This glorious fete at Grand Oaks has the perfect blend of gorgeous antique charm and soft, flawless beauty. It is everything classic and perfectly graceful, just as you would hope every Southern Belle would be. From the amazing images from Peach Blossom Photography that make us ooh and ahh, to the rustic bluegrass group, Old Mill Road Band – complete with overalls – this wedding has me homesick for the South. It is simply wonderful in every way, and the cherry on top, is actually a peach! Click here for even more loveliness in our gallery.
From Peach Blossom Photography… Zach and Leah had a lovely wedding at Grand Oaks House in Cartersville this past May. Grand Oaks house is a fabulous, all-inclusive wedding venue. They picked the venue because it was a reasonable price, considering their low budget. The venue has a beautiful, lush garden with fabulous statues and natural light. The house itself is full of beautiful antiques. Ray Thacker, the owner of the house, is fabulous and designs the delicious cakes and beautiful floral arrangements himself. Leah spent a lot of time on Pinterest! She designed and sewed each bouquet wrap herself so each bridesmaids’ bouquet was unique. She placed a fun pair of earrings on each of the bouquets as a gift for the girls! Leah and Zach met at UNC and decided to get married in Georgia, where Zach is from, so the color palette was important to them.They chose Carolina blue and Georgia peach for their colors. To continue with the peach theme, they had a peach piñata made for the kids to bust since the focus of the wedding was about the whole family. One of my favorite things about the wedding is still Leah’s beautiful Casablanca lace gowns! A few other fun details included the local honey they gave as favors and the ribbon picture hanger that showed the couple at different ages. The local bluegrass band was fabulous too!
