Building my wedding registry was one of the most exciting parts of my wedding planning process! I’m a gal that loves lists and picking out cute and useful things together for our home was a blast and a breeze!

Classic Southern Wedding

Romantic Weddings

A sweet love story for the ages. I love Kathleen and Daniel’s wedding day. It’s infused with beautiful emotion and Feather and Stone wonderfully captured those moments on camera. Wed-101 pulled out all of their tricks and the lavish day looks like it was torn out of the pages of an Italian fairy tale, with long rectangular rows of tables and white taper candles standing tall amongst the white flowers and green foliage. Classic wedding days like this always get me a little misty-eyed!

From the bride, Kathleen: Daniel and I met when we were 16 and 18 and four years later we got married in what we called, “a piece of Italy in sweet Georgia.” Moments before our wedding ceremony, Daniel and I were able to see each other. Tears ran down our faces as we looked into each other’s eyes and declared our vows. It was all so heart felt and magical. The whole wedding process was such a dream and it meant so much to say “I do” in front of all our closest friends and family. I love Daniel with all my heart and I’m so thankful that I now get to love him for the rest of my life.

Mermaid Bride Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Mermaids are all the rage right now. Now that warm weather has dawned (for most of us!), the coral pinks and seafoam greens are ideal for the coming seasons. While I have seen an increase in mermaid trends, I haven’t seen them used for weddings or wedding inspiration until now! Chickadee Events and Virginia Ashley Photography certainly put their hard work into this shoot, and I love that the mermaid inspiration really comes through in such an elegant way. The Proper Petal added to the feel by using bright colors in the table blooms with small vases filled with solo stems of flowers; my favorite being those beautiful orchids. Topping it off, of course, was the mermaid silhouette wedding dress that stole the whole show.

From the photographer, Virginia Ashley Photography: When planning the styled shoot, I wanted to go for something mermaid-like! I have been refining my brand and what I want my style to reflect. I wanted this shoot to be a great reflection of my new brand and the type of couples I love! I was thankful for the sweet couple I had for this shoot! Gabrielle was the perfect mermaid inspiration and looked like a dream in the wedding dress!
