I got caught up in traffic madness in Atlanta last week and have not been visiting blogs at all, so I'll be catching up while I adjust to the "New Normal" of navigating to and from work without I-85. For those who haven't heard about it, more here.
Meanwhile - a few scenes from the wedding weekend:
The day before the wedding, my sister and I were watching a crew set up for the wedding from her bedroom window (setting up tables and chairs for the reception, stringing lights on the outdoor cook shed, where the band would play, etc.) She said, "This is like a Steel Magnolias moment!"
Remember the tree from the prior post? There it is ahead, waiting for the big moment, as guests arrive.
I've never seen this property look so park-like. They consider the property to be a deer sanctuary - hunting is off limits, so it's not unusual for them to wander through. I imaged them off in the woods, during the ceremony, peering out at the festivities.
The church pews were loaned to the bride by a friend, for the family to sit in during the ceremony. I loved the mason jars with baby's breath hanging on the edge of the pews.
And after the ceremony, as the family awaited being photographed as a (big) group. The hunting buggy in the background there brought the bride and her father to the ceremony spot. It's from the plantation where she works.
It was all so gorgeous - one of the most beautiful weddings I've every attended. And the reception was great fun. The best part was seeing a couple so dedicated to each other and the looks on their faces when she was walking forward to marry him.
