Becca and Pat’s Summer Merrimon Wynne Wedding

November 19, 2017

Becca and Pat

Becca and Pat were married this past August and we are just in love with their wedding day details and the emotion captured by our friend, Ginny Corbett.  We had the huge honor of planning Becca’s older sister’s wedding back in 2011 and were anxiously awaiting the opportunity to work with this caring, funny, and genuinely kind family again!  They are the salt of the earth and planning this wedding made for meetings full of laughter and joy with the entire group!

Becca and Pat are clearly a perfect match for each other and are destined for a lifetime of happiness.  On their wedding day, they were surrounded by their friends and family who spoke of their deep love for each other and celebrated them with an energy that was contagiously happy.  Our favorite part of the day was the surprise donut wall that Becca made (go Becca!) for Pat!  Pat loves donuts and is always asking if Becca wants to stop for a “quick donut” so this was such a fun personal touch to surprise him with that night! 

Here are a few of our favorite images below..thank you Becca for this sweet review!!

“I cannot say enough good things about A Southern Soiree. We worked with Megan mainly with help from Gina and both of them were truly such a joy and made the whole process of planning a wedding easy, fun, and stress free. I came in with a lot of ideas about what I didn’t want my wedding to be but very few clear thoughts on what I wanted the event to actually look like. Megan coached us through everything, asking questions about what we’ve liked about other weddings and getting a feel for who we were and what we wanted the day to be about, and she gave us the guidance we needed to make informed decisions based on those initial conversations. She also gave great advice and delicately let us know when something we suggested might not fit with what we were actually going for, which we absolutely needed and are so grateful for. She kept us on track and excited for the big day, keeping things in perspective for us throughout. She even threw in napkins with fun facts about us as a couple as a surprise, which was so thoughtful!

A Southern Soiree is a unique business that really does focus on the individual client and what will make them happy with their event, as opposed to pushing them in the direction that is the trendiest or most common. Megan and Gina took the time to get to know me and my family so that they could make sure that they gave the advice and guidance that would make our wedding truly ours.

TLDR – You can’t go wrong with A Southern Soiree – they are amazing, worth every penny, and provide a personalized, fun experience to their clients.”
