Style Me Pretty Feature May 4, 2011
Ok y’all, I know it’s been 12 days since our last post and I can already guess what you’re thinking…”Hurry up and post something, we’re getting bored!” Ok, you’re right, but I’m pretty sure you will be happy with this little gem of a wedding. It’s filled with pretty details, an adorable couple, tons candid moments and little tid-bits of descriptions to go along with it. We’ve been saving this wedding for a good old rainy day like today (ok, now it’s turned to snow), so welcome to the wedding of Molly & Caleb!
Usually the more we know a couple and their wedding, the more we feel tied to it. Molly was one of the last weddings we booked for 2010.  Before we met them, Dan and I were debating if we were going to take anymore weddings for 2010 because we were pretty full and we knew the fall was going to be crazy — but then we met them and gosh I’m so glad we did! Caleb had already moved to Houston, Texas so we didn’t meet him until the day of the wedding but Molly was staying with her parents who live right down the street in our neighborhood. Dan and I shot Molly’s bridal session and then she pet sat for us a couple of weekends and just in doing that, we figured out pretty quickly that Molly was one special girl :)
But if we hadn’t known Molly at all going into her wedding, I feel sure we would have realized about 10 mins into it how special it was going to be… and probably would have also known that it was going to be one of our favorite weddings of the year.  Besides it being a perfect late October day (remember the colors, and the perfect crisp 65 degree weather) there were so many touches that made this wedding really sweet and really special. Molly was just such a delight and smiling ear to ear all day… and gosh we just love brides who just smile and giggle all day long!
Molly is the youngest of three sisters and a very sentimental person. She decided to have a morning wedding at 11:00 am to follow in the tradition of her parents and grandparents. Also like her parents, grandparents, sister, aunt and cousins, Molly knew she wanted to get married in her home church, Sequoyah Hills Presbyterian. And, the more she thought about it, the more she just loved the idea of an afternoon reception, where everyone could enjoy the fall afternoon and old and young could participate in all of the festivities.

*Love* this pic of Molly and her sisters. Molly’s sister Casey was full term at the wedding and now mother to a beautiful baby girl! All of the girls in Mollys family since her great-great-grandmother have worn the broach Molly has on her bracelet at their weddings…just a little side note:)

Check out the gorgeous, unique, awesome bouquets by Clay Pots Floral Events.


Here’s a close-up of the bouquet, it was really special! And look at that groom — isn’t he a cutie!?!


Molly had the groomsmen wear ‘Morning Suits’ just as Molly’s parents wore in their wedding. She just loved how old-fashioned they looked. Molly said that when she was a little girl she used to love looking at her parent’s wedding album and memorized certain pictures that she always associated with weddings. Molly brought her parent’s wedding album over to our house and showed it to me before her wedding so that we could copy certain poses in the church to match  —  love that.  In general I love when people let me in on all the details and and backstory, so we know what to look for before we get to a wedding.

Gosh she just makes me :)

Married! Yay!!

Trolly ride over to Maple Grove Inn

Caleb is really into cycling and so they decided to leave the reception on a tandem bicycle — how cute!?! The bike also served as a fun little prop for pictures and motif that they used on their save the dates and candy bags.

This might be my favorite random picture of the whole wedding. :)


The road to Maple Grove Inn is always so great for pictures. 

A few black & whites.
Love that one on the left.

Molly picked out this one for her Christmas card and I love it too!

Moly and Caleb waltzed their first dance — so cute, so fun!!




The cake toppers have been used by all of the girls in Molly’s family since her grandmother.

So fun, I love how the guys are standing!
