I’ve read a lot of wedding interviews in my time at SW, but can say, without a doubt, that none have been sweeter than Taylor’s account of how he met and eventually won over his lovely bride. (If you don’t usually, you’ll definitely want to read this couple’s sweet story!) After a whirlwind two month engagement, Laurie Anne + Taylor exchanged vows at the Aldridge Gardens, with Stephen Devries on hand to document their intimate service. The bride, in a Bella Couture gown, pulled out all the stops when it came to planning to outfitting her wedding party: pearl gray mix-and-match frocks from J. Crew with coordinating wraps (my favorite), cowboy boots and crisp gray suits for the gents. Laurie Anne’s veil was a Charlsie and Linda Designs creation, and Carol Riley of Lillie’s styled arrangements of lush blue hydrangeas. This wedding is full of confection bliss! Check out the mound of Dunkin’ Donuts that stood as the groom’s cake at their reception. (The chocolate-sprinkled pastries were what the couple had for breakfast the first weekend they spent together.) Even sweeter was the wedding cake, a stack of Laurie Anne’s favorite white cookies from Savages Bakery. Lanterns and string lights set the stage for the outdoor reception where the newlyweds celebrated before making their getaway.
A great catch for a husband: He’s bigger than life and twice as handsome!
