A Garden-Style Wedding at Pursell Farms in Sylacauga, Alabama

Between the lush hanging arrangements, centerpieces and bouquets, this outdoor wedding feels like a garden – even in March! The King's Garden, Mary Caroline Byers (24 and a caretaker) and Forrest Roberson’s (22 and an entrepreneur) florist, accented each row of white folding chairs with glass bottles of blue hydrangeas and pink blooms for their ceremony as pink and white flower petals lined the aisle. Mary Carolina’s entrance was simple and sweet. She walked down the aisle in an ivory lace, A-line wedding dress with a classic lace-trimmed veil and champagne sash. “I knew I wanted an outside wedding from the time I was a little girl,” she says. Forrest met her at a wooden cross covered in florals that marked their altar space. Once Mary Caroline and Forrest exchanged vows, all celebrated with a tented reception. Invision Events designed the affair with a vintage touch. Pedestal vases filled with tulips and roses accented each table as tea light candles surrounded its base. Another detail we loved were their wedding cakes. Olexa's Cakes and Catering baked a three-tier confection with blue hydrangeas between each layer, as well as a two-tier groom’s cake surrounded by chocolate-covered strawberries. For guests who wanted a little something different, Mary Caroline and Forrest even had a s’mores bar and the open fire pit. Heather Durham Photography captured every detail as they finished the night with a few turns on the dance floor and a sparkler exit. For future newlyweds, Mary Caroline encourages having someone to help that day: “Don't sweat the small stuff. Surround yourself with good people who take care of the details so you don't have to.”
