Because there is no doubt that perfectly lit mornings punctuated with calming cups o’joe are something really magical. And if you think that’s as dreamy as it gets, just wait until you see how the rest of this beautiful day unfolds in THE VAULT, (hint: it’ll definitely make you a morning person)!

From Sawyer BairdWhen dreaming up your wedding day… I believe that you should always take the morning slow. As hard as that may seem. When dreaming up this session we wanted a classic bridal with neutral tones – along with a lot of emotion. Easily, your wedding morning is the first thing that came to mind.

The slow morning rise with a cup of coffee reflecting on the day that is about to be the most amazing day of your life is not only important, but beyond special.

Organic Soft Blue Parisian Wedding Inspiration

You’re going to want to grab that second cup of Monday morning coffee and cozy up to this utterly beautiful soft blue goodness from Sally Pinera—I promise it will make the start to your week that much better. Whether it be the organic, stem-stretching bouquet designed by Kelly Lenard or the intricately detailed dress by Gossamer Vintage, something from THE VAULT is bound to sing to your heart.


From Sally Pinera… Set against the Swan House, we hoped to exude a touch of organic elegance with hints of inspiration from Parisian colors and architecture. A custom made gown by Gossamer and shades of cool tones and blues were centralized as our choice of palette. We envisioned the beautifully aged historic building with bare walls and lush ivies to be overflowing as our two lovers celebrated their love.

Sweet Georgia Countryside Engagement Session

Easy, breezy, and practically perfect in every way, this sweetly Southern esesh from Simply Sarah Photography is the engagement shoot that dreams are made of. With stunningly soft afternoon sunlight, an ethereal (and on-trend!) off-the-shoulder summer dress, and chemistry that jumps right off the page, take in all the goodness from this golden hour engagement in The Vault right here!

From The Bride To Be…It’s funny because Sam and I can’t really remember when we met. We have been friends since high school in Clinton, MS (Sam was 2 years younger than me). After college at Mississippi State, I moved out of state, but we would still see each other occasionally. When I moved home to Jackson, MS nearly ten years later, we started hanging out a lot since we were the only ones of our friend group that was single and in town. It took a year of spending time around each other before I think God opened both of our hearts to the idea that maybe we were meant to be more than just friends. When you realize that you can’t imagine life without a person, the way you start to think about them changes and it is the most amazing and fun experience in the world. We knew we loved each other but I don’t think we realized how much that love would grow and bless both of our lives the way it has. So now, getting to marry the person that is truly your best friend in the entire world is just he icing on the cake for us! We can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together.

Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese & Prosciutto

Today, I am so thankful I work from home. Why? Because this recipe from Shannan Monson, RD of Nutrition Simply is literally making me drool. I wish I was joking. As someone who sits proudly on “team salty” over sweet, these images from Lauren Carnes couldn’t look more amazing to me if they tried. Oh, and they are good for you too. Sold, sold and sold.

Sometimes the simplest things make the biggest statement. These figs? They’re a no-nonsense, yes-we’re-really-just-really-that-good, side dish, dessert, or appetizer that requires zero fuss. Really. As a dietitian and nutrition coach, eating whole, seasonal foods is very important to me. But it’s even more important to me that you can throw together those foods in a delicious and satisfying way, with a baby on hip, work deadline looming, and still be prepared to eat and head out the door in under ten minutes flat. All I’m saying is, life is busy. Your food shouldn’t have to be, too.

This trio of ingredients will leave you drooling for more, plus it’s packed full of good nutrition. The goat cheese provides healthy medium-chain fatty acids that give you sustained energy and fuel your brain, the figs are a rich source of antioxidants which protect cells from damage and disease, and the prosciutto–which is often deemed a “bad” food–has much needed amino acids and healthy fats which will actually leave you feeling fuller, longer, helping to ward off sugar cravings later in the day. Plus, I can truly think of no better excuse to get dressed up and invite some girlfriends over for tea (wink, wink).

Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese & Prosciutto

Serves 0Ingredients
  • 8-10 figs
  • 10 ounces of goat cheese
  • 10 slices of prosciutto
  1. Make a cross section cut from the tip of the fig to the base, leaving the bottom of the fig intact.
  2. Repeat the other way, forming a small "x" on the smallest point of the fig. Stuff with about 1 ounce of goat cheese or until gently overflowing.
  3. Wrap fig in prosciutto and broil on a foil-lined baking sheet about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly brown on top.
  4. Drizzle with a honey glaze if desired and serve warm.

From Rach Loves TroyTo say that Amanda and Kyle were dream clients would be an understatement. Their hearts were all in, all the time. From the flowers, to the invitations, to reception decor, Amanda’s wedding was one of the most classically southern weddings a girl could ask for. From Forsyth Fountain to The Mansion on Forsyth Park, Savannah could not have been a more romantic back drop for their union.
