I&B Bride: Ashleigh


I&B Bride: Ashleigh

It took I&B bride Ashleigh less than fifteen minutes in the shop to find the dress of her dreams… talk about a magical Maggie moment! 

Ashleigh chose Winstyn by Maggie Sottero for her May wedding, and the fit couldn’t be more perfect for this sweet southern bride! 


How precious are Ashleigh and her mother in these getting-ready snaps? We love these little glimpses into all the love that surrounds our I&B brides. 

Speaking of surrounding brides with love, we love that Ashleigh chose to do a first look reveal with her bridesmaids. The smiles on their faces say it all!

Those coral bridesmaids dresses by Vera Wang are to-die-for. We think that this is the perfect color selection for a late-spring wedding. How chic does Ashleigh and her bride tribe look struttin’ their stuff? 

Of course, we can’t forget the handsome groom, Dustin. Navy suits are a great option for grooms who want to maintain a classic look without going too dark. 

Before exchanging vows, Ashleigh and Dustin took a private moment to read letters that they had written one another. This is a great idea for couples who have something special they'd like to say to one another but are unable to include their message in their vows. 


We adore that Ashleigh's mother gave her away almost as much as we adore the smile on Dustin's face. We will never get over the look in the groom's eyes the first time he sees his beautiful bride! 


It's no wonder that Ashleigh was able to make a decision so quickly... it's like Winstyn was made for her! We love the delicate lace, especially when paired with a fabulous flowing veil.

How cute was the decor at the reception? Ashleigh and Dustin chose to keep it super simple for their reception at The Foundry at Rae's Creek in Augusta, Georgia. Lanterns are some of our favorite decor pieces!

Congratulations again to I&B bride Ashleigh and her husband, Dustin. The I&B team couldn't be happier for you two!

Jessica & Nick


Jessica & Nick

Jessica and Nick’s elopement has got to be one of the sweetest ceremonies we’ve ever been a part of. This precious pair struck the perfect balance between simplicity and personality in their private square wedding in Savannah’s Downtown Historic District.


Elopements are great for couples who want to center the focus of their big day around their commitment to each other. They are extremely easy to plan and very low budget, which means you can drop major coin on the aspects of the day that matter most to you, such as florals or photography.


Wendy at AptB Photography always captures the most dreamy shots. We adore this snap of the groom, Nick, holding Jessica’s bouquet as they exchange vows-- how intimate!

Jessica and Nick's elopement was super low-key. We love these relaxed shots of them post ceremony!

Talk about wedding style. How swoonworthy were these two all dressed to the nines? 

We took extra special care to design a bouquet that coordinated well with our sweet #I&BBride Jessica’s vision. We love that she choose to add a shock of orange blooms to take her florals to the next level. 

Nick looked so dapper in his vest and top hat. Those eensie-weensie daisies in his boutonniere  kill us. They’re so precious! 

Jessica wanted a simple, delicate flower crown that wouldn’t clash with her blush colored gown-- and we think she totally rocked it.  

Jessica and Nick picked the perfect locale for their elopement. Downtown Savannah is full of whimsy and elegance, making it the best city in the south for a wedding photoshoot. We love these shots of the happy couple surrounded by greenery. 

Congratulations again, Jessica and Nick! We couldn’t be happier for you two!

Jackie & Jonathan


Jackie & Jonathan

Y’all, how perfectly did Meghan Melia photography capture Jackie and Jonathan’s moody, romantic wedding at the Charles H. Morris Center? 


Every detail of their intimate mid-May wedding was swoon-worthy, starting with Jackie’s classic wedding gown. 

Check out the smiles on that bride tribe. Are they not the cutest?

This has to be the most photogenic group of groomsmen we’ve seen in awhile. We love their sleek tuxedos, especially when paired with their multi-colored boutonnieres. Jackie and Jonathan chose to stick to a scheme of coordinating colors from warm burgundy and plum to ultra-cool silver, and we think it was the perfect choice!


We love these coordinating bridesmaids gowns. This is such a chic way to make sure that your girls are looking their best while keeping with the theme of the wedding!

Beyond Beautiful by Heather always does an amazing job on our #I&BBrides. Jackie looked simply heavenly with her dramatic makeup and twisted updo. 


First look photos are a growing tradition we hope is here to stay. We love the look of awe in handsome groom Jonathan’s eyes… and who can blame him, with a bride like that? 


We loved designing Jackie’s wild and funky bouquet. Jackie choose pops of purple to pair perfectly with white and burgundy blooms. 


Jackie and Jonathan kept their ceremony ultra-chic and simple with an arch covered in white drapery and greenery. How cool is that guitar-turned-guestbook? 


The brick walls at the Morris Center made for the perfect backdrop for Jackie and Jonathan’s reception. Their gold geometric terrariums and simple floral arrangements looked so fabulous with their place settings. 

This photobooth was so adorably epic-- not to mention the perfect way to send your guests off with a lasting memory of the night!

Congratulations again, Jackie and Jonathan. The I&B team wishes you all the happiness in the years to come.

I&B Bride: Morrin

It’s a good thing I&B bride Morrin and her new husband, Bryan, are nurses, because we think we’re going to need some medical attention after receiving these photos--our hearts have stopped! 

Morrin looked all kinds of lovely in lace. Lottie by Maggie Sottero was the perfect choice for this sweet bride--and check out that bling! Her sparkly belt was amazing, especially when paired with her boho-chic headband. 

Congratulations, Morrin & Bryan! The I&B team wishes you all the happiness in the world as you start your lives together.
