Private Gatsby Wedding in Greenville, GA

“I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

This wedding theme was a remarkable tribute to the F. Scott Fitzgerald famous words in The Great Gatsby.

This breathtaking wedding was held at the beautiful venue called “The Parterre” in Greenville, GA. “Classic elegance meets country charm on this historic plantation. The centerpiece of The Parterre is the beautiful antebellum mansion, surrounded by original parterre gardens and over 20 beautiful acres.”

The venue is simply breathtaking as you pull in to the original drop off area where carriages would pull up to the gardens and drop their guests off. The original style of the venue has its own character. The plantation is listed on the National Historic Register and it makes you appreciate the history even more.

The theme was Gatsby, a roaring 1920s romance about wealth, epic parties, obsessions & a cautionary tale of the american dream. From the flapper bridesmaid dresses to the stain glass cake, this wedding design focused on an upper-class love story. The mansion being the perfect backdrop for a famous Gatsby party, I couldn’t wait to capture the many details that surrounded the property.

One of my favorite things that I got to shoot was the beautiful jewelry including the gorgeous wedding engagement ring.  Nothing screamed Jay Gatsby more than this gem. Paired with a vintage radio and aspen font invitation suite, it felt like I was being whisked away to this wonderful vintage decade.

I cant wait visit this Georgia charm again!!
