Handley Breaux Designs | Kelsey & Stewart

There really is something special about working with a couple who you've had the privilege of knowing since elementary school! It was such a special occasion being able to celebrate their marriage among guests who I knew personally. Kelsey had a very specific vision and wonderful taste, so the wedding style came together seamlessly. It was also very important that the day reflect both of their interests and we did just that!

Handley Breaux Designs | Sydni & Trent

With every new group of brides, some end up holding a special place on our hearts. Sydni was definitely one of them! Sydni & Trent were married in late July in Birmingham, and their wedding day held all sorts of beautiful details topped off with a genuine love for each other and excitement for the life they would start together. We got to work with some of our favorite vendors to bring Sydni's vision to life. We've done several events at The Nest in Avondale before, but we mixed it up this time and used it as a space for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready. Y'all know we love some good light, and the space was flooded with it! We hope you love this wedding day as much as we do! Thank you Cathrine Taylor Photography for the amazing photographs.

If you tell us that Deborah Stone and her daughter Alex are doing something new, chances are that we're the first ones to jump on board. We're such fans of this mother daughter duo! When they started the all-natural skin care line Botaniko, it was no different. I, personally, am an addict of their lavender spray. I douse myself in it before I go to sleep almost every night! So in the planning of the pop-up shop for After Hours at the Gardens, I knew that Botaniko had to be a part of it! We know that y'all will be instant fans as well!
