If you looked up the definition of sweet in the dictionary, there would surely be an image of this lakeside wedding staring back at you. The carefree couple, the simple wildflower bouquets, the boot-clad bridesmaids…all plopped down right next to a lovely lake in Georgia. But all childhood summer camp fantasies turned wedding aside, it is all the happy moments captured by Heidi of Our Labor of Love that really speaks to our hearts. We eat those up by the spoonful around here. See the rest of the happy day in the gallery.

Eric and I were married by a lake in the North Georgia Mountains in October. It was perfect. Everything about our wedding was handmade. From the Mason jar centerpieces to the invitations to the programs to the wedding cake pedestal to the directional signs…we crafted and created it all, with love. We also set-up the altar and guest book area and designed the entire music program. Our musicians were our closest friends. Our entrance into the reception was an acoustic version of ‘Lean on Me’ performed by our wedding party! Indeed, it was a lot of work…but it was also a great time to discover how well we work together. For that, we gave high fives all around!
