To say that I'm excited to share this wedding would be a huge understatement! I have been looking forward to this wedding since way back in October when I met with Cortney. It was my first wedding consultation with a Lexington bride. She shared a little with me about her relationship with James … her plan for styling their wedding … and I knew from the very beginning that we had so much in common. It was a match! I love working with couples just like Cortney and James. My favorite thing about their wedding was that it was truly a reflection of their love for each other. Every little detail was a thoughtful nod to what makes their relationship unique.
There are so many beautiful details and moments that I want to share so I am actually going to break the blog post up into two parts. This is part one! And it will include my favorite images from the first half of the day. As well as a few tid-bits from a Q&A with Cortney … because it's better to hear the details straight from the bride!
Super cute shoes from Seychelles.
How did you & James meet? We met at a law school friend’s dinner party.
Cortney wore very simple but very special pearl earrings that were family heirlooms. Her necklace is from Dillards.
Was there a moment when you knew you were in love? I knew I was in love when he took care of me when I had the swine flu. He made sure I had soup, movies, and spot on his couch. He was not the least bit worried about contracting it!
What was your favorite thing about planning your wedding? I loved meeting all the people who would be intimately involved in making the day so special.
