Sitting down to dine at tables reminiscent of Dutch still life with some Georgia peaches thrown in for good measure. That sentence set the scene for this Atlanta wedding crafted by Juli Vaughn Designs and the reality is just as pretty as the description. All those details are complimented with a layer of soft, light-filled beauty seen through the lens of Heidi Geldhauser with Our Labor of Love and you can see even more right here in the full gallery.
From Juli Vaughn Designs…Simona (who is Romanian) and Darren (who is from Michigan) traveled a very long way to find one another. They were married at the Callenwolde Fine Arts Center in Georgia on a July 15, 2012, with Simona’s father officiating – partly in Romanian and partly in English. Both artists, Darren and Simona wanted to incorporate art into every part of their ceremony and reception, asking that the tables look as though guests were sitting down to Dutch still life paintings. They also gave guests the opportunity to create their own erasure poetry, leaving a page from a book and white-out at each guest’s place. This element is particularly sweet since Darren proposed to Simona, a literature professor and writer, via erasure poetry!
