Congratulations! :: {Karen & Kurt's Wedding Day!}

On this amazingly beautiful October Saturday, Kurt & Karen will tie the knot! I am so incredibly excited for these two and to see all of the amazing personal details and hard work that Karen has put into the planning come to life!

They are getting married at the Orchid Conservatory at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and have already practiced running through this fountain...which they will also do this evening after their ceremony- and likely just as the sun sets!
And I absolutely cannot wait to show y'all Karen's dress...for real. It's so unique and so completely perfect for her! I also love that my last bride under the Green Shoes Weddings & Events name is wearing green shoes. Lovely coincidence, don't you think?

Here are a few of Karen & Kurt's engagement photos taken by Chuck Eaton.

So much love & congratulations to Kurt & Karen! I wish you tons of love, happiness, and enough crossword puzzles and games of Scrabble to last you a lifetime!

Happy Anniversary and Published! {Heather + Matthew}

Today is Heather & Matthew's first anniversary! And their wedding was recently featured in the Summer issue of The Bride's Book.

There were several super fun details & personal touches that they incorporated into their wedding day. I had such a great time helping Heather through her planning process...whether she was in Chicago finishing grad school, Alabama visting her parents, here in Charlotte with Matthew or in Louisville where she had taken a job.
And I love that Heather & Matt have become such great friends to my husband and me. I mean, how can you NOT want to be friends with these two...

Her attention to detail and the effort she put into everything from the table names to the guest book to the favors made for a fun & fabulous evening!

Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Harris! Lots of love & wishes for many happy years together!

Hugs & Cheers!

Congratulations! :: {Kelly + Johnny's Wedding Day!}

Today is THE day! I can't wait to see how all of Kelly's super fun green, black & white details come together! I've had SO much fun over the past year working with Kelly on the fun touches for her & Johnny's wedding at the Rumbling Bald Resort and I am already looking forward to lots of fun images from Krista Faulkner (which I will, of course, gladly share on the blog!)

I also thought this would be a good time to post a "sneak peek" of a picture I snapped during Kelly's bridal fun are the shoes?!

Congratulations, Kelly & Johnny! Best Wishes for a lifetime of love & laughter!

Pretty Inspiration from Style Me Pretty :: Brian + Katherine

I was so excited to see my friend Brian's wedding featured on Style Me Pretty earlier this week! Brian and his lovely bride, Katherine, had a beautiful wedding in upstate South Carolina over the 4th of July holiday weekend. I love the work that Sharon from Smitten Photography does and she did an amazing job capturing the feel of Brian + Katherine's wedding....which was such an amazing representation of them as a couple! Congrats to the new Mr. + Mrs. Hetherington!

I couldn't resist posting my two favorite pictures...the one of Brian is so "him" it's actually amusing. And I love the lighting in the one of them in the field! {Photo credit: Smitten Photography}

Be sure to check out the full post and all the fun details on Style Me Pretty here and Brian + Katherine's full gallery here.
You can also see more photos and info from the bride on the Smitten Photography blog as well!

And speaking of Style Me Pretty, I LOVE that two of my favorite Charlotte photographers, Kristin & Aaron Byrum from Kristin Byrum Photography had an engagement shoot featured on Style Me Pretty's Facebook page! So fun! Congrats to Aaron + Kristin on their feature! So excited to work with them again in April!
