a tiny little change

Keith and I have been engaged for almost three months now and when it comes to planning the wedding, we are moving at a snail’s pace. It’s not like we haven’t visited venue sites, tasted cakes, or picked out invitations. We have. We just haven’t actually booked anything yet. It’s not like we don’t want to, we would just rather watch all the seasons of Grey’s Anatomy instead. =) In addition to the non wedding planning, I recently found out that two of my dear friends (and bridesmaids!!!) would not be able to make it to Charleston for my big day. Things were not looking good, but things are about to change.

The title of this blog is “a tiny little change”, but I think I may have been a bit modest. The change involves my theme, colors, flowers, food, venue, and location. I would say that we are starting from scratch, but since we technically have nothing done we are not backtracking. The change is this:

We are getting married in New Orleans, Louisiana at Southern Oaks Plantation!




I know this seems sudden, but we have decided that having our wedding in Louisiana would be the best option. After we’re married we plan on having a reception in Charleston for all of our friends and family who will not be able to attend the wedding. I am truly so excited about this! I have filmed so many weddings at Southern Oaks and have always thought if I were to get married in Louisiana that it would definitely be at this beautiful, amazing, antebellum plantation!
Since making this decision we have scaled down our to-do list by a ton. Southern Oaks is not just gorgeous, but they are extremely helpful. They will be taking care of the food, drinks, decorations, floral arrangements, centerpieces, the D.J., and much more! We literally only have a handful of things left to reserve! Woop Woop! I am so thankful that I will be marrying my incredible fiancé at a place that is so enchanted. And who knows…I may even show up to the ceremony in this:
