Casual Elegance at the Stave Room: Kate & Robert


I'm so excited to share Kate & Rob's spring wedding day.

I have a special place in my heart for church weddings, and I loved that Kate & Rob's story started at the one they chose for their wedding day. Isn't that the sweetest? We had so much fun working with the couple and the bride's mom to finalize all of their gorgeous details and decor at one of our favorite spots, The Stave Room.

We'll share just a few of our favorite details of the big day! Kate and her bridesmaids got ready at her mom's house in the Morningside neighborhood. I know those moments captured at their house will be cherished forever. I loved Kate's classic invitations, which we styled in a whimsical way to reflect the bride's style (even including an Italy stamp- where the couple spent their honeymoon!).

I adored Kate's bridal style. LeAnne Marshall was the perfect fit for her laid back, girly style. We can always count on the girls at the Sentimentalist find exactly what our brides are looking for! Kate's flowers were absolutely stunning. The church and the reception room really couldn't have looked more magical thanks to the artistry of Jacki at Stylish Stems. I also loved how their sweet dog, Russell, was featured on the chalkboard by Kate Turner.  The chalkboard also incorporated a sweet little dachshund and red balloon, which Rob has drawn for Kate on many occasions. Such a sweet symbol of their love! The night was not only beautiful - but super fun. We always appreciate when our clients invest in a killer band and caterer. Special thank you to Emerald Empire and Bold American for always creating amazing events for our clients.

Thank you, Kate, for trusting us with your beautiful vision! & A big thank you to you and your sweet family for referring us to so many of your friends this coming year. We were so honored to work with you all. Wishing you and Rob many years of happiness!
