Whether you’re clicking through wedding blogs on your lunch break or catching up with us once you get home from work and switch gears to planning mode, consider today’s post a little breather. We’re all about the practical and the pretty around these parts, but sometimes, we don’t want you to worry about filing away important info or looking for details to pin…we just want you to get excited for your big day! Besides, when else in your life do you get to wear a stunning gown, dance the night away with both your sorority sisters and your grandparents, AND (last but far from least!) commit your life to your best friend? Jaicee and Kolton’s wedding film by Hampton Road Studios will hopefully be a sweet reminder of all of the above and more. We loved this peek into their special day beneath the most gorgeous Spanish moss!

From the bride:
We had originally planned to have our ceremony and reception on St. Simons Island, Georgia, but after visiting my grandparent’s coastal house so much and remembering why we loved that location, we couldn’t pass up the beautiful Spanish moss-covered oak trees and the chance for a waterfront reception.
Southern grace and God’s presence are so important to us, so the prayer before the ceremony (instead of a first look) was so special! The emotion of seeing each other for the first time down the aisle was simply breathtaking. We also decided to write our own vows, which we will cherish forever.
A Southern wedding is not complete without a long farm table, so we chose that as our head table. The tables were lined with driftwood, English roses, oyster shells, succulents and Spanish moss. My mom takes pride in her beautiful ferns, so we had to include those, too! We served two of our favorite Southern hors d’oeuvres; crab cake balls and chicken salad pastries. My dad hand made our dance floor out of wooden pallets. I also took up calligraphy in my spare time and designed each of our signs at our wedding. It was so special to see each of those in the photos and video knowing that I did them myself!
