If Sadie and Clayton look familiar to you, it very well could be because they are celebrities! Why are they celebrities, you ask?
Sadie and Clayton’s wedding has been featured on STYLE ME PRETTY!!!
John and I shot this wedding this past May, and have been itching to finally blog it. The time has come. Here’s a little flashback to their engagement session, aren’t they just adorable?!?
We met with Sadie early in 2013 about her 2014 wedding. The months rolled past, and it felt like it would never get here. We were so excited when May finally got here. Although the forecast called for rain, Sadie and Clayton remained hopeful. Right around lunch time, dark clouds rolled in and the bottom fell out. My anxious heart (along with everyone else’s) pounded. It only stuck around for twenty/thirty minutes, and we had blue skies and sunshine for the entirety of Sadie and Clayton’s day. It was SUCH a blessing. God is good.
Now, do I have the EPITOME of a Southern Wedding for you to drool over. BE.STILL.MY.HEART.
How is this for southern? We’re talking seersucker suits paired with Patina striped ties from the Tie Bar (with custom engraved tie clips), an Antebellum Historic Inn (Dunleith Historic Inn) that dates back to the 1790′s in one of the most charming cities I’ve ever laid these blue eyes on (Natchez, Mississippi), and stunning spanish moss that draped over 100+ year old trees. Dunleith Historic Inn has a Greek revival design and includes 26 Tuscan columns built of brick and stucco. (Which literally just translates to perfection.) HAVE I MENTIONED THERE WAS AN ADORABLE GREENHOUSE? (Oh trust me, there’s more than one or two images of the greenhouse!) It was literally the most charismatic venue I have ever seen. Giant magnolia trees lined the driveway, and provided the most prefect back drop for bride and groom portraits. Sadie and Clayton spent hours dancing and snuggling under these monumental giants. The bridal party wore the preppiest attire so well. It all so perfectly fit with the venue. The bridesmaids wore a lush Kelly Green Love Lane dress that popped against their bouquets filled with cotton, succulents, and garden roses. The flower girls wore white smocks with green embroidered monograms and white flower crowns. White fruitwood folding chairs gleamed in the sun as the aisle chairs were lined with cotton and magnolia leafs. It was a charming southern affair. In fact, I don’t think it gets anymore southern than this.
Both Sadie and Clayton told us that they 100% trusted our opinion and preferences on the bride and groom portraits. Sadie blocked off plenty of time during her day to be able to walk around the gorgeous venue. She didn’t want to be rushed at all, and I can honestly say, she has SO many pictures to show for her good planning. Sadie and Clayton’s families were absolutely amazing, so supportive and helpful. They raised incredible children, and John and I felt so honored to be there spending time with them all.
Sadie and Clayton, you two are beyond wonderful. We look back at your wedding, and still shake our heads with amazement! Thank you for trusting us to document such special memories. We’ll forever be thankful!
ENOUGH ALREADY, ENJOY THE IMAGES!
