Beautiful Dreamer

Given current world events, beauty and inspiration are welcome diversions from the gloom. Couples whose weddings have been impacted by the coronavirus need a distraction from postponements and uncertainty. With that in mind, Logan Doerries Design recently partnered with Southern Oaks Plantation and several other New Orleans wedding professionals to bring beauty – and some on-trend bridal inspiration – to our readers.

“The shoot was styled to frame an edgier and more eclectic design, while honoring the majestic vibrance that Southern Oaks Plantation is famous for.,” said Doerries. The shoot exudes a 1970s era vibe – with crushed velvets, rich wine-colored hues paired with oranges, yellows and greens – that is a popular trend in the wedding industry.

“Southern Oaks Plantation is known for its grand façade and sprawling oak tree, but it also encompasses a stunning fountain that we decided to highlight in this shoot,” continued Doerries. “With a stunning assortment of vintage rentals by Lovegood Furniture, we decided to place the ceremony seating towards the front of the property with the floral filled fountain designed by Daisy Bouquet, as the focal point.”
