Jessica and Michael's Wedding

We attended the most beautiful wedding on Saturday.  Due to the storm, we headed to Raleigh a couple hours earlier than planned on Saturday morning.  My brother and SIL were there for her cousin's wedding so we got to have lunch with Clay and Anna Kate at McAlisters.  I always try to take advantage of being close to family and even the 30 minutes we were with them was worth it!

We then headed to my friend Kelly's home to get ready for the wedding!  Wasn't Jessica a gorgeous bride?  A.Liz made her birdcage veil that she slipped on for the reception.  Jessica found her blog through mine and when A.Liz posted about her birdcage veil, Jessica asked where she had gotten it.  Well A.Liz had made it and she offered to make one for Jessica.  How sweet is that?!!

All of Jessica and Michael's flowers were gorgeous.  I'll definitely be getting the name of their florist!

The cake was delicious!  Yes, I actually ate cake at a wedding....I typically never do!

Kelly and hubby Brett.

Jessica and Michael did not leave any details out.  Isn't this wishing tree the cutest?  Everyone wrote a wish to the couple on the lil piece of paper and tied it on the tree!

Of course she had their initials in moss letters hanging on the entrance to the Club.

This was a pretty set up of pictures of them growing up and their engagement shoot.

Towards the end of the evening, they brought in Krispy Kreme donuts with lil to-go bags.  How cute is that?!  Everyone loved them!

Kelly and I with the bride!  The bride and I went to college together and suffered through engineering classes together.  Kelly and Jessica go to church together so we all know each other in different ways! 

Jessica has impecable taste and always has!  Check out her Kate Spade sparklers.  Essential!

Kevin and I!  :)

Jessica changed into a going away dress!  They seriously are the nicest couple ever.  Such sweet people!

One last picture of Kelly and I. 
Then Kevin and I changed in the parking lot to casual clothes and hit the road to drive back to Charlotte (took us about 2 hours and 45 minutes).  Not a big deal and we were so thankful to sleep in our own beds!

Cheers to the newlyweds Jessica and Michael!  Thank you for including us in your big day and have the best time in St. Lucia!!!  :)


  1. What a beautiful wedding! I especially love the cake and the Crispy Kreme donuts idea!

    Would love for you to link this up for Bridal Talk Tuesday! xoxo

  2. Awesome! You go to more weddings than anyone I know! I hope you keep a notebook of good ideas you get from all of them.
    We did Krispy Kreme at our wedding too but I had a hook up where we were able to get the 2 donut boxes that they sell at gas stations, etc...instead of having people bag up their own.
    Only $2 a box!

  3. we are passing Krispy Kreme as our "late night snack" at our upcoming wedding too!

    Who doesn't want a donut after a few beers? :)

  4. Y'all are troppers to make the trip up and back! I love a wishing tree at a wedding too! Congratulations to the bride and groom.
