Hitched: The Ceremony

I am so thankful that my photographer and videographer were able to capture every minute and detail of my ceremony because it flew by and was such a blur!


Moments before the ceremony, Matt and I gave each other handwritten letters to read together {between a door}. This was such an intimate moment and I am so glad we decided to do it. 

I loved these moments!
Burlap pew cones with baby's breath, and clear votives with floating candles were everywhere! I swoon over how pretty the "M" in petals turned out too!

Our harpist did such a wonderful job. She even took the time to learn Thunderstruck {not easy} for the groomsmen to walk out to, and Gaga for the bridesmaids!

Seating of Grandparents and Mothers ~ ‘Till There Was You (The Beatles)
Groom and Groomsmen’s Entrance ~ Thunderstruck (ACDC)
Bridesmaid’s Processional ~ To Make You Feel My Love (Adele)
Bride’s Processional ~ Canon in D (Pachelbel)
Vows ~ Whatever It Is (Zac Brown Band)
Recessional ~ Paparazzi (Lady Gaga) and Firework (Katy Perry)

"When the newlyweds walk your way, toss the pom poms and yell HOORAY!"
 Remember that Pinterest Party I hosted {CLICK HERE} to make all 363 pom poms?

  30. The wedding cakes are masterly crafted and decorated by a talented and creative baker. The bride and groom will often use the wedding cakes as the centerpiece in the wedding reception. Here are a few ideas in choosing the perfect wedding cake.

  33. LOVE all of your wedding photos. Thanks to your blog I found and chose The Palmer building for my upcoming wedding. I was having such a hard time finding a venue that I loved, I was very discouraged in my search when I happened to stumble upon your photos via Pinterest and decided to make an appointment to see the facility. Long story short I fell in love with the place and later found out we get a great discount due to my fiance's father being a Charlotte fireman!! Funny how things work out :)

  34. Oh my gosh, I absolutely ADORE the letter exchange photo! It's a brilliant idea and I can't get over the emotion captured so perfectly in this. I'd have loved to do this at my own wedding. Would you mind if I featured this post in my blog? I'd love to share this idea!
