From the Bride… Nolan and I were married on one of the most beautiful September days we have ever seen. Surrounded by family, closest friends, and the most beautiful backdrop, we proclaimed our love for each other and our intentions to spend the rest of our lives together. It was perfect. The decision of where to get married was easy for us the moment we laid eyes on Oak Hill. The beautiful plantation home perfectly represented Nolan’s Southern roots and the European style gardens captured my love for all things romantic and cultural.
Walking through the grounds, we were nothing short of enchanted. We tried very hard to keep this in mind when planning the details of our day. We wanted to create an environment that equally embodied our love for adventure as well as our deep ties to the South. Dinner was served family style in bowls passed from guest to guest and the venue was decorated with the copper and heirlooms my family has accumulated on their travels. We gave out Georgia peaches as well as the more exotic pomegranates as favors. Another personal touch is the compass we chose as the emblem for our day- it acts as a constant reminder to venture and explore together while always leading us faithfully back home.
If I could extend any advice to future brides it would be to decide right now that you will enjoy your wedding, no matter what. Within a week of the wedding, our car went kaput, we had immediate family in the hospital, and our reception centerpieces fell through completely (a monumental effort by family, our florist, and coordinator ensured that our tables were still beautiful!). However, Nolan and I made the decision long beforehand that no matter what, our day would be a celebration of our love and nothing could put a damper on that!

I love a pop of color as much as the next girl, but sometimes an all-white palette is the prettiest way to go. Take this fairytale Biltmore Ballroom wedding, for example. Jade Lee Events crafted a perfect day without an inch of color in sight. And with stationery goodies by Paper Daises plus captures from Sean Money + Elizabeth Fay, the full gallery is truly the best place to be.

From the Bride… Avi and I dated across the world for a year a half (filled with Skype, texts, middle of the night phone calls and lots of travel) before he moved to Atlanta and a few years later popped the question. We really felt like making us work was a true testament to our commitment and we wanted our wedding celebration to show that.
We wanted this day to reflect us, we wanted our guests to feel comfortable, to witness the rich tradition a Jewish wedding entails, and we wanted to throw a party that we wanted to attend. We were so lucky to have guests from all over the world join us, and we wanted each one of them to feel special and enjoy this celebration we worked so hard for.
We hired the fabulous Jade Lee very early in the process; we instantly clicked and she executed every last detail (planning and décor) perfectly. My style is soft and romantic, and I knew I wanted a timeless feel with lots of white and natural décor. Jade seamlessly incorporated all of my favorite things, hydrangeas, orchids, candles, pretty little monograms plus a few special details we can hold onto. We picked the beautiful Biltmore Ballrooms as a venue because of its sheer beauty and historic architectural detail. We wanted a clean, white garden inspired elegant feel and the Biltmore provided exactly that. Sean Money + Elizabeth Fay were the perfect duo to capture our day with a rustic and artistic eye and were an absolute pleasure to work with. With Jade’s help, we had an entire team of vendors contribute to every last detail to make the day even better than we had imagined and we wouldn’t change a thing!

From Haley Sheffield…A day spent with Bobby and Kaylee is sure to make your heart warm and your spirits bright.
After their first two “Married Christmases” hit the Pinterest world like a storm (here and here), Kaylee decided to take this year’s Christmas home (where the heart is, of course), highlighting “a day in the life” during Kaylee’s favorite time of year!
They started their day with breakfast in bed, sharing their his-and-hers take on a classic pancake. Kaylee’s with Christmas-colored M&Ms and Bobby’s with bacon, of course. Typical for their average morning, they were joined by their three daschunds, Nina, Beasley, and Dolce. Never a dull moment in the McCollough home with these pups! Next, they decided to decorate the house for Christmas! Kaylee’s love for all things bright and ban.do (as you can see on her fashion blog, Kaylee Daily), inspired their Christmas decor this year–filled with fun pinks and teals and yellows! Such a fun spin off the traditional green and red. They ended the day with a backyard fire, complete with s’mores and snuggling!
