When a theme is done well, the outcome can be fantastic. And that is what we have here with this couple’s love of golf represented perfectly at their summer celebration. No Regrets Events incorporated tees, golf markers and clubs throughout the rustic wedding with The Reason capturing every detail. These pics have me ready to dust off my clubs and get outside with my fiancé for a session of our own.
From No Regrets Events… Amanda’s family has called Lake Sinclair in Milledgeville, Georgia home for a long time so she and Bill knew that Lake Sinclair and the beautiful golf course of the Milledgeville Country Club would be the perfect backdrop for their August wedding. Their lifetime love of golf brought them together and they enjoy spending their off time on the fairways. It was only reasonable that their wedding ceremony should take place on the 18th tee box overlooking beautiful Lake Sinclair and that their reception would be on the 16th tee of the same course.
Amanda’s presented Zeb Grant of Z. Grant Designs with a unique wedding challenge…no cut flowers in the bride’s bouquet and any used for centerpieces should be kept to only seasonal locally grown items! Of course, Zeb rose to the challenge by incorporating beautiful succulents, vintage furniture and golf clubs, live plants and trees that have to be repurposed on the club’s golf course in honor of the bride’s father, and Zeb even incorporated a monogrammed golf club marker into the groom’s boutonniere and the bride’s bouquet. Since blue hydrangeas are in abundance this time of year in Georgia he used blossoms cut from his yard in the buffet centerpieces. We did sneak a single white rose into Amanda’s grandmother’s tussy mussy in remembrance of her grandfather.
We are certain many golfers have said a prayer or two on the 18th hole, but the beautiful pews by P.E.W.S. gave the tee box the feel of a sanctuary. The antique door alter was created by Vintage Rentals and framed the couple with the lake in the background. Vintage golf clubs served as pew markers and lovely urns set the alter off perfectly.
For the reception, Amanda and Bill were all about comfort foods made with fresh, local products, with a southern flair. The Chef at the Milledgeville Country Club went above and beyond to source products and to beautifully present them.
Amanda and Bill are huge sports fans and their favorite game watching food is boiled peanuts and craft beer. They wanted to share these favorite items with their guests so they presented a beer in a koozie with the couple’s logo and peanuts in a Weck jar as favors.
Amanda and Bill chose to remain at the reception until its conclusion rather than having a grand send off. They wanted to spend as much time as possible with their family and friends.
