Tag: seersucker wedding

Allison and Mark’s wedding day exudes so much brightness and joy–of course, fun seersucker details and their cheery color palette, accented by Lilly Pulitzer, didn’t hurt! This adorable couple wanted to create a wedding with old-fashioned tradition, but still incorporate a bit of uniqueness in their day. I love how they chose to stick with a traditional location–they actually celebrated their reception at the same beautiful, historic home where her parents had their wedding over 25 years prior!–but they added their own flair with fun decor. As a fellow Lilly girl, I’m pretty much smitten! Not to mention, the photo of Allison and Mark sharing a prayer with their families made me burst into tears–it’s everything I love about weddings wrapped into one meaningful moment.

Gracious, I’m so glad our friend and Blue Ribbon Vendor Faith Teasley was able to capture all these sweet details and exuberant joy!

Everything about our wedding, from the decorations to the food served to the ceremony details, reflected a simply Southern wedding. We chose to have our wedding in the spring so that Mark could incorporate his beloved seersucker, and I could incorporate Lilly Pulitzer. I rode to the ceremony and Mark and I left in a vintage car from the 50’s that was the perfect color. We served foods that we felt represented us and North Carolina, like carved pork, country-style vegetables, unique salads, and Carolina shrimp and grits. Of course, monograms were on everything and we included bow ties too!

Did you decide to do a first look? Why or why not? Mark and I really wanted our wedding to be very old-fashioned and traditional, but also incorporate some unique things. We wanted to see each other for the first time on our wedding day when I walked down the aisle, but we also decided to do a modified “first look” to share a few moments together before the wedding. We met at the corner of the home where our reception was held and held hands around the corner for a few minutes while exchanging small gifts and sharing a prayer with our wedding party and parents. It was a very special moment I will always remember, and we are glad we decided to do it.

Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We chose to state traditional vows, and we also did a responsive reading that gave our friends and families a chance to speak for us as a couple. Most of our family was in the wedding party, and they had been practicing the long line that they were supposed to recite during the ceremony. They somehow forgot when to start their line during the actual ceremony, and I’m sure the crowd still wonders why we all smiled and began to chuckle.
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? 1 Corinthians 13. Of course, these are common verses for weddings, but they have always meant so much to both of us and we wanted to incorporate them into our ceremony.

All of our vendors were excellent to work with and complemented each other and our vision very well. When we started the wedding planning process, we knew that one of the first things we needed to find was a photographer. I came across Faith’s photography and fell in love with her work immediately. She did the best job representing our wedding day and our style, while capturing all of the details that made our celebration so special.

What made you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they have any special significance to you? Our ceremony was held at my home church, Westfield Baptist Church, in Dunn, North Carolina. It was a very special place for both of us, considering Mark had actually been dedicated in the church before his family moved. The reception was held at The Howard House in Dunn. It is a beautiful, historic home in the downtown Dunn area, and where my parents had their wedding reception over 25 years ago!

Describe your wedding flowers. We wanted to use flowers that were the perfect accents to the ceremony and reception, without distracting from either of the spaces. Mark’s grandmother grew flowers and sold them at the NC Farmer’s Market for the longest time, and flowers have always been a big part of our relationship and our lives. We pink and white peonies, hydrangeas, tulips, and ranunculus in our bouquets and boutonnieres. At the reception, we used arranged our flowers in vintage blue mason jars.

We are such cake snobs! We were dreading the whole cake experience, because we wanted it to be gorgeous, but we also wanted it to taste good. We couldn’t decide on a flavor, so we went with two. One layer was a traditional almond wedding cake with buttercream, and the other layer was a vanilla cake with strawberry cream between the layers and a decorative buttercream frosting. It was beautiful, delicious, and perfect for our wedding.

