Cara and Matt’s wedding epitomizes the impact of choosing a spectacular venue – what could possibly match the drama and beauty of dogwood tress in full bloom?! And of course it never hurts to hire a photographer like Marta Locklear, who can preserve those memories in beautiful images like these…

“My favorite part of the day,” says Cara, “was the moment when I was walking down the aisle with my Dad, I looked up and saw everyone that Matt and I love looking right back at me. All of the people who have shaped our lives for so many years had all gathered there on that day to celebrate us and our love for each other.”

“Matt and I focused a lot on the feeling and the content of the wedding ceremony. We wanted everyone there to feel love – for their spouses, their families, and the friends in their life. We hand picked readings, songs, and specific parts of the ceremony that meant something to us. I wanted all of our family members to play a role. Matt and I had our brothers escort our mothers during the ceremony and helped them to light the unity candles. The readings were done by my brother, sister, and Matt’s brother. My sister-in-law sang ‘All of Me’ and ‘Simple Gifts’ during the ceremony.”

“Matt rented a 1960 Rolls Royce to take us around town after the ceremony in order to get some pictures and just have a moment to ourselves. I have always loved classic cars and felt like royalty riding in it!”

“Our fathers used their handiwork to help with our wedding decor,” says Cara. Her father made table number posts, and Matt’s father made the large M & C initials.

Other DIY elements included table assignments painted on window frames, centerpiece doilies crocheted by the bride’s mother, and mason jars “punch glasses” decorated by the bride and her sister. The couple had two signature drinks: an Old Fashioned (Maker’s Mark Whiskey, bitters, orange zest, and a sugar cube) and “The Attention Seeker” (vodka, rosé, lemon juice, honey, rosemary sprigs).

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  The Virginia Center for Architecture is in a building also known as the Branch House. It is a beautiful mansion formerly owned by a prestigious couple in Richmond, turned into a museum in the heart of the Monument Avenue Historic District. We picked the venue because of the historic nature of it, along with the beautiful courtyard in the back lawn. The windows and hardwood floors inside just spoke of long-standing romance.

Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  I grew up in Western Pennsylvania where it was a tradition to have a cookie table for dessert and a take-home treat for your guests. Family members and friends of the bride and groom will get together and make a variety of cookies to bring to the wedding. It is a common occurrence to see guests heading to the cookie table before dinner is even served!

Please tell us about any special details from your wedding.  One of my favorite parts of the decor for the wedding was the family photo table. Matt and I gathered photos of our parents and grandparents from their weddings, put them in frames, and labeled them along with their anniversary dates. We chose the date of our wedding because it was Matt’s parents 38th wedding anniversary.

What was the best advice you received as a bride?  The night before the wedding, I received a note from my sister. Part of it said, “At some point during the wedding and reception, stop and take a minute for yourself. Just look around and take it all in. The music, the laughter, the room, and all of the people that are surrounding you guys on your first day of marriage. Enjoy your guests, but make sure that you and Matt steal little moments away and for each other during the evening.” This advice resonated with me, and I made sure that I did just that. Just stop, look around, and enjoy every minute of it.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Make your wedding day fit your personality. There are so many dresses, vendors, decorations out there to choose from. You can easily get lost in ideas and second guess your choices. Go with the first one that “fits” and that makes you smile. Be happy and confident about your decisions because they were inspired by you. Also, I have to say that the best money that I spent on the wedding day was for my day-of wedding coordinator. She allowed me to relax and just enjoy the day.

Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day?  The guest of honor at our wedding was our brand new niece, Joy. She was born exactly one week before the wedding! She was all dressed up in her satin pink dress and was on the dance floor all night long!

    The bride’s favorite part of the day? “I can truly say that I loved every moment of my wedding; it really was my favorite day! But if I had to be specific, I really enjoyed being surrounded by my family and friends, all of who were genuinely excited to share in our joy. Another favorite little moment was when we were pronounced husband and wife. My husband and I waited to have our first kiss on our wedding day and it was so special for us!”

    Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  When we began the planning process, we wanted a venue that would be the perfect backdrop for our wedding festivities. We chose words like lush, clean, and natural to describe our dream venue and when we found Park Winters, we knew it would be the perfect fit. We believed that investing into a gorgeous venue meant we would have to bring in fewer outside elements to complete the overall look.

