real wedding : annie + mat


Just over a month ago, two sweet friends, Mat and Annie, were married at the same location as Tec and I were, almost two years to the date! (Mat was the kind gentleman that filmed our Super8 wedding video, too!) The celebration was joyous and lovely and sweltering hot. Three cheers for hot-hot-hot June in the South!

Mat and Annie were sweet enough to let me play with the flowers for the decor, the boutonnieres and the bouquets. (All flowers were purchased from Import Flowers here in Nashville.) Annie also wore one of my veils, and its been a while since I've seen Miss Maude look as lovely as it does on this beautiful bride.

Mosey on over to Once Wed to see LOTS more from this wedding; it's being featured on the site today. Blessings, Mat and Annie! Love!

Our journey has begun!... secretly though =)

If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and decided I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post now up. I’d love for you to stop by.

Exciting things going on around here!

Do you know if the venue is available for weddings?

chelsea {oh, my deer!} said...

Hi! Actually, the venue is a private residence. But if you're getting married in or around Nashville, there are other great locations that are similar. Good luck!

This is totally crazy, but a dear friend of mine knows your sister...he showed me the wedding video of your wedding and I just fell in love with the spirit of the day and of your love! The joy of the event was BEAMING from the video!! I am now engaged and would love to find out how to create a similar video for our retro-off-beat-outdoor party. If you wouldn't mind passing on the kind of camera used, it would be a HUGE help! Thank you!
