It’s always something even more special when you get to watch your college roommate say ‘yes’ to the man that she’s been patiently waiting for. This summer Trey & Alexis finally said ‘I do’ and danced the night away.

Graysen is so amazing and did such a great job of capturing their love for each other. I hope this video makes you swoon as much as I did!

I love rich Southern weddings that are full of love and lots of fun. As I was scrolling through the Southern Weddings blog yesterday, I stumbled upon Blakey & Curtis’ video and immediately fell in love.

Whew! This past month has gone by so fast, I feel like we JUST had the 4th of July. Well, with busyness comes the lack of drive, but after an amazing weekend with my girls, I am ready to rock.

For those that know me, you know how much I LOVE Southern Weddings Magazine! I read their blog every day along with all of the girls on Instagram and would love to – one day- take a sneak peek into their everyday lives.

This weeks video is so exciting! After many years of following SW, you tend to feel like you’ve stepped into their shoes and that’s just how I felt after watching Meredith & Beau’s Video. The Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Southern Weddings, Lara Casey, is very near and dear to Meredith after years of Meredith watching her sweet girl- Gracie, you can’t help but feel like a part of the family!

OK, I’ll stop talking- Here’s Meredith and Beau!

There are very few times where a rainy day can turn into the perfect day & this was one of them. Despite the storm that was supposed to blow through Brynn and Mark’s Backyard wedding, they were surrounded by their close friends and family and just in time, the rain cleared and it brought with it a cool breeze and a sense of peace.

I am so excited to share with you, these gorgeous photos by Elisabeth Carol Photography.

Meet Mr & Mrs Mark Ahlenius:

A special thank you to all the vendors that made this possible!

It is always such a privilege to be able to work weddings at your home church. When I came on to the team at Pantego Bible Church, I met with the logistics coordinator who handles all outside events. It was great getting to talk wedding talk with him and the future for the church as far as weddings go. I believe this church is a great backdrop for anyone wanting a traditional church wedding, inside or outside.

Stevie and Landon’s wedding was nothing less than the best. They are a great couple and that is why I am so excited to share their video with you today!

There are not enough good words to describe these two. They are one of my favorite couples and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who said “finally” when they decided to date.

Shelby and Chad

Shelby + Chad are one of those couples that were friends for forever. The three of us started out working in the Undergraduate Admissions office at DBU and when they posted their first picture as a couple on Instagram, I’m pretty sure the entire campus was excited.

Yep! There it is!

So, as I was going through videos to post today, I wanted something that would be near and dear to my heart. A lot of you know that I have a passion for helping grow small businesses, just like me, and I thought this would be a great  opportunity to introduce you guys to someone very talented.

Please say hi to :

Little Gray Films

Graysen Reed is a student at DBU! Her sister and I actually worked together with Chad and Shelby in Undergrad Admissions. I’ve been following her work for a while and just love how much she has grown and shown us love stories through video. So, today you are not only getting one, but TWO videos!!

Enjoy!

There’s always something special about your first wedding of the year and this one did not disappoint. From the rock star wedding party all the way to one of my favorite couples of all time, this was a wedding I will never forget.

A huge HUGE shout out to the girl that did (what I thought was) the impossible…by not only being the maid of honor, but the photographer. Alison Harp Photography killed it. She brought in a dream team of shooters and the day was flawless.

Natalie & Taylor are the furthest thing from boring and they definitely brought all their non-boring friends to celebrate with them and I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding party.

So, without further adieu…

Mr. & Mrs. Taylor Zambreski

Favorite Part of Wedding Planning: Ummmmm. Oh man. Oh man. I feel pressured. Haha. I was so lucky to have so many of my friends help with so much. My bridesmaids were the greatest in the entire world, so anything we did together wound up being a blast, from DIY décor crafting, to showers, bachelorette parties, those were my favorite moments J And I enjoyed anything that Taylor and I got to do together. Wedding planning felt like such a team effort, and I loved that!

 Favorite Part of the Day: This is probably the wrong answer, but I loved the getting ready time. It was so incredibly laid back and so so happy. I didn’t have to lift a finger all day, and just go to sit around with my favorite people in the world and just enjoy the beauty of the day with a glass of champagne in my hand. And also the part where I said I do. That was fun too J

 Advice for Future Brides: HIRE BRITNI. Seriously, I’m not kidding. I look back on how perfect the day was, and how beautifully everything went. NONE of that would have been possible if we hadn’t had such an incredible “Day-Of” team. Every single one of my bridesmaids commented on how they’ve never been a part of a wedding that has gone so smoothly, and they loved being able to just relax and enjoy the day with me! Having that day to just fully relish in the day with all my loved ones meant the world to me!

Here we are again and I have been waiting weeks to show you guys this video. Most of you know my friend Jordan and if you do, you know that I like to talk about his work A LOT. But it’s just because his work it so good!

Since we finally got to work together on a wedding last week, I figured I could feature some of his work and what better way to do that than to show you my favorite video!?

These two love birds in this video are some of the most God fearing people I know. Jacqueline and I spent about a year working at DBU together and I cannot say enough good things about her! She is genuin

e, sweet and has the biggest heart for others and for the Lord. When Jacqueline and Josh started dating, I could tell that she was head over heels for him. He is such a passionate person and would do anything for Jacqueline.

I love the letters that they wrote to each other. They are filled with a love of one another and of Christ.

Everyone, please meet Jacqueline and Josh Elliff
