Hello, lovelies! Autumn is officially here and while we’re still waiting on that first crisp chill in the air down here in Lower Alabama, I am loving the sight of mums on front porches, mountains of pumpkins at the farm stands, and of course, the breathtaking photos I’ve been browsing online of harvest-themed weddings and fall fetes.
I find this season to be full of inspiration, and over the past few weeks we at Wed With Style have harbored all of that creative energy into our new website. Today, I am proud to introduce you to our gorgeous new site and I hope that you will fall in love, just as I have. Please take a look and be sure to browse the galleries, including the items available for rental.
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported Wed With Style and helped carry us into this exciting new chapter. Take a look, and happy planning!
Hello, beautiful girls. You know down here in Lower Alabama we love to merge a little rustic with a little romance and that’s exactly what we accomplished for Valerie and Kevin this summer.
Oak Hollow Farm provided the perfect backdrop for the shabby chic fete and I have honestly never seen the venue look lovelier. We traded the barn’s standard picnic tables and benches for gold Chiavari chairs, and draped table rounds in navy linens with white cutout overlays. Gold chargers and gold trimmed glass plates were accentuated with a personal note from the bride and groom as a special touch.
Valerie was a dream to work with and relaxed to let her mother take the lead on several details – including the copious amounts of flowers that added a powerful punch to the summer setting.

Well, lovelies, good things come to those who wait and that was exactly the case for Jordan and Andin, who spent more than 13 months planning their summer soiree. Jordan was a dream bride in every way and even looked the part from start to finish – I called her my Barbie bride! – a beautiful person on the inside and out.
This pair had several ideas for incorporating unique personal elements into the big day. Both graduates of Mississippi State University, adding a little cowbell to the mix was an absolute must for the bride and groom – in fact, each guest got to take one home as a keepsake! Their personal cowbells from college were also on display at the reception. An avid outdoorsman, Andin insisted on a camo Polaris golf cart as their “getaway car” – and, what can I say, it was an exit to remember!
Nothing says southern and summer like seersucker and pearls, and that’s exactly what Andin and his groomsmen wore (see their khaki and white striped suits below) while Jordan gifted her bridesmaids with Kate Spade gold and pearl earrings.