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. We have known each other all of our lives, but because of our age difference, we were never in school at the same time and our paths rarely crossed. I was still in college, but would go work in my hometown during the summer and on holiday breaks. Mark’s first job out of college landed him in our hometown as well. I had my eye on him for awhile, and with a little help from my cousin, who was Mark’s co-worker, I went for it! I finally worked up the guts (very unlike me) to send him a Facebook message (mature, I know). I told him that I thought he knew I had my eye on him, and if he wanted to grab dinner and get to know each other better, to let me know. We went on our first date on Friday the 13th (yikes!) over three years ago and continue to fall more in love every day!
Tell us all about the proposal! We lived a decent bit apart from each other while we were dating because of where our jobs were at the time, but we would make a point to work out or grab dinner together at least once or twice a week. Mark had just gotten back from a week-long business conference and told me that if I wanted to see him mid-week, I would have to make the trek to his house for a run and dinner afterwards. I pulled up to his driveway, expecting him to be waiting for me in running clothes. He was still dressed up and rocking on his front porch, waiting for me. I ran up, asking why he wasn’t ready for our workout, and he just replied that he was relaxing and wanted me to sit with him. I sat with him for a little while, and then he pulled out a shirt box that was wrapped up. We never kept up with monthly dating anniversaries, but he noted that we had been dating exactly two and a half years on that day and that he wanted to get me something. When I opened the box, it was a new monogrammed beach cover-up with my now-new monogram. I had wanted this cover-up for awhile, but didn’t want to buy it and then only wear it for a little while before my monogram changed! I loved it, but I just kept saying, “Mark, this is so wrong.” I was slightly irritated because we were not married and it didn’t seem fair to have something newly monogrammed with the wrong initials! He then got down on one knee and told me that he was ready for my name to change. Some sweet words followed–he has no idea what he said, and of course, neither do I. I was in complete shock, but it was the perfect proposal for us because I never saw it coming. I may or may not have thrown the shirt box over my face and screamed, “Now?! Right now?!” I was so in such shock, I couldn’t even eat dinner afterwards!
When did y’all get married? April 18, 2015
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 200
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $10,000-$25,000
What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? I have a design background, so I designed all of the wedding stationery and used a local printer, which saved a lot of money. We made all of the signs and hanging decorations ourselves the day before and morning of the wedding.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? I think one of the neatest moments of our wedding was when we excused the crowd ourselves after the ceremony. Mark and I left the ceremony, followed by our attendants and family, and were able to spend a few moments alone while we waited for the processional. We then entered from the front of the church and excused our guests row by row. We loved getting to exchange hugs and sweet memories with each of our guests.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Take it all in, relax, and remember that it is just a day. If something doesn’t go perfectly, it will be okay. You have the rest of your lives to laugh about it!
What’s next for you as a couple? What memories are you looking forward to making together? We are heading to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket for a delayed honeymoon. After we return, we look forward to getting our home, yard, and life back in order and sharing it together for many more years to come. We also have to finish all of our furniture renovations so we can park in our garage again!

Oh y’all, you’re in for a real treat today! Even the title of this post had me excited! Then as I scrolled through the gorgeous photos from Pasha Belman I not only fell in love with April + Nick’s gorgeous design details, but their sweet demeanor and love for each other that seems to pour right out of the screen!

Yes, there are beautiful pink silhouette and monograms details. Yes, there is woodwork handcrafted by April’s father and his brothers, and yes, April’s something borrowed was their wedding date, that was the same as her late grandmother’s birthday. So sweet! And while traditionally, I would mention how adorable it is that April’s favorite part of their wedding film is her 6 foot 8 groom on his tip toes to see her come down the aisle, we all know what we’re staring at! THAT dress!

April absolutely dropped jaws in Ian Stuart’s Libertine seersucker gown! She found her dream dress in none other then Southern Weddings V4! We simply love hearing that, and I still do this day say that the Paper, Cotton, and Flour shoot in which we used the gown is one of my favorites features to date!

In lieu of individual menus, we placed printed thank you notes to our guests and vendors at each place setting. Also, we had decorated sugar cookies in the shape of our favorite southern states NC, AR, SC, and GA. The tag on the cookies read, “Once upon a time an Arkansas boy fell in love with a North Carolina girl. He proposed to her in Savannah, Georgia. Then, all of their favorite people were invited to celebrate at their South Carolina wedding! Thank you for being a part of their fairy tale.”

April, you did us proud!

My something old was a peacock lapel pin from my grandmother, Dorothy Jane Smith. My something new was my wedding gown. I borrowed April 7, the birthday of my late grandmother, Thelma Smith Pridgen, for our wedding date. My something blue was a label sewn into my wedding gown that read: “I found the one whom my soul loves. Song of Solomon 3:4”. The sixpence in my shoe was a gift from my Grandma Dorothy.

Before we went dress shopping, my mother bought several wedding magazines and passed them on to me. I found an amazing dress in Southern Weddings: The Libertine by Ian Stuart. I called my mom as soon as I saw it and told her I had found my dress. She asked me to describe it and said, “When I saw that dress, I knew it was the one for you.” I called several stores trying to locate a sample in blue and we went to see it a few days later. Since I had chosen such a distinctive dress, I decided to keep it a secret from everyone except my parents until the big day. On the morning of our wedding, I had the photographer and videographer capture my bridesmaids’ reactions to my dress.

