real engagement:: hayley and braxton

You may recognize this sweet (and beautiful!) couple from the main page of the KDE website. Oh, Hayley and Braxton! Hayley is one of my beloved sorority sisters and long-time friends. She also happens to be one of the most naturally stunning people I know. She exudes an air of J Crew meets Kate Spade meets Southern sweetheart with a dash of sass. We capitalized on her natural style to plan the wedding of her dreams for this Saturday, October 12 (which will inevitably be the most beautiful weekend of the year).

Hayley, it has been a true honor to work with you from the get-go (and squeal about the prospect of it a month before he actually got on bended knee, in fact, at Kristin's shower). I will truly be sad to not have our late-night Starbucks planning dates to look forward to month after month, but I am absolutely thrilled for you to be marrying your college sweetheart in three days. Wishing you all the happiness in the world and the most fabulous trip to Jamaica EVER.... xoxo, KSD
