Planning a wedding long distance is always tricky. But when you live out of town, both work full time, and are both pursuing master's degrees, well that's just plain nuts! This is exactly what Blair & Bryan did.
The couple lives in Washington, DC, but they had a perfect southern wedding at one of my favorite venues, The Georgian Terrace Hotel.
The couple chose not to see each other before their ceremony, which took place at Second Ponce de Leon Baptist Church. So their photos afterwards on the church grounds were a little extra special.
Blair's beautiful bouquet was done by the amazing ladies at Bloomin' Bouquets.
They also created these gorgeous centerpieces,
and a drop-dead amazing magnolia leaf table runner. Does it get any more Southern than that?
Their escort cards were created by Dondrea of Jenkins Rose Modern Paper, who hand painted and hand wrote each one. This is quite possibly my favorite wedding detail ever.
The cake was created by Frosted Pumpkin Gourmet
The invitations were designed by the bride's sister, using a watercolor painted by the bride's mother.