How cool is that! I love the idea of an Adventure Book for your marriage, what a sweet way to join bucket lists, and create a life of complete adventure (excuse the pun!).

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: Our favorite detail was the arbor for the ceremony, a gift from my father, Randy Keith Pridgen, built using woodworking skills lovingly passed down to him from his father, the late Ernest Dixon Pridgen. My father and five of his brothers still work together in the commercial millwork company my grandfather started in 1948. Daddy’s brothers all helped him to perfect the arbor design in the weeks before the wedding. The metal hearts used to decorate the arbor and the reception were salvaged from a bus shelter built by the late James Ernest Watts, so that his little girl, my mother, would never have to wait out in the rain. He passed away when I was two and although my memories with him are limited, my mother has kept the love he had for us alive with her stories. I felt like he was present and gave us his blessing when the black cab that picked us up to depart the ceremony was named James. James also was the name of the man who took our engagement photograph in Forsyth Park. Photography is a passion that Nick’s father, Bobby Joe Dyer, has shared with him. The arbor was decorated with pictures to commemorate family memories and to honor those who could not be with us to celebrate our marriage. We incorporated our parents’ wedding photos onto the arbor as well as pictures from our childhood. The sign on the arbor read, “Memory is the treasury and guardian of all things.”

Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? We decided to stick with tradition and not do a first look. I am glad we made that decision because my favorite part of our wedding video is seeing my 6’8” husband stand on his tiptoes trying to see me above the crowd before I walked down the aisle.

After Nick and I became serious, I held back on monogramming items in anticipation that my monogram would soon change. Our wedding was the perfect opportunity to showcase our new monogram. Instead of having Flower Girls, Nick’s niece, Makayla, and my cousin, Callie, were our Monogram Attendants. They walked down the aisle carrying gray wooden monograms. Callie carried my maiden name monogram and sat on the bride’s side. Makayla carried Nick’s monogram and sat on the groom’s side. After the ceremony was over and we were pronounced husband and wife, the monogram attendants presented a monogrammed banner with our new couple’s monogram before we walked back down the aisle. For a Southern girl, getting married does not just entail changing your name, it means a new monogram! Our guests traveled a long way to share in our big day, so we did not want anyone to leave empty-handed. Our wedding favors were Cokes in glass bottles decorated with little silver bells and bags of roasted North Carolina peanuts. They were placed on a table with a sign that read, “Some things just go together.”

Describe your wedding flowers. Our wedding flowers were soft and romantic. Beth LeonGuerrero of Wild Flowers designed a hand-tied bouquet of spring florals including pink peonies, garden roses, lisianthus, blushing bride protea, astilbe, caliycina, phlox and blue centered anemones with nestlings of dusty miller, scabiosa pods and ostrich drab feathers, wrapped in grey. My bouquet was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. I decided to have it preserved after the wedding.

The wedding cake was a classic white three-tiered cake embellished with buttercream flowers and white buttercream peacock designed by Jim Smeal. The white peacock design was inspired by the birds of Magnolia Plantation.

