We’ve been known to mix things up every now and again and this week we’re pulling yet another fab switcheroo with a Thursday lineup of NINE gorgeous weddings and a morning, noon and night of sweet, sweet inspiration.  A Wedding Wednesday, sans Wednesday, if you will.  So, grab that cup of coffee, shut off those phones and cozy on up for all of the pretty.  It’s going to be amazing.

Up first in our lovely lineup is a traditional Little Rock affair captured by Eli Murray Photography.  A glorious marriage of heartwarming moments and uber-stunning details, it’s a classic soiree boasting beautiful florals by Tanarah — Luxe Floral & Event Styling and a whimsical meets modern vibe that is all sorts of fabulous.  Finishing Touch Event Design styled every moment to absolute perfection and it’s all just waiting to be devoured in the full gallery of images.  Join me there for more.

From Finishing Touch Event DesignMary Shannon and Aaron were married in a traditional Catholic Mass at the Cathedral of St. Andrew in Little Rock, Arkansas. Their reception followed at the Country Club of Little Rock and was a fabulous party from beginning to end. Everything about their wedding was perfectly southern, from the custom calligraphy invitations to the sweet “just married” cake topper. It was elegant, classy and so much fun! The most fun moment of the reception was the groom’s family tradition of drinking from a shoe. The bride and groom filled shoes with champagne and shared a drink for good luck! Then they continued to fill the shoes for their family members and guests, who all shared in the wonderfully crazy tradition. The most special moment of the reception was after the bride surprised her grandfather by changing into her late grandmother’s wedding dress (which she’d had shortened). The band played a song by her grandfather’s favorite artist, Frank Sinatra, and they shared a very sweet dance.
