We’re loving the laid-back feel of this outdoor wedding. The bridesmaids wore cute TOMS shoes while the groomsmen wore button downs and bow ties without jackets. The “no-fuss” decor went with the laid-back vibe, with pretty sunflowers throughout. And, of course, we just love their romantic rowboat photos.

From their Photographer: Abby and Lee’s engagement photos back in May were at the Nashville zoo, and I knew then they were such genuine and happy people. It was clear then that they were crazy about each other and couldn’t wait to get married. Their wedding day on October 13, 2013 was in Hendersonville at the Lighthouse Event and Wedding Center. What a beautiful venue where the ceremony was looking out on a beautiful lake. There was a boat that was able to be used for images and we got some of my favorites I’ve ever gotten at a wedding. The venue was all inclusive, they got ready, had the ceremony and reception there. The love these two have for each other could be felt by everyone there and it was such a happy occassion.
We’re so excited to introduce our newest sponsor, Better Ever After, an experience registry for couples who just don’t need more “stuff.” Whether you already have all the home goods you need, or blenders and butter dishes simply aren’t your cup of tea, Better Ever After is your wedding gift registry alternative that lets you sign up for fun activities that you can enjoy as a couple.
There are endless options for activities that fit all personalities from foodies to adventurers like cooking classes, bike tours, and so much more! What better way to keep that wedding rush (and romance) going than with tons of date nights that are actually awesome?
These experiences are fun (and memorable), and are much more convenient: you don’t need a doorman to accept the delivery and they don’t take up room in your closet. They’re real gifts, not cash, that your guests would actually enjoy giving — Nobody gets excited about giving a salad spinner and one knife.

We’ve caught a fever. No, not the icky mixture of sweats and chills, but the kind that makes us a little dizzy with love. We’re currently obsessed with all things gold and rounded up a few of our favorite bridal accessories that’s been making our eyes light up. It was love at first sight with this Melissa Joy Manning Diamond Halo Ring from Fragments and we went on a search for a head-to-toe gold bridal look. This is one fever you wouldn’t want to shake!
