Real Wedding: Karen & Austin

Karen and Austin had a lovely, culturally-infused wedding at Scarritt Bennett and the War Memorial last May. Elegant, timeless, and romantic best describe their style.  With a color scheme of blue, pearl, and silver, Brocade Design Arts transformed the spaces into something stunning. {Appropriately so, as StudioWed planner Simply Stunning Events was in charge!}

Paraphrased from Simply Stunning’s blog:

For the ceremony, Brocade created a warm atmosphere using candles, blue and ivory hydragea with white roses, and vases filled with green lily grass. The bridesmaids looked gorgeous in royal blue dresses, but the bride took everyone’s breath away in her vintage inspired gown, holding white calla lillies, roses, and orchids.

The celebration continued at War Memorial. The large auditorium was transormed into a warm and inviting atmosphere thanks to Brocade’s amazing centerpieces and blue and metallic linens. The couple chose a cajun style buffet dinner catered by the wonderful Chef’s Market. After enjoying the mouthwatering cajun seared salmon and buttercream white chocolate cake, the guests danced the night away.

Karen and Austin surprised the group with a performance by Chinese dancers to respect the bride’s heritage. The mixture of Chinese and Southern cultures created a unique and unforgetable event. After the happy couple danced their last song to “Only You” by the Platters, they made their grand exit. Their friends and family gathered with sparklers to see them off.

Kelly Plans a Wedding: Engagement Photography

Drew and I had the great fortune of trekking across a mini-mountain {me in ballet flats, Drew in cowboy boots} one GORGEOUS January Friday with Brett Price. By the time we got to the top {with a landing and the most stunning view}, I was peeling off layers and Drew had a new friend:)

I’m saving some of the BEST for our save-the-dates and to display at our wedding, but Brett just totally blew me away with these. {Read here for more info on Brett’s photography!} He truly captured the essence of our relationship… look at these pictures– you can’t help but to see our personalities and love for one another. AHHH, adore!!!!!!
