Real Wedding Wednesday (on a Thursday)

Hey guys! After a hiatus from blogging, I'm really excited to share what I've been up to lately. Like a lot of folks, the last few months I've felt really strangely about blogging. Do I have anything useful to say? Do I feel like sharing wedding tips is appropriate in this moment when so many people are facing so many difficult kinds of crises? I really didn't feel that I did. So, I decided to just stay quiet for a bit. The internet is a place where lots of white noise happens every day and I didn't want to contribute to it.

However, weddings are also happening in Tennessee and I feel like any joy that can be shared should be shared. So, today we I'm sharing the beautiful wedding day of Mr. and Mrs. Amber and Carson Whitehead, Jr. This day at Maypop Fields was many months in the making and Amber and Carson preservered despite changing their date and adjusting plans from a May wedding to an August wedding. It even threatened to rain on us, but all the pieces fell into place for their wedding ceremony and the rain came down during their reception for good luck!

This wedding had a vintage, elegant look that paired beautifully with Maypop White Barn and I loved Amber's choices of soft lavender and ivory flowers by Judy's Flowers and Gifts.

Amber and Carson's wedding ceremony was so sweet and personal and their large wedding party and family and friend surrounded them love and support. It really was a beautiful and personal ceremony with handwritten vows and a unity cross ceremony included. You could certy feel the love!

Then, it was party time! The reception was so fun and full of dancing a moments of celebration. It was such a pleasure to share this day with Amber and Carson! I wish them both a lifetime of happiness and continued joy together!
