You Know It's Going to Be Good When There's Koala Cuff Links

Bound together by their love of each other, of family, of travel, and of the South, these two cuties tied the knot in a picturesque celebration planned by Posh Petals + Pearls and captured by Dana Cubbage Weddings . By incorporating family tokens, Southern traditions, nods to their adventures abroad (hello, koala cuff links!), and carefully selecting each stamp for the invitations, this sweet bride and groom crafted a celebration as meaningful as it is beautiful . Read all about their thoughtful touches, the meaning behind those stamps, and the significance of the koalas in the bride’s own words, below! From Dana Cubbage Weddings … My first wedding of 2018 was a showstopper. Beautiful bride Thayer looked stunning in her lace gown, while her handsome groom Josh looked oh-so-dapper in his classic black tuxedo.

We loved the idea of mixing winter colors and textures with lots of fresh greenery and a clear top tent to give our wedding a wintery, lush garden vibe. We’re both from the South, with Josh growing up in Savannah and me being born and raised in Atlanta, so we wanted our wedding to incorporate some traditional Southern details, like the menu full of traditional Southern favorite with a modern twist and the acrylic and dark wood calligraphy signs. We also brought in décor details such as oyster shells taken from Josh’s home in Savannah that were originally part of many family oyster roasts with us together with Josh’s family in their backyard. Family is very important to both of us, so we wanted to incorporate pictures at the reception of our parents’ and grandparents’ wedding days for good luck as they all represent the start of lasting, loving, happy marriages. We both love to travel, so we decided to use the names of cities for our table numbers that each represent places we’ve visited together and made great memories in over our eight-year […]
