This gorgeous Bride kept her nuptials feeling rustic at Cedarwood Weddings (where she is a former employee!), with vintage accents, ‘maids in shimmering neutrals, and a wildflower bouquet accented with gilded ferns (!). Even the handsome Groom let his hair down! Want more? Krista Lee Photography captured all the charm of this romantic garden fete in the full gallery here!
From Cedarwood Weddings… This wedding is a very special one to us, because the bride is a (former) Cedarwood employee and (current) ambassador for our venue. Kortni and Logan are engrained into the fabric of Cedarwood, and we are grateful for the heart and soul Kortni contributed to so many Cedarwood weddings and our opportunity to help design a sophisticated garden wedding at our historic estate that is just as graceful as she is.
The late summer wedding is beautifully photographed in film by Krista Lee Photography and the styling is refined countryside gracefulness, including an outdoor ceremony and al fresco reception. Hand lettered invitations, a hanging champagne bar greeting guests, bridesmaids dressed in on-trend, metallic-embellished dresses, and foilage+floral garlands decorating spaces from the altar, to tables to bar. Even the historic house and barn donned fresh greenery. Ring bearer antics down the aisle, flower girls’ boho headpieces, the bride’s gorgeous loose curls and (musician) groom’s late night serenade are all part of this casually refined southern soirée.
From the beautiful Bride… I’m definitely one of those mushy, hopeless romantics. I do believe in fate! Three years ago, in our college town, Logan walked into my work with a group of his buddies. We both noticed each other right away and locked eyes. We had never met before and after finally working up the courage to ask me out; he walks up to me with hands in his pockets and asks to take me out for coffee. Which if anyone knows me, I’m obsessed with coffee, so naturally I said yes! He told his friends that night that he was going to marry me before even speaking to me. FATE! He didn’t wait the stupid 3 day rule that most guys stick to. He called me the next day to set up our date. So getting to know each other on our first date (with all the getting to know each other questions), we discovered that our moms were best friends in high school. FATE! Obviously, they had lost touch over the years, but after all this time, we discovered we were both from around the same area, yet had never met each other until now. Timing is truly everything. We fell fast for each other; that all-consuming love that takes your breath away, makes your heart skip a beat, and makes your tummy flop! MUSHY, I told you!:). And yes, our moms are reunited and best friends, once again!
