A compilation of images from a wedding at the Bibb Mill in Columbus, Georgia

This Bibb Mill wedding styled shoot is one of my favorite inspiration editorials I’ve created! With stunning visuals by Luna Rose Florals and styling by G&A Weddings, all elements pulled together perfectly. Our goal was to showcase a garden wedding aesthetic with modern, vibrant touches of color. But we found inspiration in so much more. Style Me Pretty featured this styled editorial, and we are thrilled! Below are some of my words I used when working with Style Me Pretty on this bold feature. Enjoy!


Bibb Mill Wedding Inspiration

“This styled shoot by G&A Weddings has all of the feminine feels for every modern bride looking to show off their true look. Our bride was our inspiration. Hannah decided on a big chop to go back to her roots and embrace her true look during quarantine. I think she showed confidence and comfort in herself to make a decision like that. I love her for it! She embraced her look fully, and it was inspiring to me as the photographer to capture because her emotions were bold, raw, and captivating. Hannah has a vibrant personality. It paired perfectly with the bold, feminine colors in the floral arrangements.

Combining pink and yellow florals with the historic mill in Columbus, Georgia created a romantic flair. Luna Rose Florals crafted a vibrant bouquet and boutonniere for our couple. But her floral garland that hung onto the outdoor windows overlooking the river was the aspect of the shoot that I loved most. As the ceremony backdrop, it was the perfect complimentary accent to the backdrop of the Mill ruins.

The Bibb Mill Event Center’s architecture reflects forgotten romance. I chose to highlight the southern features of the mill: the softened brick, Spanish moss, overgrown greenery, and landscaped gardens. Overall, we created a historic and gentle aesthetic while also bringing bold, modern, playful vibes! All images captured on film.”
