I couldn’t wait to share this modern day fairy tale with you today! It’s the kind of wedding that makes you dream of being a southern belle, or a princess, or both. With a sweet tale of love, some crazy-cray crafting, a touch of nostalgia and whole lot of step off a magazine pretty, Morgan and Ty’s wedding is the kind of wedding that will just have you at hello. Throw in the perfect images of Kaylan Bradley at Happy Everything Photography, and you will see why this “once upon a time” doesn’t need any evil witches or plot twists to get to “happily ever after.”
From the Bride:
Our parents still live in the same houses where my husband and I grew up; I had no idea that the future love of my life was just down the street. I have crushed on Ty my entire life. I will never forget our first encounter at the local softball field; he asked if he could marry me one day; I said yes.
With a love that grew so close to home, Morgan and Ty’s choices to incorporate a lot of nostalgic and homey antiques created a wonderfully charming and comfortable atmosphere. All of the centerpieces were borrowed or personally curated antiques. And the “rentals” were antiques from home too. I love the buffet that served as the appetizer station for the yumscious appys handmade by Morgan’s mom. And the frames and decor on the buffet accent wall, GAWGEOUS!!!! Morgan has a great MIL too! She made every table cloth and the bride’s cake! We can’t forget to mention the beautiful handmade milk glass and teacup cup candles that were poured by a local candle maker into antique vessels, and the magnificent monogram that adorned the doors and archways.
And while I was swooning over the perfection of the Tucker Plantation venue, every photo from Happy Everything Photography that captured the sweet southern charm of Morgan and Ty made me get lost in this updated fairy tale. Thanks Happy Everything Photography. Congratulations and happily ever after wishes to Morgan and Ty!
