Hello loves!!

Today I decided to dive in and share my amazing experience at Creative at Heart Round 9, put on by rockstar planner & educator Kat Schmoyer. Really, I don't know where to begin. My expectations were quite high after following this amazing  conference and hearing a raving review from Alex & Sara Lucas with AL Weddings, so I was ready for a great experience. However, I didn't know it would change my life. The keynote speakers were brilliant, encouraging, and real. Hearing Laura Foote, Lara Casey, Nancy Ray and Katelyn James (just to name a few) left me speechless. 

I didn't know how much I needed this conference. The first day was overwhelming but enriching. I think I had a little identity crisis  because I wanted #allthethings but I didn't know quite how to make it happen. I met some amazing creatives in my breakout sessions and panel groups that taught me new and exciting things for my business! On the second day, I learned from Lara Casey. AND WOW! She was amazing. She brought so much joy and motivation with her goal-setting speech. I must say, it was one of my favorites! 

Each day we had several keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and panel groups to learn and grow from. I was given new ideas for my website, blogging, and social media! I was taught how to give my clients the best experience ever and I am so grateful! 

I laughed, I cried, and I cried a little more and I met some amazing creatives. Most importantly I truly realized who I am and my purpose in this world. My passion is to serve the bridal world, I'm tearing up thinking about it. My heart is all here in my business and I'm so happy this conference helped me confirm my passion for wedding planning. I have some HUGE plans for my future with this business and I cannot wait to see it happen. I'm forever thankful for this amazing journey in my life. Cheers friends!

OH MY!! Look at these two! Pareasa & Zach had the most elegant wedding at Stonewood Farms overlooking Lake Tuscaloosa. Pareasa and I met several months ago and I just fell in love with her sweet spirit and her bridal glow! She was seriously the most precious and happy bride all the way up to her wedding day. 

On Pareasa's wedding day we had a little rain in the forecast so we moved her ceremony and reception inside and under the covered patio at Stonewood Farms. I must say, this plan B was one of the most beautiful back-up plans I've ever seen! The lake as the background of their I Do's was breathtaking. Their intimate ceremony was absolutely beautiful and I loved every moment of it. They also had their precious pup, Luca, in their the ceremony and it was precious! You don't want to miss this adorable photogenic pup! 

At the reception, her guests had the best time! The dance floor was always packed especially with the Persian songs! We had a few Persian traditions, such as the cake knife dance, known as Raghseh Chagoo where they dance to the bride & groom with the cake knife! How much fun! We also had a Persian table called the Aghd ceremony with each item representing something for the new bride & groom's future. Pareasa's sweet mom put together the table and we absolutely loved learning more about their culture. 

Enjoy these amazing photos from Eric & Jamie, they are breathtaking!

Hello loves!

I'm excited to welcome Jessi & Matt to the KP Planning family! Jessi & Matt met while in college at the University of Alabama when  Of course Matt realized that Jessi was someone he wanted to date, but sweet Jessi turned him down a few times because she was too worried about ruining a friendship. Little did she know, she would be spending the rest of her life with him! They continued to build a friendship until their senior year when they officially started dating. After 4 years of dating, Matt finally asked Jessi to be his wife! 

Last fall Jessi and her dad decided to run a half marathon together in Naples, Florida so of course Matt joined for the weekend trip! Jessi thought that maybe Matt would propose on this perfect trip together, but didn't want to get her hopes up. After they arrived in Naples, they went to a nice dinner and a walk on the private beach to watch the sunset. Matt knew the moment was perfect BUT he told Jessi how he wasn't proposing tonight and that they would look at rings when they got back to Birmingham. HA! Jessi was a little disappointed because she knew it was perfect, but sweet Matt had something better in mind. 

Sunday morning was the race and when Jessi and her dad crossed the finish line, Matt and her mom were waiting for them. Even though Jessi was so tired after the half marathon, Matt insisted they go to the water to take some photos. At that moment he decided to ask Jessi to be his wife! How precious! They have a precious corgi, named peanut which is the most photogenic dog I've ever seen! 

