From the Bride… My husband and I had been dating since we were 16, so needless to say there was lots of excitement for a day that was over seven years in the making. Our wedding was SO much fun (as your own wedding should be) and was full of sweet charming details, many of which were DIY projects. I am monogramming fiend so I was determined to incorporate monograms throughout our big day. We had lots of monogrammed touches from our cake, to my veil, to moss covered letters on the red church doors. My mom, mother-in-law and I even made all the burlap runners for the tables! I didn’t have a wedding planner or event designer so each detail was most definitely a labor of love.
We wanted the wedding to be very family-oriented, cozy and full of southern charm. The reception was decked out in milk glass, mason jars, antique books and delicious southern comfort food. I spent the months leading up to the wedding scouring antique stores, thrift shops and even had my family members on the lookout as well. The menu included shrimp and grits, pulled pork sliders, collard greens and fried green tomatoes. Our caterers out did themselves and the food was a big hit with us and the guests!
Needless to say, it was fun collecting all the items and working on the DIY projects, but the joy of our friends and family, and finally becoming husband and wife is what really made the day for us!
