{Real Wedding}: Katy + Cooper

by Emily Grace
Katy and Cooper’s spring wedding was full of so many fabulous and handmade details. To put it most simply, it was a relaxing picnic that they had the chance to enjoy with about 200 of their closest friends and family. Their wedding was an eclectic mix of borrowed items, custom made details, help from the most amazing friends and family, and lots of purchases on Etsy. Katy even had special handkerchiefs embroidered for the moms and had them placed on the seats for the ceremony and served as a heartfelt surprise as they took their places.

Everything about this wedding just makes you want to swoon. From the amazing love story of the couple (they met in pre-school!) to the flawless execution of every meaningful detail that made the day absolutely perfect. The wedding was held at the groom’s parents house on Lake Weir and the driveway was transformed into a stunning dining room under the stars and the beach was the perfect setting for bonfires (complete with s’mores) and dancing. The magical evening drew to a close with a sparkler exit and Katy and Cooper cruising away in a vintage Woodie. Perfection!


Thank you again Katy and Cooper for not only allowing me to be a part of your incredibly special day, but to help bring your beautiful vision to life. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness.


So many thanks to the awesome team of vendors that made this day happen.

Rustic Red Winter

by Emily Grace

This inspiration board is what I picture for a winter wedding.  I helped a good friend of mine, Lauren from Every Last Detail, do day of coordination for a wedding this past weekend, and I think we both wanted to cry.  If they made minor changes to some of the elements, the centerpieces in particular, their reception would have looked a thousand times better.  The bride was very particular about not wanting the reception to be Christmasy, but I love the idea of using pine cones to spruce up the decor fora  winter wedding.  They are cheap and can really add great look of rustic elegance (does that make sense?).  Als0, what goes better with rustic elegance than the mason jar!  I fell in love with the idea of turning mason jars into ornament like votive holders.  What a great DIY project!  I hope you enjoy looking at this as much as I enjoyed creating it.  I know the green shoes are a little out there, but I love fun shoes and what a great way to round out the Christmas feel.

Have a most delightful holiday and a very merry Christmas.  I think it’s probably time for me to make some fudge or other tasty Christmas treats!

Keep it Sweet ‘n Low!
