On an October evening in the mountains of West Georgia, our team was preparing for a fabulous boho wedding. Although August and Zach were preparing for their dream day, it wasn’t so dreamy at first. Their wedding planning journey was filled with so much adversity including cancelling their out-of-state destination wedding. They kept their heads held high and were determined to have an amazing time at their wedding, which went a little something like this.
They made the most of it all by doing a shoot in North Carolina first, then
The Calm Before the Storm
At first, everything was calm. The slight drizzling couldn’t keep our team down as we set up for the ceremony. While the girls were getting ready in the house next door, the men started to arrive in the vintage groom’s suite. The view at The Overlook was BREATHTAKING! The name doesn’t do the place justice- not only does it overlook beautiful mountain tops, it has a gorgeous pavilion area, a peaceful waterfall, and a cute antique truck. It’s basically a boho queen’s dream and that’s exactly what August was!
Just as the ceremony was about to begin, (*cue monsoon) the rain came down. Those Georgia storms were not playing! Our team did the best we could to keep the venue looking just as beautiful as before while guests started piling into the pavilion. As we held umbrellas
over August and her dad, the pair walked down the aisle. The show stopping moment: August’s beautifully designed gown! As the two said their vows, the rain kept getting louder and louder but, to put it in August’s words, it was as if they had to listen extra hard to the promises they were making to each other for life. How romantic is that? Behind them hung dramatic drapery and stood our wooden triangle arbor filled with pampas, dusty colored roses, and greens. The sandy color palette shined with the bridesmaids’ burnt orange gowns and the groomsmen’s pampas boutonnieres.
The ceremony was quickly flipped into a gorgeous reception space. The tables were covered in eclectic, amber glassware, gold moon table numbers, and vintage, brass candlesticks. Some of our favorite décor highlights included the champagne wall with the couple’s initials in neon lights, the record player guestbook, and the celestial sign that described August and Zach’s love: “You are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.” The charcuterie table was a fan favorite and The Queso Truck was probably some of the best tacos we ever had in our lives! There was even a cute little prosecco van that served drinks all night long.
Under the Moonlight
As the evening continued, family and friends were having so much fun on the dance floor. We even had to sneak in a few ‘behind the scenes’ dance moves ourselves! The bride and groom went off into the night with a sparkler sendoff and a ride in a vintage, red Chevy. Despite everything that didn’t go to plan, the wedding was a hit. Although it was a night filled with lots of rain, it was a night filled with so much more love. We were so happy to work with a couple as sweet as August and Zach and we wish them all the happiness in their new life together. Congratulations guys!
