Last November, in the prettiest little Methodist church in the tiny community of Daleville, Mississippi, two sweethearts said “I do.” Jan and Chase wanted a wedding that was simple, heartfelt, and intimate, and they planned every detail to reflect their thoughtful, creative personalities. The beautiful chapel was understated on the outside, but inside it was a treasure box, full of jewel toned stained glass, golden light, and warm old wood. It was the perfect sacred space for a quiet celebration of their love for one another and their families.
Jonathan and I were so taken with Chase’s attention to his wedding style. When he couldn’t find the vest he wanted for his wedding day, did he settle for something less than perfect? NO. Chase bought himself a pattern, fabric, and buttons, and MADE HIS WEDDING VEST. (You are officially a rockstar groom forever, Chase!)
Even before Jan was completely “made up,” she already looked like a star from Old Hollywood – maybe Maureen O’Hara? Or Hedy Lamarr? In other words, she was lovely.
This elegant vintage style veil completed her look perfectly.
I loved the combination of different textures and colors in Jan’s lush bouquet. It was beautiful from every angle! The creamy roses set off the white calla lilies with the deep purple centers beautifully.
Jan’s dress was refined and elegant with a light, whimsical twist. I loved how the organza cascaded to the floor in soft clouds.
The rich shades of eggplant, soft whites, and formal black tones added a lovely elegance & depth to Jan and Chase’s wedding decor. The jewel-like colors played wonderfully against the warm interior of the old chapel. Little touches of lace accented the sweet details.
As the time for the ceremony neared, family and close friends gathered in the warm, peaceful chapel. The room glowed as light streamed through the old windows into the lovely sacred space. Can you tell I fell in love with this sweet church?
Jan & Chase’s families have been an important part of their lives from the very beginning of their relationship. In fact, Chase’s grandparents were the ones who set them up on their first date! It was wonderful to watch two families coming together to celebrate a love story that they had been a part of from the very beginning.
I loved how Jan’s daddy brought a big umbrella to shield her from Chase’s sight as she walked by the windows!
When we first met Jan and Chase, Chase told us, “It just makes me happy to be around her.” And when he saw her coming down the aisle, he couldn’t stop smiling.
And in the peaceful golden light of a November afternoon, two hearts became one.
Black lace looks so lovely on an elegant wedding cake. ❤
Jan & Chase had a sweet, intimate, candlelit reception. All the guests enjoyed playing “dress up” with the whimsical photo props!
As the sun set on their beautiful November wedding, Jan and Chase left the chapel under a shower of bright sparks and joyful wishes from their family and friends.
Jan & Chase, it made us so happy to be part of your beautiful wedding! We will never forget how the two of you looked at each other, how your families gathered around you with so much love & joy, and we will never forget the lovely little chapel in Daleville where it all happened. Happy first anniversary! ❤
