Hello world! Meet Whitney and Ryan, aren't they darling? And how perfect is that light?!
Whitney and I met about a year and a few months before her November wedding. It's rare that I service a local bride but it seems this year I've had more than ever! She hired Belle Soiree for full planning and the fun began! I love Whitney for multiple reasons. The top ones that come to mind-
1. She loves Kate Spade more than I do
2. She is obsessed with black and white stripes.
3. She's crafty!
4. She used to work at anthropologie.
What a combination, right? Whitney chose The Cabildo as her reception space and the beautiful Rayne Methodist church as her ceremony location. All of her details were so sweet and very personal. One of my favorite items from her reception was her "sign in."
"Where you invest your love, you invest your life."
I don't think that statement could be anymore true. For my personal wedding, I opted for a "sign in" that everyone attending our wedding could witness. We used that quote above and all of our friends and family signed our marriage "certificate" that now hangs on my wall. Whitney loved the idea as well so Paper and Honey created a similar one that is STUNNING. I love little details like this that make a wedding unique and also allows you to cherish it forever. I'm sure Whitney and Ryan love walking past this beauty on their wall as much as I do!
We put together a stellar team for their big day. Whitney's lovely bridesmaids made black and white stripe table runners along with high boy ties that really tied the theme together. Dark Roux Photography captured all of her details and raw emotions so perfectly. Their first look photos are some of my favorite! Pure joy, pure happiness! Enjoy the magic!
Thank you to the amazing team of vendors that helped pull this terrific wedding together.
