A Rustic Southern Wedding at Vinewood Plantation in Newnan, Georgia

Vinewood Plantation is the picture of Georgia charm: The venue offers a plantation home, an ancient Wedding Tree and a refined rustic barn settled on acres of rolling green pastures and pecan trees. For Georgia-based couple Jessica Green (23 and a teacher) and Scotty Green (23 and a pharmacist), this laid-back Southern setting fit exactly the type of wedding day they envisioned. Together with their 200 guests, their fall fete unfolded on the grounds in Newnan, Georgia. Among Jessica’s favorite details were the flowers: Virtu Floral Design brought in white pumpkins, wildflowers and fresh blooms in rich autumn-inspired hues (rich cranberry, purple and orange, to contrast with the venue’s natural greens and browns). At the reception inside the refurbished horse barn, overhead drapery and a chandelier provided a dramatic display over the dance floor. Vinewood Plantation took care of all the furniture and provided mismatched wooden chairs and farm tables, including quilt-covered hay bales for lounging. Following a truly Southern dinner, including fried green tomatoes and macaroni and cheese, guests relaxed outdoors and made s’mores over a fire pit. Anna K. Photography was on hand to capture all the sweet moments, below.
