One of my very best girlfriends was married this past weekend in what turned out to be one of the loveliest weddings I've seen!
She is such a classically beautiful person and that style was definitely reflected in all of her wedding design choices.
Everything got kicked off Friday at 11:30 for a bridal brunch. I wasn't sure whether to bring my big camera or not, but as soon as I arrived, the bride told me her mom's camera battery just died and that she would love it if I could capture some shots. Done and done!
Kerry gifted the bridal party Gigi New York clutches in black with our gold monogram stamped on them. LOVE.
This last one was an accidental photo that someone took of our feet but I love it :)
The rehearsal dinner that night was so much fun and featured pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, banana pudding in mini mason jars, a bluegrass band, and a montage of video toasts that all of us sent in as a surprise to the bride and groom.
The next day we all met at Wilson's on Washington to have a little lunch and get hair and makeup done.
That photo above ... I have never seen my friend look so positively stunning.
We headed to the reception site to get ready for the evening before taking a trolley to the church.
The best part was, we got a sneak preview of the reception room. Perfection.
Yes, those are matte gold sequins on the tablecloth in the table below. So fun.
They also had pillows with their custom wedding logo done.
The band out of Atlanta was doing soundcheck and they were AWESOME.
The groom's car made the perfect getaway vehicle!
We had about two hours at the church before their wedding so we relaxed and played Heads Up on my phone.
After the ceremony and photographs, the bridesmaids and groomsmen joined the new Mr. and Mrs. in the trolley, popped some champagne (cans) and headed to the Poinsett Club.
We had a blast on the dance floor. The groom picked the perfect band. I love this photo my friend Linds took.
She also snapped this one which is hilarious. Looks like my friend Ash and I are smooching. We are just close talkers. :)
After we sent the bride and groom off with a rose-petal departure, we had the great (?) idea to head to a champagne bar downtown. We were only there for a bit before I lined up our return home with Uber. That's what I'm doing below in the photo, not being antisocial on my phone ;)
So three cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs.! I'm a smidge sad this wedding is over as I was looking forward to it so much. It was the perfect celebration and reunion of friends!
