It’s plain. And it’s simple. Georgia weddings are awesome. So when you have a beautiful bride in boots, dazzlingly gorgeous bridesmaids in blush & boots, a stunning garden outside of Atlanta, and crazy splendid Colonial House flowers, they’re awesome and a whole lot more. Take this fabulous ceremony captured by Odaly Mendez Photography. Simply breathtaking, understated and infused with elegance, according to Style Me Pretty it’s “garden party glam with a big ol’ side of southern charm.” I honestly can’t agree more.

Join me in the SMP gallery for the case in point. You’re gonna love it.

From Odalys Mendez PhotographyJennifer and Ryan wanted to create a feeling of tradition and comfort for their guests. The wedding took place at an old estate nestled among lush gardens South of Atlanta, Georgia. The Bride and her mother brought several antiques to this dreamy site that have been in their family for many generations, including the Bride’s late grandmother’s rocking chairs and quilts. When entering the ceremony site, guests were greeted by benches adorned with vintage pieces and candlelight scattered throughout the venue. The bride and groom’s sweetheart table was decorated with family antiques as well, set with heirloom china and embellished with whimsical florals and hand-crocheted garlands.

The brides gown, by Pronovias, was a romantic column of lace that tied into the feel of the day. She kept her hair and jewelry simple and carried a brooch bouquet she made herself, and featured her grandmother’s brooches. All the flowers arrangements we unique, and resembled hand-picked blooms set in a collection of antique vases and serving pieces. The menu was a selection of the Bride and Groom’s favorite comfort foods, such as pork tenderloin and macaroni and cheese. Guests danced the night away under the stars.
