This French inspired pink wedding inspiration is the apex of tented sophistication with gold and navy thread throughout. Bear Creek Manor is a gorgeous new venue located in Athens, GA. Sitting across from the lake and bracketed by large and beautiful trees, it is a fantastic Southern outdoor venue. Andie Freeman Photography and Southern Sophistication Designs showcase the beauty of the property with a touch of Southern charm.

French Inspired

Event and floral designer Jessie Patton of Southern Sophistication Designs, drew her inspiration from a French style and a swatch of Betsy Johnson fabric. The bride wore a beautiful fit and flare nude gown designed by Mac Duggal and sold by High Maintenance Formalwear. The bridesmaids wore short, sequined royal blue gowns by Minuet also carried by the bridal retailer while their precious flower girl wore a hot pink and nude couture tutu dress with a birdcage, floral, and feather headpiece. Instead of carrying flowers down the aisle, the flower girl carried a flower adorned white Dollface Persian kitten named Pillsbury. Totally adorable. The calm nature of Persians and Dollface Persians made them a perfect addition to the day.

Pink Wedding Inspiration

The reception was placed under a white tent with a shabby chic table, hand painted and accompanied by mismatched overstuffed chairs as well as a white bench. Tall, hot pink hydrangea arrangements were placed on either end of the table just under a white, shabby chic chandelier. In between the tall arrangements were short arrangements of hot pink roses with a pop of coral. The table was set with white china trimmed in gold on top of gold chargers. The escort cards were garden pots with forks to hold each card festive and perfect for an outdoor wedding theme. The menu consisted of a starter salad of field greens with heirloom tomatoes, seedless cucumbers and shaved Asiago topped with champagne vinaigrette. The main course was seven pepper crusted ahi tuna with prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

For a signature cocktail a Pink Lemonade Martini was served and we are delighted to share the recipe! Perfect for any occasion:
