weddings: down south with seersucker details

A beautifully executed wedding by planner Tara Guerard and photographed by Liz Banfield. Using seersucker tablecloths makes the wedding feel a bit more relaxed under an open sided tent, but the chandelier drums, fabric draped tent and gray carpeted floor let guests know this is a very elegant southern wedding. The subtle seersucker touches carry from the programs through to the reception.
