One very special dress, restyled so these beautiful sisters could share it. This was such a memorable and fun project for us. Stay tuned for photos from wedding number three!

One of my favorite traditions I’ve seen to date? The sweet Epperson sisters sharing the same dress on their wedding day yet altering it to fit their personal style. So incredibly special. We cannot wait to share how Sarah will be wearing the gown coming up in October!

Jessi & Chris recited their marriage vows on a cliff overlooking a castle in Scotland, and while we didn’t get to go with them overseas, we did get a little bit of magic of our own when we photographed their engagement session and Jessi’s bridal session. Sure, we didn’t have castles and majestic cliffs, but Alabama cherry trees are pretty beautiful in their own right. Especially next to a beautiful bride!! Congratulations, you two! We are so happy for you! Hollow To Hem The Hair and Makeup Collective

What can I say I’m an outfit repeater 🤷🏻‍♀️ (anyone else seen The Lizzie McGuire Movie?) This was taken the week before AL USA at @hollowtohem. Sammi and Ai have become such sweet friends and I don’t know how they made me love this gown even more than I did before- but somehow they did! They work magic!! @theclothestree_ helped me find this gown back in January and I’ve worn it any chance I’ve gotten since ☺️

Another Perfect Palette feature!

When you are as passionate about your pets as Rosemary and Matt are, you will most definitely have an animal-themed wedding just like they did!

The sweet duo tied the knot in with their friends, family, and furries present. #TPPVendor, Mary Margaret Smith captured ALL of the pet-centric details, along with other wow-inducing elements like the ceremony backdrop and the blooms from Jess Green. #FeaturedOnTPP

Brace yourselves, m'dears, because today's #RealWedding is over-the-top in the best way possible! Becky's Brides helped plan this swanky soiree & with florals by Cece Designs — let's just say that we're 100% positive that it'll inspire a pin-fest! And lucky for us Eric & Jamie Photography was there to capture it all. #DailyDoseOfColor

Thank you for the perfect alterations...🙂
Thank you for making Lynleigh's dress a perfect fit! She brought home 2nd alternate overall at National American Miss. ❤️
Not only helpful in making my alterations appear non-existent (and a beautiful and simple idea for a bustle) but helped me find a local cleaner for my beautiful dress after the fact. I'm so thankful to have worked with you for my wedding with my dress.
