A Summertime Southern Wedding at Tuckahoe Plantation

It’s been quite some time since we have featured a wedding, and this one seems like one of the most fitting weddings to kick off the wedding season. The classic venue of Thomas Jefferson’s boyhood home, Tuckhahoe Plantation, offers a beautiful stark white Georgian background structure starkly juxtaposed by the surrounding greenery of the property. The gardens and hedges of the home are beautiful as well, which allowed this bride to add only a few touches to the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour.

The bride cleverly added some pink flair to the wedding ceremony using jus ribbons and shepherd’s hooks. Color was added to the wedding reception using vivid wildflowers juxtaposed to bright gold vases, golden chargers, and copper candlesticks. And, the bride herself wore a golden leaf necklace, and belt as well as gold stud earrings.

The wedding cake was handpainted to give the appearance of a watercolor painting matching the wildflowers.

In the tradition of the Tuckahoe Plantation, the couple buried a bottle of bourbon on the property before the wedding day to prevent rain their wedding day. On their wedding day, they dug it up, and enjoyed a drink once they saw that it wasn’t raining.

The couple also added a cigar bar, fire pit and tours of the Tuckahoe Plantation home during cocktail hour.

To top off all of the charm of their big day, this happy couple ended the wedding by leaving the reception under sparker lights.

This wedding balanced elegance and tradition with natural beauty and a laidback, homey feel to create a charming wedding. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
