Southern Traditions | Wade & Madison

Well, the Southern wedding tradition of burying a bottle of bourbon continues to work its magic!  Madison & Wade was our 2nd wedding for this weekend being married on Saturday, June 1st, and what a gorgeous day they got!  

Burying a bottle of bourbon 1 month before your wedding upside down at the site of there ceremony is a Southern tradition to ward of bad weather. The day of the wedding, after the ceremony, the couple then digs the bourbon up! Not only did their bourbon bottle give them luck on the weather, but when Wade went to dig up the bottle, he did something that probably could not be duplicated.  Wade managed, when he put the shovel into the ground, to exactly hit the seal and cork of the bottle to actually open the bottle as it was still upside down in the ground!  Wade immediately noticed the liquid vanishing before his eyes, so he quickly grabbed the bottle and was amazed to see the top gone. After digging in the dirt a little more, we found the horse bottle top.  How lucky was that???? With this kind of luck, I know this marriage not only is going to last, but will have some exciting stories to tell in its future.

Burying Bourbon

A Southern Tradition to ward off bad weather

Continuing with Southern traditions was the food and it sure was delicious!  Hot Cakes, one of our preferred caterers, served up some shrimp & grits and Southern fried chicken just to name a couple of their dishes to satisfy the guests.  By far, my favorite part was the dessert table all made by Hot Cakes. Thankfully, DJ TD Layman was there to help everyone work off some of those calories!
