Happy Monday, y’all! If you’re off to a bit of a slow start like I am, maybe today’s wedding will help get you in the spirit! (You know, the Monday-Funday spirit.)

Shelley + Greg’s wedding is fun, indeed! Is anyone else crazy for Shelley’s white “getting ready” dress and her adorable monogram and flower-adorned bag? It’s a good sign when you’re finding things you love in a wedding before the bride even puts on her wedding gown! (Shelley’s gown is actually her second white dress. Her first was ruined by the cleaners after her bridal portraits — yikes!) We’re loving the big pink bouquets and boutonnieres and the striped details, from the groomsmen’s custom ties to the wedding programs. Cheers to Virgil Bunao Photography who shared this fun wedding with us!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We actually met on Greg is from Cary, NC where I was born and we learned that we even went to the same pediatrician when we were infants! Greg drove down to Charleston last October for us to meet and we clicked immediately. We had an amazing weekend together and I knew that weekend that Greg was the man I wanted to marry. He met my family and all of my parents’ friends the following weekend and they, of course, loved him. Greg and I make a perfect team together as husband and wife and as friends.
Describe the proposal. Greg proposed to me at my parents’ house in Ohio on December 23. We were able to celebrate with my family until Christmas day and then flew to Cary to celebrate Christmas and our engagement with Greg’s family.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Nostalgically Southern, beautiful, and fun.
In what month did you get married? July
How many guests attended your wedding? 115
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? We love pink and green. The guys all wore khaki suits with custom made pink and green ties from M. Dumas & Sons. The girls kept it simple in pink J.Crew dresses and wedge heels, while the four children in the wedding wore custom-made seersucker john johns in green and dresses in pink with their monogrammed initials on the front. We wanted the entire day to be Southern and detail-oriented so we also provided pink and green flip flops in galvanized buckets, custom-made bottled water, pink and green koozies, pink and white striped ceremony programs, bamboo fans, monogrammed pink and green matchbooks for the sparklers, and more.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: To make a long story short, I ended up with the most perfect wedding dress just two weeks before my wedding. My wedding dress was ruined by the cleaners after my bridal portrait shoot and I was forced to find a replacement dress, which I wanted it to look as much like my original dress as possible. Lula Kate had a sample very similar to my original Lula Kate dress, but it was too tight for me. I took the dress to my seamstress and she worked magic. She lowered the back on the replacement dress to make it more comfortable and Lula Kate rush ordered a replacement sash to make my wedding day dress better than I could have imagined.
Describe your wedding flowers: Breath taking! Whitney far exceeded our expectations and we will never forget the flowers on our wedding day. We told her that we love pink and green and love tulips, peonies, and hydrangea. Whitney hit a home run with the flowers. She even brought a beautiful pink peony for me in a mason jar for the girls to put in my hair for the reception. I loved it!

    The girls in the office know, but I used to have an oversized jute tote bag very similar to the monogrammed one above. I loved that thing and wore it out! Such a great gift idea for the girls. I got mine for $5 at a wholesale trade show. They had all kinds of colors!

    This wedding is absolutely beautiful! Does anyone know anything about the dress the bride is wearing in the photo with the tote bag? It’s exactly what I’m looking for in an exit dress and ties in perfectly with out decoration motif.

Caroline + Tyler’s pink and green reception details made for Georgia vineyard heaven! Fluffy pink flowers in assorted vases sat upon lace runners and decked the heavy wood tables. I love that the newlyweds decided to incorporate aspects of their location in the details, including wine bottles in between place settings and place cards in the form of flagged Georgia peaches! I’m sure guests were delighted with the personalization, even after receiving escort cards doubling as fabric-banded favors. Another vision of pink and green? Caroline + Tyler’s simple but beautiful round-tiered cake by Frosted Pumpkin , decorated with Swiss dots and peonies. After cutting in, eating and dancing, the two made their way through a line of sparklers and into their vintage getaway car. Extra bonus points for their classic streamer and tin can decorations. Thanks again to Heidi Geldhauser of Our Labor of Love for sharing this lovely wedding!

