the venues

i promised a little more detail on the bulleted list i left y'all with and i am back to deliver. i figured i would start off with the venues. essentially, they were the first thing we got checked off the list (right after i choose the date). i picked my september 24th date and stayed there. i didn't want to move it. from the get go, it seemed like our day.

like i said before, the ceremony will be held at a beautiful church about 10 minutes away from downtown. its a pretty big sanctuary, updated but still holds that traditional charm that i love so much. its definitely not modern. it's beautiful in my eyes. perfect. center aisle. stained glass everywhere. and i'm not talking stained glass that has pictures of the Lord in it - i'm talking just a bunch of different colors put together for a glorious window (or 12). i can't wait to show you.

the reception is where my heart lives. it is being held at a historic home in downtown greenville. perfect location for my guests - since downtown is so dang precious. the house it tucked away back from a busy-ish street. and behind the house is a little secret garden with a pond. and a lawn perfectly made to hold a wedding reception. since i've decided not to spill the exact locations or show you exact pictures of the places, i figured i could go ahead and share with you some inspiration that i've picked up over the last few months.

probably a combination of style me pretty, southern weddings and snippet and ink

the reception will have lights overhead (a tent will be used only as a backup for inclement weather), poms tied to the trees and quilts for some friends to sit on.

it's going to be a fabulous night that will hopefully be a great party. can y'all tell i'm just a little bit excited? because i am...
