Cherokee Run Country Club Wedding by Buffy Dekmar Photography
September 30, 2011

There's just something so fun and sweet about a yellow wedding and I just can't seem to get enough of their cheery, happy vibe! I'm loving the simple bridesmaids dresses with the perfect gray ribbon belt, the cute-as-can-be wishing sticks with multicolored ribbons, and the personalized RSVP cards that were used as decor for the reception. What a great idea! Buffy Dekmar Photography captured this day just brilliantly and there is so much more in the full gallery of images.

From Buffy Dekmar Photography...The sweet bride, Mandie, is a first grade teacher and a modern artist. She makes her own stationery and other paper goodies, so everyone knew her wedding would be full of funky, creative, out-of-the-ordinary details. The yellow and grey color scheme looked great against the Georgia pine trees behind their charming church, and the cowboy boots added the perfect touch of southern flair. The guys balanced things out with their grey sneakers and modern suits. Mandie and Justin's ultra relaxed bridal party had fun playing around in the shaded woods behind the church... So much fun that they almost forgot it was 100 degrees out there. No worries about the sweat, though, because Mandie's mom had everyone covered. She came out with lots of colorful bandannas to wipe our brows! The day unfolded seamlessly from the precious bride and groom's "first look" in the woods, to their church exit to the song "Forever Young" (The couple's new last name is Young!) and then to their sweetly styled getaway to the reception.

Some of my favorite touches of personality from this wedding were the yellow and silver wishing sticks; sweet flower girl's twine headband with butterflies; folk band at the church doors playing music during the guests' entrance and exit; Model A Ford getaway car (won at a raffle); "guest libs" in the programs (fill-in-the-blank cards for guests to write notes to the bride and groom, which they dropped in a basket on the way out); personalized RSVP cards on display attached to an old box springs; and homemade white confectionaries of all types in lieu of a wedding cake. Mandie and Justin are such a sweet couple and their wedding was the perfect reflection of their lively personalities and their pure, unassuming love. What an awesome wedding day!
