I love everything about today’s lavender and rustic wedding from Leigh Pearce Weddings- I was smiling the whole time while laying it out! From handmade signs and an adorable first look, to gorgeous lavender accents and a ribbon wand sendoff- this southern wedding is full of personality, love, and fun- and Liz Grogan was there to capture it all!

From the bride, Susan:

 I knew from the very beginning that I would need help with the planing process.  I had a basic idea of what I wanted, but I was lost on where or how to start.  I hired Leigh of Leigh Pearce Weddings to help me come up with a design plan, as well as help with vendor recommendations.  She was a life saver and so many people kept commenting about how relaxed I seemed during my engagement.  Is there really any other way you would want to be??  On the wedding day, it was almost magical how things came together.  I was able to relax and enjoy the day.

I made an instant connection with the two most important vendors for a wedding:  my wedding planner, Leigh and my photographer, Liz of Liz Grogan Photography.  Both of these ladies made me feel so at ease and relaxed throughout the entire wedding process. After doing engagement photos with Liz, I knew our wedding pictures would be fabulous and it was great hearing all the other vendors say they loved working with Leigh.

My favorite thing about my wedding was having the people who loved and cared about us there to celebrate.  It was such a wonderful feeling to say our vows and know that we had the love and support of those present.

I’m an English teacher and knew that I wanted to incorporate books into the design.  It was so much fun to take a small thing like a book and see how we could incorporate it into the wedding.  The escort cards were placed in a card catalog and books were used in all the centerpieces.  We also decided to use animal and horse bookends with the books; we were in a barn after all!

One reason we choose Adaumont Farm as our venue is because I wanted my now husband’s personality to be a part of the wedding day as well.  I entered the ceremony riding in the back of a classic pickup truck and served food family style, just like they would on a farm.

Understand that the wedding is about you and your fiance and focus your planning around that.  Sometimes I would get carried away worrying about other people and how they would view certain details, but then I had to realize that if my fiance and I liked it that was what mattered most. Also, hire a wedding planner!!  It can be so overwhelming and they make the process manageable and fun.

Susan’s advice is absolutely perfect, and what I say all the time- if you like it, then have it!! And hire a planner! :)

I think my favorite thing about this wedding might be the awesome card catalog for escort cards! The chalkboard signs and table numbers are all pretty amazing too though…

What’s your favorite detail from this southern wedding? Will any of you be having a fun escort card display like Susan’s card catalog?!