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. Nick and I met on February 4, 2011, at a Fayetteville Young Professionals meet-up at Riverside Steakhouse and Oyster Bar. We both had noticed one another from across the room and luckily, a mutual friend introduced us! A few days later, we went on our first date, and we have been inseparable ever since. You always wonder how you will know when you have met the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, but it is like everyone says, “You just know”.
Tell us all about the proposal! Nick proposed to me in front of the fountain in Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia on May 17, 2012. It was my birthday and we were on vacation in our favorite city. While we were standing in front of the fountain, Nick hugged me and said, “Do you remember the night we met? My heart skipped a beat when you walked into the room. I think now that this was God’s way of telling me you are the woman I am supposed to spend my life with.” Then, he got down on one knee and asked, “Will you marry me?” Around this time, a bystander started yelling, “Look, they are getting engaged!” and came over and asked if he could take our picture.
When did y’all get married? April 7, 2013
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? About 160
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We spoke traditional vows. However, since our ceremony was outside, we decided to do a handfasting ceremony instead of lighting a unity candle. My favorite line from this ceremony was, “These are the hands that even when wrinkled with age will still be reaching for yours, still giving the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.” It was a reminder of the permanence and comfort marriage brings to a person.
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? “There is no moment of my life when you are not a part of me; you hold my heart; you guard my soul; you guide my dreams so tenderly and if my will might be done, and all I long for could come true, with perfect joy I would choose to share eternity with you”. –Robert Sexton
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. Instead of walking down the aisle after the chiming of the hour, my cousin, Katelynn, walked down the aisle ringing a bell and announced,“Let the wedding begin!” The Palmetto Strings Trio played during our wedding ceremony and at the reception. Nick is an avid Beatles fan, so our bridal party walked in to “In My Life.” We both enjoy indie music and are fans of Vampire Weekend, so we had our string trio compose an arrangement of “M79” for our recessional.
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? The most Southern things about our wedding, aside from being on a beautiful plantation in Charleston, were monograms and hospitality.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? The biggest challenge I faced was coordinating everything to match my wedding gown. The Libertine looks blue in photographs and gray in person. With the help of Francesca from Pure Luxe Bridal Consultants and Beth, I was able to pick suits, bridesmaid dresses and flowers that looked nice with both colors. Nick had no idea that I had chosen a non-traditional fabric, so he had a difficult time understanding why I would not agree that he should wear a seersucker suit.
What is the one detail or vendor that you were so happy to have as a part of your wedding? We were blessed to have a dream team of vendors! They had amazing professional talents and all worked together to create a day that exceeded our highest expectations. I would highly recommend all of them! One detail we both loved was the cornhole boards decorated with our silhouettes in the wedding colors, which my mother gave us as a pre-wedding gift. We were able to purchase the silhouette designs and use them throughout our wedding and reception.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Our favorite moment was seeing each other for the first time on our wedding day! I tried to soak in every moment as my Daddy walked me down the aisle to Nick. A close second was the emotion that our ceremony evoked from our family. I could tell that the details and our desire to remember our grandparents really touched everyone.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Before you plan anything, think about your priorities for the wedding. You want to contract with the best vendors, but you also need to decide on the emotion you want people to feel when they are at your wedding. Our must-haves were a fabulous wedding dress, classic bowties, and our awesome photographer, Pasha Belman. Those things aside, we wanted our families to feel as if they were being celebrated for loving us and shaping us into the people we are today. The biggest compliment we received on our wedding was that it was very sweet and sentimental. Seeing and hearing about how our wedding details touched our families was an amazing feeling.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? We are looking forward to starting new family traditions and building a happy home together. We hope to travel and adopt pets. Most of all, we cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives making new memories with our best friend!

The fun thing about bridesmaid dresses these days is that they’re actually fun. Right? I mean, they can still be a painful part of the planning process (as evidenced by my own struggles!), but at least there are far more options, and far fewer “rules,” than there used to be, which frees all of us up to find the perfect fit for our wedding and our style. I love how Lauren’s bridesmaids ended up in a dress that was a perfect blend of her aesthetic and background AND her groom’s — and delightfully Southern to boot!

Photos by Sarah DeShaw

These lovely dresses are the “Zoe” style by LulaKate in royal seersucker! From Lauren:

When pairing an authentic sailor from the north with a self-proclaimed princess from the Deep South, we knew the vibe of our wedding would have to be a compromise. So, we met in the middle. Incorporating the seersucker look for my bridesmaids was a must. The simple, clean print made with cool, airy fabric was the perfect pick for our hot August ceremony. Selecting the subtle stripes was the easy part. Deciding whom and where to purchase the dresses from was going to be the hard part… until I stumbled upon LulaKate, that is. Based in Charleston, SC, LulaKate’s fresh selections provided me with a pleasant and easy shopping experience that I couldn’t have been happier with. Every detail was flawless, from Zoe’s halter bows draping my bridesmaids’ necks to the soft blue and white tones that complemented the nearby sea. Our “traditional meets nautical” vision was brought to life on Jekyll Island, and with LulaKate’s creations, the wind in my hair and the Southern sea serenading us in the background, I couldn’t have dreamt up a more perfect beginning to kick off the rest of my life.

Thank you so much for sending these beauties our way, Sarah!

    […] Oh, how I love cotton bridesmaid dresses, and I particularly have a soft spot for seersucker bridesmaid dresses! For my own summer wedding, I desperately wanted cotton seersucker dresses, and they were so hard to find in regular styles, in the right color,  and never mind in bridesmaid dress styles.  Thankfully, the trend is back and J.Crew offers many cotton options, and brings us this seersucker look, too.  I also know that bridesmaid dress designers like LulaKate and Coren Moore do seersucker dresses now, as well.
