Brittany + Christian: Rose Hill Summer Wedding

Check out this feature from Brittany and Christian's big day, back in July at Rose Hill Plantation!  The thing I loved about this wedding was captured on the video by Honey Dew Films - their sweet dads gave such meaningful toasts at the reception!  It was a joy to witness this family's love!

Wedding Rehearsal Outfit

So the other day I was at work, Anthropologie in North Hills, and I was helping a customer with a return. The customer returned the dress below. She told me she had ordered two of the same dress but in different sizes, so the other size worked better. When I saw the back of this dress I absolutely fell in love with it! I said this would be a perfect dress for a bride to wear for her rehearsal dinner. This simmered jacquard dress is ivory and gold, it has clean cuts and is structured but you also get your feminine touch in the back. The cutouts and the bows on the back give the dress a little feminine twist to the structured dress. Also on the sides of the dress there are pockets. We all love dresses with pockets! Can you now see why I fell in love with this dress when I saw it?

I would pair this dress with a metallic gold pump you can go with a closed toe or an open toe. The closed toe pumps I choose are just my dream shoes, a pair of Christian Louboutin heels. But the open toe pumps are more reasonable and realistic then my dream shoe. You really do not need a lot of fancy jewelry with this dress because it has so much detail on its own. So I picked out some Kate Spade pearls, I love Kate Spade earrings they are simple but bold and super cute! And if you read my last blog you know I love me a pop of color bag and Michael Kors, so why not put them together with this hot pink handbag. I think this pink handbag looks so good with this dress! And there you go, looking fabulous at your wedding rehearsal!

Relax.....No Really - Relax already!

Hello Blog world!

We have had a whirlwind of a weekend over here - 5 events and our first real big one at the Bradford! All went swimmingly and after recuperating from an all-nighter, Dana and I are ready for a little mini break. It is the middle of wedding season so we can only squeeze in an afternoon - not a whole weekend so it's Massage Envy and a coquettes appetizer for us!

I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to the relaxing massage and a bit of down time with my sister - not business partner :)

Leslie + Jason

Y'all - it is the sweetest thing to get to be a part of a friend's wedding as a planner.  Busy, good, and so sweet.  This college suitemate of mine said she'd never get married.  And then she met Jason.  He is the perfect compliment for her!  

The wedding was held at the Hilton Charlotte, outdoor on a pretty (and windy) May day.  Leslie wanted all things pink, girly, and glam for her decor so we made that happen!  Leslie is a designer by nature, so it was so fun to help her put her ideas to action and know that she truly cared about every detail!  Their ceremony was sweet and full of memories honoring his deceased father.  I enjoyed getting to celebrate with them and catch up with some of my Meredith girls!

Happy Friday, y'all!

As many of you plan, dream, and scheme about that perfect day, may you remember what matters.

Brides, what will matter the most to you in 30 years, when you are still holding the hand of that handsome groom of yours, and you think back to your wedding day?

Plan for that.

Some of the most helpful things while planning a wedding may just be:

stealing that kiss 

talking through expectations

affirming what you love about one another

listening to marriage advice from your grandparents

having fun together!

Our team at C and D encourages you plan for what matters.  We strive to help your wedding day be full of memories that you will smile upon on your 10th anniversary, and 30th, and 50th!
