Scott and Bekah

Bekah and Scott's wedding was in April at the Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation in Huntsville - one of the prettiest venues we've ever had the pleasure of working with!!  As you look through the pictures, taken by the ohhhh-so-talented Erin Lindsey, you'll see why this on one of our favorite venues to work!

Bekah's bouquet goes down in Simpson's history as my personal favorite.  I LOVE the colors and varieties of flowers that we used to create all the different textures.  I can't picture Bekah carrying anything other than a bouquet that is as vibrant as she is!!  We used so many different flowers in this!  You'll find coral peonies, coral roses, yellow freesia, crespedia, orange spray roses, creamy yellow roses, orange tulips and flat fern.  

 Bekah's bridesmaids carried bouquets of hydrangea, creamy yellow roses, orange spray roses, hypericum, and a few strategically placed flat fern.

Bride and groom's rings with the flowers.  LOVE this!!

On the shepherd's hooks throughout the plantation, we made simple arrangements of mason jars, wrapped in linen burlap with a sprig of babysbreath and creamy yellow hydrangea

Do you see why this is a favorite??  You really can't ask for anything prettier than this right here!!  Each table features teal table linens under a teal terrarium style vase with bubbles hand blown into each one.  Each vase was placed on mirrors and surrounded by mercury glass votive cups.

The Head table was sooooo gorgeous!!  We created bouquets to mimic the bridal bouquets, but added more of the cream hydrangea to pull the hydrangea theme through the whole reception.  Then, we lined each table with more of the mercury glass votive cups.  

This gorgeous cake was created by the talented bakers at Harley's!!  We saved the prettiest peony for the top!   

Congratulations Bekah and Scott!!  Thank you so much for letting Simpson's be a part of your wedding day!  We loved every second of it!!

Emily Nesbitt Wedding

This beautiful bride is Mrs. Emily Nesbitt Lincicum.  She was married at Belle Mina United Methodist Church in 2013.  She used colors of greens and corals with lots of succulents, peonies, roses, ranunculus, baby's breath, queen ann's lace, hydrangeas, and seeded eucalyptus.  

Photography from here up, provided by Allabella Studios.  Thank you soooooo much for allowing us to publish your work on our blog!!  

One of the most beautiful little chapels we have ever had the pleasure of decorating, and probably one of the oldest as well.  This church as such history and the pastor marrying the couple told me all about it as we decorated.  If you are looking for the perfect little chapel to get married in, check out Belle Mina United Methodist Church!

So, if you notice that list of vendors, you'll quickly realize Sarah Beth and I pretty much got to work with the dream team of the North Alabama wedding industry.  Creating something beautiful, southern, and "Alabama" really wasn't that much of a challenge for this group!  We were all pretty much on the same page from the start.  It was an amazing experience and we were THRILLED to be published in Southern Brides Magazine!!!!  Southern Bride's created a contest inspired by our home state.  Here is what we created, hope you enjoy!  Feel free to share your thoughts!

These bouquets were created using different flowers and foliage and most (not quite all) can be found growing throughout the different areas of Alabama.  We used seeded eucalyptus, hydrangeas, veronica, helleborus, privett berries, calla lilies, different varieties of fern, succulents, blue eryngium, dusty miller, and of course, blackberries!!  

 Of course, you can't have a southern brunch wedding with out a Bellini Bar!  Cheers!!
I can't tell ya'll how AMAZING Ashley's omelet bar was!  This was one of the cutest display (except for the biscuit making station) I've ever seen!!

Hog Wild Biscuit Bar!

So here was MY favorite part - creating the tablescape with flowers and foliage.  We used lots of pine and elaeagnus cut from my own yard and mixed with all the same flowers found in the bridal party bouquets.  We wanted to create something Southern and inviting that makes you want to stay a while!

And the cake ya'll... it was divine!!  If you've never had the pleasure of tasting (eating, devouring, and obsessing over) one of Michelle's cakes, then you are missing out.  And don't even get me started on her pies.   Seriously. Don't. Even

We had such a fun time creating this with our new friends!!  It was a great way to blow off some steam by relaxing with some friends, just getting to create as inspiration struck... and taking advantage of the Bellini Bar sure didn't hurt!!  Make sure to check out Seth's awesome videography!!
