Southern Georgia Peach Wedding (Lindsey & Donald’s Wedding by Kenney Photography)
To take a first look at Lindsey and Donald – you see a very classy looking couple….and for sure – they were. But this couple certainly had a fun side to them. Fun with each other and a determination to have a wonderful upbeat time with their guest on wedding day.
Prep time with the girls at the farmhouse starts the day off with giggles and primping. Decorating at the barn is being handled by me and Jill so it allows Lindsey just to have fun and of course to feel like a magazine model for a day with her photographer (Kenney Photography). Every girl needs to have this opportunity.
I don’t know the story behind this bit of a prank but this picture was part of their “early reveal” and it certainly gets the “most unique award” for the category. As you can see – Lindsey and Donald like to think outside the box and put their own twist to things.
The wedding ceremony was under the grove – the men all looked so dapper in their deep navy attire – and the ladies – oooh, don’tcha just love that fuschia!
Decorating for Lindsey’s special day was a fun mix of vintage with a touch of elegance. She wanted the old silver teapots for her table decor in honor of her mother. She opted for the vintage china collection too to bring that bit of elegance then to her reception. We had wash tins with vintage lace in them as the “gift tubs”. We added touches of silver and fuschia everywhere. She also wanted us to incorporate peaches in to the decor. Though she wanted lots of babies breath for her flower bouquets she did love the idea of adding our Cox’s Comb fuchsia flowers to them to bring out the colors of her bridesmaid’s dresses. That match up couldn’t have been any more perfect! We added a touch of those same colors throughout – and wow….I love the way it turned out.
Part of the peach interest was that a good Georgia southern peach has that touch of fuschia in it plus Lindsey desperately wanted a peachy Sangria bar. So – a Sangria Bar she got. The funky sign and the old turquoise hutch made for a great bar set up so that guest could add whatever bits of fruit that they wanted. Appetizer hour automatically became festive with the colors, the smells, the choices, and the wonderful food.
Plenty of dancing, laughing, food, and sparklers. Mimi’s Guest House hosted the Honey Moon Suite – fortunately that photo session ended early!
The night ended but the journey has just begun. Thank you Lindsey and Donald for sharing your day with us. ~ Margie
