Can you feel the Southern elegance in this wedding? Tiffany and Lander said their vows outside a historic mansion in Virginia last June. Swoon with me if you will over the old brick paths, Tiffany's fantastic lace dress, and the soft pastel colors everywhere. I'm also really loving that they gave their guests honey as favors. Look at the cuteness of those tiny glass jars! With bee ornaments!

Speaking of cute… Tiffany and Landers' 18-month-old daughter stole the show for me. Not gonna lie, her little flower crown and her funny faces are top notch.

  1. omigosh – how perfect is this wedding?! I love yellow and white together – the honey as a gift is too perfect for the "theme" (plus think of all the bee puns people where having fun with!). I also think that the wedding party look ridiculously happy and handsome – great pictures!

  2. Awwww. So beautiful! So handsome! And those honey jars are (wait for it…) so sweet! The yellow is so bright and cheery!

  3. Oh my goodness, this wedding is so gorgeous! Love the venue, the colors, the favors, the dresses… really everything!

  4. Everything about this is just dreamy. It actually is so lovely it made my eyes tear up just a little bit! 🙂
