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. Additional printing details like the flower menu card mix things up a bit with the clever calligraphed leaf attached as place cards. Tara worked together with The Lettered Olive for all the printing. (Click on their link for inspirational ideas for your celebration) Notice Tara mixed square tables with rectangular tables at the reception which really works so nicely for a graphic design and easy flow. Also notice she keep the linens and centerpieces consistent for each square and rectangle table. On the square tables she used the gray cloths and tall arrangements and the rectangular tables had the red seersucker cloths with low centerpieces. By having all the ballroom chairs the same – white with gray cushions, it keeps the space unified.
