Emma and Philip’s Vintage Farm Wedding is oh so pretty in Carolina Blue cotton and lace, especially Emma’s gorgeous lace gown from Modern Trousseau. Beautiful, loosely gathered flowers, including southern classics like Queen Anne’s Lace filled wood crates, antique crocks, milk glass and vintage bottles. Knowing how southerners love their biscuits, Emma and Philip created a favor table of Loveless Cafe Jams accompanied by recipe cards for the bride and groom’s favorite biscuits… so personal and unique.
Emma and Philip grew up in Nashville where they lived less than six minutes apart for most of their lives, but did not meet until a mission trip brought them both to Ecuador after graduating high school. Sparks were an immediate clue of what could be, but their college paths took them in different directions – Emma to Colorado and the Rocky Mountains and Philip to east Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains. Their distance apart didn’t deter a budding romance that lasted through graduation and Emma’s time in Greece to study abroad. Moving back to Nashville, Emma and Philip were finally able to focus on a serious relationship. It is fitting that Philip embraced their love of mountains when organizing a surprise proposal, with help of his best man and a few friends, code-named “Operation Shiny Mountain!” He asked Emma to marry him at the summit of Mt. LeConte, which she says has to be the best proposal of all time. Applause! Enjoy Emma and Philip’s Cedarwood May wedding through these lovely photos by Love is a Big Deal.
