Each table had a different penny candy so guests could find their table + we had mini brown bags so they could take some home.  I always loved going to candy stores when I was little + filling my own bag.

We wanted to keep the menu simple + southern.  Zac + I picked out some of out favorites including deviled eggs, watermelon mint julep fruit skewers, cucumber tea sandwiches, heirloom tomato salad, chicken + dumplins, beef tenderloin filet, lima beans, mac + cheese and cornbread.

Our wedding cake was traditional white cake with butter cream icing, but between the layers we had lemon + raspberry filling.  It was decorated with fondant vintage buttons + lace.  Instead of a groom's cake, we opted for a dessert bar with assorted mini cupcakes, mini pecan pies (Zac's favorite), mini blackberry cobblers (my favorite) and mini cinnamon sugar doughnuts.

I wish I could go back + experience it all again.  It was the best night ever.  Looking back, it feels like it was a dream.

We spent the night at The River Inn of Harbor Town in the Grand Suite overlooking the Mississippi River.  I remember looking out the window at the rain thinking how magical the night was + being so happy that the rain came once the night was coming to an end.  The day was perfect + I couldn't have asked for anything more.  Thank you to everyone who made it so special + to my husband who I will cherish for the rest of my life.
