Google+ Southern Wedding of the Week: Louise + Drew, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Louise + Drew treated guests to an authentic Southern reception at the bride’s home in Texas.  Brooke Schwab photographed the poolside soiree, and Angela Nix planned the event.  My favorite detail – besides to too-cool masks + sunglasses rocked at the end of the night, naturally?  The gorgeous flowered confection from Susie’s Cakes.  Want a bit more?  Take a peek at Brooke’s blog post from the evening here.

Describe your wedding flowers: My flowers and bouquet were by Jonathan Andrew Sage, but because the wedding took place in my family garden a lot of the flowers were potted plants and trees from Newton Nursery.
Describe your wedding cake:  The bride’s cake was a dramatic white cake with purple Irises climbing up it. The groom’s cake was our French Bulldog, Pickles resting by Drew’s law books.  The bride’s cake was white almond flavor.  The law books were carrot cake and Pickles was chocolate.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding?  It really was a blast, my mother and I had so much fun. But if I had to say, a challenge was being patient to allow the day to arrive.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Walking down the isle and seeing Drew
What’s next for you as a couple?  What are you looking forward to in the future? We are looking forward to traveling as much as possible and just enjoyed being married.  We are so happy!!!

Congratulations, Louise + Drew!  We hope you always will be this happy together!

    The soft touches of purple are incredibly placed, the food is the epitome of comfort and class, and those CD favors are pretty much the best. I love when a couple can give a small gift that has a personal touch.
