Georgia Lodge Wedding

Given that the groom in today’s wedding is a photographer himself, Sara and Mike knew they wanted to focus the bulk of their wedding budget in the photography. They brought along Julia Robbs with Our Labor of Love to capture their wedding day (and beautifully, I might add), and set off to wed in the woods an hour outside of Atlanta. With an outside ceremony and a lodge reception, how could it be anything less than perfection?

From the bride, Sara: We envisioned a rustic wedding that had a vintage flair. We wanted the wedding to feel very laid back and inviting with a mix of the traditional and un-traditional.

My husband wood-burned our guest book cover, as well as our signs for the wedding, and our last name onto a wooden milk crate that was used to receive cards. I hand made a 8ft by 8ft backdrop made entirely of white paper flowers for our photobooth.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? 1. Plan Early, Plan Often. 2. Do it your way. Let your wedding reflect who you are as a couple and it is bound to be a good time. 3. Consider transportation methods for guests if you are getting married in the country or another remote area and are serving beer and wine. We got a shuttle to take guests from the wedding back to the hotel, and because of that our dance floor was rockin’ all night! 4. Don’t skimp on photography and consider getting a videographer who will do creative filming. It is so worth it, trust me!!
