Hello brides!!

Recently I've had several girls ask me just how to preserve their wedding bouquet so I wanted to give you a few ideas below! My bridal bouquet was absolutely beautiful and I knew I wanted to keep it forever. There are so many options for your bouquet, whether you want to just air dry or freeze dry, here are a few helpful tips!

Air Drying your flowers is a pretty simply DIY project, however all of those beautiful colors of your wedding bouquet may not remain. This is one of the popular ways to preserve if you simply don't want to throw them away. You can also get them professionally pressed, which can keep more of the color and shape of your beautiful flowers in your bouquet. 

One of my personal favorite ways to preserve a bouquet, is sending it off to get it freeze-dried and then put into a shadow box. Ageless Blooms in Birmingham does an amazing job at preserving flowers. She can place them for you in any shadow box so you can display them in your hallway or bedroom at your new home with your hubby!

Have you preserved your flowers in a different way? Drop a comment below to tell me new ideas on how to preserve your wedding flowers!

Today I'm so excited to share with you Alayna & JD's Birmingham wedding at Vulcan Park and Museum. Alayna and JD are the perfect Birmingham couple! They love the views and everything Birmingham has to offer. They knew when choosing a venue that the terrace at Vulcan would be perfect for their wedding. 

Alayna & JD said their vows on the terrace with a beautiful clear top tent and the day was perfect! They had the best night dancing with all of their friends overlooking the beautiful views of downtown Birmingham. Enjoy these fabulous photos from Landon Meserve!

Hello loves!

Thanks for stopping by the KP Blog where I chat all about weddings and a little about me! Today I want to give you a few ideas for the perfect bridesmaid's gifts! We know that your girls do SO much for you leading up to your wedding day so of course you want to thank them with a sweet gift! Below are a few of my go-to suggestions for your bridesmaids gifts. 

  1. Cute PJ's for getting ready on wedding day
    • One of my favorite (& coziest) PJ sets come from PJ Harlow. They have tank tops, short sleeve, long sleeve, pant, shorts, you name it! These are my favorite pajamas because they are so incredibly soft! 
    • My next shop for bridesmaids pajamas and robes comes from BHLDN. I love the details of these outfits, they are so dainty and stylish! 
  2.  A Compact Mirror
    • I absolutely love this beautiful compact mirror from The Knot Shop. It has a sweet and empowering message on the front and on the back there is room for a personalized message to your bestie. How sweet!
  3. A personalized bracelet or necklace
    • I absolutely adore Alex & Ani bracelets. So obviously I am swooning over the bridesmaids bracelet they have! 
    • Also, this gold personalized bracelet is too cute! You can find it on Etsy and engrave their name and wedding date!
  4. A Monogramed cosmetic case 
    • I love the cosmetic cases from The Knot Shop. And whats better than a monogramed anything?! You know we all love our monograms on anything and everything! 
  5. A handwritten note <3
    • There is nothing better than a handwritten note thanking them for everything they did to make your engagement and wedding day perfect. I also suggest adding this to any gift you may give your girls, family, friends and vendors!  Some of my favorite personalized wedding thank you notes come from Paper Source

Hello loves! 

Today I'm excited to bring some Southern Charm to you! I was so excited to have some of my creativity come to life in this beautiful shoot. My sweet friend Shelby with Shelby Bonner Photography and I decided a fresh look would be perfect! We chose to do the shoot at Belle Farms in Sterret for our beautiful backdrop. I thought a nice botanical feel at this gorgeous venue would be breathtaking. We decided to go with a floral design on our model, Morgan's, wedding gown and table linen to complete the look. 

We started the day with beautiful Bailey Ingle in a classic ivory ball gown by Justin Alexander. She has that sophisticated look that every bride hopes to have and we knew this dress would be perfect! We had a vision for her to be that ideal bride! Fun fact about Bailey- she is actually pursuing a music career in Nashville, TN and she is AMAZING! In a few weeks she will be preforming with Luke Bryan in Birmingham!

We then moved to our botanical bride, Morgan with her lovely bridesmaids Reilly and a familiar face, Bailey! We had too much fun with Morgan and her bridesmaids and little flower girl, Madilyn. We all laughed and made it through this HOT summer day at Belle Farms!

We had the best time getting to know these amazing owners at Belle Farm. I adore their love for their venue and what it offers all of their beautiful brides. They have some big dreams for their venue and an amazing story with it! The little bridal cottage was my absolute favorite place, the walls and details were to die for! I'm so honored to be able to work at this beautiful venue with all our the amazing creatives we got together with for this photo shoot. Enjoy these beautiful photos from Shelby Bonner!

Hello friends!

Please help me welcome my precious intern, Rylee! Rylee is from Sylacauga and is currently studying Communication Studies at Samford University. When I met Rylee, I was so intrigued because we had so much in common! On our coffee date I asked how she heard about me and she said a woman who was working at a boutique on 280 told her about me. I realized that was Everly's Boutique and Ms. Kim is the owner who I've talked to forever when I'm shopping there. It made me realize 1. I shop too much, 2. I love making friends any place I go! (Thank you, Kim!)

Sweet Rylee is so excited to start learning more about events and weddings. Her favorite thing about weddings & events is getting to know the clients and see their personalities incorporated into their big day! A few fun facts about Rylee: She has been involved in competitive horse jumping for 12 years and is currently on the Samford Equestrian Team. She in highly involved in Church of the Highlands and has served as a youth counselor on several retreats. Rylee has a heart to serve and I can't wait to see how she can better serve our clients!
