Wedding Theme

“Southern sensibility meets Windy City charm. Every centerpiece design was inspired by our hometowns. The tables were labeled for our favorite places. Our menu consisted of Southern food in the cocktail hour and Chicago-style pizza and popcorn for the midnight snack

Wedding Style 

“I wore a fitted mermaid gown with a beaded bodice and train. My favorite accessory was my Jenny Packham pearl and crystal headpiece.”

Incorporation of Culture

“We incorporated a water ceremony into our wedding. We traveled to Chicago (his hometown) to collect water from Lake Michigan and to Memphis (my hometown) to collect water from the Mississippi River. We combined the water into one vase during the ceremony, then poured it into Lake Lanier together.”
