We were so thrilled to be featured on Southern Weddings yesterday! McKara + Brandon’s wedding was so much fun, and chock-full of details. They live in a downtown Lakeland loft and wanted their celebration to highlight all of the things they love about their little town. Yes, please!
We jumped at the chance to help them pull of a gorgeous lakeside ceremony, then arrange a vintage car parade to their transport guests to a block party reception. When we tell you it was one of our favorites, hopefully you believe us. Just in case you need a bit more encouragement, here is some serious eye candy from Esther Louise Photography:
Normally, we love to chat through the details here on our blog. However, McKara so eloquently talked through the heart behind this wedding in the feature, that we have to send you that way! So, go take a look!
The joy on their faces. Those grins just never get old!
