Erin + Fitzlee, y’all got style! Any couple who chooses to have their wedding in a Pecan Grove is sure to have a Southern fete, no? We love that the barn at McEachin Family Pecan Grove was E + F’s favorite part of the evening — the warm wood surroundings made guests feel right at home to eat, drink and dance. My favorite part (other than the string lights)? The mini pecan pie favors the newlyweds offered to guests at the end of the night. Southern and cute! Big thanks to Angela Cox for sharing this wedding with us.

Ah, the white dinner jacket. Definitely one of my favorite looks when paired with the right atmosphere!

Describe the proposal. FitzLee surprised me for Valentine’s Day with a map of New Orleans and a promise to take me over my birthday weekend. Before I knew it, we were in New Orleans! He rented an amazing apartment above a bicycle shop with a huge balcony overlooking Frenchmen street in the French Quarter. We listened to great music, enjoyed amazing cuisine, and walked all over the “Big Easy.” He planned our special dinner at Broussard’s for our last night there, and because it was also Easter Sunday I had no idea what was coming! Before we left for dinner he popped the question! Just after I said “yes,” a jazz band came marching down the street. It was not planned, but it felt like fate!

With a lounge setup like this one, who wouldn’t feel right at home? The vintage wooden trunk and custom pillows would make me want to settle in and reminisce about the happy couple.

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The entire day was a blur filled with all things wonderful, but I would say that spending the second half of the evening on the dance floor with each other and the ones we love most is what I will always remember!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Don’t let yourself get worked up over little details and hang-ups because on the day of the wedding, you don’t notice any of it! Live happy and in the moment!

In what month did you get married? June
How many guests attended your wedding? Around 350-400
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I found my wedding dress at the Gown Boutique in Charleston, SC. They were a dream to work with and my dress was the perfect fit in every way!
Did you decide to do a “first look”? No! We did not want to see each other before. We both wanted to save that moment until the time I walked down the aisle.
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding. I walked down the aisle to Cannon in D, walked back up the aisle to “Trumpet Tune” by John Stanley and we had our first dance to “That’s Where It’s At” by Sam Cooke.
Describe your wedding flowers: I wanted my flowers to be a mixture of creams, nudes, blushes, greens, and pops of blue. I didn’t care what flowers I had, I just wanted them to be within this soft color palette. David and Tony Starks, of Flowers by Starks, listened to my ideas of wood, silver, and vintage vases to create what I had in my dreams.
Describe your wedding cake or dessert: I didn’t want a huge wedding cake so we opted to have “kitchen cakes” with different flavors waiting to be cut. I wanted the cake to be simple and beautiful. FitzLee just wanted it to taste good. The topper was a vintage silver incense burner with flowers spilling out. The incense burner was a special piece to me because it was from New Orleans and was used by my “Aunt Bebe” in her wedding.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The barn because it helped to create the feeling of a home wedding. We wanted people to feel comfortable to eat, drink, and dance the night away!
What was Southern about your wedding? Everything… It took place in a pecan grove!
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? The Band!

    Hey y’all!!! This may be a ridiculous question, but is there any way for me to find out where the maid of honor got her dress? My MOH is dying to have one similar to it!!
