Peach + Navy Flat Creek Country Club Wedding

Our gorgeous week on the LBB is soon coming to an end SMPers, but as you know, we like to go out with a bang—we wouldn’t have it any other way. This darling soiree dressed in peach and navy, it’s that ‘bang’ and so much more. Drenched in gorg florals from Virtu Floral Design, graced with a beauteous Bride in a satiny Fabulous Frocks dress, a little bit of prep and a whole lotta class, Amy Arrington made sure to snap up every lovely bit and it’s all here in the gallery.

From the beautiful Bride…Though I haven’t lived in the South for more than 10 years, I had always pictured getting married in my hometown in Georgia. Also, since my husband is from the South (Kentucky), we couldn’t have imagined a better way to capture our upbringings and commemorate such an important part of our lives than to come home to to Peachtree City for our wedding. Having both moved away and made lifelong and special friends from across the country, we were thrilled to bring all the most important people in our lives together in a place that means so much to me.

In planning our wedding, we wanted it to reflect the importance of our faith, our families, and our friends. As such, we carefully crafted our wedding ceremony to include Bible excerpts read by two sets of married friends that we cherish and hymns that have special meaning for us. We also had the ceremony officiated by our pastor from our home church in Cambridge, MA, where we met, dated, and became engaged (we have since moved to Chicago). Similarly, we wanted our reception to include personal touches reflecting our relationship and to be an atmosphere celebrating both our wedding and our friends and family who had traveled great distances to support us. A few highlights from our reception planning included our choice of wedding cake and groom’s “cake” as cookie cake and banana pudding (our respective favorites), table numbers with stories about our relationship that incorporated each number, and the last dance song as “Call Me Maybe” – an admittedly silly song that has a special story behind it from our relationship.

Lastly, our wedding day was sunny and warm – one of those perfect days that the South seems to magically create in Spring. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Every moment from the preparations of hair and makeup with my bridesmaids in the morning to the last song of the night and our exit with sparklers for our golf cart get-away, was perfect.

Classic Tybee Island Wedding

There’s something about red anemones that really get my blood flowing. This pretty flower is like a sweet burst of energy in any bunch of blooms. And Urban Poppy knew it would fit right in to this Tybee Island soiree from Artworks Wedding Cinema. A few second into the amazing film and you’ll see why. It’s a day of elegance, yet sooo much fun. Have a look at Harper Noel Photography‘s imagery for more!

From Artworks Wedding CinemaOh wow. What a fantastic day this was! Lauren and Terence are now officially one of my most FAVORITE couples! One of the things that sets them apart is their total devotion and dedication to each other … and their patience! They knew they were to be married years ago, but both wanted to finish school and their masters before taking that glorious walk down the aisle.

When Lauren told me her colors were blush, ivory, red, black, and gold … I was honestly thinking … okay … but oh wow, how fabulous everything looked all put together! The bridesmaids were super chic in their floor length black gowns and the red and gold were made adorably bright with the addition of blush. It was so so pretty! Harper Noel Photography was such a fabulous choice in capturing all that gorgeousness!

The couple was one of the first ones to enjoy their reception in Tybee Island Wedding Chapel’s newly added reception space, and they surely set the stage for couples to follow. We hope the two of them have a fantastic life together and were so happy to have been there to capture it all!

And because we simply can’t get enough of these two, here are a few snaps from their super sweet engagement session…

From The Bride…Amit and I met in Charleston, South Carolina at the hospital where Amit worked. The second that we saw each other, there was an instantaneous attraction/connection. We started out as very close friends. We would meet at local pubs and play Connect Four competitively. We would laugh for hours! I went to his band’s shows and was his #1 fan. Given our many mutual interests, senses of humor, and our love of French bulldogs, it was clear that our relationship was fated. We truly do complete each other’s thoughts and sentences!

After many months of dating, Amit and I were both offered positions in Atlanta. We were both excited to move back to our native state of Georgia and to a city that was dear to both of our hearts. I was born and raised in the city and Amit lived in Atlanta during college.

