Real Wedding: McRae and Thomas

McRae and Thomas came to me with help for the coordination of their Amelia Island Wedding. When McRae told me over the phone that the bridesmaids' dresses were hot pink, I knew we would be a great match to work together!

McRae and her family are from Greenville, South Carolina, so they were planning a Southern affair in the stunning Walker's Landing at the Amelia Island Plantation.

McRae, her mother, and I met up at the venue in January to brainstorm some decor ideas and other details. We came up with the idea of placing mason jars all around the expansive outdoor deck area, as well as placing bright fun pillows along the outdoor seating areas.

More fun southern touches followed -- the groom and groomsmen were decked out in awesome seersucker suits, and the groom's father was his best man.

McRae looked amazing in her beautiful Judd Waddell gown.

The ceremony was held in one of the area's historic churches, First Presbyterian of Fernandina Beach. After the sweet ceremony, guests made their way to Walker's Landing where they enjoyed southern food stations like a mac n' cheese bar created by Michelle of My Personal Chef.

The reception room was decorated with Paper Lanterns above the dance floor, lighted ficus trees all around the room, and fresh floral designs by Island Flowers.

Guests enjoyed the laid back music of Felix Chang and band during the cocktail hour and dinner, and then after dinner, the party got started with the amazingly diverse talents of the Atlanta Party Band.

Even though the day started out gray and rainy, the happiness of the couple couldn't be diminished.

Photographers Kara and Jeremy Pennington did such a wonderful job capturing the details and emotions of the day, and I am so happy to share these photos from their blog. Enjoy!
