Southern glamour wedding: Casey + Paul
Amy Osaba is naturally gifted – at everything. You might be used to seeing her florals light up every corner of an event, but when she’s also the talent behind the design + coordination, the finished product is one incredibly happy couple, a beyond gorgeous wedding, and the best way to start a Monday. Being from the South, Casey wanted to make sure the overall theme of her wedding kept a certain ruggedness while playing up a glamorous, metallic, country look. Expect lots of pretty!
Kate Spade has a way of killing us softly. These glitter heels are precious!
These charcoal bridesmaid dresses are so romantic. They’re also part of the Vera Wang White Collection at David’s Bridal!
Wow does that bouquet pop!
Those handmade runners add just the right amount of glam to the (12) farm tables Casey’s dad built. Even more beautiful is that her dad used the wood from her great grandfather’s barn.
How C + P met: Paul and I met in the summer of 2002 at a study abroad program in London. We both took an introduction to an Art History course and were paired with each other during the first week. A friendship turned into a brief summer romance. After four weeks – we both headed back to the States (me to Alabama and Paul to Kansas). Over the next 6 years we emailed back and forth. Paul came to visit me in Alabama and back where we originally met in London when I moved there for grad school. In 2006 Paul moved to NYC. I had already moved back from London and was planning to move to NYC as well! When I moved to NYC in February 2007 we were finally in the same city as each other and the rest is history!
Congrats to Casey + Paul!