    What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  We really liked the idea of a simple and neutral wedding, with an emphasis on lush greenery. We wanted minimal details that were thoughtful and intentional.

    Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  Overall, our wedding was quite traditional, but it was also very genuine and heartfelt.

    Please tell us about any special details from your wedding.  Our love for coffee prompted us to set up a coffee bar complete with custom hand-stamped cups and bags of coffee beans for guests to take home and enjoy. We also foraged for all of the greenery for our wedding. All of the greenery came from the yard of a family member or dear friend.

    What was the best advice you received as a bride?  Don’t let anything ruin your joy. No matter what may go wrong, or maybe if things just don’t go exactly as planned, remove yourself and just enjoy the day.

    What advice do you have for other brides?  Absolutely hire a wedding planner and a stylist. Having someone who knows the ins and outs of the industry and whose style and decision making skills you trust and admire will prove invaluable throughout the planning process.

    Do you have any budget tips for other brides?  Decide ahead of time what elements are important to you. Invest your money on things that will last instead of little details that will likely be forgotten by you and your guests.

    Always a treat to feature a wedding from our friends at A Bryan Photo, and these images really capture the energy of the couple and the day. Not to mention, when the bride is a planner for boutique planning studio, Mariée Ami, you know it’s going to be a gorgeous, glamorous celebration!

    Louise wore a stunning gown by Lela Rose, accented with a chapel length veil and phalaenopsis orchids in her hair. Bridesmaids wore a mix of gray and navy chiffon gowns by Amsale.

    The bride shares about the decision to get married at Mobile’s Christ Church Cathedral: “There was no question as to where we were getting married. I love my hometown and my parents would not have had it any other way. Billy and I were married in my childhood church were I was baptized and confirmed.”

    As a planner, Louise had a very clear vision for the design of the wedding: “We always dreamed of being married in a large tent over looking the water. While an outdoor wedding in August was out of the question, a tent was still something I wanted, so we created that feel inside. I new I wanted navy as the basis of the wedding. I also love a mix of garden-like design and straight line modern pieces. I love the crispness of true white and the preppy touch of boxwoods and ribbon.”

    “Our friends and family love good food, but they also love to talk and drink. We had three huge square tables in the middle of the reception that allowed for guests to pick and eat directly from the tables. Oyster, shrimp, tuna, hot sausage with melted cheese, a variety of salads and antipasti presentations, and we couldn’t end the night without the groom’s favorite thing: mini fried chicken pieces on Sister Schubert rolls and beignets covered in powdered sugar!”

    Signature drinks were an Arnold Palmer for the groom and vodka milkshakes for the bride.

    Doesn’t this photo look like it could have come from the 1950s?! I love it! The classic wedding cake was decorated with a lattice pattern and sugar calla lilies. Says Louise, “Both the wedding cake and groom’s cake were served on large silver trays that have been in my family for years. The tablecloths for the cakes were also meaningful family heirlooms. I was also given a toasting cup from my grandmother that both she and my mother used at their wedding receptions.”

    Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  We chose to get married in August for a few reasons. We didn’t want a long engagement, a wedding during football season was out of the question, and, as a wedding planner, it was the only open weekend I had. I was worried about the heat in Mobile in August, so we choose an indoor venue rather than the outdoor bay wedding I had always dreamed of. Fort Whiting was the largest indoor venue we could find and I knew we could accomplish exactly what we wanted in the big open space.

    Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  Billy and I decided not to see each other before the ceremony and wait for that moment of walking down the aisle to see each other.

    Please tell us about any special details from your wedding.  When it came to the details my mind was going 100 miles a minute. My favorite detail of the wedding was actually all the little gifts and favors we had. Hypercolor cups and linen cocktail napkins were two of my favorite reception details. The hotel gifts really came together well. I wanted to incorporate my dog into the details so we had a local artist do a sketch. We used this sketch on canvas bags for the hotel guests, frisbees that could be taken home by other fellow dog lovers, and koozies. The monogramed playing cards were a favorite find in the hotel bags. // I also loved the paintings that hung above the bars. They were painted by one of my best friends and bridesmaids, Liz Legg (Liz Legg Designs), and are now hanging in my home. I also gave my bridesmaids earrings from Liz’s jewelry collection that they wore on the wedding day! She is so talented! [Check out these great details in the gallery!]

