    Relaxed Southern Wedding | J. Woodberry Photography & The Sonnet House

    I love weddings of all kinds, but when you see a couple have a wedding that is so in love, so relaxed, and so enjoying their day – well, that makes it the best kind of wedding. Add the Southern charm of today’s wedding, and you’ve got me hooked. I’m also pretty obsessed with the bride’s long mermaid waves.

    The inspiration for our wedding day stemmed from our personalities.  All we wanted was day of love, laughter, and simplicity. We wanted all of our guests to be comfortable and have the time of their lives.

    My favorite moment of the day was walking down the aisle with my husband as the new Mrs. Wade to one of our favorite songs, Better Together by Jack Johnson.

    My advice for planning couples would be to plan the day of your dreams, but know that not everything will go the way it was planned. If you know that ahead of time, then the little mishaps will be mishaps and nothing more. It is your day, so rock it! 
My experience: Right before our entrance and first dance, my husband stepped on my gown and ripped my bustle out. After a couple of tears and a quick fix with safety pins, my gown was fixed, we had our first dance, and none of our guests really knew. It is something we laugh about now even though my husband is still mortified.

    What made your wedding YOU?

    Everything. I did not have a traditional wedding because traditional was not us. Everything that we did at the wedding was because we wanted to and not because we had to. I hope that all future brides and grooms remember that it’s your day and everyone is there for YOUR celebration.

    Truer words were never said – your wedding should be about what you want and who you are. Side note, the bride found her dream gown (in her size!) at a consignment shop for less than $800! Lesson to all you brides out there on a budget – you can have a fabulous gown. You just need to look around (remember my story of finding my dream gown?). Congrats to Jasmine & Jonathan!

    •  Sleepless nights, sibling fights, tantrums and meltdowns and tears. But these are the days, going by in a haze, that I'll miss when I'm late in my years. #peptalkformyself #battlefieldmotherhood #sendacaffieneIVdrip #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin  This week has been straight up ROUGH. Charlie has been home sick from camp, Quincy is sleeping his worst ever, Calvin had a toddler meltdown at the museum today the likes of which I have never seen, it is 9 million degrees, and I have so much work piling up I feel like I'm being swallowed up in quicksand. But today at the park Quincy took a mini nap in the stroller, the big boys played on their own without fighting or needing me to intervene for 10 whole minutes while I sat alone on a blanket. It was glorious. #battlefieldmotherhood #summer
       He's got me wrapped around one of those blurry little fingers and he knows it. It's the dimp that slays me.  #quincysweekbyweek #26weeks  Life with these boys is an adventure of mammoth proportions  (see what I did there #ivegotpuns) #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin
