This sweet fête reads like the most darling of southern fairytales – complete with a dashing prince and a charming southern princess. It’s a little bit country, with a side of style, and filled to the brim with the prettiest blooms you ever did see. It’s all made even better because we get to see it all unfold through the gorgeous images from Kt Crabb Photography, and they are all sitting pretty right here.

From Kt Crabb Photography…Heather and Alex were married at a local church and continued the celebration at Heather’s grandparent’s lake house. It was a sweet southern affair complete with sweet tea and honey. Loved her dress with sleeves, the ring bearer’s pink bow tie and the delicious cupcakes.
It’s a story of a small town Florida gal who met a sweet southern gentleman from North Caroline. They started out as friends, but everyone could tell there was something more to their friendship. Their sweet story continued as Alex proposed to Heather during sunset on the west coast of Florida. As they entered into the planning stage, they knew there was no better way to honor their roots than to celebration at Heather’s grandparent’s lake house. It was a true southern affair complete with sweet tea and honey.
From the Bride… The inspiration for our wedding was a country, vintage style. We had BBQ, lawn games, and lots of sweet tea! We also incorporated a lot of burlap and lace. We wanted to have a laid back and fun atmosphere. ‘
I found my wedding dress by looking all over Pinterest. I fell in love with a lace dress and did some research and found out that the dress was from The Perfect Dress in Utah. They shipped me the dress, and a sweet friend of my family helped alter the neckline. My grandma then helped make the dress perfect by adding some final touches.
One of my favorite details of our wedding day was all the beautiful flower arrangements. We had roses, garden roses, baby’s breath, carnations, and peonies. Each arrangement was displayed in a variety of different vases such as milk glass, large mason jars, tea cups, and antiqued tin cans. All of this was designed by special friends who volunteered their time.
One of our favorite memories of our wedding day was being surrounded by family and friends. We had so many family members and friends come together to help make our wedding day so special. It was overwhelming how much help we had during the months leading up to the wedding and on our wedding day. They helped make our day everything we dreamed of and more!
