Happy Friday everyone! It has been a crazy busy week around here. In the next 4 months we have 9 weddings and 2 baby showers so we are busy, busy, busy and loving every minute of it.  Now on to the reason you are all here today. The Laurels!

Last week we shared some of our planning with you and this week I will give you sneak peek into the vision we have for The Laurels.  This past December we headed east to Louisiana and toured lots of beautiful homes to see if we could find some inspiration. One thing we knew was that whatever we decided on we wanted it to have a distinctly southern feel.  We looked at everything from quant houses to grand mansions and loved all of it! You know what they say about when you find it you will know it, that statement has never been more true than when I stepped foot on Rosedown Plantation.  Amazing!  I remember chasing The Boss around the grounds in the freezing cold and looking up and then looking at Kathy and we both new, this is it! We found our inspiration!

From the tall columns and beautifully turned balustrades to wide porches and massive moss-covered trees we knew this was it.  Now Rosedown is massive so whatever designs we come up with for The Laurels will be scaled back considerably but at least this will give you an idea of what we have planned and what is coming your way! I know it will be a long process and it seems like spring 2013 is a long way away but I have no doubt it will be here before we know it.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and don’t forget to head over to The Holiday Inn on Walden on Sunday for their Bridal Event. It will feature fabulous vendors from all over the Golden Triangle.
