Real Wedding: Kindra and Phil

unnamed (7)

Kindra and Phil celebrated their wedding on September 21, 2013 at their family farm. The couple chose Splashdrop Photography to capture the special day. Infused Catering provided the meal and Sugar Leaf Bakery created the delicious cake for the reception. Shannon Custom Floral designed all the arrangements, including the stunning bouquet, and decorated the reception tent. The yummy S’mores bar was designed by Social Graces. Kindra bought her beautiful gown from Normans in Downtown Springfield.

Here’s a sample of the gorgeous day!

My Winter Wedding

This past weekend was full of two things – weddings and winter weather. After a beautiful day on Friday, temps dropped and freezing rain replaced the sunshine. Pair that with photographing a wedding on Saturday and setting up our Social Graces booth at the local Bridal Expo and I have found myself dreaming of a winter wedding. My own wedding, 4 years ago, was in the fall. It was classic, black and white, and simple. I’m in more of a frilly mood lately, so, I thought it would be fun to create a collection of attire I would incorporate if I was planning a winter wedding now.

For me, a flowing gown with all the right accessories:bhldn wedding dressWindswept Gown, Bhldn

How about you? Would your wedding change course if you were planning for a different season?
