Callie and Cason

Saturday, February 19, 2011































Wanna know what a Style Me Pretty girl's wedding looks like? Callie, a Little Black Book guru, could have scored her job on these stunning photos alone!

Callie and Cason were married at her parents' home, and crafted most of the wedding by hand to ensure that each of the 180 guests felt like they were attending an intimate dinner party, rather than an over-the-top fête. The bride wore a Vera Wang gown and two garters, one her grandmother's garter worn in 1951, with the original penny still sewed on. Her bouquet was tied with her grandmother's handkerchief and wrapped with lace from her mother's wedding hat, in a nod to her family's many happy marriages. Bridesmaids wore Priscilla of Boston gowns, and Callie gave her groom sailboat cuff links in honor of his dream to go on a great sailing adventure.

The two were married on the front porch, were Cason proposed, and Callie made her entrance in a 1950's Chevy truck. After the ceremony, guests headed to a tent across the lawn, where sweet tea and margaritas were served. Party Thyme Catering provided an elegant Southern repast, and the buttercream confection and chocolate-covered groom's cake were promptly devoured. Katy House of Flowers arranged blush roses and ivory hydrangeas to match the bride's bouquet and the wreaths hung on the front door, and Abigail Seymour was on hand to capture each exquisite moment. Just lovely, don't you agree?

  11. Rode up in a Chevy truck? Sounds like my Husband's kind of gal ;)

    I did consider learning to play "she thinks my tractor's sexy" on the guitar for a wedding gift to him, but it never happened.
