I have such a gorgeous southern wedding to share with you today! Whitney and Courtney said ‘I do’ under stunning oak trees draped in Spanish moss overlooking the marshy ruins at the romantic Runnymede Plantation. From Courtney’s flawless dress to her beautiful bridesmaids carrying this years very popular baby’s breath bouquets… this wedding is full of southern charm – make sure to read the brides terrific advice below!
I think its just darling how the photographer caught the boys trying to figure out how to tie their bow ties… I’m sure looking back for them it was a great moment.
What was your favorite part of your wedding day? Of course, the ceremony was the most meaningful. It’s unbeatable – especially that first look at my groom! I also really loved driving away in our getaway car with my husband, being able to look back and see the tent and the beautiful shining sparklers lighting up the night by all of our friends and family. It was so special for both of us…
What is your advice to brides currently in the planning process? Although it feels like you can plan everything to a tee, something will still not go according to your meticulous plans! Roll with the punches and remember that the things that are a little off-kilter will be the things that you look back and laugh about the most. – Courtney
