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_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.

Kelly and Adam

Oh how we love Kelly Hawkins. She was seriously one of the sweetest Brides we have ever worked with!

I was still working at Kim Box Photography when I got the phone call to meet with Kelly and Mrs. Janice.  Little did I know that Kim had thrown my name out there in the planner drawing pot! I was extremely nervous to say the least. Kelly’s Father is Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., Chancellor of Troy University. That’s all I could think about–

“Everyone knows them. There’s going to be hundreds of people there. Don’t say something stupid. Am I going to impress Mrs. Janice?”. The list went on and on.

Long story short I GOT THE JOB. I was excited, relieved and happy yet still extremely nervous.  Our first initial meeting was at their home. I remember sitting in that pretty white arm chair in their living room thinking to myself, “This is what I am suppose to do”. Kelly and I had an awesome chemistry from the first moment we met and I honestly think that is what put my mind at ease. I really felt like I was planning a wedding for my best friend.

Adam and Kelly were a pure joy to work with. I knew there was something special about them when they invited me to dinner with their friends a couple of a night before their weddings.  I was more than just a planner or florist to them, I had become a friend and that meant more to me than any compliment or paycheck.

There were so many special touches throughout Kel and Adam’s day that was reminiscent of them and their personalities. From the Baseball themed buffet table for Adam or to the special flower arrangement in the Foyer dedicated to Kelly’s Aunt. But I think my MOST FAVORITE “touch” was the gospel choir. They sang “Oh Happy Day” as the newly married Bride and Groom made their exit. I had goose pimples on my arms the entire time. It was magical.

Thanks again Kelly and Adam for allowing us to be a part of your special day.  It was truly an honor.

A HUGE thanks to my team for pulling this one off. Mom, Dad, Morgan, Rae, Andrew, Hannah, Jonny and Hillary… I couldn’t have made Kelly’s dream wedding come true without you.
