We’ve never stepped inside the thoughtfully curated We Took to the Woods shop, in Greenville, SC but we can tell we’d never want to leave. Mary Campbell, one of the owners of the shop, and stylist behind this woodland shoot, managed to bring the warm heirlooms and rustic pieces you can see in her store, to the Victorian farmhouse where this faux wedding took place. Wool, firelight, the warmth of a family gathering- there really is something special to be said about winter weddings, isn’t there?
These weeks are flying by way too fast. But the weather is finally getting chilly, holiday parties are happening all around us, and ending the week with a beautiful rainy wedding like this one, from Brett and Jessica, just hits the spot. The bride’s hairstyle alone is something to swoon over, it’s so adorable. So are the terrarium centerpieces, her vintage inspired dress and their North Carolina venue.
Kim’s bouquet recipe: Poppy pods, peonies, roses and ranunculus.
Such a cute do, isn’t it?
It was about 5 minutes before the ceremony that the decision was made to hold the ceremony outside, in the tennis lawn as it was supposed to, rather than under a tent due to the rain. Glad they did because that backdrop is beautiful!
Congratulations Kim + Seth!

Chocolate truffles, oh yes. We spotted these babies on Santa Barbara Chic, had a little moment of desperation for them to instantly appear in our hands, then decided we’d share them with you. We wouldn’t dare try to make these ourselves when chocolatier, Jessica Foster can make them to perfection, but wouldn’t they make a really great Christmas gift? Or even wedding favors!
Gah, that chocolate looks amazing.
