So happy to finally get to share one of my favorite weddings from this past year at The Stave Room. Aubrie and Trae were so wonderful to work with… aren’t they cute? Aubrie and her mom had a gorgeous vision for her day, and I was thrilled they hired me to help make it happen. Her mom is so creative – she actually MADE the grapevine lights over the dance floor and recovered two small settees to use at the wedding. Isn’t that amazing?

We loved incorporating some details from New Orleans, where A & T fell in love, and also giving a nod to the groom’s French heritage. Thanks to Rustic White Photography for the beautiful pictures… see the full feature here on Every Last Detail!

Magnolia leaves were used throughout the event. Magnolias are Louisiana’s state flower! At cocktail hour, guests enjoyed an oyster bar, French 75’s, and Southern Mules (made with American Spirit whiskey – the venue’s own!). Following the first dances, guests were invited to a Southern buffet with fried chicken, collards, grits, mac and cheese and more. Tables were named after the couple’s favorite spots in NOLA.

Hand tied lavender was placed at each setting. Such a pretty detail for Aubrie’s guests, with inspiration pulled from French lavender fields. The architectural pattern in the linens reminded us of the cast iron gates and balconies of Creole homes.

The New Royals kept the party going, and guests also enjoyed a photobooth with purple & gold props. The couple exited with sparklers to a gorgeous Rolls Royce… our fave!

Joana and Ryan’s midtown wedding was studded with personal touches that showed their lively, joyful personalities. Throughout the day, this couple emphasized their loved ones, especially their pets, who joined their First Look portrait session and adorned their wedding cake.

The couple and their guests danced the night away while a (perfectly color coordinated) sun set over their rooftop reception. So beautiful! Thank you Hannah Woodard for sharing these lovely photos. We loved working with you Joana and Ryan! 🙂 Thank you for letting us share in your joy.

Happy Holidays, sweet friends!

We are so excited to share Kendrick & Mike’s winter wedding at Summerour from this past December. Winter weddings end up having some of my favorite details. In Georgia, the season passes too quickly!

Kendrick was so easy to work with – laid back, but had a stunning vision. We are honored to have been part of their beautiful day, which ended in a killer dance party with Fernando from Lethal Rhythms. Happy One Year, Kendrick & Mike!

I have a slight obsession with 30A. The sweet little towns of Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary, and Alys Beach are really beautifully done – each one has its own feel and design, all perfect for destination weddings! I will follow weddings anywhere – but especially here.

This inspiration shoot in particular follows the sweet storyline of a couple’s private getaway to Alys Beach to celebrate their one year anniversary with a vow renewal.

Thank you so much to Simply Sarah Photography for these beautiful photos and to Style Me Pretty for the feature. Check out the full feature on Style Me Pretty here.

It was such a joy to experience the happiness that radiated around Andrea and Tyler’s wedding day. We loved all the personal touches that were planned throughout the whole day- from the cross Tyler built for the ceremony to the hilarious garter toss show. It’s easy to see these two have something very special.

Congratulations Andrea and Tyler! Thank you for letting us be a part of your story!

Aren’t Stacie and Scott precious? Their July Summerour Studio wedding was a joy to be a part of. My favorite part is when the DJ played “Stacy’s Mom” and Stacie and her mom went crazy on the dance floor. That may have been one of my favorite moments of last year – haha!

Enjoy their photos from Photosynthesis Studio. Thanks to our sweet friends at Bloomin’ Bouquets for the referral! (They’re the best, y’all.)

We loved being a part of Natalie and Arif’s day! We met Natalie while setting up for a previous bride’s wedding at Callanwolde. Her personality was so infectious that we followed up with the venue to see if she still needed a coordinator. Lucky for us, she did. 🙂 It was an honor working with this sweet couple.

Natalie and Arif, we wish you all the best in your marriage!

When we first met with Rachel about her big day, we loved her vision for a moody floral-inspired event. This wedding was special to us since Rachel has been a model in many styled shoots in the past couple years. We’re so happy that she found Taylor and we loved being a part of their story.

Thanks to Rustic White for sharing these beautiful images. We hope you enjoy them!

Looking through their wedding photos one year later, it’s easy to see there was rarely a moment all day where this couple wasn’t dancing with joy. We loved bringing Mandi + Daniel’s beautiful and unique vision to life. The whimsical and bright florals were full of life, the dessert bar was filled with five different types of pie, and the personalized pint glasses were a perfect favor for guests to use at the local brewery venue, Creature Comforts.

Happy 1st Anniversary Mandi & Daniel!

Sara and Will’s wedding in the North Georgia mountains was absolutely perfect. I met Sara in college, and as a fellow art student, fell head over heels for her incredible work. Her style is completely up my alley. Sara assisted me for over a year, so I was incredibly excited when she asked me to be part of the day. She and Will are perfect together, and this video by Still Co. completely captures their joy! I hope you love it as much as I do!
