Kate and Kyle

The pineapple is a well-recognized symbol of Southern hospitality; I learned once during a visit to an old plantation outside of New Orleans, Louisiana that the tradition of leaving a pineapple in a guest’s room during their stay was a polite way of informing them that they had overstayed their welcome, i.e., “Here’s a lovely pineapple, kindly be on your way…” This Georgia wedding played up the Southern theme by incorporating tidbits of nostalgic charm- a pineapple and a palm tree- on their various printed pieces.
