From the Bride... My whole inspiration for my wedding started with my dress. I found my dress the first day I even started looking and fell in love with it!  I am not one for glitz, but the dress was perfect because it made a statement on its own. From that point on I had this whole image of everything kind of blending and coordinating with my dress.

After five years as a merchandiser at Ralph Lauren, and now at Intermix, I obsessed over the color of everything. I wanted everything from the invitations to the the color of the roses to blend, and make a neutral, romantic color palette. Deborah paid attention to every detail and we worked together to choose the perfect paper and ink color to make everything match. Our florist, Meredith, from Belle Fleur knew exactly what I wanted to achieve and put together a regal and majestic day. We incorporated tons of candles in the the hallway, which created a romantic and calm environment, where Adam and I saw each other for the first time. It was one of the craziest rain storms on the day of our wedding yet it was so peaceful inside the country club.

After having gone to Emory together, and knowing each other for almost ten years, Adam and I were beyond excited to party with all of our friends. I loved that we went from this emotional ceremony to a crazy party filled with tons of friends, high energy music, and plenty of food and drink!
