A Wedding at Wavering Place Where The Bride Wore Neon Boots

You Won’t Believe the Stunning Fashion and Florals at this Wavering Place Wedding!

I’m so excited to share Priscilla & Hugh’s Wavering Place wedding! Their magical day was filled with incredible florals, fabulous fashion, and a few unexpected twists that added some spice to the celebration (-;

From the moment we laid eyes on Priscilla & Hugh’s wedding, we knew it was going to be one for the books, but wait until you hear about Priscilla’s fashion choices—the clear neon light boots she rocked on the dance floor were an absolute showstopper! (But for real, Priscilla, where can I get those boots at?)

Adding a Sentimental Touch: Priscilla’s Childhood Home and Furry Friends at Wavering Place Wedding

Before the ceremony, Priscilla & her bridesmaids got ready at her childhood home, which added an extra layer of meaning to the day. And I can’t leave out all the adorable dogs who couldn’t resist joining in on the fun! So many dogs were roaming around, wagging their tails, and adding even more happiness to the occasion!

Let’s talk about the gorgeous wedding invitations though. Priscilla’s talented sister took charge of the design, creating a masterpiece that set the tone for the entire event!

An Unexpected Twist: A Traffic Jam and a Change of Plans

Now, hold on tight, because Jay & I had a wild ride on our way to the venue: a near head-on collision with a swerving semi truck! Thankfully, Jay managed to dodge the chaos (in his 4 day old brand new car), but it threw a bit of a curveball into our plans. The resulting traffic jam caused a delay in the First Look, leaving poor Hugh caught up in the hustle and bustle! But hey, we’re flexible and quick on our feet. We shifted gears and decided to photograph Priscilla & her bridesmaids while we waited. Talk about making the best of a crazy situation!

Capturing Intimate Moments: The Heartfelt First Look and Cozy Getaway at Priscilla & Hugh’s Wavering Place Wedding

We sat down with Priscilla & Hugh to get the inside scoop on their wedding day, and they shared some fantastic insights. The morning was filled with excitement, and the most special moments were the intimate ones they shared together—like their heartfelt first look, a private dinner, and the cozy drive home in their getaway car. They emphasized the importance of those moments, as they allowed them to truly soak in the joy of the day.

Splurging on What Matters: The Tent, Band, and Stunning Florals at Priscilla & Hugh’s Wavering Place Wedding

Priscilla & Hugh didn’t hold back when it came to splurging on what mattered most to them—the tent, the band, and the stunning florals. As for saving money, they ditched the idea of welcome boxes, realizing that guests tend to toss away the contents anyway. Smart move!

Their wedding day was truly a reflection of their unique personalities. Adding napkins featuring their beloved dog was just one of the personalized touches that made the celebration feel perfectly “them.” It’s these little details that make a wedding unforgettable and utterly unique! Having experienced the joy of my own wedding at a traditional venue, I can appreciate the appeal of tipi hire. You see, a tipi offers a magical blend of the traditional and the unconventional, providing an extraordinary setting that can’t be matched by any conventional venue. I strongly suggest you consider for a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

And Hugh, being the selective sweet tooth that he is, insisted on only one thing—the cheesecake from Ally and Eloise. So, instead of a traditional cake, they cut into a scrumptious cheesecake, a little detail that truly showcased their personalities and made the celebration feel oh-so-them!

If there’s one piece of advice Priscilla & Hugh would give to other couples planning their wedding, it would be this: conserve your energy and delegate tasks in the weeks leading up to the big day. The chaos can be overwhelming, but when the wedding day arrives, your only job is to be present and soak in every precious moment. It’s a whirlwind, but take those opportunities to steal quiet moments together.

Working with Priscilla & Hugh was an absolute delight. They appreciated how comfortable we made them feel throughout the entire process. They said that our clear directions allowed them to relax and trust our expertise, resulting in natural and intimate shots that truly captured their love. It never felt like a photoshoot; it felt like a stroll with two people head over heels for each other.

We want to give a special shout-out to the talented vendors who brought this wedding to life. Meagan Warren Events orchestrated the day flawlessly, Wavering Place provided the perfect backdrop, and I Love This Band kept the dance floor alive. The delectable desserts from Ally & Eloise satisfied everyone’s sweet tooth, and Southern Way Catering ensured everyone left with happy taste buds. Fern Studio‘s incredible florals added a touch of magic, and Pout & Process worked their hair and makeup magic. Crisp Rentals provided the elegant rentals, while Nikki Morgan Videography captured every unforgettable moment on film.
