From Molly Mae EventsThis wedding just makes me happy. Perhaps it was the breathtaking view from where the ceremony and reception took place, or it could be the perfectly picked colors that complemented the backdrop just right. There is one thing that is certain, and it is Megan and Brian just make me happy. After a first date at a cabin weekend one Fall, they played hooky the following Monday to spend just one more day together. A romance that started in the natural beauty of the North Georgia Mountains, it was appropriate the start of their life as husband and wife would follow suit.

Megan and Brian were married on May 30, 2015 at the beyond stunning Waterfall Club in Clayton, Georgia. They promised their life and love to each other overlooking Lake Burton where the bride spent every summer growing up. You could actually see her grandmother’s lake house from where they stood. Surrounded by only the closest family and friends, the backdrop to the very beginning of their new life together was something from a fairytale. Guests were invited to continue enjoying the view with dinner, drinks and dancing.

To not take away from the raw, natural beauty of their venue, the bride chose neutral colors of greens, whites, ivories and grays – colors that just seemed meant to be for a venue like the Waterfall Club. The use of fresh herbs throughout incorporated a fresh, organic feel, while countless candles added the ultimate romantic touch.

A late night appearance of the infamous King of Pops and grand sparkler exit was the perfect ending to a the start of a perfect life.

From the Bride… Once deciding to marry in Atlanta, my childhood home and a city that holds such a special place in my heart, it did not take long to choose the venues. We knew we wanted a traditional Southern black tie wedding with some unexpected twists that paid homage to the city and region’s heritage. Finding a wedding planner was tricky because I wanted a very specific aesthetic and it was important that nothing felt too contrived or predictable. It did not take long after finding Amy Osaba to know that she would be the perfect fit and a dream to work with.

The ceremony took place in my church, First Presbyterian of Atlanta, which also happens to be one of the oldest and most beautiful sanctuaries in town. The reception, immediately following the 6:30 in the evening service, took place at the St. Regis Atlanta. Located in the heart Buckhead, the ballroom and terrace used for the cocktail hour and sit down dinner were the perfect combination of glamour, elegance and brought the exact ambiance that we were hoping to achieve. The late summer night was beautiful and an outdoor whiskey bar and cigar roller under bistro lights and gorgeous stars painted a perfect canvas. Inside the ballroom were meticulously set long tables profiling the dance floor, cake, furniture vignettes and the moss wall backdrop for the stage and 14-piece band. With a large hanging floral installation above the main table and ethereal lighting and flower arrangements thoughtfully placed all over the timeless ballroom it painted the picture of an enchanted garden.

It was easy to see and feel all of the attention to detail and careful attentiveness that took place in selecting everything from start to finish. The night was an absolute dream come true and everything we had hoped for and more!

From Simply Charming SocialsThe day could not have been more beautiful for this lovely Spring wedding in Georgia. Kenzie and Ward, as they are known affectionately, celebrated among friends and family at the beautiful Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club, a whitewashed stables amongst fields and blooms. Kenzie and mom Wesley enlisted wedding planner and designer Kristine Cooke of Simply Charming Socials to create a botanical-inspired wedding, color washed in an array of pastels. Kathryn McCrary photographed each moment of the affair.

As each side of the bridal party dressed for the day, it was apparent this couple is so loved by friends and family as laughter and smiles are aplenty. Kenzie dressed with her maids, mom, and three sisters. All of the girls donned in flowy floor length dress, the bridesmaids from Joanna August, and the three sisters in floral numbers by Reformation. Kenzie sat to get her hair and makeup perfected by Jennifer Nieman, complete with flowers in her hair, before dressing in a form-fitting Nicole Miller gown found at The Sentimentalist in Atlanta. On the other side of the property, Ward and his groomsmen joshed around and sampled the bourbon bar before dressing in their grey suits and white silk yarmulkes. Father of the bride and friends of the family gathered with the rabbi to sign the ketubah, the final duty before the ceremony began.

The guests were shuttled to Douglasville, GA where they arrived to a courtyard ceremony, a display of white chairs nestled between horse paddocks. Southern sweet tea and lemonade greeted friends pre-ceremony as they listened to Athens-based bluegrass duo, Cicada Rhythm. No outdoor Jewish ceremony would be complete without a chuppah, constructed of birch branches and swathed in hand-dyed ombre peach linens. The Flower Post adorned the traditional marriage structure with a garland of lush greenery and pinky blooms. Under the cloth sat a table with ceremonial items for the vows Kenzie and Ward exchanged and the sealing of their union.

After the ceremony, guests were treated to a cocktail hour on the back lawn as they indulged in delectable appetizers from caterer Sun in my Belly and lounged in beautiful vintage furniture. Blue Eyed Yonder’s pink sofa, lovely settee, and bespoke bar cart made for comfortable conversation pieces. Before the reception began, Kenzie and Ward headed down to the field to take some portraits with the resident horses. Kenzie is an avid horse lover and equestrian so a botanical wreath for her equine friends was a must.

As guests were welcomed to the reception, they were seated in a room filled with lush linens, cascading white drapery, and place settings fit for a farm-to-table feast. From hand-dyed runners to watercolored hand-lettered place cards by Lairsey Paper Co. to vintage votives, no detail was left unnoticed. Toasts and bubbly were flowing as friends and family enjoyed a sensational meal. After dinner, it was on to the other side of the stables for a peachy cake, petite desserts, and dancing for one and all. The Drive Time Band was lively and played a mix of dance hits, throwback tunes, and, of course, the horah. The evening ended with a bubble farewell and tons of hugs and kisses as Kenzie and Ward exited into the night.
