Hi everyone! Long time, no blog :) How are you? I wanted the opportunity to share with you some of my wedding photos since my “Say Yes to The Dress” will be airing on October 17th at 9PM EST.
A lot of you saw some of the pictures that my friend Jennifer and I posted throughout the week, but I wanted to give you a closer look at all the action.
Since so many of our friends and family were coming in from out of town, we wanted to make sure it was worth the travel to our small mountain town. We kicked off our wedding weekend on Thursday night with a cocktail party ... Continue Reading

Hi everyone! It's so good to catch up with you from the whirlwind that was our wedding weekend up to right now where I am packing for our honeymoon. I'll write a more detailed blog later, but I just wanted to say thank you all for joining us on our big day and your kind words. Everything about the weekend was just perfect.
From the cocktail party on Thursday, the bridesmaid luncheon and rehearsal dinner on Friday, to the actual day was just so spectacular. When I walked down the aisle I couldn't wait to get to Aaron. I was so anxious to start my life with him... And so far... Continue Reading

It’s 2:30 in the afternoon on Friday September 12th. I can’t help but think that this time next week I will be with my best friends and family getting a mani/pedi, talking about the Rehearsal Dinner complete with DJ, southern food, and funny stories. I’m counting down the minutes.
I can’t believe my wedding is just one week away. It’s weird to even type that out. It’s crazy to think that almost a year ago I wasn’t sure that I was going to be engaged anytime soon. Now it’s full on crunch time t... Continue Reading

The big day is quickly approaching & I'm working on getting my hair, skin & nails in tip top shape :)
Twice a week I have been using Dr. Gross' facial steamer to help get my skin in tip top shape. It opens up my pores so that I can take the bad stuff out and get some of the good in. Check out tips from Dr. Gross on how to do an at-home facial --> Dr. Gross Tips
Next I use my Clarisonic with TATCHA to help restore moisture and get rid of the dirt and oil.
I follow up with Dr. Gross Glow Pads to get radiance and a hint of color. I finish my am routine with... Continue Reading

When my producer and friend, Venita, told me we might have the opportunity to partner with Southern Living for Courtney Says I do… I needed to sit down. Where I come from Southern Living Magazine was right next to the bible. I mean seriously, there was a bible on the nightstand table and right next to that, for a little light reading was the book that guided the way to becoming the envy of all friends and family when it came to mastering the techniques of southern charm.
Wherever you are, Southern Living takes you to your happy place. In fact my mother used to get so happy reading her ... Continue Reading

When I was a little girl for some reason I had always imagined my Bridal Shower would be in my Mom’s hair salon. Which is odd if you think about a 5-10 year old girl 1) even thinking about a bridal shower and 2) why on earth would she want to have it there?! I imagined that we would all be wearing long dresses, hats, only sipping on iced tea, getting our hair done and opening presents. Sounds a little old school southern right? I promise I never watched Steel Mag... Continue Reading

Without further introduction, meet my best friends, my soul mates, and the girls I can’t live without…
Maid of Honor- Ashley
Ashley and I met in our sorority AOPi at the University of Mississippi. Basically it was love at first sight. If you’re ever in a room… it’s easy to spot Ashley. Basically she is shortest one there and she’s having the most fun. She is the serious one of the group. Seriously funny that is. She is so incredibly funny it could sometimes be hard to believe that she was nothing short of brilliant. ... Continue Reading

I have to brag on Aaron. He’s one of the hardest working people I know both at work and at home. Sometimes when I hear him on conference calls or holding meetings over the phone I’m always amazed at how strong his character is … but then sometimes I listen in and think to myself “what in the world are they talking about?!”
Aaron is a real estate banker in Philadelphia and... Continue Reading

I am so very happy that cupcakes have made this incredible resurgence into society. It seems like in every major city, on any given corner, an abundance of cupcakes can be found. Whether it’s a sweet pick-me-up or a special occasion, I am finding out that there are more to cupcakes than just a pretty face!
I guess it was back in February I started thinking about the cake for our wedding. Did we want something traditional, out of the box, or just down right too pretty to eat?! These were all good questions. The good news is that in today’s market you can hav... Continue Reading
