Kelly and Justin's Winter Wedding!

Kelly and Justin got married in December of 2010 and I truly loved working with this family!  Kelly and Justin currently live and work in Atlanta but Kelly is originally from Raleigh and knew she wanted to get married here so she planned for the ceremony to take place at All Saints Chapel and the reception to be at Cobblestone Hall.  Our friend James at Cobblestone will tell you that Kelly was one of the very FIRST brides to sign a contract to have her reception there!  Kelly and Justin are both busy attorneys in Atlanta so they hired A Southern Soiree to help them pull off their wedding without a hitch…and that’s exactly what we did!  Here is a lovely note that Kelly’s mom (Glenda) sent me to me after the wedding:

“Megan, I can’t thank you enough for getting us through this wedding! I know we were difficult to deal with because it was so hard to get Kelly to make the final decisions but you stuck with us giving us gentle nudges and we finally got there!  It was so special too that Kelly and Justin immediately connected with you as did I.  You are a great fit for this job and I wish you every success!  I also wish you a wonderful holiday and hope you get some rest.  I hate that this is all over because I will miss you!”
—Glenda

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day from the amazingly talented Walters & Walters:

    I love the mini pecan pies as the favor. It would be perfect for my October wedding. I was wondering were I could find the acorns attached o the boxes.
