We Likey: Low Country Luxe, Southern Inspired Fragrances


The best thing about having a destination wedding in Saint Simons Island or Jekyll Island is sharing a bit of this beautiful area with your guests.  Many of our clients’ wedding guests come from large metropolises from all corners of the country, so taking a piece of the South home is a welcomed gift.

We’ve fallen in love with Low Country Luxe– a boutique operation that produces Southern inspired fragrances. Hand-poured, conceptualized and created in their Southern Fragrance House, Low Country Luxe’s Signature Collection features Gullah, High Cotton, Live Oak, Moonshine, Sea Grass and Spanish Moss. The two new fragrances are Moonshine and Live Oak. The Belle of the Ball Collection was added to the 2014 product line– with the inspiration for the collection being the candle developed exclusively for the 2013 White House First Lady’s Luncheon.

With candles in several sizes and reed diffusers, these are the perfect gifts for bridesmaids, mothers or any one who loves the South!  Learn more about Low Country Luxe at their website and see their inspiration on Instagram.

Getting “All Jarred Up” with Your Wedding Favors


When I saw these delicious jarred confections, I just knew that they what they would be perfect for!  We’ve already talked about planning your Southern wedding as well as choosing a down home Southern Menu and cocktails, and now you can add “All Jarred Up” to your Southern wedding favors!  If you’d like to share your comfort food with family and friends, yet don’t have the time (or inclination) to bake in small portions, this is perfect for you.  “All Jarred Up,” the new pie and dessert company, delivers bakery freshness and convenience in a jar – just for you – or two, three to four and many more.

All Jarred Up company founder and baking maven, Teri Hiles explains, “I wanted to create something that was a common comfort food, but in a unique single serving design with incredible quality ingredients. The best part about the pies is that they are ready to eat right out of the jar. We ship them to your house already baked. Warming the pie is so easy. You place it in the oven, and in a few minutes you have a perfectly warmed, homemade pie in a convenient size. The half pint pie is the perfect amount for one or two people.”

All Jarred Up currently carries five baked goodies, traditional favorites including mixed berry pie, apple pie, pear pie, banana bread, and chocolate chip cookies. They also make two homemade dessert sauces, caramel and chocolate, that can be served on the side or over your favorite ice cream.  Small on price and big on flavor, All Jarred Up uses only fresh, in season ingredients, and as many all-natural and organic ingredients as possible. All Jarred Up baked goods are freshly prepared, sealed, decorated and retail on with prices ranging from $6 to $13 dollars. Most of their sweet treats come in two convenient sizes: The half pint, perfect for one or two, and the pint, just enough for two or three people. Teri plans to introduce her popular peach pie and pecan pie for the upcoming holiday season. I had an opportunity to try the apple jar and it was ridiculously delicious!  Can’t wait to send as gifts!

Southern Weddings Magazine Launch Party

Southern Weddings Magazine


I had the honor of attending the Southern Weddings magazine launch party in Atlanta at the Dogwood Restaurant.  Lara and her talented team with the help of some other great pros put together an awesome party.  The party was a hit!  I am so glad that I made the trip and got to see so many good friends.  If you’ve been a fan of the Southern Weddings blog, this is a definite treat.

We had an awesome time!  The next day, Scarlett introduced me to Mellow Marshmallow where she, Ginger, Melanie (along with the adorable Miss Zoë), Eliana and Katasha.  I cannot wait to meet up with some of these ladies again when I, along with Liene of Blue Orchid Designs and Saundra of Planning…Forever speak at Eventology 2009.
