    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!

       One more from today's laid back Venice wedding -- major  for this bouquet, full of the bride's favorite flower + color. Along with the rest of the florals, food, and details, not to mention the sweet couple, it will put a big smile on your face. And have you craving Mexican food (or maybe that's just this pregnant lady ). Major  to @gatherevents @inessanicholsdesign @mollycophoto @whoanellycaters & all of the other vendors (tagged). Head to the blog to see it all. #linkinprofile #ohlovelyday
       Calvin's first B&N visit. He did about 30 laps around the train table, held his own with a 20 month old (you could tell who has a big bro at home), and only put the trains in his mouth twice. Big success  // however, they desperately need a new train table at @barnesandnoble at @thegrovela - this one has seen better years (and I know, because I've seen it for at least 4). But it was perfect for walking laps around
