Hot Air Balloon Anniversary Shoot from IYQ Photography

I love anniversary shoots.  Love, love, love them.  Because, really, is there a better way to celebrate one year of happily ever after than with one image after another of pure perfection?  I think not.  And this darling session from IYQ Photography?  All kinds of amazing, with a hot air balloon festival backdrop, one seriously adorable duo and bundles upon bundles of happy.  See it all in the full gallery.

From IYQ Photography… Jess and Zane for married a year ago in a sweet ceremony in the Bride’s grandparent’s backyard. Now, a year later, we all met up at the Helen Race to the Atlantic Hot Air Balloon Festival for a super sweet, super fun anniversary shoot. This couple is so sweet and perfect for each other. Jess even broke out her custom wedding dress (handmade by her sister) for this shoot. We met at sunrise in the mountain town of Helen, Georgia for a colorful, fun hot air balloon shoot.

North Georgia Neverland Farms Wedding from Mark Elkins Photography

You might find it hard, almost impossible, not to fall in love with this sweet duo after taking a peek at all the pretty below captured by Mark Elkins Photography. And when you read the Bride’s description on her big day, I wouldn’t be surprised if you just melted into a pile of wedding-loving mush. Because this, folks, is what weddings should be all about – pure, I.can’t.wait.another.minute.to.marry.you, love. See all the sweetness here.

From the Bride… Our wedding was truly a labor of love! My then-fiance and I are both young actors, so we of course had no money to throw the kind of wedding we had always dreamed of. Luckily, with a little ingenuity, a lot of creativity, and generosity from so many people (including our vendors) we were given a day more perfect than we ever could have hoped for.

Our wedding took place at Neverland Farms in north Georgia, a peaceful, idyllic paradise of rolling meadows, gentle breezes, and stunning foliage almost year-round. As soon as we saw it, we knew we wanted to be married there. Suzy Tebor, the owner, opened her heart to us, and her farm. She took care of all of the details of the venue, including the incredible food. My dress was purchased secondhand, the invitations were handmade, and our florist was a dear family friend.

These details helped cement the notion that this day was, for us, not about how much my dress cost or at what “exotic” location our honeymoon was spent (we spent a quiet, long weekend in a cabin in Helen), but about our love, and the love of our family and friends. So much love went into making our day possible, and that’s what we felt. I hope you enjoy a tour of our day, and are inspired to find ways to make your own dream day come true!

Honestly, I think I’ve gone through each of the perfect pictures in this gallery captured by Libelle Photography about 100 times, and it doesn’t seem enough. It will never seem enough. I need one of you sweet Georgia peaches to take this pretty party and run with it, because it’s southern charm done beyond right.We have Wrennwood Design to thank for all the oohs and ahhs behind the design of this stunning shoot, and you can start the swooning here.

Thankfully it doesn’t have to end there. This behind the scenes film from Artworks Wedding Cinema? Simply stunning.

We sat down with Amberly Odom of Wrennwood Design and came up with the idea of doing a photoshoot that is as sweet as Georgia Peach. Amberly had access to a family friends lovely venue, The Tisinger House, and it all blossomed from there. A fully functioning farm and garden,The Tisinger House provided a beautiful backdrop to our story. With 300 acres of rolling hills and farm land, everywhere you looked there were flowers, animals and sweet honeybees.

Amberly really hit the ball out of the park with her lovely floral designs. Simple yet elegant color palette with sweet peach accents throughout really brought this photoshoot to life.

After reaching out to several vendor friends, we came up with some pretty great collaborations. Sareh Nouri made this beautiful Wilhemina gown for her Fall 2012 Collection in which we styled with some jewelry by Riley Clay Designs.

Rockmart Wedding at Spring Lake from Brita Photography

I love Georgia’s take on rustic. Sure the wedding might take place in a barn, and sure, there might be cowboy boots involved, but those Georgia folks know how to add the perfect splash of sophistication to dress up that rustic feel. Rustic elegance? It’s been coined by Georgians. Case and point – this gorgeous Spring Lake soiree captured by Brita Photography. It’s DIY and downright gorgeous, and it’s all sitting pretty right here.

From Brita Photography… Everything about Jennifer and Seth’s wedding was rustic and a little vintage; filled with DIY details (hand painted wooden signs, burlap decorations and table runners). Their outdoor venue at Spring Lake Events was the perfect blend of Southern charm, decorated with details that Jennifer spent hours making in her garage. Mason jars with white flowers, lined the wooden pews down the aisle; wood, hand painted signs directing you to the wedding down by the lake; and a gorgeous wooden arbor at the altar, covered in beautiful, cascading white flowers and Baby’s Breath.

After Jennifer and Seth said I Do, we walked all around the venue for amazing bride and groom portraits. They were so natural in front of the camera, and so natural together. The lighting was amazing, and their timeline allowed us plenty of time to capture amazing pictures. When they stepped into the reception, announced as Mr. + Mrs. to all their friends and family, the celebration and dancing began…and didn’t end until the sparkler departure.

North Georgia Neverland Farm Wedding from Michael Knowlton

If I had to pick one of my favorite places for saying “I do,” a sweet farm setting would most definitely rank high atop that list.  Especially when that farm setting is one like the breathtaking Neverland Farm, which literally brought tears to this gorgeous bride’s eyes when she first stumbled upon its breathtaking beauty and rolling countryside.  And the gorgeous wedding she and her Mr. put together amongst the towering trees and lush greenery?  It’s amazing.  And you can see every last moment captured by Michael Knowlton right here in the full gallery.

From the Bride… Such a beautiful, beautiful day to start the rest of my life! It was actually raining almost all day, until about 30 minutes before our 5:00 pm wedding. The rain stopped, the clouds moved, and the sun came out right as the wedding started.

Neverland Farm is settled in a small valley in North Georgia, off a dirt path that’s off the beaten path, off the dirt road that leads to the backwoods highway. Literally. As soon as my car hit the dirt path and the trees parted, I started bawling like I had just come home after a long trip away. 

I made my flower girl dresses, as well as made/put together the ring bearer picnic basket and pillow. I also made the bridesmaids’ jewelry, and as a ‘special’ treat for the guests, I raided thrift stores for months prior and started baby peanut seedlings for the guests to take home and grow!
