The week has finally arrived! The week where I will marry my best friend, and go from Catherine Booker to Catherine Booker Jones. Blake and I started dating when we were wee high-schoolers, 16 and 17 to be exact. We have literally grown-up together, going through all stages of life together thus far, and we managed to not only grow individually, but together. God has blessed us with His perfect plan, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with this amazing man! When it came time to plan our wedding, my little girl fantasies came to life. I had always envisioned a true classic, southern wedding. We will be married in my childhood church, and our reception will take place at an older home, a landmark in our South Georgia hometown. Blake and I both have our own styles that when melded together (in my biased opinion) is awesome! So, we fused our unique flair with classic, southern design. The day will be a wonderful blend of our background and personal styles, and the company of our wonderful friends and family.

You can imagine my excitement today when I stumbled across edible Violas (that’s a type of flower) on the Terrain website today. Top any summer dish or beverage with these beauties and add instant fun. I would pour them into a glass vase and use it as an accessory and just grab a handful and sprinkle when I need to garnish my meals…

It is June, commonly one of the most popular months for weddings, and we are all “wedding buzzed” with Pamela’s wedding this weekend, and another next weekend (mine!). We are loving the new online boutique: Boutique Theo, launched by some the most creative hands in the industry: Lisa Vorce (event designer), Mindy Rice (floral and event designer), Charlotte Hale (owner of Plum Pretty Sugar), and Jennifer Delesie (talented wife of photographer Aaron Delesie) —so much creativity oozes from their shop, take a look:
Some products we love:
This is only a sliver of the items THEO boutique has to offer, shop today!
See the feature wedding designed by Lisa Vorce and Mindy Rice and photographed by Aaron Delesie in our Spring 2013 issue and in archives.

Our sweet Pamela gets married this Saturday! We wish nothing but blessings and joy for you and Robin on your special day! A little language of flowers lesson: White Hyacinth= Loveliness, White Camellia= You’re Adorable, Stock= Bonds of affection; You’ll always be beautiful to me. (click here for language of flowers).

There’s nothing more enchanting than uncovering a hidden gem—that gem being a garden. Not only did I love The Secret Garden when I was a little girl, but I still go on walks and find myself on gorgeous streets hoping to find an antique gate with climbing ivy leading into a mystical garden…Ok yes, I just had a day dream at my desk—have you ever found a secret garden?