    What was the best advice you received as a bride?  At the end of the day the most important thing is you will be married…. Don’t sweat the small things and enjoy every moment!

    What advice do you have for other brides?  Hire a wedding planner and do things differently from what you see all the time. Being a wedding planner by day, I did not do one thing from Wednesday on. With my team doing what they do every weekend, it was so nice to be the bride and let someone else handle the details!

    This backyard wedding from photographer Christine Sargologos really captures the feel of springtime in Texas – the use of pale blues and purples against a grassy green backdrop feels just like a field of wildflowers! And Christine’s photos of the day are so lovely, they make me wish I was there!

    Says the bride, “My husband and I spent a lot of time discussing our ceremony. When initially talking with our planner, we discussed that we wanted the reception to be fun, beautiful, and memorable, as that is what guests will remember, but also that the day is really about our commitment to each other. We chose pieces of the ceremony that joined both of our religious upbringings as well as pieces that represented who we are as a couple.”

    The groom and groomsmen wore khaki suits from Jos. A. Bank and heather blue-gray bow ties from J.Crew.

    Says Landin, “I ordered my wedding dress online without even seeing or trying it on in person. I also didn’t wear a veil – I think this goes to doing what fits with who you are. When I walked down the aisle I felt authentically me; I don’t know if I could say that if I was in a ball gown, long train, and veil. Those can all be beautiful, they’re just not me.”

    Signature drinks were the “Southern Gentleman” (bourbon, ginger, orange bitters, orange twist) and the “Better Half” (cucumber, jalapeño, simple syrup, lime, tequila, triple sec).

    Landin on the wedding venue: “Our reception was in my parents’ backyard – we wanted a venue that was meaningful and comfortable, but also accommodated about 200 guests. Additionally, we wanted to make it unique to us. Through our venue search, nothing seemed to fit. After a few conversations and a little bit of arm-twisting, my dad was on board and worked tirelessly for six months grooming the yard.”

    “For dinner we served Texas brisket and Carolina pulled pork to represent our two families,” says Linden. “I am not a huge fan of icing, so our cake was a naked wedding cake; we also served pies.”

    What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  Pinterest is such a great resource for inspiration, once you know what to search for. I’ve always been the girl that dressed a little more casual, valued comfort over show, but still wanted a little bit of spice. I have fond memories of dove and deer hunting with my dad, working in Papaw’s garden, attending musicals with Nannie, and debutante and Girl Scouting with my mom. I wanted both perspectives to show.

    What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  I’ve had many people ask this, and I think I have given a different answer each time… mainly to give credit to so many amazing memories. At the risk of sounding cliche, the entire day really was surreal. If I had to pick one moment (with permission to change my mind next time I’m asked) I would say the 10 minutes leading up to the ceremony. I had been worried that I would be nervous, but I felt so peaceful. It really set the stage for the rest of the evening. Looking back, I’d have to give a lot of credit to Melanie (our planner). I didn’t have to answer one logistical question all day, my mom was calm and wasn’t worrying about any details. I also had my dog in the wedding – she was right by my side until we all started walking down the aisle. Having her around kept those moments real.

    Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  Yes, but I also left some out, some to my mom’s chagrin. Traditions I included were the something old, new, borrowed, and blue. I wore a necklace that comprised a collage of a few memorable pieces: my mom’s cross, cameo and gold coin, and Papaw’s wedding ring. So all of those were borrowed. I also carried a handkerchief given to me by my Oma – it was old and blue. My dress and shoes were new, but not too traditional. We also had first dances, cutting the cake, and a fairly traditional ceremony.

    Please tell us about any special details from your wedding.  We wanted Kinley, our six year old Vizsla, to be a part of the wedding. She was the “Dog of Honor” and was up at the altar for the entire ceremony. Our first dance was a song I will always connect with my dad’s parents, Oma and Opa… a good ol’ Randy Travis favorite.

    What was the best advice you received as a bride?  Understand that it will go by so fast. Try to take in as much as you can in the moment, but make sure you have a really good photographer to capture moments you will miss, and to help relive the day.

    Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day?  It was authentic. I’m sure brides will look at our wedding and find some pieces that are awesome and some that don’t fit their style; I know I did this when looking for inspiration. I look back at our amazing photos or talk about memories with my husband, and I am so pleased that everything was simply “us.”
