Traditional Country Club Wedding

I may have mentioned a time or two that no one does rustic chic quite like the state of Texas, but did you also know that they have quite the handle on traditional affairs, as well?  Yep, The Lone Star State is basically made for classic nuptials and when you throw in the talents of Keely Thorne EventsEvents In Bloom and Nancy Aidée, it takes it to entirely new level of awesome.  Bask in the pretty right here.

And a sweet film from The McKellars

From Keely Thorne Events… What do a Southern couple living in New York require for an unforgettable wedding? Just your typical Texas soiree filled to the brim with details, charm, and of course Southern hospitality! Caroline knew from the beginning that she wanted a soft, romantic wedding with a few modern twists on her traditional style and that is exactly what she received! The wedding weekend started with a a bridal luncheon at the Houston staple, Brennan’s of Houston, and a surprise shopping trip for the bridal party to the Color Bar at Kendra Scott. That same evening guests enjoyed an intimate and heartfelt rehearsal dinner at Ouisie’s Table where a live chalkboard artist detailed seating assignments as guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. And the night was not finished yet….a Fiesta Welcome Party was then hosted at the bride’s Aunt and Uncle’s home that went into the wee hours of the morning and where guests enjoyed specialty cocktails and food with Mexican flair along with a mariachi serenade. Phew…and that was just the beginning!

The wedding day was a beautiful, relaxing day building up to an emotional ceremony and P.A.R.T.Y. where the band kept at least 200 people on the dance floor until the very last song! Oh…and one more event! Since the couple had so many friends and family (at least 100 hotel rooms!) that traveled near and far for the couples celebration, the parents of the groom hosted an all-out Sunday brunch for guests that included everything from biscuits and gravy to a ‘grab-and-go’ for those needing to go quickly to the airport. It was truly an unforgettable weekend for an truly unforgettable couple!

How to Assemble a Bouquet

Flowers just so happen to be a favorite of my favorite things, and a good floral DIY is much appreciated where this black-thumbed blogger is concerned, so when Tamara Menges offered up five tips to making the most beautiful bouquet, I was all over it. And then I saw the images from Christa Elyce Photography. You guys, gorgeous Tamara taught her cutie pie husband how to pull a bouquet together, and it’s adorable AND helpful!

Simple Shabby Chic Bridal Session

Bridal sessions are the best, don’t you think? A day to get all dolled up on your beautiful gown (and let’s face it, the more you get to put that beauty on, the happier you are) and play in front of the camera. As Southern Charm Photography has absolutely proven with these images, the bridal session is really the best.

From the photographer… Meet Bethany. A bride as natural and as beautiful as they come. When Bethany called me and told me she wanted bridals that were very simple and natural with a little shabby chic thrown in, I knew exactly what we needed to do! Bethany and her fiancé had to endure a long distance relationship, which is why we felt the need to include the globes with our shabby chic set up! On top of that Bethany and her family created her bouquet as well as her lovely sash for her dress! It was such a joy to photograph her in all of her happiness!
