From VUE photography… Lauren and Ryals are an adorable southern couple who met on New Years of 2008 and were introduced by friends. When it came to be time for the wedding, they chose Barnsley Gardens! It was full of warm colors, sunshine and bow ties. The color palette was an array of coral and red tones with all the bridesmaids in different shades. The groom was the first ever to request a black bow tie from the company Brier & Moss, soooo the company named it after groom himself! The “Ryals” has a nice ring to it. Lauren and Ryals also did customized beer glasses with their logo on them for gift baskets, along with our favorite Sweetwater beers and peanuts from a plantation in Ryals’ hometown. The “midnight snack” was from The Varsity — hats and all! The historic Atlanta spot is one of the couple’s favorites. The groom’s cake had their dog on top, along with their Georgia colors.
