Maria and Mark were married at The Four Seasons Hotel in Atlanta, Ga. on April 26. “The grand staircase at the entrance – that’s what initially caught our eyes, but the overall service, ambiance, and reputation it had is what made it a clear choice for us,” Maria said. The bride wore a sweetheart lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with feathers, accessorized with a ballerina bun and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Notice those two-toned pink strappy platform pumps? Hello, sexiness! “My mom gifted me small pendants to pin inside my dress,” she said. “They were my dad’s. I pinned them close to my heart, so he could be there to walk with me down the aisle.” Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched long chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, roses, ranunculuses, and astilbes. “The ceremony as a whole, especially our vows, was by far my favorite moment,” she said. “I was so incredibly happy, and still am.” Reception tables were surrounded by chiavari chairs, decorated with tall centerpieces, and love salts at each place setting, which served double duty as favors. “Absolutely ALL of the floral arrangements, especially the real cherry blossoms that we were so lucky to have!” Maria said. “Thank you for blooming at just the right time.” Guests were encouraged to guess the locations of the honeymoon. Eventually, they were told it was Paris, France, and Spain. The newlyweds’ best advice? “If anything or anyone gets you stressed, anxious, or nervous on your wedding day (or during the planning process), just remember what your wedding day is really about – you and your fiance’s love for one another,” she said.
