GAH!!! I LOVE THIS COUPLE!

Every inch of this wedding from Lauren’s timeless style, to the family & friend-filled reception (complete with salted caramel brownies from Amelie’s French Bakery in Charlotte, which they ceremoniously cut in lieu of a cake..MY FAVE!), was swoon-worthy.  Lauren & Nathan traded vows beneath the trees of Asheville, NC, overlooking the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Lauren & Nathan’s family and friends are what made this wedding so full of love and so, so FUN.

One part of Lauren & Nathan’s story that I absolutely adore, is that their first date was breakfast. Am I alone in feeling that breakfast is not only the best, but most romantic meal? Give me eggs (over medium, please) and toast and a warm mug of coffee (or, an espresso, if you’ve got it), over a fancy-pants dinner ANY DAY. I thought it’d be fun to incorporate these cute little signs I bought a while back from YeeHaw Industries, one of my favorite little shops in the heart of downtown Knoxville, TN. They are their own printing press, and makes some of the coolest band posters, and cards, and all things paper (I’m a complete sucker for paper products. Complete. Sucker).

The weather was absolutely perfect for Lauren & Nathan’s wedding- the sun was warm, the night was cool, everyone was on the dance floor (make sure you try your guess at the “What’s That Guy Dancing To?” Challenge to win yourself a Starbucks gift card! Scroll through the post to get more info). Oh, and the campfire was cozy. That’s right. I said campfire (complete with a s’mores station, where Lauren, still in her dress, opted out from dancing for a couple songs just to go make herself some s’mores! Seriously, though. Could she be any cooler of a bride?)

We had such an amazing time celebrating their love with all those they love most, and are absolutely thrilled to be sharing these with you. Enjoy!

(Pssst! Hey, you! Interested in making the Amelie’s Salted Caramel Brownies yourself? Here is the recipe! I made some for my sisters birthday a little while ago, and lemme tell ya, HEAVEN. And, it’s a really simple recipe to follow. Trust me, I don’t have the patience for difficult cooking instructions, ESPECIALLY when I’m craving something sweet. Bon Appetit!)

And now, ladies & gentlemen- I would like to invite you to the first ever “What’s That Guy Dancing To?” Challenge. If you think you know what song he’s dancing to, leave your answer as a comment on this post. First person to get it right gets a Starbucks Gift Card!!! (hint:This is pretty much the most precise interpretive dance, ever. He’s literally acting out every word of a chorus to a song he dances to with his young daughter at home). AND…….GO!