I'm so excited for their fabulous wedding this fall at The Club! Jessi loves weddings as she is an editor of Alabama Wedding Magazine. Fun Fact: Jessi & I once cheered together for the Oak Mountain Eagles! Woo hoo! So happy to see Jessi start her life with Matt!

Oh my. I'm so very excited to share Tori & Casey's beautiful wedding day with you all. This day was a dream, Tori and Casey were a vision. What every bride and groom hope to be on their wedding day, Tori and Casey were just that. These two were made for each other and looking at them interact all day completely showed that they were each other's person. 

Meeting Tori and her sweet mom, Becky, I knew this wedding would be a beautiful and exciting day but I had no idea how lovely and sentimental Tori & Casey's wedding would be. Enjoy these beautiful photos from their day! 

The Dream Team:

Wedding Planner: Kendal Perry | Photography: Katie & Alec Photography | Florist: HotHouse | Props: Prophouse | Venue: Pursell Farms | Videography: Main Street Productions | Wedding Gown: Heidi Elnora | Calligraphy: Gracefully Made Art | Groom's Attire: Jos. A. Bank | Wedding Cake: Dreamcakes | Band: Even & Odd's Band | Transportation: Accent Limo

The Details

Tori wanted pure elegance on her wedding day and she absolutely had it. The stationary, the colors, the dress, it was all so perfect! 

The First Look

Tori chose to have a first look with her bridesmaids (who never even saw a photo of her dress!), her dad and of course her hubby to be, Casey. The reaction on everyone's face's truly show how you should feel when you see a bride as beautiful as Tori.

The Wedding Party

Both Tori and Casey had some pretty great friends over the years which lead to a wedding party of 24! It was a little larger than most, but when you have the sweetest (& crazy fun) group like these two, you must include them all to make the day perfect!

The Ceremony 

Tori & Casey said their vows near the lake at Pursell Farms and it was absolutely breathtaking. With a high rain percentage predicted all week, we took the chance to have it outside and wow! It was breathtaking! Their home church pastor married Tori and Casey, who also wed Tori's parents! These two released two white doves symbolizing their union as they begin their journey in life together.

Sunset Photos

This sweet couple decided after they said their vows to each other, to head to Pursell Farms Mountain top for a few intimate photos. The precious moments after the ceremony are so essential, I love to see the smiles on their faces after they are officially husband and wife!

The Reception

So, this was the most fun I've had choosing photos for a blog! Tori and Casey's guests knew how to party! The week of the wedding Auburn Basketball threw us a curved ball by making it until the final four and of course the game was taking place right in the middle of the wedding. As Casey was previously an Auburn football player, along with many groomsmen & guests, Tori knew she had to have the game live somewhere for guests to watch. We had a pretty big crowd on the patio during cocktail hour cheering on the Auburn Tigers! During the reception, we had a few guest singers...Tori's dad's college roommate & one of Casey's groomsmen..which really got the party going. These two had the best time with all of their friends and family before leaving for their honeymoon! It was such a sweet day as they all got to be together one more time before Tori and Casey officially moved to Virginia for Casey to purse his passion as a Pro Football player for the Washington Redskins.

I'm so excited to share these amazing photos from Nicole & Drew's beautiful wedding. These two got married at the 4-H center's outdoor chapel where the natural greenery set the backdrop and it was so dreamy! Laure with LSL Events saw Nicole's vision and was the perfect florist for the day! Nicole and Drew had a beautiful intimate ceremony at the chapel and celebrated at the Pavilion on the lake with their sweet friends and family.

Nicole had a beautiful natural vision for her wedding and let me tell you, it was amazing! She and Drew decided to have a New Orleans themed cake cutting with a charm pull for the bridesmaids and a second line send off. It was so much fun!

Lindsay & Joe Tillman with New Native Photography captured the beautiful day, enjoy below!
