Bella Bride: Halley Giles & James Johnson

Bella Bride Halley Giles wed James Johnson on a glorious spring day with a beautiful ceremony held at Perkins Chapel and a stellar reception at The Rosewood Crescent Hotel.  We LOVE everything about this dream wedding; the colors, the florals, linens, lighting all in celebration of their perfect love which is so apparent in the gorgeous imagery captured by Karlisch & Wrubel

Hailey carried a fragrant bouquet of sweet lily of the valley that complemented her gown wonderfully. 

Her bridesmaids wore champagne toned gowns and carried the most decadent floral blooms of hydrangeas, lilac, sweet peas, garden roses, freesia and champagne toned majolicas.  

Hailey and her lovely mother who carried a tiny nosegay of ranunculus and peonies.

These two cuties definitely added some whimsy to the ceremony.  Love the floral halo made of sweet hyacinth blooms.

The ceremony area was decked with ivory, champagne and blush tones with altar arrangements designed with fluttery hydrangeas, peonies, roses and pretty cherry blossom branches.  Soft textured markers of hydrangeas and long strands of cascading orchid garlands lined the rest of the aisle creating such a pretty path for the bride.

The ceremony was short and sweet with 200 guests in attendance.  Absolutely love her gown so befitting of spring! 

Once guests arrived at the reception, a magical and ethereal walkway created of cherry blossom trees and  suspended candlelight enticed guests to venture into the reception.  Talk about a memorable entrance!


Guests then cocktailed in the garden room where festive lighting accented the all white/ivory floral placed throughout. 

The rest of the reception occurred in the ballroom where lavish displays of cherry floral trees blossomed atop tables, soft textured mounds of all ivory and blush floral doused the tables, suspended candlelight glistened throughout and a warming candlelit glow encompassed the room.

These custom chair covers and place settings were the perfect addition to the family head tables.  Thanks to Posh Couture Rentals. 

Grand Entrance! 

These cakes are like works of art.  Lauren of Fancy Cakes really out did herself.

The Cowling Band then set the night a rockin away!  Love Halley's dress change for the party.  We are definitely lovers of fringe!

Such a beautiful night!  Definitely one to remember for a lifetime.  Thanks so much Halley for allowing us to be a part of your special day! Much Love to marriage and now motherhood we hear!
