A Beautiful Family

Sadly, in 2011 Tabitha’s husband and father to her two girls, passed away. Chris who was in the army with her late husband would come by and check in on her and the girls. But love has been restored as Chris has forged a beautiful path to not only Tabitha’s heart but the hearts of her two daughters as well. What a beautiful family!

Simple Southern Wedding in Ivory and Brown

Categories Real Weddings

Simple…charming…romantic… Check, check and check! We’re going to the chapel today with Maliea and Kendall. Their small outdoor wedding at Castle Hill Chapel sits right next door to the home of Maliea’s parents. The expansive sky and the rustic surroundings made the perfect accompaniment to their dreamy decor and neutral color palette.

Much to love … some of our favorite details from this southern diy wedding include: Maliea’s lace dress and her cotton-embellished ivory and tan bouquet. We love the 5 different dresses for her 8 bridesmaids plus the flower girl. We love their first-look photos and how Kendall and the guys wore cool skeleton key boutonnieres. And we love how burlap and tulle framed the focal point of the ceremony. What is your favorite detail?

Classic Southern Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

We love southern weddings! We fall for the down-home hospitality, sweet tea in mason jars {actually, anything in a mason jar!}, gingham, cowboy boots, bow ties, historic venues, bridal portraits and burying the bourbon. Yes, we love us some southern weddings! And we love Carrie and Austin’s southern wedding at the historic Naylor Hall in Roswell, Georgia. These two have been through a lot together but their relationship has outlasted all of the obstacles. With smiles from ear to ear, Carrie and Austin said “I Do” in front of and with the support of their families that had brought them through to their big day.

Enjoy.

Sweet Southern Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

There’s so much loveliness in Jamie and Deon’s outdoor Southern wedding–where do we begin? Well, we can start with how stunning Jamie looks in her hand-sewn, sleeved, silver-blue, lace gown and birdcage veil. We also love how Jamie and Deon incorporated their sweet baby boy, Roman, into the ceremony when they all “jumped the broom” together.

Elegance + Charm. From the different bridesmaid’s dresses and statement-making bouquets and florals, to traditional Southern details like mason jars and skeleton key accessories, this wedding is absolutely lovely. Enjoy.
