On a warm (aka steaming hot) July afternoon, Holli White married the man of her dreams, Max Coyle. And despite Covid challenges, venue closures, and potential rain, they had the southern wedding most brides fantasize about while watching Steel Magnolias. Only me? Ok, moving on! Carve out the rest of your day to drool over this week’s wedding recap!
Now that you’ve seen their photo and you’re over the shock of how stunning they both are, we can get down to the dirty details! Holli spent the morning surrounded by ALL her closest gals – and what better way to spend the most important day of your life?!
After a morning full of hairspray and lashes at a nearby hotel, it was time for Holli to put on the most important dress she’d ever wear. A sweetheart neckline, see through bodice, tons of detail, and a LONG train were a perfect fit for Holli’s classic, sparkly personality!
I did mention that there would be sparkle in the previous paragraph! Check out that ring not to be outdone by those incredible Jimmy Choos!
Bridesmaids bouquets were lined up for a shot in a beautiful window and Holli came over to check them out.
Holli was lucky enough to have the support of both her mom and her sister when it came time to slip into her incredible dress.
A hug from mom makes everything better!
Holli was an absolutely breathtaking bride! I’ll give you all a minute to collect yourselves!
After a reveal to her ladies before they all swooned over how amazing she looked!
Meanwhile, the guys were hanging out in a man cave before getting ready themselves. Some whiskey was shared amongst the group while they hung out and waited for their buddy to get married.
Our dashing groom sported a navy tux with a black bowtie.
That’s the face of a man ready to see his bride!
Before the first look could commence, the bride and groom spent a quiet moment reading letters to each other. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, we LOVE an emotional groom!
Here she comes!
The smiles on their faces never dulled from this moment on!
The look of love . . . we’ve seen it enough to know!

Holli’s bridesmaids wore champagne-colored floor-length gowns. Fun fact: the skirts came off and turned into party dresses for the reception. You’ll see!

After exchanging vows, it was time to exchange a big smooch!
Meet Mr. and Mrs. Coyle!
The parents of the groom graciously offered to host the reception in their Brentwood, TN, home . . . and boy was it a stunner! Guests were greeted first at the mailbox and then at the door with champagne and this amazing view.
The existing light fixture was draped in hanging greenery and florals creating the perfect backdrop for the beautiful wedding cake!
Simple, classic centerpieces adorned each table. Gold accents offered a metallic pop!
The place settings donned a gold beaded charger and a plate complimenting it in another gold design. The gold rimmed water glass and silverware, tied the whole thing together.
The Coyles got to see their name in lights! This fun boxwood wall with custom neon and florals was a fun photo backdrop for guests to use throughout the night.
For an extra touch of glamour, the fireplace was covered in greenery, florals, and pillar candles – you can never have too many!
Time to party! Let’s start with the introductions: meet the Coyles!
Follow that up with a cake cutting and a sip of champagne!
The couple shared their first dance for all the guests to see. And then of course a special moment with their mom and dad.
