From start to finish, this wedding is all about heartwarming moments. Happy, tear-inducing, magical moments between a beautiful bride and her dapper groom, as well as her loving friends and family (see the seriously epic Father-Daughter First Look below). It’s also a tale of sweet southern elegance, with the planning experts at Desiree Dawn Events making sure every moment went off without a hitch, including the drop-dead gorgeous reception complete with yummy BBQ.

From Desiree Dawn Events… Britnye and Philip wanted a romantically sweet celebration for their wedding and they got just that. It was important to Britnye to have a candlelit ceremony so we had candles in jars down the aisle, lining the small stage, and string lights added to the warmth from up above. She collected gardenia candles and lots of vintage jars to use as decor along with antique lace and jute details. A favorite memory from their special day was the bride’s first look with her father followed by an even sweeter first look with her soon-to-be husband. They both wanted time to pray together before their vows, but Philip still wanted his first time seeing his bride to be while she was walking down the aisle. Their solution was to blindfold the groom and let them hug and hold hands for a bit. So sweet! They served delicious family style BBQ and cupcakes to their guests, enjoyed some dancing, then drove off in Philip’s grandfather’s sports car!
