Some wedding celebrations feel like magic, and Sarah and Michael's wedding was no exception. Using a color palette of purples, pinks, and creamy neutrals, hundreds and hundreds of florals ensured every part of this celebration was adorned in texture, romance, and softness. From the ceremony backdrop of flowers designed along the side of a beautiful Northern Catalpa tree, to the barn packed full of candlelight, fresh blooms, and fancy tablescapes, this wedding had it all. Yet, it all comes back to the people. People help make magic happen, and there were people at Sarah and Michael's special day: the kind bridal party that radiated joy and personality. Sarah’s uncle, who proudly served as their officiate and with such passion and purpose. Sarah’s beyond sweet Mother, with whom we honored with the Southern tradition of letting the mother of the bride rise first during the processional to soak up the experience as her husband and daughter make their way down the aisle. The team of professionals behind the scenes who worked tirelessly in 93 degrees all day and night to ensure everything went off without a hitch (which it did). And, of course, Sarah and Michael themselves. After all, that’s where this story first started.