The evening before we were engaged, we enjoyed a concert with friends at the beautiful Piedmont Park. The next morning, we grabbed brunch and came back to pick up our car. We decided to take a Sunday morning stroll through the park because it was a beautiful day, and strangely, it marked exactly two years from the day we met! The scene was reminiscent of one of our first dates at a friend’s wedding in Piedmont Park. After taking in a beautiful view of the Atlanta skyline, Amit got down on one knee and popped the question-It was a perfect surprise!

Amit and I decided that Atlanta was the most fitting place to celebrate our new beginning. We both instantly thought of the Georgian Terrace because it’s absolutely beautiful, and its very “Atlanta”. It is a perfect combination of historic and modern, which is a blend of the two cities that we lived in together. The Georgian Terrace is one of the few historically preserved sites in the Atlanta area. Ever since I was a little girl, I always remember driving by it when my mom and I would go to the Nutcracker at the Fox. I also had pictures taken of myself in the beautiful stairwell when I was in my teens. The Grand Ballroom hosted the Gone With the Wind premiere ball, so I loved the sense of history in the room (it’s also one of my favorite movies J).

Our theme was classic and traditional. We wanted something that was timeless and it was fitting for our personalities. The color scheme was lavender and white with hints of peach. Lavender is my favorite color and I incorporated the white and peach accents since I’m an avid Clemson fan (the school colors are orange, white, purple).

On our wedding day, I wore my grandmother’s ruby ring on my right hand as my something “old” and wore her hanky from her wedding day as my “something borrowed” from my aunt. We were very close, and she’s no longer with us. So, I was able to feel her presence on our wedding day. I also wore a “sixpence in my shoe” that was given to me from one of my closest friends.

There were so many wonderful memories from the day, but we both agreed that the ceremony was amazing. I will never forget the moment that our eyes met as I was walking down the aisle. Everyone else literally melted away. I vividly recall the flood of emotion I felt when my dad met me down the aisle to give me away. During the ceremony, our officiant, Perry Rintye, broke the tension with surprise Yoda voice, which was something that we joked with him about in our initial conversations. It definitely made us laugh. We each shared our reasons for marrying one another and favorite traits with him before the wedding without knowing what the other had said. Our answers were read during our ceremony and were so touching. It made our ceremony even more intimate and personal.

We also enjoyed our time on the rooftop of the Georgian Terrace after our pictures with our families and bridal party. The sunset provided the perfect backdrop for our moment to just “be married” and take in the beautiful skyline that mirrored the one on the day that we were engaged.

We were announced as husband and wife from the picturesque balcony overlooking the Grand Ballroom. It was such an overwhelming feeling to have a bird’s eye view of all of your loved ones and friends in one room. We will never forget that moment. I recall instantly feeling the mood of the lavender lights. The Grand Ballroom is gorgeous without any decorations, so we wanted to keep it simple. I remember being even more blown away by our centerpieces. David at Chelsea Floral Designs went above and beyond. All of the flowers were gorgeous!!

We wanted a big party for our reception, so a rocking band, delicious food from the Livingston Restaurant, and plenty of libations were top on our list. Atlanta Beat rocked the house! They were amazing and even let Amit stand in on guitar with them. He played Billy Idol’s, White Wedding and Guns N’ Roses’, Sweet Child of Mine. It was so much fun!! The evening could not have run smoothly without the help of Dana Kicklighter from the Georgian Terrace. She was incredibly professional and attentive, and really made the night happen!

We exited our reception with a police escorted horse and carriage ride down Peachtree Street. It’s not every day that you see a horse and carriage stopping traffic on one of the busiest streets in Atlanta! It was relaxing to take a stroll and enjoy the last few moments of our wedding day. Laura did such an amazing job of capturing our moments on that day. Her pictures were absolutely breathtaking. You only have your pictures and your memories after your wedding day. Thank goodness our story was captured so beautifully by Laura, so we will always be able to reminisce the happiest day of our lives.
