Sweet Home Montgomery

My sweet, sweet assistant Laura Jean and her Husband, Cody are traveling away from Sweet Home Montgomery in just a few short weeks. They’re traveling thousands of miles to a city that needs love just like the one we call home. colorboxphoto_30 LJ has been talking about her trip to Moldova with Stellas Voice for weeks. They couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to share Christ’s Love with a city of broken and hurting souls.  colorboxphoto_2 The Bell’s have a bit of fundraising left to do and have created some super comfy t-shirts to help in their efforts in rounding out their goal. Laura, Cody and their extremely talented graphic design friend Nalin have created some of the trendiest tee’s that reflect our city.  colorboxphoto_39 The shirts were printed locally through a non-profit, Urban Seed XChange, a mission to enrich the lives of urban youth through entrepreneurship. colorboxphoto_55 It’s simple.

Taylor + Taylor

Yup! You heard right! Taylor and Taylor said I do!  Isn’t that the cutest? Matching names! I wonder if I could find an Evan to marry?! That might be a bit much for the world to handle!

According to girl Taylor, Evan and Company came highly recommend from her sweet, sweet friends Heather and Ivey! I’m so thankful they put in a good word. I enjoyed every second of planning their wedding. They exchanged vows with a small private family only ceremony and reception at Wynfield Estate late September.

Her dress was gorgeous and fit her like a glove, but can we talk about those Kate Spade heels? That Bow, those straps = PERFECTION!

2014-11-09_0041 I’m a man of many talents, I wouldn’t put bow tying at the top of that list, but I’m pretty good at it. #whataman 2014-11-09_0042 I knew from our initial meeting with Taylor that Courtnie of Poppy Pedals had to design her invites. The fit and style of her work was PERFECT for Taylor and Taylor’s wedding.  2014-11-09_0043 Bride and Grooms usually have mixed feelings about a “First Look”. But when they agree to it, it’s pretty much perfect. Boy Taylor’s face is priceless.  2014-11-09_0044 Taylor’s eyes got water-y when she saw her bouquet. As a designer it made my heart happy. I used seeded eucalyptus as the base and used ivory roses, veronica, white ranunculus and lisanthus to create the finished piece. Of course no bouquet is compete without long hanging satin ribbons.  2014-11-09_0045

2014-11-09_0050 When I get married I want engraved cufflinks. So classy! But I wouldn’t expect anything less from boy Taylor. 2014-11-09_0058

2014-11-09_0052 a beautiful small intimate ceremony for Taylor and Taylor’s family.  2014-11-09_0055 This was one of my favorite elements from the day. That cross, the flowers and the table… OBSESSED!  2014-11-09_0056 I LOVE when I get a chance to share in a room reveal with a Bride and Groom before all of their guest arrive. It’s safe to say girl Taylor LOVED it.  2014-11-09_0051

2014-11-09_0059 Simplicity is always best. I couldn’t more thrilled with out everything turned out. Just gorgeous! The perfect about of classic elegance.  2014-11-09_0054 Because every Bride and Groom needs His and Her chairs.  2014-11-09_0060

2014-11-09_0061 You know it’s not a true southern wedding without a Peggy McKinney Cake. It was delicious as always.  2014-11-09_0053 Biodegradable confetti for the win! Don’t you like my photobomb up there?  2014-11-09_0065 I am a better person having worked with Taylor and Taylor. It was nothing but joy from day one we met and I can’t thank you enough for believing in me and trusting us to make your special day extraordinary.
