I am SO excited to share this gorgeous Natural State Rock & Republic wedding editorial with you guys!! This venue has been around a long long time (you may remember it as Magnolia Gardens), but it recently got a refresh that just brings it to a whole new level. The property is so gorgeous, with enormous magnolia trees, an arbor made of wisteria, brick paths and so many more classic and beautiful features. The main house is full of antique furniture, but you’ll notice modern twists in the decor as you tour around and see everything it has to offer!
I helped photograph one of the last weddings that was held at Magnolia Gardens before they closed, and when I first saw that the property was being reopened I was giddy! I immediately reached out to one of my favorite planners (favorite because she’s SO much fun and also INCREDIBLY talented) to see if she wanted to collaborate on a wedding editorial shoot at Natural State Rock & Republic, and what she designed was prettier than my wildest dreams. Everything was absolutely perfect, from the florals that PIGMINT created to the models that absolutely rocked their gowns and suits, and the photos are just so beautiful (if I do say so myself)!
One of my favorite things was that Christa threw in a little bike theme because Natural State Rock & Republic is actually a biking BNB!
