Covington, Georgia

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We were definitely a couple with a small budget, so the price was great. The theme and location of the venue is exactly what we wanted. We wanted a local outdoor wedding that our family and friends would be able to easily attend. It was also special to us because it’s a county-owned site, so we remembered taking field trips there as kids in school. Overall, it was just a great place for us, and it could not have been more beautiful!  

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. As our unity symbol, we made a braid. One of our favorite things to do together is rock climb. To tie that in, we used our rock climbing rope that we both learned how to tie a belay knot with.

2. One of our very special details was our foot washing ceremony during our ceremony. It was a symbol of our faith, and it showed how in our marriage we are committing to serve one another in a loving and caring way. 

3. Another favorite detail we had was our remembrance of our grandparents, who have passed on. We had 8×10 photos in frames of them sitting on the front rows during the ceremony. They were very special people in our lives so we wanted to make sure they were remembered in an important way at our wedding.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.

Our most special moment was our first kiss. It had been raining early that morning, so we were very nervous. It was partially cloudy all day as we kept our fingers crossed to at least hold off on the rain until the reception. Luckily, it worked! The rain held off and here is the special part: as we finished our first kiss, the clouds parted, and the sun was shining right on our faces. It was the cutest, most wonderful and perfect moment we could have asked for. Our guests could not stop talking about it!

Rustic Teal Summer Farm Wedding in Georgia

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 03, 2013

Melinda & Zach

June 8

Hampton, Georgia

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

When we first viewed Nash Farms and saw the beautiful natural backdrop, we knew this was the place for our wedding.  My husband is a history nerd, so the historical nature of Nash Farms appealed to us.  It was cool that we were able to wed in a location that some of the Civil War took place.  We had lots of really neat places for photo ops; hay bales, barns, rolling hills and oak trees.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. I knew from the beginning I wanted a country chic wedding, so I began my search for antique teal Ball Mason jars.  My mom took a trip to Kentucky to visit family and came back with lots of them.  It was fun collecting them throughout the year, each one was unique.

2. Instead of a traditional toast, I wanted to do a coke toast.  Nothing is better than an ice cold coke in a glass bottle on a hot summer evening.  This was a great moment in the wedding, as Zach’s brother was the best man and my sister was the maid of honor, and they were the ones to toast us.

3. My colors were teal and tan. I wanted to incorporate that into a fun candy bar for the guests, so they could take home a little piece of the day.  I picked out candy that matched the theme and other candy that was our favorite. Everyone enjoyed the sweet treats!

3. If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

My one piece of advice would be getting a great photographer.  It is definitely worth the money!  If you don’t think your budget will allow, make changes.  I couldn’t be happier with Tate, she was amazing.  She helped us feel relaxed, and she knew how to capture the look of my wedding even better than I did.

4. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.

Zach and I waited a long time for this day, and we wanted to make “our” moment very special.  Before I started to come down the aisle, his brother tapped him on the shoulder to turn around.  It was a perfect moment between the two of us that our guests got to witness.  This moment, along with me seeing all my loved ones and friends sitting in the audience had us both in tears.  They were happy tears, and I will treasure this moment forever!

Vibrant and Bright Indian Wedding in Georgia

Posted by Kim on Jun 24, 2013

Supernita & Vivek

April 7

Savannah, Georgia

~~~~~~~~

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We wanted an outdoor wedding near the water that captured the essence of Savannah – the city we got engaged. The Westin Savannah Harbor Resort provided us that backdrop for capturing the beauty of the river and historic Savannah, while providing us the flexibility of indoor and outdoor spaces that we wanted for our spring wedding weekend.

Which details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. The magical setting on Friday night, with the lights, colors, dhol player, surprise fireworks on the river against the backdrop of historic Savannah.
  2. The oversized floral arrangements and neutral color palette of our reception day, with abundant candles and flowers. Our place settings that had a rose bloom and a personalized thank you note for each of our guests at the reception.  It allowed us the opportunity to individually express our gratitude for their presence and make it a more intimate event.
  3. The beautiful weather we lucked out with on the day of our wedding. The pink orchids and crystals, rose petals down the aisle and the vibrant outfits of our wedding party, against the clear blue skies made for a perfect afternoon setting for our wedding.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

The wedding is a celebration of your love! Minor details don’t matter, focus on absorbing the love and energy around you. During the ceremony, try to do a time-out moment where both of you capture a mental picture of your ceremony – that will remain with you forever!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

The moment Vivek and I entered our Friday night Sangeet event (the first event of our wedding weekend), we were awestruck by the fact that everyone had traveled great distances (Savannah is not an easy city to get to) just to celebrate with us — and that is our most amazing memory the entire weekend!

Modern Navy and Yellow Spring Wedding in Georgia

Posted by Caitlin on Jun 20, 2013

Maying & Bobby

March 9

Acworth, Georgia

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The wooden interior and rustic decoration are so unique. Their food and drink package is great and affordable. We do want our guests to have a good time so that’s when we knew we want to have our wedding there.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. I loved the groom’s cake. My husband is a Georgia Tech fan, and I am University of Georgia fan. The cake is the Buzz on a spider web, which looks like a Georgia Tech cake but with a little twist.

2. I loved our DJ playing “Gangnam Style” and when everyone started dancing. It was so much fun!

3. My mom and groom’s mom were dancing together. My parents are from China and don’t know English at all. It was so sweet to see two moms communicating and dancing without language.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day that you can’t stop thinking about.

Walking down the aisle and looking at the groom is definitely the moment I can’t stop thinking about. I felt so much in those few minutes.

Vintage-Inspired, Shabby Chic Wedding in Georgia

Posted by Kim on Jun 18, 2013

Virginia & James

October 20

Monroe, Georgia

~~~~~~~~
Q&A with the Bride

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The venue felt incredibly warm and intimate. We live out of state, but wanted to have our wedding in Georgia so that my grandparents would be able to attend. When we visited the location, the wood, brick, and lighting gave it a romantic and intimate feel, which is what I was looking for. Although Monroe is a bit out of the way in what was already a “destination wedding”, we felt the venue was worth it. We got a lot of feedback from guests that the venue, combined with the personal touches and toasts of the wedding, all lent an intimate and warm atmosphere, where guests truly felt they held a special part of our lives.

Which details from your wedding were your favorites?

Emily from Stella Harper Events took on a lot of the design elements. I love the DIY feel, but had none of the resources of talent, time, or proximity to the locale, so Emily was a lifesaver. She created an adorable banner that hung across the mantlepiece on which family photographs, mostly from weddings, were displayed. She made an identical, tiny banner for our wedding cake, all using unique fabrics that fit our wedding colors. She also found different vintage containers that also fit in our color scheme, and worked with Stems Atlanta to create unique, adorable flower centerpieces with them. Finally, I really loved that my bridesmaids all wore different blue dresses. It’s cheesy, but they were all different but beautiful, just like them.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

When James looked at me and said his vows, everything else went away, sped up, and slowed down at the same time.
