What can I say about this wedding, there is so much. First of all they are such a lovely couple. Matthew, known as Bubba to friends and family, writes Jennifer love letters daily, I wanted to incorporate them into the design in a meaningful and creative way. Her father Bill, has been the pressman at the Arizona Daily Sun for nearly 30 years so I had a few the love letters printed on news print, burned the edges to give them a vintage flare & placed at each guests seat.

Jennifer wanted Victorian rustic meets Louisiana, I think we achieved that. The ceremony site was in a small clearing in front of a fallen tree. I placed Spanish moss and roses on the log, and the aisle was lined with roses from Bubba's grandmothers garden (which I picked for him) and tulips (his favorite flower) in mason jars and tied to rebar.

The reception was inside the lodge and we created an elegant and romantic feel by lining the tables with lace runners that were cut by Anne's Aleterations, magnolia leaves, Spanish moss, roses & candlesticks. I brought in old suitcases and we had photos of each of their parents, and grandparents wedding photos as well as child hood photos of them both.

Below are some my favorite photos from the day from the amazing cameron + kelly studios! Jennifer looked stunning, her hair & make up was done by her best friend Jennifer Rand Walker at Face Body Beauty

The cake was amazing! Andrea from Sedona Cake Couture used vintage buttons as molds to create the beautiful details.

What an honor to be a part of such a special day!
