    This wedding is the best I have seen all year! The colors and the amazing decor touches~ It is all simply breathtaking. I love her hair. I agree with Annette, this wedding looks like it is straight out of a classic movie. Wonderful work.

    OK, those flowers on the head table are KILLER! That room is glowing and the bride is absolutely beautiful. She looks like a movie star. I agree with all of you… so cinematic.

    Favalus, dahlink, favalus! I can’t get over that menu with the ranunculus. This is like swimming in springtime!

    The grandparents are so sweet. I want to be like them when I am 80 and stay up all night dancing under the moon. Very lovely wedding and a lovely couple. I really enjoyed the interview as well. I love the mom wearing the band member’s hat and dancing away!

    I am a Mississippi girl, born and raised. So it is a delight to see such romantic weddings coming from my home state. We Southerners know how to throw a party! Gorgeous wedding!

    This wedding is gorgeous, I look forward to seeing more of it. The south is truly beautiful, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

  3. avatar Wendy reply

    This is what I always imagined my wedding to be…outdoors and in sync with nature. I’m a New England girl so I’m familiar with the richness and serenity of a lush, green garden…although they pale in comparison to the South!

    I wish I could get Sterling pup to behave long enough to pose in a cute flower (boy) wreath like that! so cute!

    I have known Catherine all her life and know her to be genuine, gracious and loving. The most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen and one that holds many wonderful memories for both families. Thank you for featuring this most special occasion.

    I could not believe all the writing was hand-crafted. Every piece of work was so beautiful that I still think of it a year later. Because of her fantastic work on this wedding, I got Brenda Griffin to do my birth announcements so thank you Catherine for introducing her work to me! Now i can’t have an event without her doing the invitations!
