Jennifer and Jason had the fabulous dream of a Summer wedding in the South at the very charming Sonnet House in Leeds Alabama! Complete with burlap and lace and hanging from the barn doors is Jennifer’s beautiful bridal gown from Bella Couture in Mt. Laurel Alabama.
Groom and Groomsmen were dressed in Sand colored suits with these fabulous boutonnieres made of “Billy Balls” and fresh Alabama greenery.
Natural elements from the surrounding areas, we decorated the mantle at the alter area with tree branches, sunflowers fresh greenery and yellow roses. Candles atop tree trunks added height and candlelight glow
Added touches of yellows and greens tied with twine welcomed guests into the house from the porch of The Sonnet House
