Here is some more photos of Casey & Matt’s wedding at McConnell House. There are so many unique locations inside and outside of McConnell House to take photos. Some of our favorite spots are in front of the wallpaper, under the brick arch and on the front porch pew.
We love the elegant yet comfortable feel of Casey & Matt’s fall wedding reception at McConnell House.
Here’s a littler blurb from Casey:
“I’m a girl who gets overwhelmed with too many options and choosing McConnell House made other decisions so much easier, especially with less of them to make and less decor needed with such an already fabulous place! To anyone planning a wedding, I say be true to yourself and don’t let the “etiquette” totally get in your way. I admit that it helped that our parents were great about not enforcing old school rules and supporting our decisions. My husband and his groomsmen wore trendy jeans and my girls wore gray dresses of their choice. Having our friends be comfortable and feel good about themselves was important to us and in the end, I think it made for a better atmosphere. Everything about our wedding was totally us – there were moments that were traditional and there were ones that were totally casual and fun. Our wedding was everything we loved and that made our guests love it too. My husband’s uncle stood on the edge of the dance floor the entire evening just taking it in (I should note that my husband only left the dance floor to grab a drink or potty the entire night….I wasn’t sure I married the man I had known with all the dancing skills he showed off!). His uncle later told us that he just really enjoyed seeing so many people having a genuinely good time. And, that’s what I recommend. Make it genuine and make it you and have a blast!!”
Let’s start with some of the detail shots of the reception and the girls getting ready in the bridal suite.
Bringing the excitement of toasting a marshmallow by the campfire inside to your event. Red Pony Catering offers a S’more Bar where guests can burn or lightly toast marshmallows for a s’more. House made marshmallows & graham crackers, white chocolate and dark chocolate make for a finger licking treat that leaves you asking for s’more.
A Southern Biscuit & Cornbread Bar, featured on Style me Pretty, is a great addition to your catering menu. Pair the flaky biscuits and toppings with other food stations, passed appetizers, late night snack after a seated dinner or part of brunch with our champagne bar. This is a very versatile food option that adds a delicious southern flair to your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, cocktail party or birthday bash.
