You know what I love? When I can take one peek, just one, into gallery of images and get an immediate sense for what the couple in the middle of it all is all about. Where I immediately feel I have all I need to know to call these two up and meet them for a coffee (or maybe over their favorite whiskey) without hesitation. It’s precisely what happened when I snuck a peek at this wedding from Caroline Fontenot, where every image tells a story of two cuties as they begin the next chapter of their love story. And you can get to know them too, right here.
From the Bride… I wanted to incorporate navy in a huge way bc a) our alma maters colors – Georgia Southern and it seemed appropriate for a coastal winter wedding. I wanted an easy going but formal feel. I also wanted to incorporate our southern roots and Travis’s life in South Georgia. Everything from the band to the beer to the food represented everything we hold near and dear to our hearts and lives.
Band – Whiskey Gentry. I was indifferent about the music but Travis insisted on a band so I gave full control over to him. We had seen them a few times in Atlanta but had never considered the fact they could play our wedding. Travis contacted Lauren Morrow, the lead singer, and they were shockingly available. I’m so glad we gt them to play because they have turned out to be great friends and I have a strong feeling they are going to get pretty big here soon. They played everything from originals to covers, all with a bluegrass feel which went along with the theme of the wedding perfectly.
