I’m a sucker for a lace gown and Katie looks timeless and elegant in hers from Modern Trousseau. Paired with her flawless and natural makeup by Pamela Lesch, she could not be more stunning. Of course, I can’t forget to mention Nathan and his handsome groomsmen. The guys looked like perfect gentlemen in their pale tuxes and brown leather shoes. Joey and Jessica of Veil and Bow did an amazing job capturing Katie + Nathan’s wedding. I love looking at the photo of the happy couple walking back up the aisle after their vows–it looks like one their kids might frame and display at their own weddings. I confess, I want to be friends with Katie + Nathan. I love how they incorporated old items like vintage keys, tins, and picture frames into their garden-like reception to give their wedding a classic Southern ambiance without being themed. The newlyweds wanted their wedding day to be about spending time with family, and the backyard reception gave them the perfect space to do so. Guests chowed down on good ole Southern food, complete with pie bar courtesy of Wild Flour Pastry, and ended the meal with a slice of Katie + Nathan’s cute and simple lemon cake from The Cake Stand– love those little bird toppers! My favorite part of reading about this wedding was hearing how the newlyweds stole a few minutes away from the party to reflect on how far they’ve come.
The overall feeling caused by wedding planning: The engines runnin’ but nobody’s drivin
