The Wedding Stationery Retreat


We love any opportunity we have to host amazingly talented creatives in our space. Coming together to learn and grow with one another is what we are all about. That's exactly what we mean when we say "community over competition." That's why when we were asked to host The Wedding Stationery Retreat at the Leslie - Alford Mims House we couldn't help but say yes right away. 

It's important to never loose your drive and passion to learn, grow, and find new and innovative ways to do things. We encourage you to get out today and seek to learn something new. Whether that's diving further into something you love or starting a new hobby, continue to feed your minds and have fun while you do it! 

We just want to take a moment to say thank you to all of the vendors who constantly push us creatively and mentally! We are so thankful for your drive, passion and love of this field. Each and every weekend we are inspired!

Sierra + Brett - Winter Engagement Shoot


We may be biased, but we think the Leslie - Alford Mims House is absolutely beautiful year round, even in the winter! When Sierra + Brett wanted to shoot their winter inspired engagement photos at our house we were overjoyed. They are such a sweet couple, full of bright smiles and contagious laughs. 

Whether you are a Mims House bride or not you are always welcome to take your engagement photos here! We will welcome you with open arms and warm hugs. Just head on over to our contact page to reach out for more information or visit us on Wednesday's from 4PM - 7PM at our weekly Open House. 

We cannot wait to meet you!

Happy Wednesday friends! Who doesn't love a little inspiration to keep you going through those mid week blues?! This beautiful Southern Styled Shoot gives us all the feels! With bright pops of orange, yellow and pink you can't help but feel joyful when you look at these photographs. 

We say this all the time, but we absolutely love working with amazing vendors like the ones listed below. We gain so much creative insight and inspiration from one another, making it so easy to create such beauty.

If you set your minds to it, you too can create something beautiful! 

Each and every Wednesday we are happy to host an Open House at the Leslie - Alford Mims House.
