Real Weddings: Mary + Scott

Although they moved around quite a bit, Mary and Scott have strong Southern roots so it was no surprise that they’d want to incorporate lots of Southern elements into their big day. It was actually Mary’s dream to be married in a cotton field but when she realized the challenge of turning a cotton field into a suitable venue, she decided instead to just bring the cotton field to their wedding. Some family friends let her raid their cotton field and then her mom made the boutonnieres and delivered loads more cotton to their florist so that it could be incorporated into the rest of their arrangements. From the Cheerwine to the Moonpies to the sparkler-lit sportsfishing boat that sent off the bride and groom, it was truly a North Carolina event beautifully photographed by the Southerner herself, Melissa Tuck!

  1. I adore this wedding! I might be biased though considering I am an Alabama girl! I need one of those ties for my hubby!

  2. I grew up on a cotton and peanut farm and am dying to incorporate cotton into my wedding one day (probably soon!) Just love these photos and ideas!
