Horses, barbecue, Elvis… could it get any more perfectly southern than this? Christian and Anna celebrated their wedding day at a Georgia Polo Farm with the amazing Laura Leslie tagging along for posterity, and pulled color inspiration from every wildflower under the sun. The result is a truly colorful authentic Georgian affair!
From the bride, Anna: I love animals so to have our wedding surrounded by horses, dogs and pigs, was ideal. And we were married in front of a barn! Our wedding leaned a little more towards the non-traditional. However, I did have my daddy walk me down the isle and give me away. Christian and I also shared our first dance to the tune of Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Also, it wouldn’t be a southern wedding without serving some delicious BBQ at the reception!
I first saw my wedding dress online and adored it. It was simple and classic but still had a princess feel to it. I discovered it was from David’s Bridal and the very next day I went down there and tried it on. I knew immediately it was “the one.”
I wanted our wedding to have a very relaxed feel to it so I didn’t want the traditional wedding cake or rigid flower center pieces. Instead we decided on a variety of flavors of cupcakes instead of our cake. To add even more variation to the reception we searched antique store for old tin cans to arrange the flowers in. I think they really added a brightness and sense of fun to the whole event.
For me the most memorable moment for us was our first look photo shoot. We really liked the idea of seeing each other for the first time being a more intimate and special moment. Being able too see the look on Christian’s face and hug him and kiss was definitely the most memorable part of the day.
