This is a great Sign for near the Wedding Ceremony Area. Instead of a Seating Chart or picking Which Side is Proper for the Bride and Groom Guests to Sit on, many Brides and Grooms choose to have signs that remind guests to Pick a Seat, not a Side.

Finding the Perfect Bridesmaid Accessories can be a huge task. The First Step to Finding the Perfect Wedding Accessories for your Bridesmaids is of course to find the Perfect Bridesmaid Dress. Once that's out of the way you can decide on the style of the accessories based on the style of the dress. If the Bridesmaid dress has alot of bling or is sparkly already, it usually looks best to have Diamond or Cubic Zirconium Jewelry or even Realistic Diamond Costume Jewelry to accent the sparkle that already exists in the dress. If it is a more Elegant or Sheer Bridesmaid Dress then perhaps adding in Saltwater Pearl or Freshwater Pearl Jewelry or even Beautiful Fake Pearl Jewelry might be the win. Lastly choose the Wedding Shoes based on the overall look and comfort. Remember that heels can be hard on the feet, especially dependent upon the terrain; however, if heels best complete the Wedding Look You Want then go for what will be best.

So many wonderful photos by Say Bre Photography it has taken me a while to try and narrow them down. Everyone of them was so sweet! I loved this family and being a part of the many memories that made this "perfect day". I will be adding more soon; there are too many special moments to upload them in all in one swoop. Check out the fun the groomsmen had fishing and in the grooms suite playing cards. "Misty Moment of the Day" was watching the tears of joy on Justin's face as Taylor walks down the aisle, she looked so beautiful. Mr. Martin and Taylor surprised all of us with the cutest father daughter dance. As I often say, it's the little moments that make the day memorable. We were honored to be a part of their "Happily Ever Little" wedding.
