 It’s definitely true when they say your wedding day is a blur, and I’m so thankful for these images captured by Mike Moon! My Aunt did a beautiful job on the florals, and I’m spoiled with love from my family and friends who helped get all the detailed together while I got to enjoy the day with my Mom and bridesmaids. Thank you to everyone who celebrated our day, especially my Mom and Dad who did everything they could to make our day a fairytale.  I plan to share a little more of the detailed shots later, but I wanted to link everything I can here so it’s all in one place!

We picked Little River Farms for our venue because driving though Milton always gives me such peace. My mother grew up just two streets over and had her wedding reception at her childhood home, so it felt like the perfect place for us. Not to mention, I was in love with all the natural light throughout the house and the southern touches without screaming country. I knew I wanted a southern theme, but I didn’t want to scare Tim’s Pennsylvania family away on their first night as family 😉

A funny story from the morning of the wedding… I managed to lock my keys in my car with my dress in the trunk! I got to my parent’s house with Chick-fil-a biscuits (#shedforthewed) and I guess I was so excited to bite into one that I left the keys inside! I had to laugh it off, and luckily there was plenty of time to go back to our townhouse and get my spare set.

    How beautiful!! I'm getting married this September, and have completely fallen in love with the getting ready robe you wore so fabulously here and need it for my wedding morning. Question though – due to the sheer back, were you able to wear undergarments or a slip underneath? I don't want to take away from the beauty of the robe, but also don't want any mistaken flashing to occur! I hope you don't mind my asking 🙂

    • I wore sticky boobs and ivory hanky pankies, but nude would probably be better 🙂 You could also try a nude slip underneath if it matches your skin color well. I purchased the matching lingerie but it didn't work underneath. Congratulations by the way!

      Good idea! However I'm nearly as pale as you and typically have to really search for the correct nude color, lol #palegirlproblems

      Thanks so much, this is very helpful info!
