Whimsical Black + Green Winter Wedding

This bride loves black so she added a sash to her gown. The groom is Irish, so they incorporated Celtic dancers at their reception. These personal touches are what I love most as I dive into each and every wedding-filled day here at SMP. Smitten & Hooked captured every unique detail and if these hydrangeas aren’t enough of a tease, you have my promise that there is plenty more where that came from.


From Smitten & HookedThis couple wanted fun and different and boy they got it!

Andrew is from Ireland and a huge part of the wedding was Irish, including the Irish Celtic dancers that performed during the reception and the bagpiper who led them to their favorite Irish bar as their exit.

Britt loves black but knew her mother would kill her if she wore a black dress so she picked out the most fabulous Amsale gown and had a small black sash added, custom black jewelry, and killer Badgley Mischka black pumps! At the reception she had a short sassy black dress she danced the night away in!

Their details at the reception were amazing. The head table top was covered with a mirror top and just drenched in hydrangeas and they were everywhere. The flowers were probably one of our favorite aspect of the gorgeous reception! They also had ghost chairs and lots of gorgeous linens and candles everywhere.

Southern Style Biscuits and Honey Butter

Lisa Dolan has it right; a simple breakfast of buttermilk biscuits and honey butter is the key to happiness. It’s a mouth watering type of goodness that everyone should have in their cooking arsenal. Especially when you hear they take a mere 20 minutes to whip up. Twenty minutes of your time for a scrumptious honey butter infused treat? We’re in!

Southern Style Biscuits and Honey Butter
prep time
10 Minute/s
cook time
12 Minute/s
total time
22 Minute/s
Serves 0Ingredients
  • 2 cups all purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp honey plus more to drizzle over biscuits after baking
  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees
  2. Combine your dry ingredients in a bowl
  3. Cut the butter into small chunks (about the size of a sugar cube) and mix into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse meal
  4. Add the buttermilk and honey and mix until the ingredients are combined (don’t over mix – you want the batter to be lumpy!)
  5. Roll the dough in your hands using the extra flour. Be extra careful not to handle the biscuits too much! The more you handle the dough, the tougher your biscuits will be.
  6. Drop batter onto your pan leaving biscuits about 1 inch apart
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes
  8. Drizzle with honey and serve warm with honey butter (just use a fork to whip some honey into the butter)
