Hoopingarner-Altar-Brocade-Designs_BlogAll of our couples are amazing and wonderful, but there are some that just get into your heart and stay there— and bride Megan had my heart from day one. She’s just incredible, she’s the sweetest gal you’ll meet and she had such a beautiful vision for her wedding day that I was unspeakably excited to work with her. The colors: soft blush, peaches, and pinks with lots of gardeny aspects. The venue: Belle Meade Plantation. All beautifully captured by Kristyn Hogan.


See what I mean– so beautiful, so in love— check out that smile and check out the devotion from husband Brett— LOVE!

Meg’s bouquet: a real confection of garden roses, peonies, dahlia, roses and spray roses. I still dream about it’s sherbert-y loveliness. (yes, I do dream of bouquets I miss– sometimes they’re hard to give to our brides because I fall so in love with them!)


Brett’s buttonhole: ranunculus with accents of lisianthus bud, spray rose bud, and greenery

Now. you couldn’t tell it from this pic but it was a MILLION degrees outside. Like the hottest day ever, y’all. And these two– smiling, happy, overjoyed and not a drop of sweat!
