After a chance meeting that took place on a Colorado ski trip that almost happen, to a little over a year whirlwind romance that included visits to Greece, Turks and Caicos, Hawaii and Mexico, Frederick proposed to Sherri Thanksgiving weekend. What was the next stop for this jet setting couple? A glamorous wedding and celebration at the Lovely Lane Chapel on the St. Simons Island wedding venue, Epworth by the Sea, a little white chapel she grew up dreaming about as a little girl. Lace and roses only enhanced the simple beauty of the chapel and the old oak trees embellished with Spanish moss created an intimate, romantic and understated elegance for this destined couple to exchange their vows. Sherri wore an elegant up-do with a gorgeous red lip styled by Tia Majors with Style Seat. After saying ‘I Do’ in front of friends and family that traveled from as far away as Korea, guests were transported via trolley to Coastal Kitchen where they were treated to local cuisine including appetizers of roasted Georgia shrimp and sweet potato fritters among the appetizers and a choice a petite filet or black grouper paired with lobster risotto for the main course. If that wasn’t enough decadence, dessert was a four tier wedding cake created by Cakes by Mary Ann that included a layer of chocolate cake with raspberry filling. Everyone then danced the calories away as they celebrated the newly minted couple. Images by Atlanta wedding photographer, Sophia Barrett Studios and videography by Iris City Video!
Was there a specific theme or style? What inspired it?
Lace and roses. I’ve always wanted to get married in a little white chapel. I found the perfect one with Lovely Lane Chapel at Epworth By the Sea. To complement the chapel I thought of lace with its timeless elegance and roses, which to me epitomize beauty, love and passion.
What was the most memorable moment?
Having most of our loved ones in attendance. This included my 91-year-old aunt from Washington D.C. and my husband’s grandmother from Korea.
Did you DIY any of the details?
I handmade the programs and menus. The programs were sewn. I made the cover from a textured paper similar to papyrus with unfinished edges. I added a piece of lace and crimson bow as accents to the cover. The menus were made from the same paper and had the appearance of being handwritten.
