Seven years ago today we were five days away from celebrating our first wedding anniversary... and I became a mama. Our sweet Addison Scott was born at 12:48pm forever changing my heart. I am sharing the brief history of The Southeastern Bride (which kind of picks up when Addi was born) on the blog today, including a look at what the future holds.

Thank you @letterandknotco for this lovely share. There is so much beauty in handmade! #featureityall
Pretty is as pretty does and a Peggy McKinney cake is just that! We’re loving the clean, classic and understated style our clients’ designs have lent themselves to lately. A favorite, for sure! Photo by @mary_margaret_smith.
Who loves pretty packaging? 🙋🏻 Every package big or small that comes from our studio is filled with love! Here's a little process video of me wrapping our calendar orders. 2018 is just around the corner so grab your calendar now from our Etsy shop littlecarabaostudio.etsy.com -> link in bio 📆
A serene setting with an unassuming grandeur. It’s amazing what nature brings to a reception setting. Rebecca and Drew’s fall wedding is coming to @caratsandcake soon! Photo: @annashackleford
Somehow yesterday I spent a very large portion of the day going through images from the past year, both from the farm + weddings we designed for. And I even forgot to eat lunch (which is rare!). But with shots like this one from @fetephotography you can’t really blame me. I’d love to know what systems or tips you have for organizing your photos?
Got to team up with some amazing people on this styled wedding shoot. Nadia & Pierce are newlyweds and perfectly in love. I can’t wait to share this set! 🖤

Sunday’s are for staying home and cuddling with all the puppies. But when you’re sick, like I am 😫, it’s an essential! As lay in bed covered in pups, I think of this magical place. The beach, the Spanish moss, and the wild horses...yes please! I’ll be dreaming of this all day but in the meantime anyone have any good suggestions for a quick recovery from bad food? It’s the worst...ever! #sickday
Can’t wait for more hot coco, cookie making and chicken foot! What’s your favorite tradition!?! || also counting down the days for when my love comes home for C h r i s t m a s || 🎄💍❄️
We love taking vibrant colors and creating a classy look. This design is one we’ve used for multiple head table designs. Take a beautiful linen, match the perfect china and napkins, introduce the perfect palette, and incorporate decor to finish the look. •
We love using geometric pieces to give a unique look. You can use the same pieces multiple times, yet make them look fresh and new by how you incorporate them in the design. They can be a part of the centerpiece, be placed as decor on the table, or hung from the ceiling to provide depth. You can also do all three 😂
💃 Shooting for @branchesweddingco.
Counting down the days 📅 until I'm back in snowy #newyorkcity for my final round to receive an official title of @wellahair Master Colorist. 📷 : @bbsinghphotos
Its crazy that 1 year ago today, we were celebrating the #idos of this gorgeous couple @whiteoaksdahlonega ...which was so special to us, since #dahlonega was also our honeymoon town years ago! Happy 1 year to Katie & Eddie Matthews! May you always take time to dance together! ❤
It's wedding day for these two and I'm super excited!! It's also my last wedding of the year and I'm certain it's gonna be a great one!
Since my solo venture began, I haven’t had the opportunity to closely help any friends in their engagements or weddings. That is until Friday night. I feel privileged to have helped Brian propose to his girlfriend Jessica, my dear friend. As they met on the Mississippi River through work, it only felt fitting they get engaged on the mighty Mississippi. The observation deck at the Omni, with the violin playing “I can’t help falling in love with you” and Jessica saying when seeing Brian on one knee, “It’s happening!” These are some of my favorite shots from that night courtesy of my friend @diaznolaphoto. And yes, I didn’t plan my exit well so I was in the corner during the whole thing. Congrats to you both! I love you both so much!
Yesterday's wedding was the grande finale to my 2017 wedding season! I laughed way too hard, got way too close to crying (happy tears, of course), and made so many new friends. I officially met Adair and Austin on Thursday and we bonded immediately. Within minutes we were talking about all of the inappropriate topics that (we all know) I love so much. I couldn't have dreamed of a better couple to end my 2017 year with. To the new Mr. & Mrs., THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
We love seeing our giddy brides and their new hubby on their wedding day!
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas. @denhamsflorist
We were honored to cater the JSTEWxITF event last week at @thenewgallery to support @inspirethefire. A special event for a special cause. Here are some of our favorite images from bites served and enjoyed: Smoked Chicken Tacos with Ginger Slaw and Fresh Lime, Southern Pickled Shrimp, and Fried Tortellini with Short Rib.
when you are done with weddings for 2017 it is time to celebrate by being a tourist all day in downtown #savannah on this gorgeous December day... first stop brunch with friends & mimosas!! 🙌🏼🥂
what are some of your favorite #savannah restaurants & shops?!?!

What a beautiful bar designed by our couple and the stunning wood bars were hand crafted by the bride and groom as well - such beautiful craftsmanship and the "cheers" sign was the icing on the cake suspended between them.
Well I guess we can officially say, this is our last wedding cake for 2017.... and it was actually by accident.... On Friday at 3:00 pm we received a phone call from couple in a panic. (Side note: At this point we are almost done at the bakery and will call it an early day! Which never occurs on a Friday EVER).They said they bought a wedding cake from New Orleans, La and drove it to Sunset, Louisiana. The cake was assembled as a 8”-10”-12” which feeds 118 people from the cake lady in Nola. The cake was covered in fondant and had the flowers on top.
So the phone call.....Like we said earlier the cake came New Orleans as a three tier but by the time they got to us, it was barley a two tier. The couple informed us they paid $250.00 for a three tier cake feeding 118 people. They got a GREAT DEAL on the cake but ended up being a disaster later and actually costing them more money after it was all said and done.
We did our best with what we had to work with. The couple didn’t have the budget to pay for us to bake more cake and reassemble the cake. So we used the cake the brought in and added a top tier. We also did buttercream because of time and budget.
Moral of the story, do your research in your baker and make sure they know how to assemble your cake properly for a two hour drive. And remember... you get what you pay for.
We wish the couple a happy and life long marriage! In the future, with their grandchildren they will be laughing at that day and the day their wedding cake fell over!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Years! #pieceofcakelafayette#pieceofcake#numberonebakerylafayettelouisiana#southern#numberone#cake#birthday#birthdaycake#edible#buttercream#fondant#buttercreamcake#fondantcake#louisiana#lafayettelouisiana#lafayettela#numberonebakerylafayettelouisiana#bakery#babyshower#baby#wedding#groomscake#weddingcake#weddinggrooms#louisianawedding#southernwedding#southernstyle
Something I love to do whether I’m photographing your engagement session or your wedding, I love to get a good “mini dance sesh” in there somewhere. I love the fun and the laughter it brings. I like to catch the movement, the emotions, and the smiles. I love watching y’all have a good time❤️
Hey, I saved you a seat 👋🏼 ⠀⠀
are you debating on whether you should have place cards or not? It's a pretty common question I get asked, and the answer really depends on the type of event you're looking to create...⠀⠀
Are you hoping to create an atmosphere where people feel as if you saved a seat, just for them? ✅ ⠀⠀
Are you looking to create a very intentional arrangement of your guests throughout the room? ✅ ⠀⠀
Are you hoping your guests will feel as if they've got their own little space to themselves? ✅ ⠀⠀
If you've got three ✅ ✅ ✅, I think you've got some place cards in your near future 😉 #intentionaldesign ⠀⠀
