Barnsley Gardens Resort

Jonathan and I were married on October 12, 2013 at Barnsley Gardens Resort in Adairsville, Georgia. Our search for a non­traditional yet elegant venue led us straight to Barnsley Gardens where we were able to find our ideal blend of history and class in this beautiful historic resort. The wedding ceremony was held at the historic ruins of the old Barnsley estate with the ethereal sound of classically­ trained stringed quartet Act of Congress (AOC) filling the gardens.

Beauty Within Ruins

Following the ceremony, the reception was held within the ruins and on an adjacent, tented lawn. We wanted to maintain some of the traditional elements of a Southern wedding with an atmosphere that still felt open and relaxed. Barnsley provided just that. The reception was catered by Barnsley chefs and constructed of stations selected based on our taste for fresh, flavorful food.

Play Lively Bluegrass Music

The music was lively and blue­grass in its feel, also played by AOC, with dancing that carried us well into the night. The event design was inspired by the wedding gown itself with elements of vintage, 1920′s charm conveyed through a softer, romantic palette (a theme that was also important in the design of our stationery).

Fruitful Fall Wedding Ideas

fruitful wedding ideas

The theme  of our next inspiration shoot was “fruitful and abundant,” because as Simply Roses, the florist and concept designer behind this beautiful afternoon, said, that is what we want our lives to be How lovely is that?

The models for this shoot were newlyweds, five months married, and a couple who are truly striving to live out a marriage that is fruitful rich in love and generosity. The color palette was awash with rich berry hues and soft jewel tones that popped against the sunset light. Such lovely inspiration for a fruitful fall wedding. Click here to see the entire shoot you will not want to miss the cake. It is truly spectacular.

From The Hons Photography:
We don’t do the cheesy photos. We love Pinterest for inspiration, not replication. We want to photograph using the natural light to our advantage and capturing organic moments. Our goal is to give clients the information necessary to help them get the most epic possible images from their wedding. We want to be involved in your planning. We like to make suggestions, we like to offer ideas, and we will tell you if something isn’t visually appealing (Lighting, decor, etc). We want to deliver you amazing photographs, so we keep it honest in order to provide that. Nothing with us is posed. We will “direct” you in ways that feel natural for photos but that’s the extent of it. If you want a photo of your bridal party “jumping in the air” -then we may not be the photographers for you. We want you to look back on these photos and remember how you felt. Our job is to tell a story with the movement of your wedding day and capturing all the bundles of emotions. We look forward to hearing from you.
