a wedding story. - keep calm & carry on.

Oh y'all I'm TOO excited about our guest blogger today!!! This girl and I have really hit it off through blogland and I just ADORE her! 
And her wedding? WOWZA. 

Hello lovelies! My name is Katie and I blog over at Keep Calm and Carry On. I've guest posted for Lauren before and am so happy she has decided to have me back {or is she crazy?! ;)} I'm really excited to show you little portions of my wedding day with Lauren's wedding series! She's so creative, isn't she?
Billy and I were married on August 28, 2010. We have been dating for almost 7 years {married almost 1..woo-hoo!} and met my freshman year in college. After college, he moved from his hometown in Cleveland, Ohio to where I grew up in Columbus, Ohio. We got married in a beautiful church and had the reception at a nice country club in the same town. The country club was just recently renovated and so everything was really new and modern.
We had a *LOVEBIRD* theme for our wedding, which you will get a glimpse of in these pictures! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! :)
I'm in love with the color red so I knew I had to wear some bright red heels!
Leading up to our ceremony and reception, we spent the day at the country club where they had seperate men and ladies locker rooms. The locker rooms were stocked with beer, appetizers, flat screen tv's, and a pool table for the boys to play while hanging around! My girls and I enjoyed mimosas and fresh fruit while getting our hair and make up done. I remember watching my florist start to set up the dining room with our flowers and vintage birdcages and getting so excited!

Here is a look at our florals & our lovebird theme. As you can see, we had vintage birdcages hung from the ceiling with flowers pouring out of them! For the name card table, my florist made rustic branches with flowers sitting in them and the name cards sat below the "trees". The room where we had our reception has a panoramic view of a waterfall and of the 18th hole on the golf course that..you can see some of the huge windows in the picture with our centerpieces.

Our wedding party consisted of 7 bridesmaids, 7 groomsmen, 2 flower girls, and 1 ring bearer :) We felt so blessed to have all of our best friends & family be a big part of our special day.
Well, I have really enjoyed recreating my wedding day with all of you! It was a magical day for both of us. I hope you liked looking at our pictures and don't forget to come say HI to me over on my blog! A big thank you to Lauren for allowing me to share my wedding with her friends! :)

A 'lovebirds theme'?!!? TOO stinkin' cute! Just like Miss Katie! 
Thanks again for sharing your wedding with us girly! You were absolutely STUNNING! 

Happy Tuesday Y'all!
