It was so great to catch up with sweet friends who live in different places. We are scattered to the four winds these days! (But thankfully, mostly in the South!)
Off they go!
One of my favorite touches from this wedding is that Mac decided to have us each wear roses in our hair. That fit her personality perfectly, and it made me (and I think all of us) feel pretty and girly and special. There's just something about a girl with flowers in her hair.
I also really loved the way she utilized the senses--particularly smell. I feel like weddings focus a lot on the visual, and the auditory, but what about the sense of smell? Mary Catherine had a bouquet of roses and gardenias, and later, for the reception, put gardenias in her hair. Also, instead of throwing birdseed or rose petals and she and Tim made their exit, we had little handfuls of lavender. Mmmmm smelled so good.
Here is a pic of the sweet, beautiful bride and me:
Off they go!
Fyi, their rehearsal dinner was at a really cool venue in downtown Memphis, near the river, called the Center for Southern Folklore. If you ever want to buy some great folk art, and the time for Double Decker has passed and won't come around for another 11 months or so, then go to this place. They've got plenty.
