Adorable North Georgia Engagement

Sweeter than a southern peach, this stylish and oh-so-Southern e-sesh has stolen my heart. From their romantic walk through a river (on the property where this Groom proposed!), to their sunny smiles, Sawyer Baird captured it all. It’s a gallery that you’ll want to revisit and you can see it all right here!

From Sawyer BairdHillary & Jay…where do I even begin with these two? They are the absolute sweetest!

Hillary & Jay decided to do their engagements in the small town of Clarkesville, Georgia. We started in the town and enjoyed a quick stroll around town. Later we went over to Jay’s family property on the river – the spot where Jay proposed to Hillary! So sweet, right?

From the golden light to Hillary’s super cute outfits (Show Me Your Mumu) complete with her Hunter boots! (Hunter boots are always a good addition…) the engagement could not be any more stylish or cute.

Rustic Wedding with Southern Charm

This Bride and I are of the same mindset. Because for her, it all began with finding the dress. A dreamy vision laced with vintage details, she found the perfect gown and married her handsome groom on a day decorated with romance. Graced with light colored bouquets and pretty pops of color, this darling destination fete from the lens of Laura Leslie is filled with loveliness.

From the beautiful Bride… When I began planning my wedding I was so excited to find a dress. I knew that I wanted something romantic with a vintage inspired look, something different. I also knew I was going to have a bit of a hard time finding what I wanted. I searched at my local wedding boutiques, looked at all the usual wedding designers. I was exhausted and disappointed because I could not find what I really wanted. And then I came upon Chaviano Couture’s website. I screamed from excitement and showed my Maid of Honor the dress I had focused on. She agreed that that it was perfect. I wasted no time and reached out to Annette. It was the best decision I made. My dress was a complete dream!

We wanted a romantic look so we knew we wanted the bouquet to have light colored flowers with a pop of color. We opted for peonies, roses, waxflowers, tuberoses in peach, pink and ivory. We also included scabiosa pods, dusty millers and some dark blue berries to give it that pop of color.
The cake was a 3 tiered almond amaretto cake with a raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. We decided to have our florist put flowers cascading down the front of the cake as decor.

We live in Miami, Florida and our wedding was in Athens, Georgia so planning a wedding a state away was a bit tricky but we pulled it off!

Atlanta Wedding Planner’s Sweet Park Engagement Session

You know it’s going to be a beautiful engagement session when you find out it was captured through the lens of Sawyer Baird. But when the Bride-to-be is a wedding planner and designer for Atlanta’s Simply Charming Socials, you’re in for an extra special treat. And this sweet e-sesh doesn’t disappoint. From the fresh Spring blooms to the gorgeous couple, there’s nothing not to love. See it all here.

From Sawyer BairdWhen two creatives come together for an engagement session, nothing but magic can happen. Sydney reached out to us about shooting her engagements & wedding after we had worked together on other business projects. Beyond thankful, I was thrilled to work with Sydney for her big day!

Sydney is a wedding planner & designer for Simply Charming Socials, this being how we met, and when Sydney got engaged I almost jumped with joy! Instead, a lot of happy claps & congrats were occurring. Sydney received the most beautiful heirloom ring from Dustin… and it just fits her style and personality perfectly.

When figuring out details for the engagement session we knew we wanted something classy, fun, and in the city. With Atlanta having so many tucked away gems the engagement session was beyond perfect. We started in Inman Perk on the streets (might I add one of the cutest neighborhoods in Atlanta) and then later off of Ponce De Leon for a more classy feel in an area of Private Estates!

From the beautiful Bride… Two special details come to mind because they were so personal: First was the arch we stood under during our ceremony was envisioned and created by my dad and a couple of other very talented friends… adding a very sentimental touch to our ceremony. The second was a gift from my older sister; a unique spin on the cake topper. She gave us a custom made cake topper the day before our wedding, featuring a clay version of Bryan and myself, a replica of the photo that we used for our save the date. The picture was originally taken in front of a wall in Austin, Tx the weekend of our engagement. I loved that this particular photo was close by throughout our entire wedding.

We used a friend’s hot sauce, “Hotlanta” as a wedding favor. Bryan and I both share a love for anything spicy and thought this was also a great way to pay homage to the city we call home.

The most stressful part of planning was finding the perfect venue. We knew that we wanted to have a wedding within the city, yet I had always imagined myself getting married outdoors (and was unwilling to let go of that image). Bryan and I also wanted to be able to have both our ceremony and reception at the same location. That being said, we scoured the city for venues that would allow us to have both a garden-like ceremony, with also having to be large enough to accommodate all of our guests and at the same time, fit within our budget. After a long, painstaking search we stumbled upon Callanwolde which was the perfect fit for us.

Beautiful Backyard Georgia Wedding

With a backyard like this, why get married anywhere else? This lovely couple said their “I do’s” at the Groom’s parent’s backyard at Lake Lanier, and with so much natural beauty all around every photo captured by Graham Terhune is breathtaking! It’s a sweet and simple celebration in hues of mint and blush, and you can see it all in the full gallery right here.

Whimsical

From the beautiful Bride… The wedding style that we were aiming to achieve would be simple, elegant, and timeless. We got married in Shane’s parent’s backyard on a Lake Lanier, and did not want to try to compete with the beautiful backdrop. We chose a very soft color scheme (light mint, blush, and neutrals), and tried to keep everything very clean and simple in order to allow the amazing scenery speak for itself. Flower arrangements were loose and whimsical in attempt to connect with the natural beauty surrounding us. We couldn’t be more pleased with how everything came together and cannot thank all of our vendors enough for the wonderful venue they helped us to create!
