Jessica & Joseph were married at Alcyone Plantation in Lake Park, G.A. near the Florida border on in this blessed year of our Lord. Their day was truly adorned in Southern elegance. From the lace details on Jessica’s dress right down to the Mason jars on the table…this was a perfect wedding in the Deep South.
Alcyone Plantation is a beautiful Antebellum mansion built in the 1850s and the house still has its original architectural features. Blume Photography did an excellent job capturing the natural Florida sunlight in their wedding day portraits. The Southern setting lent itself to aesthetics thanks to the plantation’s founders.
“Mr. Stapler and his wife, Caroline, had six children. Tradition says that John R. Stapler planted an oak tree in the front yard for each child and the six original oak trees still exist today. More magnificent oaks have been added through the years creating a picturesque canopy welcoming friends and guest to the main house.” Don’t these newlyweds look stunning beneath these same oak trees?
Y’all the truth is that it’s not about the house: it’s the memories made inside. This modern, Southern couple was sure to preserve the aesthetics of elegance and grace on their wedding day which made it albeit an homage to the Stapler family themselves.
