Sneak Peak: Anna & Michael's Farm Wedding

So, with all the excitement of Anna & Michael's wedding being featured on Style Me Pretty last Wednesday and on the Wedding Post on Tuesday, I had to wait to feature the photos here. It's been extremely difficult to keep it all under wraps. And just to keep you in suspense a little longer, I'm going to wait until Monday to start posting my features of their wedding day! This way they can have the entire week to themselves! Until then, enjoy this little sneak peak of what's to come...

Kaylen & Patrick are married!

Kaylen Revels and Patrick Lewis were married on Saturday in a sweet ceremony at Covenant Presbyterian Church. The reception followed in fabulous style at the Clinton Presidential Library where guests danced the night away! Until I have the professional photos from Eli Murray, I thought I'd share a few of my iPhone detail shots from the night. Enjoy...
Centerpieces from Distinctive Designs by Tanarah, Candelabras & Linens from Party Time Rentals, Vintage Lace Runners from Etsy, Round Banquette Sofa from Trendstyle Events.
Floating candles rested on the shelved window over looking the city. It was STUNNING.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Lewis!

Kaylen Revels and Patrick Lewis were married Saturday in one of the sweetest ceremonies I've seen this year. I'll be sharing the beautiful photos from Eli Murray soon, but until then, I have a few ceremony screen grabs from their wonderful videographer, Paul Viefhaus of Wedding Videography Services.

KK & Patrick chose to wait until the ceremony to see each other, so this was the moment when their eyes met for the first time on their wedding day...
