Annelise + Danny Blount
Happy First Anniversary, Annelise and Danny! Today is the perfect morning to grab a cup of coffee and relive your wedding day with all the special details!
It was important to Annelise that her parents house be a special part of the day, so Annelise and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready to her childhood home before her and Danny shared their first look on the front lawn. The girls were scheduled for hair by Lauren Brown and Alayna Ford and makeup by the Tracy Branch Agency, all while enjoying laughs and memories over breakfast and coffee. The house was in full swing when Martha Grace Gray Photography arrived to catch the final details of the bride getting ready. The Pink Poppy Shed created an arch over the door, full of hydrangeas, greenery, and accented with white pumpkins, making the perfect background for the bride and groom's first look.
The ceremony took place at Park Place Baptist Church, which was watercolored by Bailey Poole on the front of the wedding programs. The bride walked down the aisle with her father on her arm, holding a bouquet full of lilies, hydrangeas, white and light peach garden roses, peach hypericum berries, and seeded eucalyptus, created by The Pink Poppy Shed. Annelise wore a stunning a-line lace dress with a beaded belt and cap sleeves and her bridesmaids donned a teal, one-shoulder chiffon dress, both from Imaginations Bridal. The arch and drapery in the church, by Fresh Cut Floral, accented the altar along with candles creating a romantic feel. The ceremony music was played by Tommy Creel, Betsy Robbins, and GiGi Creel.
The new Mr. and Mrs. Blount headed to the reception at The Ivy Venue in a large party bus provided by LeFleur Limousine. Guests walked into the reception and were instantly greeted by gorgeous florals and food by Fresh Cut Catering and Floral, teal up-lights and texture on the walls by Davaine Lighting, and soft music. The wedding party was introduced before the newlyweds walked under a replica "Walk of Champions" from Magnolia Rentals and shared their first dance. Shortly after, they cut their cakes and were ready to dance the night away. The bride's cake had ornate details and a monogram B, while the grooms cake was chocolate with an Ole Miss theme, both made by That Special Touch. The grooms table was decorated with all things Ole Miss and even had personalized Coca Colas with the couples name on them.
Annelise and Danny got a big surprise when Colonel Reb met them on the dance floor and Solid Steele Sounds Entertainment turned up the music to get everyone on the dance floor!
One of our favorite details from this wedding was the bride's "Something Blue", which was cartons of Blue Bottle Coffee from Blue Bottle Coffee in New York. The guests left with favors of Annelise and Danny's favorite things - bottled cokes, moon pies, and chocolate bars. Family and friends lined up outside with sparkers as they sent the bride and groom off to their honeymoon!
We enjoyed Stellabrating with this sweet family a year ago and wish Annelise and Danny many more memories! Take a look at some of the highlights from their big day by Martha Grace Gray Photography.
