Southern Rustic Classic Wedding Kathryn & Miles wedding

Southern Rustic Classic Wedding Kathryn & Miles wedding

Kathryn & Miles look like bride & groom models am I right?! I mean how can two people be so gorgeous! Luckily, they are just as beautiful inside as they are on the outside. Miles’ mom hired us to step in and help with the final details of wedding planning as a gift to Kathryn. I just thought was so kind! While we didn’t get spend a long time planning together, the short time we did what I learned are these are two of the kindest souls who are like crazy, mad in love with each other. They wanted their wedding to be all about their friends & family having the best time ever and I am pretty certain that is what happened. My assistant Ashlea and I said several times we had never seen that many people stay on a dance floor for that long! Kathryn & Miles we wish you nothing but happiness as you start your new lives together with a new home, new jobs and new titles as husband and wife!

Southern Glam Wedding Ashley & Aaron

Southern Glam Wedding Ashley & Aaron

Oh I am SO excited that this wedding is on the blog today! Ashley & Aaron are a treasured couple for me. They are two people who just make you feel like you’ve been friends for 100 years from the moment you meet them. They are also super special because they are our second ever create clients–meaning they used all of our create vendor partners for their big day! Being our second create couple, we really enjoyed having the experience of working with all our studio partners and we brought this southern glam vision to life!

 

Ashley & her mom Sherry came to me with a specific vision but were struggling with how it was all going to be pieced together and be cohesive. For them, full wedding planning was the way to go due to Ashley’s busy work schedule and their desire for us to design & produce the entire event. We loved bringing in Ashley’s love for moroccan patterns into this southern glam wedding, and her love of all the spring colors. We really wanted some wow factor for the wedding and the hanging gold floral installations CeCe Designs created gave us that wow! Friends and family gathered, they hugged, they kissed & they said I do! Ashley & Aaron, you know you are one special couple to us & we can’t wait for dinner and game night friends!

Great Gatsby Wedding – Cheryl & Stephen

Great Gatsby Wedding – Cheryl & Stephen

I am not even sure where to start when talking about this couple. Cheryl & Stephen have a heart of gold and are the most giving people I have ever met. Cheryl is also a dream because she is one of the most organized brides I have ever had–I mean she made ME a binder, couldn’t have made this OCD wedding planner happier! Cheryl & Stephen were our first Create Studio couple. They used all the vendors housed in the Create Studio so this gave us a unique collaboration experience with our creative partners because often we would all be together and easily could communicate about them, ideas, and design plans.

 

Cheryl dreamed of having a great gatsby/1920’s themed affair but struggled with how to make it work at the venue they were using. We came up with the idea of making the reception more of a speakeasy/prohibition era feel. Guests LOVED all the fun props, signs, and photo booth with a jail background to make this come to life. Being her wedding planner, it was our job to not only run the day but we helped Cheryl with sourcing items, coming up with ideas & collaborating with CeCe Designs on bringing this theme to life. Cheryl & Stephen, it was our honor to be part of your day & lead your vendor team. We are blessed & lucky to know you and now call you friends.

Romantic Birmingham Wedding – Jennifer & Patrick

Romantic Birmingham Wedding – Jennifer & Patrick

Jennifer & Patrick

Jen & Pat were one of my favorite couples of 2016. Jen was living in Michigan, Patrick was working overseas for most of their engagement and they were planning to marry in Birmingham, Alabama where Jennifer is from and is a big Bama fan–Patrick is an Ohio State fan so Jen & I had a lot of fun teasing him about that 😉 Jen & Pat met through their work and through that work they traveled extensively. This became our theme for the wedding as this is at the heart of who they are and what they love. With our couple living out of state, full planning was the service for them as they needed boots on the ground and us to keep all their to dos in line. Most of Jennifer & Patrick’s friends and family were traveling for the wedding so welcoming them well to Birmingham and making sure things were easily accessible for the guests to do was very important. As always, our bride & groom & their guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and had a lot of fun. We hope you enjoy browsing their photos and sharing in the joy of their special day.
