String lights, all white table settings with sweet succulent-flled details and… a piñata! Maconda + Sacha’s elegant Texas wedding (with a twist) looks like my kind of party. I love how M + S played off the natural beauty of the perfectly Southern The Argyle mansion with their classically understated decor.

I also love the sense of family they so effortlessly created. Reggie from Phenom Photographers, who was on hand to document Maconda + Sacha’s big day, told us that one thing that struck him from the beginning with this couple was the overwhelming feeling of family. From the beginning I just felt like I belonged there, almost like a cousin with a film camera.

Such dapper gents! I ‘m quite fond of the trend of mixed bridesmaid’s dresses, and I must say I love that Sacha and his groomsmen went the mix’n’match route with their tuxes.

I love Maconda’s smile in the photo on the right. Her joy jumps right out of the screen!

The Byrd Collective did a stunning job creating florals that flowed perfectly with the lush landscape of The Argyle lawn. Sometimes less is more – there is such beauty in the simplicity of these arrangements.

How much fun do you bet this was? I love the idea of a piñata at the reception!

Thanks again to Reggie for sharing this beauty with us!

    Very classical wedding though it is very elegant… I have nothing to add, nothing beats the classic styles no matter how much we try.

    The dress is very beautiful. The fabric is very smooth and it is very shining.

It seems I wasn’t the only one who fell head-over-heels in love with Sidney’s lovely Anne Barge gown! The blushing bride + her groom welcomed their guests to an outdoor reception at the sprawling Bragg-Mitchell Mansion replete with oak trees, hanging lanterns and mix-and-match vintage china. Janet Allen of Angel Cake and Confections designed the couple’s delicate five-tiered wedding cake. My very favorite detail has to be the dramatic black-and-white shots from Studio A Photography – and the line of fireworks that ushered the newlyweds to their getaway car.

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I found my dress at a trunk show at the White Room in Birmingham. It was actually the last dress I tried on that day, and I wasn’t even sure I was going to like it once I put it on. The minute I slipped into it, I felt like a bride and I knew that it definitely was the one!
Describe your wedding flowers: I loved everything about my flowers! My florist did an amazing job making my vision come true. He used rich jewel tone colors that were perfect for our fall wedding. My bouquet was a mixture of white flowers including peonies, hydrangea, gardenias, ranunculus, lisianthus and garden roses. My bridesmaids carried a mix of hydrangea, gomphrena, dahlias, strawflower, roses, coxcomb, pepper berry and hypernicum berries.
Describe your wedding cake: Not only was my wedding cake absolutely gorgeous – it mimicked the lace on my wedding dress perfectly! – but it was by far the most delicious cake I have ever tasted! The cake had alternating layers of butter cream and hazelnut. In true Southern tradition, I just had to have a groom’s cake, too. Since we got married in the fall, I wanted the groom’s cake to be very rustic. The texture of the cake made it look like a tree trunk, and my favorite part about the cake was the yellow lab carved out of chocolate.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Standing up in front of our friends and family saying our vows. It was truly a special moment I will never forget.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are looking forward to traveling and enjoying life as newlyweds.

    I love this! The lanterns and the large monogram letters covered in flowers are my favorite! Two things I plan on using for my own wedding.
