Emily and John

Emily and John
June 14,2008
I met Emily and John back in January at a bridal show. Emily had her baby in the most fashionable baby sling, I'd ever seen. At that time, I was pregant and that's what brought us together. Emily told me her vision for her wedding. She called it "Southern Couture". I LOVED IT. And on June 14th her vision came to life! It was a beautiful day a few clouds in the sky, a little warm but not too hot and a perfect day for a wedding.
The ceremony was held on the grounds of Eagle Creek park. This was the first time that I've done a ceremony at this venue but I'm always up for a new challenge. The ground was a still a little soggy due to all the rain. As soon as the limo pulled up and everyone was in position the ceremony began. Emily was beautiful as she walked down the aisle with her father. After the ceremony, guests drove to the City Market for the cocktail hour and reception.
This was the first reception at the City Market since their renovation. We were still working out some kinks the week of wedding but on Saturday everything came together.
Guests were directed to the cocktail hour by a sign that John made that said "Watering Hole" The Deep Fried Acoustablasters played bluegrass music as mint juleps and hors d’oeuvres were passed. Guests took their placecard hanging from clothes pins then replaced it with a Polaroid picture of themselves. A very cute and unique idea for a guest book!
Dinner was served family style by MBP catering another southern touch. The table numbers were personalized to Johnny and Emily. Emily took pictures of thier little girl and dog. The favors were jars of honey with personalized labels reading "BEE-lieve in Love"
During the evening all the guests raved about all the personal touches. This wedding had Emily and John written all over it. It was one to remember and I'm so happy that I was able to be apart it!

Darcie it was so exciting to meet and work with another Darci! You were just so great to work beside for the day and completely helpful with everything. I know Emily appreciated everything you did for her and their wedding and reception were both just beautiful and so perfect. I'm sure it was everything she had envisioned. The entire day was so smooth to photograph and I can't thank you enough for all of your planning and coordinating! What a success! --Darci, Bodell Photography
