Our Big Day begins...

At long last, my wedding photos have arrived! James and I poured over every one, and we still can't get enough. Tina and Chad did an amazing job documenting every moment in such a beautiful, unique way, and we are so grateful to have these pictures to help us remember our special day for many years to come.

The day began with my bridal brunch at Lumpkin Cafe, (owned by James's sweet stepsister, Lisa), then a hair appointment for all of the ladies in the wedding party at Dree & Co, where all my bridesmaids incorporated a little peacock clip in their hair that I made with feathers and a mother of pearl bead. After that, it was off to the church to get married.

At the church, I discovered my florist, Nina Goodrum of Bella Blooms, left all of the bouquets in Mason jars in the bridal suite. They were gorgeous; everything I hoped they would be and more. She incorporated a vintage handkerchief onto mine left to me by my late grandmother, which ended up looking perfect with the peonies in my bouquet. She also attached two photo charms I made that held tiny pictures of my late grandmother and grandfather on my Dad's side of the family, (on the left), and my grandfather and his mother, my great-grandmother, (who I knew until she passed at age 94), on my Mom's side of the family. I wore my great-grandmother's art deco necklace and a white feather headpiece to accessorize my gown.

The groomsmen received engraved harmonicas from James; they ended up being a really great gift. James and I didn't see each other before the wedding, so we took pictures with our groomsmen and bridesmaids separately. My friends and I took various pictures around the church; some of my favorites include my little flower girl and niece, Kayleigh. Her pomander ball had just come apart minutes before, and needless to say, she was not a happy camper! These are some of my favorite pictures - they are just too funny. She brightened up later when we fixed the flowers, and was her cheerful, sweet self for the rest of the evening.

Next up, pictures of our wedding ceremony!
