Lawrenceville Wedding from Caroline Fontenot Photographer

This wedding is perfection.  A sort of rustic meets romantic meets industrial perfection that takes your breath away the very moment you lay your eyes on the stunning images from Caroline Fontenot Photographer.  It’s the kind of awesomeness that can only be found in a day that is chock-full of DIY details (hello beautiful blooms) and a custom gown that is all kinds of amazing.  See so much more right here in the full gallery.


From the Bride… My dress was truly a work of art. Handmade by Cheryl Taylor. Working with Cheryl to make this dress was one of the most fun and creative experiences I’ve ever been apart of. The most special part was that the lining of the my dress was from my mom’s wedding dress from when she married my step dad. My mom wore a simple Caroline Kennedy style satin dress and it was the exact amount needed for the bias cut satin lining of mine… And then the inner lining of my wedding dress was from a white dress I wore as a child in a cherished photo taken with my Dad. My Dad passed away when I was thirteen and the photo of him and I was taken right before he got sick. Cheryl used the sash from my childhood dress as the anchor for the low cut back of the wedding dress, and the skirt of the childhood dress for my petticoat. The rest of the wedding dress was vintage chantilly lace sourced from Europe with hand beaded chantilly lace flowers appliqued all over the bodice and sleeves.  The full length antique tambour lace veil from Belgium complemented the lace on the gown.

I let my bridesmaids pick their own dresses, since I knew two of the girls would be really pregnant, and I had a lot of different heights. I said cream, nude or ivory – and any material. They were from a variety of places: J.Crew, Anthro, Macy’s, Ruche, Francesca’s.

We aren’t huge fans of cake, and we had King of Pops at a friend’s wedding and loved it, so we decided to do the same! They were by far the most easy vendor to work with! And they let us hand pick from a huge variety of flavors!

My moms sweet friends did ALL of the flowers, boutonnieres and centerpieces. They bought them wholesale in Atlanta the day before and put them together. I had no idea what they would look like except for the photos I had shown them of what I liked. They did a great job, because everything was so beautiful!

We had guests sign postcards we collected over the years, from places we lived or visited before and after we were together. We asked guests to sign one from a place that was special to them or just write a note. Then they hung them on a big antique window pane. We had so much fun after the honeymoon reading what everyone wrote- some were funny and unsigned!

A note and a packet of flower seeds was on each plate. The note had a link to a playlist Bryan put together and it said the music was from him and seeds from me, a bit of each of our respective past time.

Georgia Wedding at 550 Trackside from B. Moore Events + Todd Baugh Photography

I think in another life I was a Southern belle.  That would explain my complete obsession with all things Southern weddings.  Or maybe it’s because every single soiree you lovelies send our way has the ability to send me into a complete wedding loving frenzy.  Either or.  And in the case of this sweet affair from B. Moore Events, it’s an obsession that will most definitely fill my Tuesday, from the fab stylings of Lucky & Lovely to the darling duo saying “I do” to the gallery of pretty from Todd Baugh Photography.  See it all in the full gallery.

From the Bride… I knew from the day that Mike proposed what kind of wedding I wanted. I wanted a wedding day that would reflect the type of people we are and what is most important to us: friends, family, and having fun. We both decided on every detail together. Our theme was a mix of rustic chic and Southern charm, and our colors were peach and gray. We wanted our guests to relax and be comfortable so we chose a simple and unpretentious setting, which was an old renovated cotton warehouse with a vaulted wood beam ceiling. The way every one we loved came together to give us everything we wanted was amazing. It was the most perfect day ever, and I can’t help but smile every time I think about it!

Lawrenceville Wedding at 550 Trackside by Twin Hearts Photography

I don’t know how a wedding venue could be any cooler than a refurbished cotton mill from 1905, a.k.a 550 Trackside. To top it off, this adorable couple picked their wedding flowers together {swoon!} and when they heard it was going to rain? No problemo, we’ll just buy rain boots! Easy, breezy, happy is what this wedding is all about. Shower yourself with more amazing images by Twin Hearts Photography by visiting the full gallery here.

 

From the Bride… Last February I married the love of my life at Trackside 550 in Lawrenceville, Georgia. We happened upon this refurbished cotton mill from 1905 on a visit to my hometown of Atlanta and fell in love. After picking the venue, we used its rustic and unique essence in planning out our special day. Brandon, my husband, is a graphic designer and designed our save-the-dates, invitations and all of the printed material for our big day. He even designed a one-of-a-kind wedding website that allowed our guests to RSVP online to save money and paper. During our 14-month engagement, we were able to enjoy every second and really put ourselves into our wedding day — from my dress, which was picked out of a magazine by my grandmother, to our flowers, which we picked togther. Everything was just as we wanted it. When we saw that rain was on the schedule for our big day we went out and bought fun umbrellas for our wedding party. We also bought some rain boots to complement my dress.

Since our venue was located by train tracks, a favorite of my late grandfathers, we rented trolley for our wedding party and rode around to historic downtown Lawrenceville for group photos. Since we did first look photos and wedding party photos before the ceremony, our wedding party joined us in a toast before we went into the venue to be married. During our ceremony, I also chose to have my stepfather meet my father and I halfway down the aisle and was given away by them both. Brandon and I are also of mixed faith, so I wrote the ceremony and we had a family friend officiate. The chuppa was decorated with a family heirloom, a tablecloth passed down through three generations. A college friend sang “The Lord’s Prayer” and we had readings from The Alchemist and the Bible. Our ceremony ended perfectly as an oncoming train blew its whistle right as our officiant said, “I now pronounce you husband and wife.” Our guests erupted in applause at the magical unplanned moment.

Our reception was a blast. Being fans of the Beatles, Brandon and I decided to name each of our tables after a Beatles song. When it was time for guests to get their food, the DJ released the table by playing their particular song. It worked perfectly, and we had a dinner hour full of great Beatles music. The food, specialty beer and wine was picked by both Brandon and me. For our cake, we had cupcakes in four flavors: red velvet, strawberry, chocolate and banana chocolate chip. Guests also enjoyed our photo booth, and the photos they left in our guest book are already memories we cherish. The dancing went until the last possible moment, when Etta James’ “A Sunday Kind of Love” put the perfect end on a magical night. From start to finish, everything was just as it should have been. Most importantly, Brandon and I got to spend an amazing weekend with our favorite people in the world and celebrate our commitment and love for each other. He’s my best friend and my soul mate, and I couldn’t be happier to be sharing forever with him by my side.