What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Montaluce is very Tuscan and rustic but Erica, my wedding planner, and I were able to come up with nice Southern touches throughout the design of the wedding. We incorporated lots of peaches in the overall décor (including full wood bowls, table numbers, and head table seating assignments), milk glass, handmade lace, and some burlap. We also made a point to incorporate lots of handmade items such as the hand-painted wood signs Erica made. Candied pecans were also a part of our guest favors (and seating assignments!), which were tied in little kraft boxes with fabric printed to match our invitations. All of the paper goods and signage were absolutely Southern. The favorite Southern detail that was not planned was all of our college friends yelling the Ole Miss cheer, “Hotty Toddy” as we were being sent off from our reception to the Four Seasons.
Describe your wedding cake: Ours was a classic wedding cake with three tiers. Each tier was wrapped with a sage green ribbon on the bottom and was a different flavor (vanilla cake with raspberry-lemon Genoese filling, red velvet with cream cheese filling, and coconut) with a few big fluffy peonies on top! Tyler had a chocolate-mousse cake covered with chocolate-covered strawberries.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? A lot of brides-to-be have the privilege of being in the same city or state as their mothers, but my immediate family lives in Dallas, Texas where I am originally from, so the distance sometimes made the planning difficult. I am also a bit of a “Mama’s girl,” so there were a lot of emotions involved in this as well. I always thought I was going to be one of those brides that needed mom to plan the entire wedding, but Erica helped me out with so much. Fortunately, my mom and grandmother were able to fly in for the important things such as picking out my dress and seeing the venue, which I am more than grateful for.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Wedding planning! Erica was my saving grace.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Wow, there were so many funny and emotional ones. The most sentimental was probably my little sister’s sweet maid of honor speech welcoming Tyler as her brother and to our family. We are super close and she had been trying to come up with a speech all day but would start getting teary and had to stop writing. When it came time for her to give her speech, she put her notes away and spoke genuinely from the heart. The funniest memory was Tyler dancing and jumping up and down like a wild man with a large circle of people cheering him on during our reception.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We just moved into our first house so it will be a constant yet rewarding work in progress. Next summer, we are planning a trip to France, Spain, and Italy for our one-year anniversary. Having a family is extremely important to us, but we want to have plenty Caroline + Tyler time, which will involve lots of travel, seeing live music, visiting friends and family, and hanging out with our two dogs, which are our children for the time being.

    The colors, the details, that ring shot! I really love the idea of using a lot of little vases as centerpieces–and including a bunch of fruit too. So great!

I love that when Non + KG think back on their wedding day, what stands out most is how happy their friends and family were. Their sweet love story was followed by an intimate ceremony in what I can only imagine is a little piece of heaven. (Those vines! That gate! It pulls my heartstrings!) Non, looking for a comfortable yet elegant dress, went for a one-shouldered Greek-style number and complemented the gown with a green and pink bouquet. Not to be ignored, KG looked fine and handsome in his slick grey suit and shiny black shoes. These lovely photos are the work of Rensche Mari and we can’t stop staring at the details. Good thing Part II is coming up!

How did the two of you meet? (From the groom) We met at the bus stop in Johannesburg as we were coming home from work. We spoke for what seemed like forever without knowing each others’ names. I wasn’t looking for love at the time because I was nursing a broken heart and, while I believed in love, I wasn’t sure if I could survive it. Nonhlanhla got a car and needed an experienced licensed driver to ride with her and she, thank God, thought of me (I was blessed because it was winter and most importantly, because she turned out to be “the one”). Then as our story goes, we got to know each other, fell in love, and the rest is history.
Describe the proposal. He took me out for lunch at Signature Restaurant and he was acting odd. We had lunch and when dessert came, I was too busy looking at what he ordered that I didn’t even notice the ring on top my dessert. Then, he went down on one knee and told me how much he loved me and that he can’t imagine his life without me. He was so nervous during the proposal. I said yes and I noticed that half of the staff was looking at us while he was proposing. After, they congratulated us.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Beautiful, intimate, spiritual.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: We really liked the table setting, especially the frozen fruit. But the one thing that sticks out for both of us is how happy our family and friends were.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I was looking for a simple and comfortable, yet beautiful dress, so I went for a Greek style dress.
Describe your wedding flowers: Nude and peach roses – they really looked stunning
