No details was left unattended.  Callie made sure everything looked beautiful together.
Not one heart could have been happier.  Paul had found his amazing match!
The day literally was perfect.  Everyone was in attendance.  Callie’s dad gave her away and performed the ceremony where his daughter was vowed to another man for the rest of her life.
The oak tree covered the ceremony in a way of God sheltering His children.  It was magical feeling the presence of the Lord through hymns, words and the amazing breeze that perfectly coasted through the grounds.

Callie and Paul have never looked better.
Their friends and family could not have wanted to be anywhere else.
The smiles, food, toasts and partying on a black and white dancefloor was like a dream.
We love you Callie and Paul.

Some of Callie & Paul’s memories from the day:

Q. What was your favorite part about the wedding?

A. Paul: Marrying Callie!
Callie: Marrying Paul!
But we also loved being surrounded by all the people we love, getting married in a grove of beautiful oak trees, singing worship songs during our ceremony, having an amazing band playing old school music during our reception… we had a blast the whole day!!

Q. What was one quirky of crazy thing that happened on your wedding day?
A. The funniest thing that happened was during our ceremony when my two year old nephew Rhett (one of our ring bearers) walks up to the communion stand, eats most of our communion cracker then walks over to us, looks up and sees Paul, laughs and punches him in the crotch! Little rascal. We were dying laughing. Paul just laughed and held it together well 🙂

Q. What was the most special moment on your wedding day?
A. SO many incredibly special moments… but probably the most special moment for both of us was (during the ceremony) hearing my dad read what Paul and I wrote about each other (about how and why we fell in love with each other). It was hard to hold back the tears 🙂

Q. Did you do anything yourself?
A. Let’s just say I crafted quite a bit the months leading up to the wedding – and we had lots of help!! I painted all the signs (welcome sign, directional signs, etc) throughout the wedding, sewed the “celebrate” and “sweet” banners, collected vases for the tables, embroidered our save-the-date design and a couple other small embroideries, made a huge world map out of fabric we used for our seating chart, fabric scalloped garland that lined the path from the ceremony to the reception, heart pillows that were on our parents’ and grandparents’ seats at the ceremony, painted our table numbers with the help of my mom and Tricia Lowenfield. I had lots of help too!! My mom helped me make and sew our save the dates and she sewed our programs together! My aunt sewed our ring bearers pillows – and made them to look like our invitations, and she used buttons from my great grandmother’s black house dress. And Tricia Lowenfield, a local artist and friend, painted our save-the-date design, painted our guest sign-in poster, painted our program design – and hand wrote everything inside our programs, designed our table numbers… Paula Santagata and friends made our white flower altar backdrop… I could go on… lots of homemade, special goodness!!

Q. What were you the most excited about on your wedding registry?  Did it live up to all the hype?
A. Our mint green & white china… and yes! (to me at least!) And lots of fun dishes from Anthropologie!

Q. Where will you be as a couple in five years? Hopes, dreams, kids, etc.?
A. We hope to be living on mission together for Christ! Having fun adventures and starting a family!

Q. What do you look forward to the most about being married?
A. Doing life together! And not having to say goodbye at night is pretty awesome.
