Whitney and Chris’ wedding was a simple chic southern soiree. Their intimate wedding featured tablescapes with metallic votives and cascading floral design that included soft pink and orange roses. Gold accents adorned the cake table and dining chairs. Cotton wreaths added a rustic natural touch as window features. A white, silver studded lounge setting with metallic embellished accent pillows offered a cozy setting in front of a brick fireplace.
With Priscilla Thomas Photography capturing every moment, the couple opted for a first look before the ceremony followed by portraits with the wedding party at Hampton Park. The spacious outdoor setting offered majestic oak trees and romantic mossy crape myrtles as the backdrop for their portraits. The couple was wed in an intimate rooftop ceremony at Upstairs at Midtown. A sprawling floral design atop a whitewashed mantel served as the backdrop as guests were seated on rustic benches. After the ceremony, the space was flipped for an outdoor reception space where the Lowhills sang folk and bluegrass tunes beneath cafe lighting. Heavy hors-d’oeuvres were served throughout the evening. After Whitney and Chris cut the wedding cake, the bridesmaids participated in a traditional Cake Pull, a tradition well-known in Whitney’s native New Orleans. Rooted in the Victorian era ribbon pull, the contemporary tradition now involves charms the bride selects for the bridesmaids. Each charm has its own symbolic meaning. For example, the Fleur-de-Lis means “love and prosperity.” As the night came to a close, Whitney and Chris sped through an arch of sparklers held by friends and family.
