Lydia and Luke

We are back! It has been way too long since our last blog post but we are back to share some awesome weddings. First up is Lydia and Luke. Lydia and Luke’s wedding last fall was a blast. I mean check out the groom’s dance moves! Lydia wanted to honor her heritage by having the traditional Chinese wedding reception. I learned that this means lots and lots of food! It was a 10-course feast of some of the most delcious Chinese food I have ever seen. Lydia also changed into a beautiful Cheongsam, chinese dress, for the reception. It was a beautiful wedding and I am so happy I got to be a part of it!

Lucy and Wade

When we met with Lucy about her August wedding I was so excited to hear she wanted a brunch time wedding! There is something sweetly southern about a brunch wedding to me. Mimosa’s, bloodymary’s, sundresses, hydrangea’s, shrimp and grits, and bluegrass are all things this southern girl loves. And to top it off Lucy and Wade were such a lovely couple to work with. Thanks for letting me share in your special. It was beautiful!

Mother-of-the-Bride Gift

Sometimes it feels like the Mother-of-the-Bride gets the least amount of credit. She doesn’t get a special dance with her daughter. She doesn’t usually make a toast. And she is usually the one putting together all the last minute details (on top of dealing with all the last minute crises… Well, unless you have a coordinator, *ahem*, but I digress.)

Maybe it is Mothers Day that got us thinking of Mothers. Or maybe it is just the fact that we see these special ladies putting so much time and effort into their daughter’s wedding without much recognition in return.

So that your mom knows how much you appreciate her and all her work, it might be worth grabbing her a little something on your big day.

Here are a couple unique ideas:

A customized chalkboard, for the shabby-chic mom.

A charm bracelet, for the hip mom.

A framed picture on a plaque, for the sentimental mom.A unique piece of jewelry, for the elegant mom.An embroidered handkerchief, for the traditional mom.
