You have not met the sweetest, most down-to-earth southern bride until you have met Sherry! Sherry and Dave’s big day on December 4th was a complete reflection for each other. Since Margaret and her hubby left that day to go to Barcelona (I know, right?), I enlisted the help of my amazing sister, Crystal to help me. Seriously I think she missed her calling in event planning!!
Their ceremony was at Scarritt Bennett’s Wightman Chapel and that in itself is BEAUTIFUL. The chapel was decorated with two large Christmas trees and gorgeous flower arrangement done by Caprice at Enchanted Florist. They had an organist and probably the most amazing soloist out there. Lemmie is a family friend of Sherry’s and let me just say, sitting in that amazing chapel as he sang “You Lift Me Up”, literally brought tears to my eyes. Probably one of the greatest moments of my “wedding” experience.
The reception was held just around the corner at the University Club. Details was in charge of coordinating & decorating. For centerpieces, the bride wanted to incorporate Christmas decorations, so we used red and silver glitter balls, fresh flowers, & votive candles. Music and Photography provided by the amazing duo McCoy Made. And my favorite, the cake was provided by Cakes by Rebecca There were special personal touches like the favors of homemade caramels made by one of the bride’s friends from her hometown. When the bride and groom entered the reception guests rang their jingle bells to welcome the newlyweds. Instead of a guestbook, the guests signed ornament balls and hung on a tree. The couple took the tree home and used it for their first Christmas as a married couple! Perfect or what?
One special moment about this wedding was when the groom SURPRISED the bride with a special musical guest, Doug Stone, to sing their favorite song so they could have their first dance. My sister and I were both so star-struck! What a perfect way to start your new life together.
Gotta run and get ready for our spring weddings! -Kelly
