Katie and Chase’s Atlanta Georgia wedding this past Saturday was the official kick off to the spring wedding season! Of course, it wouldn’t have been a spring wedding without April showers. Thankfully the weather was in our favor and pushed on by just as the event was set to begin.
The day started with the bride getting ready in the very bedroom she grew up in. With her sisters and Mother close by, the girls sipped mimosas as the air buzzed with excitement for the coming ceremony.
After hair and makeup, the Mother-of-the-Bride helped her into her stunning gown. Just like Katie, the gown was a gorgeous classic. Simple, yet extremely chic. After getting dressed the bride had a couple other first looks to get to before her grande reveal to her Groom. Her sisters and Father held back tears at first sight.
The family started to take their seats and soon Katie would be meeting Chase at their wedding alter.
The small backyard wedding took place at the brides childhood home. The location couldn’t have been more picturesque. Lush greenery covered the backyard, setting the scene for the bride to enter down a brick staircase her and her siblings grew up playing on.
The ceremony was sweet and thoughtful, as the pastor spoke on the importance of coming together united in a Godly marriage.
After the ring exchange and (most importantly) the kiss, the couple celebrated with a bottle of champagne and their furry corgi cohost.
Next were pictures, more kisses, mingling, and a lot of congratulations as the party settled down for an intimate plated dinner. The table was set with beautiful floral arrangements, her parents fine china, and my personal favorite – her mothers own Herend collection. *Cue the lovebird figurine*.
Following dinner the couple listened to speeches, or rather a speech and a very impressive poem thoughtfully written by Katie’s older sister that played homage to the families traditional Christmas card poem. (Maybe this was a “had to be there moment” to understand how incredible it really was.)
Cake and dancing followed and we all found out just how great Chase’s Mother and Father were on a dance floor.
The evening ended with a sparkler exit turned firework work show. Still not quiet sure if the fireworks were intentional or not, but never-the-less they made the sendoff memorable.
Chase and Katie, we wish you the happiest marriage. Continue to be silly and I’m sure the rest will come naturally!
