Gosh, it’s finally time to share Kristin & Joshua’s beautiful summer wedding at Riverchase Country Club. Kristin & Joshua loved celebrating with their family and friends and I will say, their day was absolutely beautiful. Kristin and Joshua decided to wait until Kristin walked down the aisle to first see each other. Seeing Kristin’s face as she was about to turn the corner and see her hubby-to-be was absolutely priceless. There were a little nerves but a lot of excitement! The two spent the sunset on the golf course, gosh it was so dreamy!

Hello friends! Today I’m excited to share Stephanie & Aaron’s Wedding at Aldridge Gardens. Stephanie and Aaron loved Aldridge Gardens as it played a significant role in their engagement season as Aaron proposed to Stephanie at the Butterfly Garden at Aldridge! They knew it would be the perfect spot to say their vows and become husband and wife. These two loved celebrating with their friends and family throughout the night. They thought of everything, from incorporating their fur babies on their cake to honoring their late grandparents during the ceremony. Enjoy these beautiful photos from Sydney Lauren Photography.

Well what a month September was! This month I had 3 beautiful friends say I Do and the KP Planning Team helped FIVE lovely brides marry their hubby. I must say, it was quite busy!! We loved every moment of these gorgeous wedding days and watched their visions come to life. Amanda and I are gearing up for 2021 (how is it almost here) and we have exciting things coming next Spring! 

Heading into October, I’m excited to see all of these fall weddings come to life. We will be all over Alabama this fall and I’m super excited to see new venues and new designs. Who else is loving this cool weather and sweaters? I know it’s not just me! I am pretty pumped to find some super cute pumpkins and mums for my house!
