Rach Parcell’s Home

Rach Parcell, blogger of  Pink Peonies, recently built her dream home and I am in love with everything about it! I wanted to share with you some of my favorite photos of her house taken from her Instagram page.

This is my dream kitchen…and yes after looking at marble counters in kitchens over and over there is simply NO comparison!  I would be so disappointed if I did not go with marble, so I am finally making a decision… marble it will be!! I am so excited to finally have that behind me!

Love the carrera marble subway tiles and the brass hardware…

Hattiesburg Wedding Recap: The Venue at the Bakery Building

Last weekends wedding turned out great and I was very pleased with everything.  It started raining just before it was time for the bride and groom’s first look photos which were supposed to take place outside in downtown Hattiesburg.  The rain would put a damper on a lot of brides wedding day, but not for Claire!  She made the best of it and decided they would have their first look inside The Venue.  After their first look the rain did finally stop and they were able to proceed with the wedding party photos outside as planned.

Love this shot by April and Paul

Here are a few photos I took on my Iphone…

The reception was held at The Venue at the Bakery Building in Hattiesburg.  It was our first time working this venue, but I doubt it will be our last.  It is an old warehouse with exposed brick walls, which makes the perfect backdrop for weddings!

After the reception ended I got a sweet text from Claire, the bride…
“I have not words.  Tonight was all and more than I ever could have dreamed of.  Thank you thank you thank you.  You made tonight so much fun for me.  I appreciate you and the SP team!  What rockstars!  Thank you-off to St. Lucia we go!”

Loved the simplicity of her wedding cake by Cakes by Kerrin

The Beginning of Our New Home

We are slowly making progress on the start of our new home!  It seems to be getting off to a very slow start, but I hear that is how it seems to go.  They are supposed to start roughing in our plumbing this week and then it’s time for the slab to be poured.

The beginning…

We have a house pad…and the building permit is finally going up (after sitting in my car for a couple of months…woops)

I can get a pretty good idea of how it will look once the slab is poured with the dirt all packed in above and it does appear to look too small, but I made my mind up from the beginning to not worry about it.  I was told from many people that once the slab is poured I was going to freak out and think the house was way too small and would not be able to picture how everything would fit into it.  I am so glad I was warned about this so I can avoid any melt downs from the get go!

I would have to say, so far it has been pretty much stress free.  I know that may change, but I really feel like this is going to be a fun process for us.  I have enjoyed designing our home thus far and can’t wait to see it all come together.  I feel like we will be a rare exception to the norm and will actually enjoy the construction process, but stay tuned and I hope I am not eating my words in a few months…

Grateful Friday Morning

Today is a rare Friday morning for me…sitting in my office working on the many weddings we are excited to be a part of!  I never could have imagined how much my business would grow over the past few months and I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of so many wonderful weddings.  Thank you to each and every one of my brides, grooms and their families for trusting Southern Productions with your special day.  You only get once chance to get it right on a wedding and I am so proud that I have a great team of ladies that will do whatever it takes with me to get the job done.

Since we are getting so many inquiries about weddings on dates we are already booked I am excited to say that we have added on planners/directors to our team which will allow us to book more than one wedding per day!  I am so blessed to be doing what I love and want to thank each and every one of you for trusting us with your wedding day!

Another reason this Friday is rare is because I decided to take the afternoon off to head to the paint store to pick out paint colors for my house!  Although I want whites, light grays and neutral colors I know this is not going to be an easy task as there are soooo many shades of white!
