Emily and Justin, surrounded by their family and friends, married in a small intimate ceremony at 701 Whaley in Columbia, SC. We just love the simplicity of the greenery, minimal florals, and candles throughout this event.
We had the pleasure of getting to know Marjorie and her family in the months before the wedding and we just adore them. They are just the sweetest family and we’re sad that our time together planning came to an end. Marjorie and Matt said their “I Do’s” surrounded by love from their closest friends and family at Trinity on the Hill in Augusta, GA. They danced their way into the night at their gorgeous reception at the Augusta Country Club.
When Angelyn called me after Kemper & Charlie got engaged, I couldn’t wait to get started on planning Kemper’s dream wedding. I mean how hard can that be when you have the beautiful backdrop of the Highlands Country Club to work with? From the beautiful mountain views and the lush gardens throughout the grounds it just just gives you all the feels. Speaking of the lush gardens, Charlie’s grandmother, who is a master gardener, helped design those gorgeous gardens you’ll get a glimpse of.
Kemper absolutely stunned in her Anne Barge gown and the timeless heirloom veil that has been passed down from generation to generation (worn by her great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister, and now the beautiful Kemper). Of course, we can’t forget about Charlie, who looked dapper as ever in his white dinner jacket and a smile from ear to ear. I just love how the ever talented Lauren Carnes captured the love between these two so well.
I cannot tell you how happy I am that I have come to know the Peacock’s so well the past few years. They have truly become dear friends of mine and I am so grateful that they entrusted me to design both Kemper and Kathryn’s wedding days. I cannot speak highly enough for the Peacock family, they are absolutely lovely and it has been the greatest blessing to be able to be apart of such an important day of their daughters lives.

Kirsten and her mother, Ginger, were so lovely to work with in the months leading up to the wedding. We just loved the color palette that Kirsten choose for her bridal party and her florals. Kirsten and Hughes said their vows at Saint John United Methodist Church in Augusta, GA. They were joined by their friends and family at the Downtown Augusta Marriott Hotel for the reception where they danced the night away.
Surrounded by family and friends, Claire and Jonathan said their I do's at Enterprise Mill in Augusta, GA. It was such a pleasure working with Claire and her family, they are such a joy and truly are great people. Ashlyn Cathey captured the joy of the day flawlessly from the getting ready to the unique exit with the old classic car.
Blythe and Zach had a lovely wedding ceremony at Trinity on the Hill followed by a reception at the beautiful Augusta Country Club. Blythe and her mother were such a pleasure to work with in the months leading up to the wedding and we are so happy that we could be a part of their wedding day. Blythe made a stunning bride and I just love how the images by Britt Croft bring out the joy and happiness that surrounded them that day.

Hannah and Drew had a beautiful ceremony surrounded by friends and family at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection. Hannah, from head to toe, embodied true southern elegance that Olivia Griffin Photography brought out so beautifully in her photographs. Looking back at this spring wedding we just love the timeless, classic look that Hannah envisioned for her reception at The Old Medical College in Augusta, GA.
Maddie and Andrew are a fun loving, energetic couple whose joy is contagious. They were wed in a beautiful ceremony at Trinity on the Hill followed by a beautiful reception at the Augusta Country Club. We love that we were able to bring Georgia and Mark's daughters vision to life not only once but twice. Having known Maddie's parents for many years its always an honor when they entrust me with the most important day of their little girls lives. It's such a pleasure when the father of the bride is such an enormous part of the planning and when you have such an organized mother of the bride. In the months of planning, it was such a pleasure working with the entire close knit family that they are.
It was love at first sight with Liz and Jordan who's love bloomed in a bar in Dallas, TX. They celebrated their marriage in the backyard of her parents home in Aiken, SC. The home's original grotto made the perfect backdrop for her and Jordan's intimate wedding ceremony surrounded by their friends and family. Kaitie Bryant captured the love and happiness between Liz and Jordan so beautifully. There was not a single moment throughout the day that we didn't see a smile from ear to ear. Liz's stunning wedding gown was custom designed by Lea-Ann Belter, a Canadian designer, who brought her imagination to life when she created a gown to resemble the ones her mother and grandmother wore when they were wed. It's always such an honor when I am entrusted to design weddings for a friends daughter and in this case I was able to design the weddings for both Liz and her sister Ellie. I was able to catch up with Liz and we were reminiscing on her "stress-free, picture perfect wedding day". She loved having a birds eye view from the upstairs sun room where she and her sisters were getting ready, listening to Brooks Dixon Band rehearsing and watching all of the amazing vendors working so hard to ensure her day was everything she imagined.

Cypress Tree's Plantation was the most beautiful backdrop for this stunning spring wedding designed by Meagan Warren Weddings. When Melissa, a dear friend of mine, asked me to do the florals for Sarah and Dustin it was a no brainer. I love when I am able to share in such big life events with friends, their day was picture perfect and I am so honored to be a part of the team.
