honor the grandparents

My grandparents were definitely the roots of my family and after the passing of each of them I knew I wanted to honor them in a huge way. They were the ones who taught me to dream, work hard, go to church, put God and family first, and most importantly love. Their love story begin on the “last day of ’44″ as they joined hands in marriage and settled down in Tignall where they began a family. My Grandpa always referred to this day as the “best day of his life”. Their endless love continued to carry on even after my Grandpa passed away in 2008 and my Mema in 2013.

Outdoor church wedding vibe

My groom and I were married by my preacher of 20+years on a large farm under a tree with church pews for seating. I always wanted to mimic a church setting only outside. BBQ and homemade desserts made by family and friends were served just as they are every year at my church’s homecoming. Vintage themed centerpieces and memorabilia and photographs of our loved ones were used to decorate the lovely venue. We featured my Mema’s singer sewing machine and my Grandpa’s rocking chair and saw blade. We also honored my husband’s Daddy and Paw-Paw and a cousin and dear friend who have all joined God in Heaven. For our toast we shared a bottle of wine my husband’s mom and dad bought on their last family vacation before he passed. The plan was for them to drink it on their son’s wedding day.

Heart-warming rainbow story

At our reception, as we were announced as husband and wife in front of all our family and friends (on a perfectly sunny day), the clouds opened up as if it were Heaven’s gates and a beautiful rainbow appeared just as we began as first dance. A stream of tears immediately flowed down my face as I remembered what a rainbow meant to me. The day my Grandpa passed away, my family walked out of that hospital after weeks of fighting his death and a rainbow shined bright above us and we knew Grandpa was now “home” and as much as we would miss him we would be okay. It’s amazing the days we see rainbows, on hard days, days we hurt, and perfect days just as this. We had no doubt in our hearts that our loved ones were right there with us. And as we dance we held each other tight and both said that this day was the best day of our lives. And just as soon as the rainbow came it disappeared just as our song ended.

Breath Taking Decor

A ribbon canopy hung above the custom wood dance floor, which each table was ‘scaped with vibrantly colored flowers. Each guest had a unique glass bottle filled with olive oil that was the escort card. At each place setting was a baguette with the menu hand calligraphied. The guests used the olive oil for dipping that evening.

Eat Something Incredible

From Michele Coulon Dessertier: Dessert is not something you eat everyday, so make it worth your while….I would rather eat a small piece of something incredible than a lot of something not so great!

We love this philosophy and we could not agree more! And with a beautiful cake like Kamela and Kenneth’s barely frosted four tiered masterpiece you know you are about to eat something incredible! Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

Morning After Remedy

From Ever After Events: Guests danced, enjoyed the custom photo booth and making s’mores by the fire. When it was time to leave there was a sparkler send off where the couple sat on top of a convertible as they left their reception. Guests took home bags with organic muffins, fruit and Starbucks to enjoy in the morning.

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).
