"When you fish for love, bait with your heart." - Mark Twain
A fly-fishing theme was the perfect backdrop for Mary Margaret and Sam's wedding in February. As a long-time friend of the family, I wanted to do something special for them to honor the love they have for each other as well as our friendship. So we helped Mary Margaret and Sam tell their story with cookie favors. Designed by Lettered Olive, the labels were customized with a fly-fishing theme in their wedding colors.
A mutual love of fly-fishing in the great outdoors led Sam to propose using hand-tied flies. This inspired a gorgeous engagement shoot on the Saluda river in Columbia, SC. Their engagement story was captured beautifully on the blog of Greenville-based photographer, Latoya Dixon. We love how she incorporated the elements of the sport to tell their story. And the pictures from the wedding were equally beautiful. The iconic image below was even featured on HuffPost Weddings!
I was honored to witness such a beautiful celebration. Mary Margaret's mother and I have been friends for 25 years, having met in a mother's Bible Study. And I've known Mary Margaret and her twin sister since they were born. Sam's parents are old friends as well. And Stacy, the Mother of the Bride, has been one of Grey Ghost's staunchest and longest-standing supporters. Stacy came to Charleston to work the Charleston Wine + Food festival the first year we were in business. She even came down on her time off during the December 2014 holiday chaos after our cookies were on the Today Show. I was excited to create these custom cookies for the happy couple.
