Warm, summer weddings are simply my thing. The heat and sunshine of the day just feels like love to me and Kate and Brennan had one of those yummy summer days when you know the kiddies are running to the nearest pool with inflatables in hand. Kate’s parents have a magnificent home for such a day like this with land for miles and a picturesque pond and inviting large porch. It was a perfect place for the girls to gather to get ready and take photos before heading to their lovely venue. 

The Blair Center was the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor. Our ceremony was in their beautifully lined tent with a reception that overlooked the beautiful golf course. Every time I visited this tiny town, I felt myself making excuses to hang around just a bit longer. It was like a town out of a story book. 

For our decor, Kate wanted to incorporate some rustic elements in to the wedding to contrast the country club feel of the venue. We added farm tables, rustic wood boxes for the muted floral with that just picked look. Our simply elegant cake rested on a custom wood pedestal as well. Kate’s AMAZING blush dress was the perfect compliment to every detail. 

Most of all, family first was the theme of the day. These families evoked the real meaning of marriage. It was such an honor to be a part of their fun planning and the beautiful day that resulted from it!
