This beautifully gilded wedding of a former pageant girl and her Dr. is still making me smile! The wedding’s backdrop was the chippy and charming Race and Religious in New Orleans, LA and Greer Gattuso Photography captured every emotion and detail through film so perfectly! We designed the wedding with the idea of pure timeless […]

From the very moment we started planning with Megan and Phil, we knew their wedding should be the epitome of Southern elegance- just like them! Her delicate Monique Lhuillier dress set the tone for the design: soft, feminine, and custom.

I always doodled wedding dresses, bouquets and the occasional groom, all while dreaming of what my wedding day would […]

Design : the most fulfilling part of the planning process for me. (well, second only to my clients hugs at the end of wedding day) Our brides and grooms come to us at all stages of their design generation- some just with colors and a theme, others with ideas as specific as linens, cakes, flowers and […]
