Southern Love

Parasols are a big wedding trend right now. They are a fun accessory for any wedding or party! Kristin Monfirdini & Simon McKenzie were married in Hartsfield, Georgia at the beautiful Gin Creek Plantation. Parasols were placed above the ceremony chairs for shade and added color. Down south, it gets hot in the summer so this was a creative way to add in pops or purple and pink while keeping guests cool! If you’re looking for parasols for an upcoming party or wedding, this is a good go-to source for buying them online.

And when all is said and done, have some fun! Whether you’ve wrapped up a huge event, finished a dinner party, or said the “I-do’s”, have a little fun – the hard work is over! This bride took to a rope swing for some after-wedding play. We love her style!

    This is really cool… Question: did she fall in the water? Looks like she’s stuck!!! :)
    And the rest of the wedding seems like a lot of fun too! Great one to share.

    More impressive than the parasols are the “scrambled eggs” on the groom’s shoulder-boards. I’m guessing he’s aCaptain in the Navy…he looks too young for Admiral.

    The parasols are a nice idea – we may have a wedding in the family soon in Calif. …I’ll keep it in mind.

    Did the bride really get wet in her wedding gown? Very adventurous!!!

    I didn’t drop into the water but I did consider it! I was really nervous swinging out the first time. A ton of fun though!

    Sorry, but the bride didn’t go into the water. She had to take pictures the next day, but wanted the illusion for the wedding album. She would have gone in, if more pictures were needed.

    Also, the groom is a US Army Major and is wearing the Army White Dress Mess Uniform.

    The rope swing provided entertainment for the family while the bride and groom were taking wedding day photos!
