Down Home Country Wedding

We are so excited to share Michelle and Troy’s Washington country style wedding with you! There are so many special details to this day, and Melissa Tomeoni of Soul Mates Photo was so kind to share with us.

There are so many fun facts about their special day, read onto hear all about them. First, Michelle’s dad artfully created her altar by hand. After the ceremony and the fun began, Michelle toasted her new husband with a shot of Jack. Can you imagine Michelle and her sister speeding around the dance floor to the electric slide? Super cute for sure! I’m not sure which of these elements make my skin tingle and my heart smile but all of them have a dash of country and a whole lot of fun.

The bridesmaids were adorned in cowboy boots, crochet dresses and bouquets complete with wheat. The bride not only boasted her engagement ring but a promise ring made to resemble a horse’s bit. The guys looked ruggedly handsome in their cowboy boots, hats and belt buckles and while drinking from canning jars. Over the top, just how we like it.

Michelle and Troy married at the Wine & Roses Country Estate the perfect setting for a country style wedding. As guests arrived they perched on hay bales and the isle runner was made of canvas. Michelle’s dad drove her to the aisle in his classic pickup and she left in her new husband’s raised truck. A perfect exit for a backyard country wedding.

Atlanta Elegant Wedding

Meghan and David had a small budget and less than six months to plan their Atlanta wedding. With the gracious help from family and friends they were able to pull off their dream wedding. Meghan dove right in and created most of the wedding projects on her own. At times she was overwhelmed, but knew that the money she was saving and the rewards of DIY wedding projects would outweigh the stress. Photographed by Atlanta wedding photographer, Jeremy of Harwell Photography.

From the bride on her DIY projects: To start, I drew an oak tree that would be on our programs and party favors. My desire was to create an environment that was elegant, yet airy and whimsical. The venue was at my dear friend’s home. The setting was perfect for the vision and theme of the wedding. I spent time studying inspiring wedding blogs and etsy, which expanded my vision. My wonderful Aunts and friends did all the flower arrangements, bouquets and centerpieces and made the delicious cakes.
