From Brita Photography... This amazing DIY wedding that was filled with beautiful, rustic details. From mason jars and vintage Coke decorations, wooden crates and burlap ribbon around the cake stand (made and cut from a tree), and elegant flower centerpieces, everything was beautifully created by the bride (along with help from her bridesmaids). The groomsmen wore green bow ties with shiny brown shoes, along with cotton boutonnieres. Their rustic wedding was completely Southern inspired. Christina and Brent are the bride and groom that every photographer dreams of working with. They were married at the most romantic location in North Georgia — the community of Big Canoe is filled with rolling hills, lakes and beautiful, big trees. The dogwood trees were blooming, the lakes were so calming and serene, and the mountains filled the horizon. It was the perfect day for Christina and Brent's wedding! We started off in Goldfinch point and made our way around a lot of the community (all the roads of Big Canoe span over 200 miles...) to the marina. After their ceremony, we made our way down to Chimney's for the reception, stopping along the way for romantic pictures under the blooming dogwood trees. The wedding reception in Chimney's was so cozy and rustic, with burlap and DIY details. Complete with an amazing band, great food and drinks and King of Pops, the dance floor wasn't empty once! It was definitely a celebration to remember.
