How I got into weddings: Chelsey: Food! I thought I wanted to be a chef at one point. Then, my love of food led me to catering, and catering led me to wedding planning and design. Katherine: Working in PR and Catering led me to find that while all events are great, weddings are the best kind!
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? What we love most are the family traditions and heirlooms: the legacy table, Momma’s veil, Grandma’s cake topper.
Favorite part of a wedding day? The moment before the bride walks down the aisle feels sacred to us. In this quiet few seconds with father and daughter, she is about to walk to where all the people she loves are gathered in the same place. The anticipation and joy of this moment is so powerful. It is such an honor to witness.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Remember to plan for your marriage, not just your wedding. Take in each moment of your wedding day. Be each other’s best friend. Love and forgive unconditionally. Oh, and hire a wedding planner!
