We are finally jumping back on the blogging train! And this is a great wedding to start back with in our opinion! From the first time we met Lori at The Red Cat (also the first time we had ever been there!), we knew immediately that this girl had class and style. Our thoughts were confirmed when we met with Lori and her mom for her bridal session. I don't think we've ever gushed so much over a bridal gown. We could not pick our jaws up off the ground (by the way, those photos HERE!)
On the big day, Lori effortlessly blended the soft creams and peaches she had envisioned with the dark textures of B&A. We absolutely love that every time we shoot at B&A Warehouse, it is never the same. Our brides make each wedding so uniquely different. Lori dressed up her ceremony with a beautiful wooden cross that contrasted the cream drapery behind. All of the colors she chose were soft and romantic. With the skylight right above Lori and Brian as they said their vows, there was a dreamy feel to the whole moment. Not to mention, Lori was ALL smiles and giggles. Watching her and Brian walk back down the aisle with the happiest smiles on their faces absolutely makes our jobs worth it every single time!
Lori hails from Mississippi where she attended Mississippi State. Brian is much more on our level as he went to Alabama (Ahem, Roll Tide.) Although we are not State fans, it's always fun to watch the rallied spirit of alumni when they are all together (and also drinking). Most of Lori's bridal party took over the stage at one point as they chanted something concerning the Bulldogs, and we have no idea what it meant, but they were having a blast obviously so we loved it! The entire reception was a crazy fun party, which Bonus Round tends to always provide a lively show. They never let us down! It was even personally special to us as it was Brittany's husband's birthday, and seeing as he and Brian are friends, we made him attend the wedding and save a dance for Brittany. :) One more great party in the books for Sweet Julep, and one more fabulous marriage bringing us new friends as well. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Higdon!
