From Mariee Ami Wedding Planning Studio: “Kristan & Jeremy are such a genuine pair. Everything about their day was “sweet.” They are just a perfect match and really only cared that they got married. Kristan had a piece of fabric that she got while on a mission trip, and the entire wedding design from the paper to the florals stemmed from that — the turquoise, the hydrangeas, the rustic elegance — it all began from that fabric.”
Sometimes we are ever so lucky to know someone who’s planning a lovely wedding. This South Carolina wedding by morgan+wes has us falling in love with the Lowcountry vibes. The burlap and lace, the sunflowers, the bridesmaids in cowgirl boots… talk about South Carolina wedding perfection! The reception included dancing, music, and plenty of good food. There were plates stacked high with Krispy Kreme, and Lowcountry style peanuts. There’s even a video to see here. The bride, Casey, wrote this for us: “There aren’t many moments in your life that you get to celebrate with all your family and friends. We wanted to take advantage of the gift we’d been given, and make sure that everyone had a fabulous time.” Congratulations, Casey + Jake!
Hello, gorgeous! This wedding is just darling. In this pin-crazy, inspiration-whirlwind kind of world we live in, it is so amazing to see a wedding beautiful and simplistic. This particular wedding holds a touch of whimsy, and reminds us of The Secret Garden.
I just adore Jennifer Blair Photography. I could listen to her describe her brides all day. “Sweet tea is her favorite thing in the world,” and “she’s a Southern belle from head to toe,” were just a few of the sweet words she spoke about her bride, Cassadi… “For their day they chose to have an intimate affair full of meaningful touches. Even their vendors, including me, were close personal friends. The caterer was the groom’s aunt and uncle, the cake artist was a close friend from church, and so on. The cross in the center of the ceremony spot was made of beams from a family home. It was a day surrounded by their favorite things and close friends and family. All the girls in the dressing room were tearing up as Cassadi slipped into her stunning lace gown. The baby’s breath in her hair… the cotton in her bouquet was the perfect Southern touch. One of my favorite moments was before the ceremony as Bradley’s sister and brother-in-law led in a time of worship. I looked back to see all the groomsmen singing so unabashed. It’s so moving. I could go on and on about this day!” Thank you to Jennifer for making us feel like we were there!
From Don Mears Photography: “A historic train museum in Downtown Richmond served as the quintessential backdrop, with its “Old City” vibe and distinctively elegant setting. Personalized details abound as the couple paid homage to each of their respective professions. Dee wove herbs and spices into the décor as a nod to Patrick being a chef, with lavender, star anise, cinnamon sticks, crab apples and kumquats dominating the arrangements. Dee, a physician, scoured the internet for vintage medicine bottles to use as bud vases. Copper accents lent formality to the look, with rustic avocado green and browns serving as the color scheme. The bride and groom opted for a First Look; Dee shares, “After five years together, a year planning, and an entire day of primping, it felt so good to just give each other a hug and know that it was really time.”
Everything about this wedding is just AMAZING — the bridesmaids with their cardigans and lavender bouquets; the brown glass bottles that decorated the rustic reception; the delicious pies; the finale of a spectacular sparkler display. I just wish I had been there to get my own tiny bottle of vanilla extract — who knew a food favor could be so charming?
