Why have one when you can have two pairs of wedding shoes to treasure forever? This beautiful Bride had her blush Badgley Mischka's for formal pics and when it came time to dance the night away, slipped on sparkly sneakers. Designed, coordinated, catering and hosted by Sainte Terre, we have sweet touches from top to bottom for this Southern celebration - including a light saber ceremony exit. Olivia Lott captured that moment and more - see it all in our Vault this way!

From the Bride... Our wedding day was an absolute dream! From getting to Sainte Terre early in the morning until we were showered with confetti and out the door as husband and wife, everything was effortless! Sainte Terre was amazing. We booked the venue before it was even built, and this established a trust and bond between all of us! After countless meetings and several panic attacks, they were always the most supportive team! Every last detail that we had planned was right in front of me, and it was absolutely beautiful! The big day started off without hesitation. Makeup and hair arrived before the entire wedding party, Hillary was decorating and working her magic, and Holly was preparing the most delicious brunch for us! We spent the day soaking in all that was about to happen, laughing, and crying tears of joy together! All of the details of the day were absolutely perfect and everything I had envisioned!

This romantic wedding filled with blushes, creams, whites, and golds I had planned was here! Every last table, decoration and flower arrangement was placed to perfection. I had worked so hard on so many small details - like hand-folding each of the programs we used for the ceremony. They were a Love Me/Love Me Not origami fold like we used to make in elementary school about who we would marry. This particular program had fun details about myself and Paxton, and about the wedding party. I also wrote the script for all of my signage!

My Star Wars loving fiancé (now husband) even had a few surprises that day! The personalized Star Wars sugar cookies were not only amazing to look at, but tasted even better! He also had no idea (until it happened) that our recessional song was the Star Wars theme song or the our friends and family would be wielding light sabers as we walked down the aisle together as husband and wife to our reception! He was in shock to say the least!!

Our reception was so much fun and made for a night that we could never forget with our closest friends and family! Our guests could not stop talking about how amazing the food, desserts, and overall atmosphere of the evening was. We danced the night away to some of our favorite 90s boy bands (thank goodness for my Kate Spade glittered Keds) and ended the night being showered with confetti and escorted to our beautiful black vintage getaway car! We can't thank all of our wedding vendors enough for helping us transform all of our ideas into reality and giving us the most magical wedding day we could imagine!

From Sainte Terre's Event Designer/Coordinator, Hillary Moss... At Sainte Terre, I try to create a one-of-a-kind, personal experience for each and every one of my brides. We are not your typical wedding venue - my sister and her husband, as well as myself and my husband are involved in every detail of planning and 'the big day.' My sister is a chef and handles the custom menu from start to finish, and my husband is her sous chef. My brother-in-law Derek handles all of the front of the house and our beverage program. I handle all of the design and coordination. Together, we provide a truly custom experience... From one family to another.

We were especially close to Devon and Paxton, as they were one of the couples who booked their wedding with us while we were still in the beginning phases of construction. We only had a dirt pad and concept drawings! Aside from obvious answers like nature and keeping current on trends, I draw inspiration from getting to know my brides, grooms, and their families. More than just their likes or dislikes, but their overall style; this allows my brain to create and know it is the right design for them.

For this beautiful spring wedding, we really wanted to create a classic, romantic elegance with some unexpected fun thrown into the mix, which showcased Devon and Paxton’s personalities perfectly! Devon had a vision of greenery, neutral tones, and lots of blush! She wanted an elegant, formal ceremony/reception but nothing stuffy, which is where the light saber recessional came into play. Paxton is a true Star Wars fanatic, so as a surprise, Devon planned a secret chapel exit complete with multi colored light sabers and the Star Wars theme music. Paxton’s reaction was priceless and the guests really loved it!

As you entered the reception, the yards and yards of blush chiffon draping were incredibly eye catching, yet soft. The mix of loose floral arrangements, wooden farmhouse tables, and pops of gold in the spacious barn setting made for a very romantic evening. The dessert bar was another very personal and fun element that was shared with their guests that evening. Along with a gorgeous cake, the styled dessert bar was filled with a mix of many fancy morsels including some homemade treats from the bride’s family and some incredible Star Wars themed cookies! All in all, the day was filled with family, friends, and tons of personal touches that made this day comfortable yet luxurious and almost as special as this sweet, beautiful couple!
