Today’s enchanting wedding is from the lovely Paula and Adam, and features two of my absolute favourite wedding delights; festoon lighting and a dessert table, be still my beating heart!
The whole day was conducted under clear Georgia skies, in the grounds of Ashford Manor where Adam was working when he first met Paula. There is just so much gorgeous greenery, not only from the elegant trees framing the ceremony, but also reflected in the bridesmaids all-green bouquets and the amazing decorations that extend the length of the banquet tables. The wooden backdrop for the ceremony and board for the table plan incorporate the surroundings beautifully, with golden accents adding a subtle shimmer to complete the scheme.
Then there’s Paula and how radiant does she look! Her engagement ring is a real show-stopper (watch out for the close ups – wowser!) and her light, ethereal gown is complemented perfectly by the bridesmaids’ mismatched mink dresses. The girls’ burgundy nails perfectly pick out the deep wine colours in Paula’s bouquet as does Adam’s floral tie with gold clip to match Paula’s delicate belt. I know you’ll just love Sowing Clover‘s photography, particularly those first-look shots (hankies at the ready!)
FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER | Paula and Adam met through mutual friends in college while Adam was working for the venue, Ashford Manor, on weekends. So when the time came for them to marry they decided the only fitting place to do it would be at Ashford Manor. The owners of the property were planning on discontinuing the use of their property as a wedding venue and Paula and Adam had the pleasure of having the last wedding ever on that property after years of other weddings coming through.
