The Hightowers :: Paige + Trey

September 7, 2016  |  Southern Fete News

Surely you’ve heard there is always a bump in the road when planning the wedding. I think if you were to ask Paige and Trey if there was a bump – heck even bumps – they’d chuckle and say yes. The planning process wasn’t exactly without its ups and down for these two, but I think their wedding day couldn’t have ended up being any more perfect.

Part of the best part of my job is getting to know my clients. Paige and Trey were in the bridal party for one of our Fall weddings last year and fast forward to their wedding – that couple was part of their wedding. Throughout the planning, we had our fair share of late night meetings (always including sweet treats), conference calls, and emails. While I wasn’t able to be a part of the whole wedding day, I’ve talked with so many of their guests who continue to relive such a fun and memorable day.

Here’s just a few of our favorites from Collin Richie Photography


LOVE this custom invitation suite!



The littles in this wedding couldn’t have been any cuter!


Are these not the cutest and most delicious looking old fashioned cupcakes?


The duck on top of the groom’s cake was carved by Trey’s grandfather. Such a sweet touch!


Oh yes. You’re looking at a life-size alligator sculpture. Filled with the most delicious marinated crab claws your little eyes ever did see!


Where to begin. This may go down as one of the most challenging tasks I’ve been charged with. Building a champs tower with all glass coupes that aren’t the same height. We all held our breath as we set it up, and luckily it stayed just where it needed too. I may still be holding my breath!

Paige and Trey – I loved working with both of you on such a special and meaningful day. You stayed focused on what your big day was truly about and always remembered that in the end, you’d marry your best friend, have some out-of-this-world food, and dancing for days. It certainly didn’t disappoint. I wish you all of the best old fashioneds (cupcakes or Dons) and memories that are to come!
