Lauren and Matt’s rustic wedding at the Athens wedding venue Historic Smithonia Farm was full of rustic charm that left guests with favors to hold onto to always remind them of the special day. After Pine + Pen Design created the perfect invitations and Candace for Atlanta based luxury wedding planner, Chancey Charm planned every detail, the big day was finally here. Spending the day getting pampered with her bridesmaids, Lauren sat patiently as Tame Style Bar worked on her hair and makeup before putting on her Justin Alexander wedding gown that cascaded to the floor with a train following behind. Lauren rallied her bridesmaids and Matt gathered his groomsmen while guests took their seats for the indoor ceremony where the couple said ‘I do’ in front of a floral backdrop created by Kristine Finke for Bold American Events. As a way to make guests feel special on this couple’s day, Lauren and Matt gave out personalized sunglasses, can koozies and welcome goody bags with an Athens guidebook inside. After the ceremony, it was time to let loose at the reception where Hairy Dawg, the UGA mascot, made a guest appearance, surprising the bride and groom. Guests dined on fine food from Bold American Events Catering followed by cake from Cecilia Cakes. The reception also had a live band for guests to dance to and a photo booth from ShutterBooth Atlanta where guests could snap a quick pic. Atlanta based wedding photographer, Rustic White Photography captured every memorable moment in their signature airy, natural-light filled style. The Mr. and Mrs. exited through a sparkler tunnel formed by their loved ones before escaping in their vintage getaway car.
