Real Engaged Wedding

Erin & Joe

One of the most common things we tell our brides is this: "If you hire amazing wedding vendors, you will have an amazing wedding." Erin Larson & Joe Horton are living proof of that!! Even with light showers that fell during part of their day (and we can all agree, it looks like glitter is falling from the sky in their photos), all of the thoughtful details of their day came together so beautifully, and we are thrilled to be able to share them with you!!

Erin & Joe said their I do's on May 26, 2018, at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens before heading over to Iron City for an unforgettable night! The ceremony was Erin's favorite part because it was the most meaningful. They created their ceremony outline with their Pastor and added several personal details, stories, and a unity ceremony which made it so special and personalized to them as a couple.

Hire a planner if your budget allows! It made the last month of our engagement, our rehearsal, and the wedding day a breeze! I cannot imagine the stress, confusion, and anxiety that I would have had without her.
