Sadie & Eric are a couple close to our heart & I am so thrilled to share this wedding with all of you. Sadie & Eric met in Dallas, Texas but both are from Alabama! I loved hearing Eric’s best man tell the story of how they met at their rehearsal dinner. Eric was smitten with Sadie from the beginning and like they say, the rest is history! Sadie had two big priorities when planning: the overall design & aesthetic being beautiful and her vision coming to life as well as their guests having a wonderful experience all throughout the weekend. They picked Pursell Farms to host their wedding weekend because they wanted to cultivate that entire wedding weekend experience. We kicked the weekend off with a texas-style country hoedown where everyone came in their cowboy chic. Wedding day the ladies shared a walk & coffee with Sadie, the guys went to play golf & skeet shoot. Sadie’s dad held an awards ceremony at lunch for the men which was a big hit! We had some rain that day that changed our ceremony plans but you could never tell that either Sadie or Eric were upset. They were truly just so happy to get married.
Sadie & Eric wanted to share a meal with their guests, and everyone to enjoy that experience together. Sadie had an eye for detail & design so we were just there to reaffirm her decisions, help her source some items, and help bring it together in a cohesive fashion with Staci from Laurel Greene Studio. My husband, Lee, even custom built the panels that went behind the band with wallpaper Sadie found. This was one of my favorite design features of the entire event. My other favorite was all of the thoughtfully created paper details from Jacki of Salt + Paperie, Alex McCain’s watercolor drawings & Jennifer Reynold’s beautiful calligraphy.
Sadie’s dress might go down as an all time fave for me too. Once the party’s got going, we brought our Alabama & TCU shakers, Sadie & Eric’s respective colleges, & a late night pass of milkshakes, chicken biscuits & french fries made their way around. Our band led a second line out the front where guests sent Sadie & Eric off with mutli-colored streamers.
