmaid dresses: instead of all your ladies wearing the same dress, try mixing it up and trying out different shades of your main color, or have some girls where lace and others not! Don’t be afraid to have a little bit of fun with it

  3. Bars: this year we will see more and more wedding bars with speciality and special cocktails custom made with fresh and fun ingredients

  4. Florals: dainty bouquets, dried florals and large greenery arrangements throughout your venue

  5. Wedding artists: Ever think of having a caricature artist at your wedding day?! Well if you haven’t nows the time to start looking into it! What a fun and creative way for your guests to take home a souvenir from your day

  6. Black accents: A chic choice for any wedding color palette, expect to see black accents on tablescapes

Are there any trends that you see above that catch your eye or you would be interested in trying out?! Let us know below in the comments!  

Bridal - Styled Shoot


Something we love the most about our beautiful house is how versatile it is. You can go for either a bright and airy look or dark and moody and it be absolute perfection either way!

This beautiful styled shoot couldn’t have happened without Belvedere Floral providing the stunning florals + Carrie Radford providing the amazing photos. I mean come on y’all does it get any better than this?! We don’t think so!

Jessica + Dalton - Wedding Day

Oh my, oh my! What a beautiful day to share pictures of a lovely couple. We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to share in their special day with them, and watch at Live View Studios captured the sweetest of moments.  

Their wedding day could not have started off better here at the Leslie - Alford Mims House with sunshine and smiles! Jessica’s dress was absolutely gorgeous with beautiful lacing and a back to die for. And when Dalton saw his sweet bride for their first look, the love & emotion we saw brought us to tears! Each and every moment of their day was stunning.

We can’t thank Jessica + Dalton enough for allowing us to be a part of their wedding day not only as their venue, but also as their planners through Mad Dash Weddings! We LOVE what we do and couldn’t do it without our sweet couples and the amazing team of vendors that make the day possible.
