The Whipps : Erin + Charley

September 16, 2014  |  Southern Fete News

On April 29, 2014, I met with Erin and Charley. Why am I making it a point to tell you the exact date? Hang in there.

They were recently engaged and wanting to get married in August. Of course, I assumed that meant August 2015. Wrong. 2014. My heart fluttered a bit but then they added that there wasn’t a specific day, just any day in August that I was available. I’m sorry! Did I just hear that correctly? Yes, they were willing to work around my availability for their wedding. Wedding planners heart made. We hit the ground running, and all of the pieces fell beautifully into place.

Although a bit [insert exaggeration here] humid, Erin + Charley tied the knot a few weeks ago at the ever-beautiful Rip Van Winkle Gardens. Erin and Charley were the most laid back and trusting clients. I’m certain Charley said the best thing a planner can hear. It went a little something like this, “Cooking dinner is more stressful than you’ve made today. Thank you so much!” 🙂

There are so many amazing and touching photos that Hannah Mulligan Photography captured that it has been an act of labor to choose my favorites. But, a girl’s gotta do what she needs to do.

Who doesn’t want to kick off the biggest day of their life with a good cigar and bottle of beer?

I’m obsessed with a navy suit and Root Floral’s bout is a beautiful contrast.

Mr. and Mrs. Whipp. This is why first look’s are amazing!

“Let it go … let it go …” Ok, ok. I’m done. How sweet is it that Charley got Aubrey a gift just like he did her mom?

This picture steals my heart. How gorgeous is Aubrey’s handmade dress? And, Erin’s dress simply could not be more beautiful. That lace!
