There are traditional weddings, and then there is this sweet affair captured brilliantly by Buffy Dekmar Photography; an utterly gorgeous Southern party with lush blooms from Jane Rogers of By Special Arrangement, yummy treats from Jamie Keating Culinary and a ballroom celebration planned to perfection by Belle of the Ball Events. In other words? It’s traditional perfection. See it all here.
From Buffy Dekmar Photograpahy… Natalie and Will’s wedding was a traditional southern celebration, with an added air of modern elegance, complete with thoughtful details and family connections that tied the day together with meaningfulness throughout. Their ceremony was beautifully tender, held inside the grand sanctuary of First United Methodist Church, where Natalie grew up. The reception followed at Del’Avant, a charmingly classic ballroom venue in downtown LaGrange, Georgia.
Subtle pinks and ivory hues with touches of gold gave a sweetly feminine feel, perfectly complemented by the lace detailing on Natalie’s Anne Barge bridal gown. The bridesmaids wore blush Alfred Sung dresses, and carried a fresh mixture of garden roses, hydrangea, and seeded eucalyptus. Groomsmen in black tuxedos rounded out the classic, traditional style.
The reception was characterized by exceptionally creative and delicious appetizers and food stations, invented and prepared by Jamie Keating Culinary. From the gold Chiavari chairs to the scotch bar on the mezzanine, the details were seamlessly and elegantly executed by Eva of Belle of the Ball Events. Band of Gold provided outstanding entertainment, and the honest celebration that came with the night proved worthy of every detail!
