Stacey and Brian's September Wedding: Honey and Rainbows

When Stacey Murray and Brian Shamus tied the knot on September 13, 2014, it was almost like a family wedding for us. Stacey is a hostess for Lenora's Legacy and it was so wonderful to know her as she and Brian met, dated, and planned their wedding. After seeing so many weddings, Stacey definitely knew how to plan her own wedding! And the result was a beautiful, warm celebration filled with love, honey, and even a double rainbow!

The bluegrass band entertained as the guests arrived and just after the ceremony.

Stacey's bridesmaids looked incredibly chic in their knee length navy dresses. I love how each one chose a different dress in the same shade of blue.

The gazebo provided an elegant, intimate location for the ceremony with guests of about 100. It suited their classic, elegant wedding perfectly.

The couple chose Smoke on the Water of Greenville as their caterer. Their food is simply delicious and is enjoyed by many at their downtown restaurant.

Stacey had elegant place settings of all glass dinnerware. The hanging ferns in the Peach Shed brought the outside greenery into the dining area.

Buttercream, garden roses, ranunculus, and dahlias - this cake reminded me of why the simplest designs are often the most beautiful.

Stacey is a beekeeper and had the fantastic idea of small gifts of her jars of honey for the guests. The country store porch was an appropriate spot, since my grandfather once kept bees near the store.

We loved the two cupids with the rose petals--just in the right spot for showering good wishes on their departure later that evening. 

A double rainbow appeared in the sky just as the reception began. It was the perfect symbol of hope for the start of Stacey and Brian's future together. The reception was full of great food, great fun, and lots of dancing; all in all, the perfect ending to a perfect wedding!
